3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Deep-ish orange body, highly opaque in the center with semi-translucent edges. Big, foamy white head piles up and leaves some delicate lacing behind. Aroma is different. Cat pee, funky yeast, zesty hops, lemongrass, apple-like sweetness, wet wood, mild barnyard Brett. Kind of a back-end vegetal, weedy, "green" thing going on, too. Unique. Taste is crisp and light. Tart undertone that quickly turns to bitterness. Grassy hops, Brett, dry leaves, pears, apricots, light must, apple skins... Pretty funky, too, with some cork and damp cellar notes in the finish. Decent, super funky & pretty hoppy beer. No more, no less.

375mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is full of barnyard notes, hay, Belgian yeast and a little farmhouse funk. Flavour brings out wonderful farmhouse notes of barnyard funk, citrus, mild floral hops and Belgian yeast. Finishes on notes of doughy crackery malt, citrus and Belgian yeast. Fairly dry palate, but also doughy giving it body. Highly drinkable stuff.

Really nice floral nose with some light honey. Taste is rather dry, and just lightly bitter, there’s a fair amount of apple juice, and hay and lemon, light herb. Solid.

Bottle from Justin at Beaumont Market. Colour...light golden straw with a frothy white head. Nose...lightly fruity and estery with some spices. Palate...delicately frothy with a delightful blend of yeasty fruity notes, candi sugar and sweet spices. This is quite dandy and if it truly becomes a year round offering, that will be good thing!
