Crooked Stave "Wild Wild Brett Orange" (W.W.B.O.)
Crooked Stave - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
American Wild Ale (ABV 6%) (IBU 17)

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

Rating: 3.9/5.0

Aroma: 8/1
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a murky medium orange with a large white pillowy head that lasted throughout and had excellent sheeting of lacing that totally coated the glass.

The aroma was all about the citrus (tangerine and orange peel) with a big funky Brett yeast, a mild grain malt and a slight sourness.

The taste was about the same as the aroma, lots of tangerine and a sweet tartness early on with the finish being about the same with a slight orange peel bitterness and a sweet sour ending. The flavor lasted a really long time proceeding the swallow and again was all about the tart citrus flavor.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a almost champagne like carbonation.

Overall and exquisite tasting brew that had the sweet and the sour blending perfectly together along with a bold citrus presence and a ticklish carbonation, YUM...
