3.69/5 rDev -7.8%
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.

3.76/5 rDev -6%
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
