Offering a sense of comfort and approachable demeanor, the Petite Sour collection of sour ale by Crooked Stave gets out of the fruit friendly additions and into an herbal, floral, winey taste for complexity, variety and charm.

Bright, tangy and earthy, the nose is rife with wine. Caught between red and white varieties, this rosé version shares the robustness of red but the daintiness of white vinous fruit and spice as the nose becomes alive with cider, pepper, tainted cork and damp hay. Shy on sweetness, its grape upstart continues what it's bright blush and rosé hues promise.

As the ale unfolds, its taste is less malt reliant and more confident with sourness. Cider, dry rosé, lime, lemon and gooseberry carry a piquant sour taste across a bed of dry wheat and hay, an herbal hop complement and a yeast spice of weathered oak, burlap and horse blanket in retro olfactory fashion.

Simple, pure and dry, the ale's cider and wine influences keep the session crisp, clean and highly thirst quenching. Delicate with both a floral and rustic bouquet, the finish is mildly carbonated for zip of sparkling wine and a highlight of the beer's peppery taste that lingers in a short wheaten afterglow.

I love sours but this one borders on a big sour for even me. I grew up liking crab apples and that tart taste. This was, for my tastes, to tart.

375ml capped bottle into a Surly teku. Shared by schen9303.

Super funky. Hints of hay, vinegar, oak, cobwebs and horse blanket. Almost lambic-like. Beer opens tart. Notes of grape, oak, hay and cobwebs. Vinous with a creamy tartness... though a little watery. Vinegar and more grape juice at the finish. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and coarse in the mouth and goes down soft and moderately dry.

Decent but watery.

Super solid low abv wild ale offering. Would definitely buy again if a little cheaper but at $8 I can't justify it.
