look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A sweet aroma with some yeast and malt present as well.

T: Tasted of Belgian yeast, spices (pepper), citrus (lemon), and malt in the finish. A very well balanced flavor that's light, sweet and enjoyable.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: While this is only the third Crooked Stave beer I've had, they've shown themselves to be more than capable of making a great brew. This one is well made and flavorful.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a frothy white head. The head and what little lacing there was faded quickly.

S: Strong citrus, lemon, sour aromas.

T: Slightly sour with strong lemon citrus flavors. There is a cidery apple flavory too that is not disagreeable. There is a very slight bit of spicy pepperiness to the finish. As I got to the bottom of the bottle it actually got cloudier and tastier I think. I should have poured the whole bottle at once.

M: Very light bodied and fairly well carbonated.

O: This would be a good thirst quenching beer for a hot summer's day. Lacks a bit in the complexity department to rate higher and perhaps justify the price. Still, a quality sour.
