look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a duvel tulip.
Pours nice, some head that retreats to a ring rather quickly. Nice straw color, lacking that witbier haze though, pretty clear actually.

Smells like citrus, some wheat, and brett. The brett seems less funky and more fruity. Very appealing, invites you in for a sip.

Nice citrus tastes, getting the tangelo, works well with the brett, and the wheat comes in at the end, letting you know this is still a witbier regardless of the brett and tangelo. Very well done, I was unsure how this was going to taste coming into this, and I find it hard to put my glass down.

Medium mouthfeel, not overly carbonated, just enough to clean off the palate and keep this beer fresh and lively as I drink it.

Overall, this is another solid Crooked Stave offering. Once again they have taken a classic style, added some imagination, and made a beer that reaches back towards its stylistiic roots while changing things up. Other than the looks, you still know, under the citrus and brett, this is still a very nice witbier. Kudos to Crooked Stave once again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Served from a 375ml bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Appearance- Hazy gold with bubbly off white head. Nice lacing.

Smell- Heavy brett, tart lemon, earthy funk, light citrusy orange. Smells like a gueze. Phenomenal smelling brett beer.

Taste- Brett funk, lemon, light tangerine (tangelo?), herbaceous, again very gueze-like. No real hint of it being a witbier.

Mouthfeel- Super drinkable. Crisp, funky, lightly tart, dry as hell. I'd drink this all day.

Overall- Excellent beer. I now love Crooked Stave.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: hazy dark gold, minimal head

S: slightly tart sweet orange, hint of wheat

T: very tart orange, much more tartness than I expected from an all brett beer (probably from the citrus fruit) lots of lemon and orange on the finish.

M: perfect carbination, just effervescent enought.

O: very tasty, citrus dominated and more sour than I expected.
