APPEARANCE: Hazy, but bright orange with a nice, quarter-inch, stark white head. It flairs up quickly then falls within 20 seconds or so, leaving some wisps of foam on the surface.

SMELL: I can smell this the second I pop the top, plenty of peach and tart apple lead the way and I haven’t even poured this yet. A little wet blanket thing is going on once it’s in the glass, but no vanilla or oak…just a little boozy.

TASTE: Again, the peach is impressively strong, but now there is a little vanilla from the whiskey barrels, actually a lot. This tastes like I imagine a slightly tart, peach creamsicle would. That said, it’s a little bready too.

MOUTHFEEL: This feels creamy and silky. The body is light to medium with just a touch of sparkle to it. Very juicy, but dryer than expected.

OVERALL: There is a ton of barrel on this beer and I like that. It still tastes like a Saison, but a very modified one. The peach and vanilla, however, are wonderful with it.

375ml bottle thanks to the person I trusteed for. Orange color, hazed, no head. Aroma was sour vinegar like aromas, no whiskey. Flavor was this odd clash if surette and then a whiskey flavor that was just weird. I can't believe how many beers Crooked Stave puts out that are sort of ho-him and yet locals act like they're the new Russian River. I would have been pretty bummed if I shelled out the $300 for their club because this is no better than the regular Surette, it might be worse.

Brief review - 5 out of 5 tasters agree this smells like canned tuna. Not a pleasant aroma.

Taste is improved from the smell - classic crooked stave flavors with a bit of booze (no tuna to be found).

On the whole, this is okay. Definitely not worth the price.
