Crooked Stave Petite Sour



   AROMA 1/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 6/20

adamjackson (757) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – OCT 7, 2012

Acquired in a trade. Enjoyed in a tulip at fridge temp (around 40F).A – Pours a murky and very cloudy yellow / orange. No head was produced at all.

S – The smell is pretty putrid. Smells like sulfur, rotten eggs doused in salt and vinegar. Stale rain water and hints of lemon citrus.

T – Taste is certainly better than the smell. Up front acetic lemon taste, salty and a hint of wheat. The middle is pineapple and the finish is a salty vinegar bomb. VERY sour.

M – Medium carbonation, light body.

O – If I wanted to smell and eat rotten pickled eggs, I would have gone in my fridge and grabbed some since I pickle my own eggs. This is basically that. It’s very disappointing and, as the first Crooked Stave beer Ive had, a let down.
