orange with haze, 1 finger of white foam, medium sized bubbles race to the top
aroma is fruity, peach, candied orange, pineapple, very satsifying oak chatacter with vanille
tart and wineous, lime, dry, little bitterness
not too much body, refreshing prickly carbonation
Tart and oaky Saison; less tartness would make this really drinkable. still really good

I poured this into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy golden color with a quarter finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light lacing here and there in a messy sort of way. The smell had some funky light grassiness with a light sweet lemon and then a tart lemon. The flavor was pretty much exactly the same. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The finish has an insane amount of a long bitter tart lemon. Overall, decent saison, its definitely different than what a lot of what I’ve had.

Pours a hazy orange with sufficient foam to please my eye buds. Good lacing. I smell. I mean I smell tart apricot and lemon with carbonic acid tartness. Funky aromas follow. Apricot and lemon tartness, vinegar like sour notes and mild horseblanket. I think I taste some coriander but I’m not sure. Medium body with lightish carbonation. Another treat from Crooked Stave

Enjoyed at Crooked Stave in Denver, Co. POUR: On draft into a 10oz tulip. APPEARANCE: Golden amber in color. Hazy. Volatile brew and settles to almost nothing for head retention. Upon the swirl the head explodes to about an inch and is somewhat rocky. No real effervescence. AROMA: Huge nose. Can smell the pungent aromas from my barstool. The swirl reveals even more of the aroma profile. Very funky and somewhat barnyard in aroma. Can detect some woody oak notes per aging in oak foeders. TASTE: Sour Brett mixed with woody oak. Nice sour and funk with the mild earthy quality of the wood. First sip is sour and pucker inducing. It mellows after the initial sour punch. White grape like qualities also are apparent. AFTER TASTE: Finishes crisp and somewhat clean. Some acidic linger but nothing serious. Flavor profile reduces to nil and finishes dry. Some white grape notes last with the potential of pear like notes as well. REVIEW/RATING: Very Good/ 4.62 out of 5.

Spotted all throughout Colorado with their cute labels, out of the Crooked Stave beers available in bottles I was recommended Surette. Serving temperature of 46-54°F listed on the back label, but no bottling or best by date.

Left to chill in the fridge over a few days before being left to warm up a few degrees, uncapping the bottle gave a delayed eruption of foamy beer which is always a bit annoying. Clear amber color for most of the bottle, swirling and pouring in the rest along with the yeast leaves it a very hazy fresh-squeezed apple juice color with a small, diminishing head.
Not a very effervescent aroma. Lemon or orange peel and pulpy orange juice, wet barley, dusty oak, but all pretty faint and not incredibly enticing.
More vibrant in flavor, though not by much. A lemon lime sourness with old grains and oak ending with a dry, higher alcohol white wine-like finish with a little dull throb around the lips and roof of the mouth from acids and tannins.

It's good, it isn't very complex to me and doesn't quite fit the style either. It's something I would have after a long autumn day rather than during the spring or summer when I want a more bright, fresh, and refreshing drink.

Had this a few years ago when brought to Jupiter as part of Sour Sunday and at a bottle share at FiftyFifty. Pours mostly a cloudy golden and dark yellow with a fine 1/4" white head on the top. Aroma was really chill, I had no expectations like the Rolling Stones song going into this, but there just wasn't much poppin' off here, nothing bretty, sour or fruity. Some real marginalized grain and oak notes and that was about it.

The taste was a gritty, grainy unfiltered experience. Some lemon and cherry like notes push this beer in the sour direction. Seems to be lacking almost everything I go looking for in a saison. Wasn't sure what this beer was trying to do. I did like the seemingly maltier presence to it compared to other saisons, I would say this is more of a spring saison than a summer one. The sourness is there but this is a weird hodgepodge style beer. Enjoyable, but also forgetable.
