look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pour is a pale yellow with a white head. Nose is pronounced brett, egg and cob webb, light lemon. Taste has some tartness to it, lighter body with a strong carbonation and fairly dry finish. Brett isn't quite as pronounced, sweeter. Juicy lemon, dusty brett through the finish.

2013 batch 4
Enjoyed from a 2012 cellar reserve oversized wine glass

Brew pours a lush murky tangerine orange with a thin cap of frothy head that dissolved quic leaving spotty lace. Nose is crisp sweet tart wheat. Oranges and tropical fruitiness tickle over the top. Real nice. Not as sweet in the taste as the Brett is more dominant here making the beer more sour than wheat. Still has a soft orangey flavor over wheat. Very drinkable in the summer...wish I tried it a bit fresher in the fall. Another fine brew from crooked stave.

2013 vintage. Batch 4.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, citrus fruit, Brett, butter, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, citrus fruit, wood, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a somewhat mellow citrus presence that is balanced by the wood aspects.

2013/Batch 4. 375ml bottle in wine glass. Cloudy golden color with good lacing. Smells tart with a sweet candy orange (jolly rancher?) and bready aroma. Taste is bready, mildly sour with a bit of funk followed by a bright orange zing finishing with a flat bitter and bready aftertaste. Disappointing. I hope this is just a bad bottle because everything else I have had from Crooked Stave has been outstanding. That includes the St. Bretta Winter which I just picked up from the brewery.
