4.2/5  rDev +0.2%

Appearance: Pours a fairly clear goldenstraw; the head starts at an inch and quickly fades, though it leaves a few strips of lace in its shadow

Smell: Very funky and oaky, with a range of fruit tones, underneath - apricot, green apple, white wine grape

Taste: Funky Brett and lacto sourness, off the bat, bringing a vinegary tartness; underneath, there is an orchard of fruit flavors detected in the aromatics, with the oak barrel trailing behind; tart finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Every time I go to Denver I seek out the Crooked Stave line; glad to see they are gaining wider distribution as this is really good

My last Crooked Stave beer. Well. I guess it's time to move to Denver then.

As much as I love the funk, and this certainly has it, I also appreciate some level of balance. This doesn't have much of that. Punch in the mouth wild ale flavor. Vinegar tones. Minimal earthy edges. Not much more than a blast of funky yeast. Reminds me of a lot of Jolly Pumpkin.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was hazy medium amber with an average white foamy head that slowly receded, down to a thin film with a small collar and had good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuity grain malt, light floral hops and a musty horse blanket Brett yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple, a touch of white wine, a hint of oak and a mild spiciness.

The taste was tart right off and a tad acidic with a hint of citrus in the beginning, and then became quite yeasty with a mild funky fruity wine taste and a nice mild woody spiciness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow, with a tart and lightly spicy yeast taste left behind to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a step or two above light in body and mildly dry in texture with a soft to medium carbonation.

Overall this was and extremely tasty and rather sour Saison, with a balance of flavors that complemented each other better with every sip. What can I say; this brewer just puts out one exceptional brew after another...
