Bottle. This is seriously good! two great styles mashed into one so seamlessly! I’ve tried both the nogne version and the bridge rd version, I’d say nogne by a head, but run the race again tomorrow and the result might be different.

DutchDrebus (3980) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle @ benzai. Hazy/murky yellow colour with a medium to large sized white head. Smells fresh, slightly sourish, malts, herbs and spices. Reminds me of Oersoep brewery. Tastes slightly sour, malts, brett, white ipa, some herbs. Way too much carbo, medium body.

Imaril (15) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2014
This beer is dominated by the yeast and hops. The malt makes it’s presence felt in the aroma as you tip the glass towards you, grainy and fresh smelling, but as soon as it hits the palate it’s sour grapefruit or green grapes. But the sourness also moves very quickly to long lasting resinous hop bitterness under the influence of the galaxy and Stella hops. Pours a slightly cloudy tan colour with thick foamy head. Great beer.

KornDogg (529) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Yeast, grape and hop aroma. Hazy golden body with tall & frothy lasting head. Flavor begins very crisp and dry with notes of spice,yeast and hops. Slight fruit finish followed by a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Very unique and better than what I imagined it would be.

What a genius idea this is... LOADS of frothy head and body from the Belgian yeasts. Supported by citrusy, hoppy, grassy, IPA bitterness. Smells amazing. Tastes even better.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Bottle. Murky orange. Aroma is tropical fruity, citrus, yeasty. Lots of citrus and tart yeast flavours. Incredibly refreshing. More of a tart IPA.
