Ferme de La Ville or “City Farm 15” is brewed with Belgian Pilsner, malted wheat, and locally gathered honey. French Farmhouse yeast brings aromas of spice and earth. The body is light with complex flavors and a dry refreshing finish. 6.75%alc/vol 25 IBU’s

tap at the brewpub, Aug. 2013 - Pours gold with minimal head. The aroma is full of funky brett. The flavor is big on the wild yeast with some earthy, malty sweetness. Quite good.

Scopey (6238) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Aaron. It pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is soft, earthy, brett, underlying sweetness, barnyard, sherbet, light toast and spice. The taste is sherbet, hay, toast, crisp bitterness, lemon, grapefruit, spice and subtle tartness with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Well-rounded and very drinkable stuff. Tasty.

Bottle cheers to Aaron. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium, fluffy white head leaving great lacing. Nose is chock full of stone fruits - peach, plum, apricot, some moderate hay and grass. Epitomizes summer. Taste is grassy and floral hops with big apricot and mango running through the mid palate. Big tropical features, sherbert and citric zest. Very juicy. Summer, summer, summer. Very good stuff!

Bottle tasting at Craft Clerkenwell.Thanks to Aaron. Hazy gold beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy and a little crisp. Light floralness with a very mild sour tang. Whisper of lemony citrus. Little dried fruits. Finishes light. Pleasant enough!

hopscotch (8845) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a minimal, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is woody, acidic and lightly funky. Light-bodied and astringent with stinging carbonation. The flavor is slightly tart and lemony, followed by a tangy, raspy, bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

harrymel (1478) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
2012 vintage It’s a clear gold with no evidence of carbonation (odd based on the oral experience). Smells of classic belgian yeast, some grain, some bit of metal, rice and flowers (I’m not a botanist). Flavor is yeast, sweet grains, a touch of corn, and a slight and subtle tartness on the finish. The mouthfeel is thin with exceptionally hi carb and a dry finish. As it warms, this beer is much better. Initially, it’s a standard, low excitement carb and as it warms, it becomes yummy.

changeup45 (1715) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Corked & caged bottle. An amber-golden color pours out with a thick initial khaki head that fades away quickly. Minimal spotty lacing. The aroma shows a mix of grapes, peach, dust, cheese, funk, and straw. There’s a crisp tartness to the flavors, with tropical fruity notes, wild flowers, weeds, and musty funk. Odd at times but delicate and velvety with a soft malt character. Prickly and slightly dry on the back end. I keep thinking I am picking up some raw honey flavor too but I don’t think so. I think it just contributes to some initial sweetness. This is a good beer but maybe not as amazing as I thought it might be.
