this one is back from the 2013 cellar reserve. pours a transparent amber sienna orange with light effervescent bubbles. nose shows some soft peach over a pungent sour. taste is a sharp tart..body is fairly thick but not syrupy. kinda showing its age. all in all a nice sour w a peach edge. definitely sour though.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at his tasting.

2013 vintage. Batch 4/30/13.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with grain, funk, acidic, peach whiskey, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit, acidic, peach whiskey, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid peach whiskey barrel aged qualities that are slightly better in the smell to me.

Serving type: bottle.

APPEARANCE: Hazy, but bright orange with a nice, quarter-inch, stark white head. It flairs up quickly then falls within 20 seconds or so, leaving some wisps of foam on the surface.

SMELL: I can smell this the second I pop the top, plenty of peach and tart apple lead the way and I haven’t even poured this yet. A little wet blanket thing is going on once it’s in the glass, but no vanilla or oak…just a little boozy.

TASTE: Again, the peach is impressively strong, but now there is a little vanilla from the whiskey barrels, actually a lot. This tastes like I imagine a slightly tart, peach creamsicle would. That said, it’s a little bready too.

MOUTHFEEL: This feels creamy and silky. The body is light to medium with just a touch of sparkle to it. Very juicy, but dryer than expected.

OVERALL: There is a ton of barrel on this beer and I like that. It still tastes like a Saison, but a very modified one. The peach and vanilla, however, are wonderful with it.

375ml bottle thanks to the person I trusteed for. Orange color, hazed, no head. Aroma was sour vinegar like aromas, no whiskey. Flavor was this odd clash if surette and then a whiskey flavor that was just weird. I can't believe how many beers Crooked Stave puts out that are sort of ho-him and yet locals act like they're the new Russian River. I would have been pretty bummed if I shelled out the $300 for their club because this is no better than the regular Surette, it might be worse.

Brief review - 5 out of 5 tasters agree this smells like canned tuna. Not a pleasant aroma.

Taste is improved from the smell - classic crooked stave flavors with a bit of booze (no tuna to be found).

On the whole, this is okay. Definitely not worth the price.
