Kind of light in the nose, but the flavor is fantastic. Lemon, orange sweetness. Some barnyard funk along with a pleasant tart sour. Definitely embodies the summer label. Good dry finish and very drinkable.

The beer comes in a gorgeous hazy golden color

The aroma has lemons, lactic sour, wheat, a bright funk of barnyard and hay.

The flavor tastes of tart lemon candy, almost like a lemonade. A bit of lactic sour and a creamy mouthfeel. The mandarin comes through as the beer almost tastes of fresh squeeze lemonade.

Drying n the back end.

Another great brew from Crooked Stave.

Note: 2014 Vintage, Batch 3

A: Pours cloudy medium yellowish/orangish in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and a hint of straw + lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy white head that slowly reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer made up of medium to large sized bubbles and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are moderate to strong aromas of horse blanket and citrus/lemon along with traditional brett flavors. Light to moderate aromas of grassy + spicy hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of grainy malts with a lighter flavor of slightly sour wheat. There is a moderate flavor of horse blanket and lemon citrus along with a tart brett flavor. Hints of grassy and spicy hops in the finish. Light amounts of oak are subtle but present.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Very enjoyable, refreshing, and easy to drink. Definitely a very well constructed brew with a great brett presence. Highly recommend.
