look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy orange hue, with a thin, bubbly, white head that dissipates quickly, save for a thin whispy layer.

S: An earthy musty aroma, with a tart citrusy bite. No real hint of the oak coming through and just a very light funk.

T: A sharp tartness, apples, lemon peel, and a very light brett funk. Smooth finish from the oak, and a subtle sweetness too.

M: Light crisp body, with very prickly carbonation. Very dry finish.

O: Refreshingly tart and lightly funky. It's very good but not quite great. Nonetheless though, another very solid offering from Crooked Stave.

Batch 4, 2013 bottle

Appearance- Pours a hazy, golden orange, with a fluffy white head that fades to a wispy cap.

Smell- Floral, with some lightly funky and earthy fruitiness up front, an orange like tang, and just a touch of oak. Really nice stuff.

Taste- Starts off with a citrusy sourness that is very tame and not overwhelming at all, a mild funk/must, and has a slight bitterness on the finish that really rounds everything off.

Mouthfeel- Light, crisp, with prickly carbonation with a dry finish.

Overall- Everything feels likes it's exactly where it belongs, and in the perfect amounts. Nothing is overwhelming, and I'm not looking for more of any aspect in this beer. Seriously impressed with this, I'm very much looking forward to trying more CS stuff.

Served from a 375ml bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Appearance- Copper/orange with two fingers of bubbly white head that lasted half a minute. Left some great lacing.

Smell- Brett, lemon, cider vinegar, light oaky booze, something floral and earthy. Very funky and brett forward.

Taste- Funky lemons and apples, light vinegar, light oak, heavy brett. Its a near perfect brett saison.

Mouthfeel- Ample carbonation, light tart pucker, dry.

Overall- Damn near perfect. Akin to a tarter Arthur, but still unique in its own right. Phenomonal.

Pours a cloudy golden straw color with a pillowy white head that dissipated into a solid cap.

The aroma is lightly tart with some farmhouse notes. Light lemon, tart apple and oak.

The flavor has tart apple lemon and oak. There is an apple juice sweetness as well. O perhaps some white grape juice. Light funk but not much else from the yeast.

The feel is light to moderate with fizzy carbonation. Quite sweet on the palate but has plenty of a tart offset. Slightly sticky in the finish.

Another tart saison from these folks. A little sweet with a big white grape presence.

Elated that Crooked Stave has begun distributing in NY. This was the first of theirs I tried. Bottle into a pint glass.

A - Fine straw gold, cloudy and full. Fizzy full head that subsides with some lacing.

S - Saison notes of pepper, wheat bread, and grass mix with the sour lemon, apple and general horsey funk. Much less abrasive than a gueuze. Close your eyes and you’re picking macintoshes on a dewy summer morning.

T - First sip explodes with the tart fruitiness, which subsides into a mix of spicy bread and earth notes and a subtle hop bitterness that somehow hung on through the oak-barrel aging.

M - Impressive how this marries the mealy, sticky mouthfeel of a saison with the effervescence of a traditional sour.

O - This is really a wonderful hybrid that finds the best of the sour and the best of the saison. Less astringent than a traditional gueuze, funkier than a simple farmhouse beer. Great especially for someone new to sour beer.

Bottle sampled courtesy of a trade with Mitch from Colo.

Pours heavily hazed apricot, eggshell head, slight in size, leaving a fine bubble film, collar and a few minor tongues of stick.

Faint fruity nose, with a hint of a lactic bite.

Tasty saison, fruity, lightly spiced, again with a mild lactic bite/note. Flavorful and complex. Quality take on the style.

Very impressed with all the CS beers I've been tasting. Need to trade for more or wait for them to be distributed to NY state...

On tap at Belmont Station.

A: Cloudy dull yellow with a thin ring of head. Leaves some lacing on the glass.

N: Dense biscuit with a subtle sugar. Lemon zest and some of the oak. Decent.

T: Malty and sour combination. Lighter bitterness to round it out.

M: Lighter body with decent carbonation.

O: Don't have much to say about this, unfortunately. A nice beer, but it doesn't blow me away.
