3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a very hazy, pale gold with a huge, frothy, white head. Big, bitter orange aromas, with a herbal note and some minerals. The flavor is very bitter, with a significant sourness. Light to medium body, very sticky, and weakly effervescent. Overall, this is a flavorful and delicious IPA, with a light body and good spicy flavor. Unfortunately, this is sticky mess, with the hops overpowering the wine and wit notes.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smell of coriander, citrus and other fruit. Pale amber colour, extreme white head. Cloudy. The first sip is like a slap in the face. Very bitter, enhanced by stingingly sharp carbon, which is extremely plentiful at that. Aroma of coriander, orange peel, hops, spices. Also spicy hot. Kind of a jack-in-the-box witbier.. or IPA. Or witbier.. Crazy stuff but crazy good, too.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Muddy, pale brown color. Large but weak head. Fruity aroma; pineapple, pine and lots of orange juice. Really bitter flavor of citrus, pine, resin, goose berries and nettles. A flavorful beer that might get a little bit too much in the long run.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
First Alaska rate! Pours cloudy yellow with a massive light fluffy head that explodes up the glass. Aroma is big lemon peel, oak, funky brett, some light spices and hints of earthy hops. More of a farmhouse ale than an IPA on the nose. Light bodied with lots of carbonation (maybe too much?). Flavor is dusty bitter up front, followed by a bit of pine hop, and then finishes with some sweet lemon and pineapple. Sour kumquattyness. Very, very dry to the point that I need a drink of water afterward. The up front bitter is unpleasant and seems a bit off for my liking. I could definitely see this as a summer beer, and it drinks extremely light for 7.5%. But overall I am much less impressed with this than others. The appearance and huge carbonation hurt the final rating, but it seems to have hit what they were going for.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle split wth Tomaz @ home.
Batch#2, bottled April 2012. Dès ouverture, liège qui commence à pousser, impressionnant.
Couleur paille/foin, léger trouble sur la fin, col épais blanc laissant qcq marques sporadiques sur le verre.
Arôme offre un beau bouquet houblonné, frais alternant des notes d’agrumes. Note en rétro-nasal de poivre mais aussi de ce fruité de kumqat. Galaxy rappelle ici des notes douces de fruits de la passion avec l’ajout du mûrissage en chêne.
Palais est herbacé, amertume citronnée assez léger et complété par le brett qui donne une pointe fin d’aigreur. La Chardonnay est subtile tirant sur le vin blanc. Beau mélange entre le côté vin, fruité tropical et amertume et l’épice; coriandre. Malgré le prix, une belle expérience.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a hazy straw color with a medium thick and fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Sheets of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, brett and yeast. Medium body and mildly funky with flavors of earthy yeast, citrusy hops and oak. Slight malt in the background. The finish is mildly tart with a funky fruit and hops aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caged and corked 750mL bottle pours with a pale yet bright gold body with faint haze supporting a tall densely cobwebed white head of foam. The aroma offers up lime, tangerine, grapefruit and a sour lime sort of wild yeastiness. The taste has a very effervescent quality and it is so much so it is tough to sink you teeth into the experience. I’m getting fruity and tart grapefruit notes that are sliding into lime like citrus and some citrusy tartness. Pretty nice but the huge carbonation takes detracts from the experience.

Thanks kantrauch! Hazy straw yellow with white head. Aroma of wheat citrus lemon and Brett. Very carbonated and effervescent. Taste dry wheat and bitter hops. Good but the effervescence does take away from the taste.
