3.54/5  rDev -10.2%

Poured into a tulip glass from a 375ml bottle.

Pours a nice hazy and slight muddled dark golden color with some light brownish hues.

Aromas of citrus tartness and some funky wood notes. Notes of fresh baked bread and some earthy grain are present in the nose.

Flavor starts off with some mild tartness. Notes of orange rind and mild grapefruit juice. Mild woody funk is present. There is a very strong and dominant bready and earthy grain notes with some slight sweetness. Pretty straight forward. Low carbonation.

Overall straight forward Wit. Nothing great but still solid with some good mild tartness.

3.71/5  rDev -5.8%

Appearance - light yellow with very little head

Smell - tart, citrusy, with and off funk to it

Taste - lots of tartness and citrus to it.

Mouthfeel - not much carbonation and leaves a bitterness on your tongue

Overall - not their best, but it is still Crooked Stave

3.65/5  rDev -7.4%

On tap at The Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY.

Pours a very hazy orange, one inch head, and little dots of lacing on the glass.

Strong brett funk aromas on the nose, barnyard, lemon, orange.

The oranges are stronger in the taste, followed by chalky, slightly sour funk, grain, oak. The funk flavors are quite strong, a little bit too strong for me, tastes a bit like feet near the end as the beer warms up.

Medium bodied, low carbonation, a slow sipper due to the intense flavors.

Interesting beer, but a little too funky for me in the end.

4.19/5  rDev +6.3%

A: deep golden ale, hazy with streaming bubbles; finger or so of fluffy head. off-white, no lace

S: oranges and musk, wet blanket citrus, grass and flowery herbs

T: rich dank "horse blanket" brett, lightened with orange and citrus, flowers and wet grass

M: rich, fuzzy, medium body, tangy and slightly tart, crisp and lingering at the same time

O: another elegant seasonal offering from Crooked Stave, sure to please fans of the brewery and brett; reminiscent of a saison, but more dense and husky, fuller mouthfeel and denser flavors

4.06/5  rDev +3%

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with short white head that quickly died down, leaving a collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of funk from the brettanomyces are present in the nose.
T: Luke the smell, the taste starts out with funky flavors and some sourness and also has some notes of orange citrus from the Valencia oranges.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a bit of creaminess along with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The smell of this beer is really funky, but the orange citrus helps to lend some complexity to the taste and makes it more drinkable.
