375ml bottle.

Pours hazy gold with a copper hue and an inch-plus head of white. Fat, short strands of lacing and a partial skim coat for the duration. Grapefruit, pineapple, and crushed aspirin in the nose. Light bodied with a crisp, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet tarts on the palate. Bracingly sour and fruity with plenty of funky brett. Finishes with a lingering fruity tartness.

Sour, fruity, and dry. Certainly not a traditional Saison.

Well, this is an interesting beer. There was a bit of head when poured. Golden colored. It's got a fruity smell to the nose. The taste light, but flavorful. This isn't a style I've had much experience with, but is a delicious beer.

Pours hazy, golden brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Smell is hay and brett. Taste is amazing. Hay and brett dominate the first taste, but there is a definite white wine characteristic to this. Oak and lemon finish this beer. Complex for style. Great summer sipper. This is a beer I could throw back all day.

Poured the first half of the bottle without any yeast, a golden yellow with brilliant clarity and a nice white head. Once I dumped the yeast in, the color became more golden-Amber with no clarity, nice haziness. Smell and flavors are lemon, hay, oak barrels, white wine grapes, some honey, pear, tart green apple, and a bit of barnyard funk on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium low carbonation. Overall I thought he flavors grew in yeasty funkiness once I added the yeast in, so I'd recommend drinking it that way.

35cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Smells like brett, unripe grapes, grapefruit, barnyard funk. Bitter and crisp, refreshing, with notes of apple cider, vinegar, unripe grapes and a very small amount of funk in the background.

Autumn 2014 batch

L - Golden with no clarity, slight bubbles in the brew, 1/2 a finger of head that quickly dissipates

S - Funky Saison yeast, sour notes, lemon, tart

T - Sour, tart, lemon, lime. A damn tasty oak aged ale Saison

F - Medium body and carbonation

O - Love the tart after taste. This brew delivers from the beginning to the end and then beyond.

T: pleasant funk and citrus with pepper a good amount of sourness here as well
M: dry but not sharp
O: a solid beer than leans more in the farmhouse ale side of the saison camp, tart and funky and quite enjoyable

2014 Batch 16. Pours a nice gold with small white head - reminiscent of a macro lager. Nose is on point, with acidic funk dominating. Tastes pretty rocking too - tart with wood taking center stage, no real citrusy hops coming through, finishes with a Band-Aid flavor but in an oddly good way. One of the most complex beers I've had the pleasure to try. Feel is solid, with nice carbonation after 1+ years. Overall, one of the most interesting beers I've tasted - I understand Crooked Stave's acclaim and look forward to trying more.
