Holy jesus christ monkey balls. I've been wanting to try this for a while and it definitely lived up to the hype. Upfront sourness, juicy chardonnay, vanilla, oak, sweet honey, slightly acedic on the back end. Truly amazing. Light to medium body, insanely drinkable, and overall one of the best American wilds I have ever had.

Quick review from written notes, thanks Joe for sharing!

Murky yellow orange, peachy toned with champagne streamers rising, sheets of soft white foam lace in the glass, end of bottle pour was opaque.

Huge tropical passion fruit aromas and taste, fleshy peach pit, puckering sourness with a nicely dry finish. Light bodied and effervescent. Crisply sour and vibrant. This is a real contender, up there with Temptation to my taste. I could see the dry hop version being pretty interesting, in the same vein of Le Terroir.

Big thanks to JMBSH for this!!!!
12.7 oz bottle poured to a snifter

A- A hazy golden orange color with a two finger white head.

S- Sour, some funk, light fruits, apples, apricot, oak, some white wine.

T- Very sour, lemon, apricots, nice funk in the finish, some oak and white wine, definitely has a good amount of brett.

M- Light body, ton of carbonation.

O- This is my first beer from Crooked Stave and it is great. Very sour. Could be more balanced, would like a more funk, but still a amazing beer. Again big thanks to JMBSH for this one!
