Crooked Stave Surette

| No Comments

I bet you thought I was joking when I said that every day is saison day here at Kaedrin. No? Well, whatever, here's another oak aged, Brett fermented 5 grain badass from Crooked Stave.

Crooked Stave Surette

Crooked Stave Surette - Pours a deep golden orange color with a finger of fluffy white head that doesn't quit. Smells of pure funk, earthy and musty with a hint of lemon twang on the end. Taste follows the nose, musty earth up front, a really nice oak character emerging in the middle and lasting through the finish, which also features a tart lemon kick. Mouthfeel is well carbonated, crisp and refreshing, with some lactic acidity hitting in the finish. Overall, it's a really solid Brett focused farmhouse ale. B+

Beer Nerd Details: 6.2% ABV bottled (375 ml capped). Drank out of a tulip glass on 11/9/13. Vintage: 2013. Batch 5.

I'm going to need to find a regular hookup for these guys, maybe even get ahold of some of their more adventurous stuff. In the meantime, I'll just have to deal with these other 10 world class saisons I've got in my cellar. Woe is me.
