Got this from my cellar reserve trustee, but apparently crooked stave is now distributed in NY. Enjoyed from a crooked stave snifter. Brew pours a soft honey yellow with a thin fizzy head that was gone fast. Deep and rich in color. Smell is a bright floral vanilla with oaky highlights. The brett seems to add a crispness as opposed to a funk. Oaky brett tartness flavor. Crooked stave had really achieved a signature flavor to their beers that makes them taste nice. This is no exception, but this is the witbir take on it. You can pick out the tartness of the wit and some hints if orange rind. Solid summer beer. Glad i gave a few of these coming my way to enjoy in these crisp summer days.

A: A pale golden beer with a light haze. The rocky white head is long lasting.
S: a medium citrus and pepper aroma with the citrus being more real fruit than yeast derived in nature. There is some citrus zest a light wheat sweetness. A low barnyard aroma.
T: A dry, beer with a medium bitterness. There is a light hops bitterness with a medium citrus zest bitterness and a moderate spice. The balance is moderately bitter with a dry finish. The aftertaste is of a city's peel bitterness. There is a moderate oak character to the beer.
M: A medium light bodied beer with a strong level of carbonation.
O: I really like this citrusy, dry beer with a moderate Brett funk and a medium bitterness. There are lots of classic light fruit and spice with a moderate barrel character.

Bottle shared by my buddy Mitch in colo. Allowed to warm up for about 25-30 mins.
Pours hazed lighter tangarine. looser off white head. Stays at the 1/3 inch level for a good long spell. Leaves respectable strands of fine lacing.
Lemon, grass. tea and some barnyard funk in the nose.
Super flavorful wit/saison/what ever you want to call this offering.
Large brett character, heavy lemon, quite tart/puchering w/ a continued biting sour note
The final yeasty pour adds a nutty, grapefruity, funky yeast experience that is not to be missed
No doubt this is serious beer, funky cheese?
One of the bunch of first CS beer I've tried and they have not disapointed.

Appearance - straw yellow that is very light with a thin bubbly head
Smell - very tart and citrusy. not as tart as other CS beers
Taste - sweet up front then a great tart twist at the end
Mouthfeel - well carbonated and leaves a nice dry flavor on your tonuge
Overall - 2nd favorite St. Bretta and quick simple fun beer to enjoy
