Crooked Stave "St. Bretta" (Spring)
Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project - Denver, Colorado USA
Witbier (ABV 5.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 3.75/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that slowly receded, down to a thin film and a small collar with good runny lacing.

The aroma was slightly mild of a straw malt and a musty Brett yeast with notes of citrus (orange and lemon), coriander and a light tartness.

The taste was mildly sweet with a hint of orange at first, but quickly became extremely yeasty and somewhat tart with a spicy citrusy lemon finish. The flavor hung on for a good long time following the swallow, with a tart citrusy taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just below the halfway point between light and medium in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a superb Witbier! Very satisfyingly, refreshing, tasty and easy to drink, I have to say this brewer never seems to disappoint...
