Poured 2014 batch 10 bottle into Lost Abbey Teku

A-Pours a hazy golden/orange color with about a 1/2 finger white head. Decent lacing.

S-Aroma is incredible with smells of citrus , oak, hay, apple, grapes, and some pear.

T-Taste is similar to the aroma but more of the fruit and the oak.

M- Mouthfeel has a medium body and very mic it’s easy to drink and has very nice carbonation.

O-First time trying Crooked Stave. Overall a great saison love the oak. Will get some more.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Back label says 2014 Batch 13.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Minimal lacing.

S- Soily, musty barnyard aroma with a hint of lactic acid. Very rustic-smelling indeed.

T- Starts out slightly tart with more of that earthy Brett funk and turns to a trace of almost rotten egg taste in the finish, but not in a bad way...if that makes sense. Complex, to say the least as there's fruitiness, a touch of sour, hay and a slight bitterness. All while being incredibly drinkable.

M- Tangy, somewhat dry and zesty. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Never have I encountered a beer with such a clean/dirty duality in the flavor. The Brett presence is moderate but impactful as it complements all the other elements present. Not the best Brett beer I've ever had but it's certainly in the top ten. This is the first beer I've had by Crooked Stave and I can't wait to seek out more of them.

Batch 11 2014

A: Pours a slightly hazed amber/orange color. A tiny, bubbly white head forms, and fizzles out in a second. Seriously lacking in retention and lace.
S: Earthy, musty yeast. An acidic, nondescript fruity aroma, maybe cherries? Some wood aromas linger.
T: A sour and acidic bite up front. Tart cherries and tannins, but other than that pretty much nondescript. Wood lingers in the finish which makes everything murky and muddled.
M/D: A light body with moderate to high carbonation. Really watery, muddled, tannin like and blah. No definition here. The acidity itself is not that unpleasant, but really nothing else perks my interest. Which makes this a bit of a chore to finish.

Just a nondescript acidic and sour note with no definition. Of my recent Crooked Stave get, I looked forward to this the most but ended up the most disappointed. I have another bottle, so I will be giving it another try, but this left me flat.
