2013 Batch 5 Bottle
A - Pours a darker pale, amber unfiltered color with an abundance of head. Lacing effect throughout.
S - Clean and fresh grass, earthy, with the Belgian yeast dominant notes.
T - Incredible taste upfront with a hearty light grain presence that quickly evolves into the tart of the sour character. Subtle earthy oak tinges and woody tannins really compliment the tartness. Delicious.
M - Complex mouthfeel is quite fun. Immediately the bubbles on the tongue bring about the transition of the gentle grassy grain to the tart, citrusy sour component. There's a warming effect at the very end that evolves to a wet texturing finish on the palate.
O - I'm new to trying the offerings of Crooked Stave, but the level of sour ales they are producing is on point. If I were ever introducing someone to the style, I would probably start here to really bring them in. Everything a sour farmhouse ale should have is provided here in full. Quite impressed.

Pours yellow-orange and cloudy. Looks like it could be a bit clearer with better bottle handling; I'd be a terrible bartender. Medium white head. Some lacing and pretty good retention. There's a thin layer of bubbles on top of the beer after a fair bit of time. The aroma is big on lemons, limes, underripe apricots, cherries and peaches, grapes, oak, earth, medium to mild funk and a nice dash of saison yeast spice. Smells nice and tart. There's a bit of yogurty flavor in there, but it comes off more fruity sour than anything. Taste starts out with limes and sour grapes and keeps building up with more tart fruit. Underripe stone fruit is prominent. Funk is somewhat more in the background, but there's a definite musty, barnyard-ish character in there. Quite dry, particularly in the finish. Aftertaste is tannic oak, lime rind, peppercorns, grass and light vinegar. Lots of tart fruit flavors bouncing around. It's only medium sour, and it's a pretty gentle ride, really. Light on the palate. Some pucker, though you do feel the vinegar on your teeth after a glass. Another very good bottle from CS.
