Wow. I must have a bad bottle. The aroma is band aid and feet. The flavor is more band aid and sweaty feet. This one went down the drain. It must have been infected. No hops just crape.

sulawang (838) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Visual: Twisty wire cap and composite cork. Pours light straw yellow with huge slowly dissipating creamy bubbly head, torrents of fast activity, small bits of sediment. Nose: kumquat banana wheat malt, traces of funk, quite bright. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: fizzy-bubbly wholeness, Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, sharp sour-tangy acidity, (MAIN) background funk, juicy kumquat citrus, banana wheat malt -> dry hoppy bitter Finish: light oak, coriander, dry wheat, lingering bitter hops, kumquat exhale, background peppercorn spice, burpy. Summary: Very refreshing with a boatload of flavours to discover all the while backed up by a very bubbly mouthfeel. Although only medium-bodied, it delivers in smooth transitions and enticing complexity.

That wonderful characteristic Galaxy nose. Tropical and citrus fruit. Very hazy and pale. Appearance is not this companies strong suit. Palate is brilliant. Soft sweet then syrupy with tingly carbonation and pepper finish. Very subtle. Real good.

650 mL bottle. Banana Popsicle yellow with a big, rocky white head. As close to Orval as I’ve ever tried. Yeah. Great hopping.

The_Osprey (4893) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Keg at CPK. Quite a vibrant yellow, hazy, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is wheaty, lemon. Body is light, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is earthy, wheat, leaves, jelly babies with extra dusted sugar, chalky, dry papery finish. Dry, dirty and earthy. Not as clean as expected, but decent.

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Keg at CPK - London. Pours hazy yellow with a creamy white head. The nose has some creamy pale malts, tangerine, straw, grapefruit. Light sweet flavor with lots of flinty minerals, rindy citrus, cereal grains. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Light funky character on the finish, some white grape, pale wood, minerals, grassy bitterness, lemon rind. Novel.

AdiBeer (2592) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Aroma: light yeast, barnyard, light citrus. Appearance: hazy, light yellow, small, creamy, white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: bitters continue, brett, farmhouse, getting quite intensely bitter, light sours coming up, light exotic fruits kicking in very late. Overall: nice IPA, interesting play on brett flavours. Pint at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

Batch #8, April ?15. Big Bottle from Total Wine to glass, light golden slightly cloudy. Humongous light foamy head. Delicate Brett/ lemon /faint leather aroma. Lightish grain/ funk/ mild hops . Intensely dry. This is the true champagne of beers. Pairs great with seafood.

puboflyons (2786) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2015
From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. It is a year old so that will probably taint my review. Hazy, yellow pour with a modest white fizzy head that fades. The aroma is Brett and spice. The body is light and refreshing. I pick up a good spice character in the taste with that Brett character all over it. Ends dry.
