Crooked Stave's Petite Sour. This beer is very different than the Pure Guava Petite Sour that many are familiar with. Gone are the cheesy Brett notes that some liked and others disliked. Instead we have a beer that is very similar to a Berliner Weisse, with a light tartness from Lactobacillus. The beer goes beyond Berlin though, using Brettanomyces and aged in oak. The beer sits at 4.5% and is extremely easy drinking. Chad calls it a Table Beer, which seems to reference Table Wine. From my understanding this would perhaps mean that the beer has no specific geographic location but perhaps a wider array of geographic influences, including Berlin, Belgium, and Fort Collins. Also Table Beer makes me think of a beer that I can sit with, drink, and eat while hanging out with friends. 4.5% does put it into the top tier of that Session category (depending on who you talk to).
