375 mL bottle poured into a chalice. 2013 bottle, batch 4.

Appearance - Deep orange. Hazy. Big white head that leaves a chunky soapy collar and some light surface wisping.

Smell - Appley aroma. Slightly acidic. A bit of a metallic smell, too. Oaky and musty. Bretty.

Taste - Much less of the metallic notes here. Very fruity. Apples again. Lemony tang. Quite malty, surprisingly. The metallic flavor shows itself in the very end as the sourness drops off leaving metal.

Mouthfeel - Slick and a little heavier than I expected. Medium to medium heavy. Well carbonated.

Overall - Nice aside from the metallic flavor. Very malty, not what I expected.

A fantastic and tasty saison. It's got a lot more funk than most saisons; even Famtone. But it works and probably more closely reflects the original historical product. Crooked Stave has a good thing going. I'd love to see more of this kind of creativity and commitment.

About a finger of white head develops on the darker golden-orange body. Some lacing left and head falls apart a couple minutes in.

The smell on this is lovely. Lots of musty funky Brett comes out. Oak, white grape, citrus fruits.

Musty funk, slight tartness rears its head, citrus, grape, apple, oak.

Lighter bodied with plenty of carbonation and ends dry.

Great freaking beer.
