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!

Thanks to dunt for sharing this!

White head. Golden orange in color.

Flavor is very sour and funky. A nice grape and wine flavor. A lot of peach and apricot flavors. Funky and fruity. It ends with an odd butterscotch flavor.

Mouthfeel: sour and tart. Lighter bodied.

Overall, this is a really nice sour. Very easy to drink with a lot of awesome fruit flavors. I am a big fan of this one!

A: A pale yellow and hazy body with a very thick and white head.

S: Very good. Very sharp esters and sour aromas. Perfectly balanced with a subtle sweet caramel sweetness.

T: It starts off as a very pleasant sour apple flavor and then it transitions to a perfect sour caramel flavor. This should be a measuring stick for all sour beers.

M: Nice heavy body with a very sharp carbonation.

O: Amazing sour. Get this one as soon as you can.
