In love with this beer. Poured a little cloudy with tons of fluffy sticky white head. Brett and pepper on the nose. Gloriously dry pretty body with saison character and some oak. A stellar beer. I wish I could access this beer more readily.

Look: Mostly clear straw. Not much head or lacing to speak of.
smell: Earthy, citrusy funk. Nice i mean.
taste: much like the nose. Quite mellow. Kind of like a Sprite with funk and soul :) half kidding, it's much better than that.
overall: Quite enjoyable, my first Corooked Stave.

I appreciate my brother tenderbranson69 sharing this with me, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is deeply hazed golden with frothy white head, lace sticks with fine bead. The smell is tropical with slight pineapple and mild orange aroma very lactic in a lemony and fruity way. The feel has tangy citrus and sour texture of yeast/bacteria with moderately high carbonation with low sweetness and dry finish.

The taste is very lemonywith pineapple sour and slight astringent taste with bretty funk and light medicinal aspect mid palate with grapefruit in the taste which is lightly acidic. The intensity of sourness is lingering after the finish. This is interesting and drinkable for the style -a very tasty session strength saison
