Crooked Stave Batch 60
By: Katie Schroepfer
Denver brewery Crooked Stave has been getting a lot of attention lately for their unique sour beers. The head brewer is a master at sours, making them all very exceptional and great tasting. For some people a sour beer is the worst idea ever, and for others all they want is a delicious sour beer that leaves them wanting more. Batch 60 is one of the best sours that I have ever had; it’s too bad it is a limited release brew.
First Impression: The label is great. It has a good description of the beer on it and it flows well with what Crooked Stave is all about. Everything about the beer is appealing.
Pour: The head is thin and white, disappearing quickly. The beer has an orange color to it, providing a lemon and flowery scent.
Taste: This is a fruity sour beer with a lingering, tart-flavor. A bit of a citrus taste is also involved, giving you a good variety of tastes to make this an all-around excellent beer. Batch 60 has an impressive sour flavor to it, giving its drinker plenty of sour for one sitting.
Overall, I was very satisfied with this sour beer. Crooked Stave has never let me down and it has always been great to try their new sours.
