On tap at the Brewery on 4.5.13

A - Served a hazy darker orange-light brown with a few dark tan bubbles that cling to the glass.

S - Sweet fruitiness apple, whiskey barrel and some oakiness.

T - Sweetness from the apples is here and some subtle whiskey tones. Oaky and a nice tartness.

D - Good carbonation and a light to medium body.

O - I really like the staight version, but the apple part of the whiskey did not help. Whiskey good, apple sweet is bad. Still a solid beer, and I like the attempt, just a bit to sweet. (526 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives with the liquid a cloudy peach color; not much head and just a bit of spotting

Smell: Floral and apple tones with a bit of lemony funk

Taste: Herbal flavors, up front, with apple and lemon tones building; the funk grows a bit, after the swallow, but the finish is tart, with green apple and lemon flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Overall: Having had a number of outstanding Crooked Stave beers on my recent trip to Denver, I was a little disappointed in this one - not bad at all, just not to the same level as some of the others that were tapped for Colorado Beer Week (620 characters)
