91pointsCrane Farmhouse IPA with Brett

A bottle-conditioned Belgian-style ale with Brett, this reads like a hoppy saison, though it's not overly so or a hop bomb by any means. A light yellow-gold color, it pours with a small frothy head that falls fast. The nose is bright, floral and earthy, with a lively hop-flower aroma that's supported by scents of white pepper, green plantain, wild yeast, lemon verbena and fresh-cut grass. The fresh hop character mingles seamlessly with the crisp malt, mild funk and acidic twang of the style and wild yeast. Medium in body with crisp carbonation, it finishes in a flourish of yeasty spice and earthy, just barely barnyardy funk. Lauren Buzzeo
