Pours a medium golden, very clear, light fizzy white head. Aroma showcases earthy notes, some light lactic acidity, sweet blueberry...very nice. A medium+ twang of acidity and funk, gradually increases until the end of the sip. Interesting sourness, some astringent character around the edges. Quite a delicious aroma and a good taste, very nice overall.

Bottle.

Pours hazy straw colored with a quickly dissipating head of white. A placid surface for the duration with zero lacing.

Aromatics lead off with tart fruit and wine-like overtones. Grapeskins, stonefruit, and a hint of grapefruit.

Light bodied with mild carbonation.

Sour fruit starts the palate with a tannic dryness quickly following. Mild fruity aspirin follows through.

Finishes with lingering soured fruit.

Tasty beer. The hops are gone and it's gone beyond a "Brett" beer. Plenty sour with complex fruit and wine-like character. The low carbonation is disappointing though.

Poured into a wine glass.

Aroma: Acid and funk. Brett comes through very well and noticeable. Brett aroma is leather and wood. The aroma shouts that this is tart and dry. My mouth is watering.

Appearance: Golden with a slight haze. Head is composed of very fine bubbles - spritzy, which immediately fades to nothing. Beer appears flat within seconds.

Flavor: an initial burst of sour, which tapers nicely to the funk. No off flavors. Dry. The beer leaves a lingering tartness, causing a very slight ongoing puckering sensation. This beer is dry-hopped with Centennial hops, but no hop flavor or aroma exists. The kumquats contribute a very subtle citrus-oil flavor and spiciness.

Mouthfeel: heavier than anticipated; especially so being a sour beer.

Overall: another excellent beer for Crooked Stave. The only room for improvement on this beer is the mouthfeel being lightened. Crooked Stave's sours are consistently on par with some of the best sour breweries' around.

Pours a hazy peach color. Orange and peach notes give the beer a great citrus flavor. Slightly tart.
