3.38/5 rDev -17.2%
Pours a cloudy lemon yellow into my Bruery tulip. A thin fluffy white head disappears quickly and leaves no lacing anywhere on the glass. Not a bubble of carbonation. This beer lies completely flat and still.
Lemon juice, orange peel, touches of black pepper and toasted oak. Not overly funky but the bit of horse blanket and barnyard blend nicely with the tart lemon/citrus notes. Again, nothing to dynamic, but pleasing.
Tart fresh squeezed lemon juice, little notes of peppercorns, dried orange peel, yeasty barnyard funk, and bits of caramel toasted oak. Not a ton of depth, but not a one note solo either.
Very tart and lemony! Not a bit of spakle on the tongue. Just kind of flat and uninspired.
I had really high hopes for this, but it was kind of a let down. Not as much funk as I'd hoped for, no sparkle whatsoever, and fairly bland for a bottle that cost $8.99. This was o.k. but nothing I'll be seeking out again.

3/5 rDev -26.5%
Appearance - Very light straw yellow. head leaves quickly as well
Smell - Subtle sweetness with very little tart. Lots of pineapple
Taste - tart acidity and fruit that is quickly followed by some type of chemical
Mouth - that chemical taste does not leave
Overall - I have had CS multiple times and I finally found a chemical bomb. just horrible. I had it on tap and it was amazing, but this bottle did not age well. I will go back to Crooked Stave soon though
