375ml bottle into snifter. Couple year old bottle.

A: Pours a clear apricot orange with a very short lived off-white head.
S: Tons of sweet and fruity esters mix with dry yeast, mild spice, and woody oak. I also get notes of ripe banana yeast that smells like banana ice cream.
T: Fruity and tart with flavors of earthy spice, mildly funky yeast, and dry grains. There is an underlying apple juice quality that I'm not sure I love. The finish has a bright tartness to it along with a sour quality reminiscent of fruit rind and brett. The aftertaste is sweet and fruity.
M: Scrubbing carbonation, medium-full body with a slick and drying mouthfeel that has a nice chew to it. Drinks well, but on the sweeter side.
O: A delicious saison. Clean and easy to drink, but nothing earth shattering. Just the right amount of funk and tartness.

A: Nice looking bright orange, not transparent but at the same time no discernable floating chunks. Had is white and moderate in size.

A: Sweet and tart, spice and flowers. There's certainly a nice pleasant fragrant farmhouse aroma. Fun for sniffing... Light sweetness with a touch of banana cream hidden within the spice.

T: Taste begins tart. Then bits of floral shine through wIth the tart fruit. A little bit of white wine, lemon, and some faint earthinesss.

Overall I would most certainly get this again.

2014 BATCH 13

Foggy golden yellow, topped by a small, beautifully creamy white head. Deeply funky, somewhat acetic aromas featuring musty earth, barnyard, damp hay, oak, and grape. Flavor is equally funky, but with a larger tart lemon note through the middle, grapes, and grapefruit. Some wheaty grain and grassy freshness, but mostly bright citrus acidity and funk. Medium-light with some pretty serious pucker, leaving the gum line dry. Very nice. Not exactly something I would consider within the realm of Saison, but good nevertheless.

Bright, citrusy and very tart saison. One of the best examples I've tried. Picked up a bunch of Crooked Stave when my liquor store began stocking it and, despite the steep price tag, have to say I'm glad I did.

Reviewed with Three Lions from a 375ml,
Look: To Borrow from a Guinness add Brilliant!! Super bright white head! Lemon/citrus color. Lots of yummy yummy floating viscous debris. Wow just wow is all I can really say!
Smell: Peppers plural black, white etc. lemon, ginger, coriander etc. so much going on here it's overwhelm my nose. I'm Not complaining though it works. I'm missing a lot here in description but wow!
Taste: Ok so I said to Three Lions one tenth of the smell in the taste makes this beer stupendous. It's so much more than that though. My second Crooked Stave and I have to say the taste matches the hype. I know the college dissertation was on Brett but come on how do you figure out how to balance something wild so well. Lemon/yup, pepper/definitely, multiple other fruits (stone, earth, citrus) absofreekinlutely, plus plus plus!!!
Feel: I'm not a woman but I now know what multiples at once feel like!! Carbonation perfect, smooth with bite, sour with sweet!!! God damn it why isn't this sold in Ma.
Overall: Well I'm leaving what I said above to say it all and a little Dazed and Confused reference Alright Aalright, Aaaalllright!!!
