A: Pours a hazy pale straw color with a thin bone white head. Leaves some light tracks of lace.

S: Liking this a lot. Barnyard and brett right away with some hay, lemongrass, grapefruit zest, lemon rind and chalky flour.

T: We haven't been getting Crooked Stave for very long here in San Diego, but holy schnikes am I glad they're here. This tastes awesome. Opens with brett, lemongrass, hay and some oak. On the backend, there's some lemon like sourness, cucumber, salt and wet grass. A pretty dry finish with an almost dry white wine like sourness that sticks to the palate. I really enjoyed this one.

From 10/01/13 notes. Had this on tap at Ginger Man in NYC...liked it quite a bit.

a - Pours a clear, bright yellow color with two inches of frothy bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of brett, orange, citrus, oak, spice, yeast, light sour white wine, and floral hops. Nice nose, with a good amount of brett and light sour fruits. Big fan of it.

t - Tastes of sour chardonnay wine, sour light fruits, spice, yeast, bread, oak, musty notes, earthy notes, light citrus, and light brett. Little more earthy and less brett, but more sour wine and sour fruit than the nose. Think I like the nose a touch better, but very good.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty crisp and easy to drink.

o - Overall a very good beer from CS. Lots of brett in the nose and sour white wine and fruit as well. Would certainly have again, just wish their beers were a little bit cheaper.
