3.71/5 rDev -5.6%
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

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 +6.6%
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 +3.3%
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.
