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!

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!
