Bottle from 2014, shared by a friend. Pours a hazy/cloudy bright yellow golden color with fizzy white head. Citrus, oak, stone fruits, funk, and a light tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied and crisp. Finishes with fruit, funk, and a lip puckering tartness that is very refreshing.

Lost review, dug up from notes, split with rudzud, 2014 vintage.

Light fizzy head if any, clear golden straw color.

Nose loaded with stone fruit, peach, nectarine, tangerine even, some nice Brett funk, little malt and acidity.

Taste more of the same, Brett funk, tart acidity, plenty of stone fruit, peach, nectarine, little citrus lemony funk note.

Mouth nice carb, touch flemmy.

Pours a deep gold. It reminds me a lot of a gueuze. There is a complex mixture of cheese funk, citrus, and barrel. If I have one criticism, it's that the beer is slightly thin, even as it warms. Overall, this is an awesome, awesome beer that I hope Crooked Stave is able to make again.

Shared with JLindros. 2014 release

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear golden hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin halo.

S - Aromas of some fruit galore, peaches, nectarines, stone pit, peach gummies, peach juice. The brett in this is incredible.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, lots of brett and yeast. The peach is fainter than the nose, but juicy and candy like. The stone fruit is delicious, very juicy peach flesh. Still, it pales to the nose.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, lightly refreshing.

O - Overall this beer was good, incredible stone fruit notes. Great funk. Incredibly delicious.
