Crooked Stave "Surette Reserva"
Crooked Stave - Denver, Colorado USA
Farmhouse Ale (ABV 6.2%) (IBU 15)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 17/20

The pour was a medium peachy orange with a tiny (less than 1/8 in) white fizzy head that disappeared a few seconds after the pour and had virtually no lacing to speak of.

The aroma was of a light toasted caramel malt and a funky horse blanket Brett yeast with notes of green apple, white wine, citrus (orange), mango and a slight cask presence.

The taste was moderately sweet and quite yeasty with a notes of green apple and tropical fruit throughout with the finish having a sour wine flavor with just a touch of oak cask at the end. The flavor lasted a decent time following the swallow with the fruity sour taste settling nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body with a dry watery texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall a uniquely tasty Farmhouse Ale with just the right amount of yeasty fruitiness, that along with the sour wine presence gives this brew a very appealing drinkability...
