mathieuc (2484) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2015
Single 12oz bought at Bier Cellar, no idea about freshness (or lack of). Pours a clear pale golden with a medium-high white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose has a slight cooked vegetables character I’m not entirely fond of with some fruits and black pepper. Taste is pretty dry and peppery and light on funk. Fruits. Body is light and carbonation moderately high. Pretty refreshing. Nothing to write home about.

kokkenrolv (179) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle @Spuyten Duyvil. Aroma is funk, barnyard, cabbage, spice, herbs. Golden yellow, cloudy, small white head. Light sweetness, minimal bitterness, slightly sour, taste is herbal, hay, dress, small sour note. Medium body, tart, dry, medium long aftertaste, hints of umami. Nice and funky, rich.

beernbourbon (1426) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle. Pour is hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is extremely funky with notes of gym sock and arm pit - in the best way possible. Slight notes of hay and grass as well. Flavor is pleasingly tart up from which is then backed with a lightly funky note. There is a touch of wood or musk with a lightly bitter flavor that I don’t love. That flavor lingers for a bit. There is so much about this that I like, but just a lingering off flavor in the finish that I can’t get past.

Alexanderdahl (111) - DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Sweet and fresh citrussy notes on the nose.Crisp pears and apples. Pours hazy gold with a light white film. Really sharp, crisp and fresh sourness. Lots of hay and citrus with subtle hints of bitterness. Dries out your mouth, yet waters it! Big lump of yeast in the bottle though... NICE!
