2014 Batch 10

Appearance: Pours with a minimal head of about half a finger, which for the style surprised me. Could be the oak barrels knocking down some carbonation, but still odd. The color is a bold medium dark orange with a slightly cloudy body. Active carbonation while drinking is right were it should be.

Smell: Straw, medium bodied fruits, and wheat mesh well with tartness and dry, woody oak. Tropical fruit backbone builds on the body with continuous waves of grass and tartness attacking the drinker. Dry wood pops up on the back end and rides this one out.

Taste: As the beer hits the palate, a punchy tartness pops up but is quickly won over by rounded oak characteristics. That earthy woodiness continues to roll into the body but joins force with some dry grass and sprite fruits. The tartness loses the earthy oak and really has a clean flavor on the finish. Bright fruits show up again on the finish as well.

Mouthfeel: A pretty sessionable sour saison. Oak character is for the most part rounded but has some bright distinctive high points. Carbonation being on the lower end really allows the grass, fruit, and tartness to really shine through.

Overall: I really like the oak characteristics in this brew. Sour notes are rounded yet kept in check. Tasty base beer allows for it to develop well in the barrel. I actually got to enjoy this on tap and I preferred it in that format, but both are excellent. Well done Crooked Stave.

Bottle into my giant Piraat tulip.

Pale tangerine with a slight haze. One inch of dense, creamy white foam.

Subtle acidity is the main aroma component, but there's also hints of lemon peel, green apple and barnyard funk. Maybe a soft touch of white crackers as well.

This is the apogee of sourness in a Saison. So often the lacto is overdone -- the proportion here is perfect. A soft, vinegary kiss adds to the refreshment of this delicate brew, while notes of lemon jolly rancher, sweet pear and white bread add interest before a dry finish. Quenching.

Medium body, moderate prickly carbonation with a good amount of silky fizz. Alcohol is unnoticeable.

Beautiful balance of flavors he. It's not overly spiced, yeasty or dry -- just a solid, drinkable Saison. Wish this were in a 750 so I could time how quickly I make it through the bottle. This little one was gone within minutes.
