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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy copper yellow color with a large white head. An earthy sweet yeasty nose with some light perfume. The flavor is grainy, citrus, some dry earthy malts. Interesting brew.

Bottle from PC Market of Choice in Ashland, OR. Pours hazy orange gold with a frothy white head. Smells of cooked light pitted fruit. Or Belgian yeast. Med + body. Flavor is earthy/yeast/spicy with some light pitted fruit esters. Arguably finishing not quite dry, but earthy.

mcberko (9223) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
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.

375, capped. Thanks j! Pours a cloudy medium gold with bright edges. Huge forward nose--floral, lightly tart (lemony), some white pepper, maybe some pink peppercorn. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Candied lemon, pink peppercorn, floral notes on the mid palate. Crisp refreshing finish.

Tmoney99 (11824) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate foral hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

alexsdad06 (6881) - Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small fizzy white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, lightly spicy, cheese, citrus and bread dough. The flavor is doughy bread, grassy, Belgian yeast, peppery spice and citrus. I thought this was just a bit all over the place.

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 courtesy of BrainLair. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with thin white head. Yeasty, bready aroma with notes of apple cider. Very dry and fruity. Citrus and grapefruit. Hoppy, bitter finish.

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!
