Bottle at home poured into my Hill Farmstead tulip. Appearance is hazy golden with a huge, long-lasting white head. Funky, dusty, citric acid, wheat, horse blanket, straw, green apple, and biscuit in the aroma. Taste is yeast, spice, lemon zest, citrusy hops, grass, white grapes, straw, and light acid with a medium tart finish. Mouthfeel is crisp with fizzy carbonation, ending very dry. Really nice beer; spicy, tart, bready, and fruity, almost gueuze-like. Well-done.

Bottle, 11C. Slight gusher. Hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of apples, damp hay, stone and tropical fruit, lemon, pepper. Creamy, slightly slippery mouthfeel. Sweet, fruity and floral with grapes and pineapple, mellow funk, gently tart. Doesn’t finish dry which is a slight shame. But refreshing and engaging.

I didn’t know much about this beer going in though I have had some Borgo brews before and this really impressed me. Subtle Belgian notes with spice flavors everywhere. Very floral and easy to sip. Would pair great with salads.

Atom (2066) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle pours a hazy dark orange with a large off-white head. Aroma has a lot of yeast, a slight funk, cherry, and spices. Taste is sweet Belgian spices into some brett funk, mellow tart fruits, and finishing with dry sour yogurt. Delicious, a great combo!

drowland (7773) - Georgia, USA - SEP 2, 2012
9/2/12. 375mL bottle from Grassroots. Really murky orange pour with a huge khaki head that sticks and laces plenty. Nicely funky aroma with barnyard, plenty of lemon tartness, and a touch of spiciness, though it seems a bit muted. Nicely tart entry, almost puckering, with a touch if funk, oak, and barely a touch of spiciness. It seems almost a touch watered down and could be a little more complex, but otherwise it’s darn tasty.

callmemickey (4148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Hazy golden-wheat body, moderate sized white head. Nose is full of grain, lemon, yeasty pepper, mild funk and hay. Flavor is similar with a shart lemon-citric sourness and a mellow hay filled funk. Medium bodied, moderate acidity, mellow carbonation.

Rating this from my girlfriend’s bathroom. Cloudy, golden orange color with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma has loads of yeast, cardamom, slight brett. Fuck this tastes good. Coconut, pineapple, wood. Boom, roasted. Damn good. What style is this?

Sour, dry, sweet, and fizzy-- reminiscent of a champagne and sour. Nice flavor combination of barrel, green grape, agave, grapefruit zest, and honey. Very nice!
