Pours a hazy light orangish color with fizzy light white head. Citrus, grapefruit, funk, tartness, and oak on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with grapefruit, tart and dry.

Smell is tart, lemon citrus, and oak. Taste is grapefruit, orange pith, a hint of apricot, and a nice amount of tartness. Another solid offering from Crooked Stave - a good citrus sour and a nice alternative to something more orange or lemon-forward.

A: Pours a murky golden grapefruit juice in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some slight almost pinkish highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that quickly reduces to an extremely thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of funkiness with moderate grapefruit juice and citrus/grapefruit pith.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit zest and citrus/grapefruit pith with a light to moderate amount of bitterness. That is followed by moderate flavors of grapefruit juice which contributes a light to moderate amount of sweetness and tartness. Light to moderate amounts of funkiness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: A very interesting combination of a radler and sour with a moderate amount of funkiness. Refreshing and enjoyable.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has some pinkish hues. It poured with minimal head, leaving only a thing ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of grapefruit and sourness are present in the nose.
T: Compared to the smell, favors of grapefruit are much more dominant in the taste and particularly stand out in the finish, lending some bitterness and sourness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The addition of grapefruit to this wild ale makes this somewhat more drinkable compared to other beers in the style. It wouldn't be a bad selection of you wanted a sour beer on a hot summer day.

This is kind of an odd one. Aroma is funk, yeast and fruit. Appearance had a very short lived head. Flavor's dominated by tart, has some discernable grapefruit, but also some medicine. Carbonation seems to be a bit light. This is ok to have once; don't want another.

Looks like straight up juice. Light carbonation. Awesome smell, want to surround myself in that smell. Sour for sure. Incredibly drinkable for people who like this kind of beer.
