Yola is a contradiction. Sweet yet strong. Excitingly intimidating yet approachable. Unrefined, but instantly adaptable to the most sophisticated palates. Please appreciate this artisan ale dedicated to our motorcycle riding caregiver as much as we appreciate her work and her company. Unfiltered & bottle conditioned. Enjoy with or without sediment at 45 degrees.

Bottle thanks to Randomgarbage on RBWG bus. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head. The aroma is yeast and tart fruit. Thin mouth with hairspray and paint thinner. Wtf

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle share in Asheville. Extremely soupy, so ugly in the glass. Nose of cheap nail varnish. Weird rotting fruit esters. Bottled fart. The taste is similarly nasty. Old mandarins, rotting vegetables. Bizarre chemical notes. Very strange indeed. Not good.

phaleslu (9425) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
750 ml bottle from John’s Grocery- thanks, Andy! Batch 7, bottle 29, as if it matters. Pours a hazy dully amber-gold with a small off-white head. Notes of cardboard, honey, vegetables, earth, wood, lemon, and sourdough. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, vegetal mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Like all of their beers, this one sucks and is characterized by weird vegetal notes and muddled dumpster juice. Ugh. Just quit.

Bottle at RBWG 2014. Hazy amber color. Aroma of metallic burnt caramel. Taste is softly sour caramel. Weird.

750 ml bottle shared by? Pours a cloudy dirty amber brown color with no head. The aroma and flavor have tomato juice, citrus, light acidity, not good, but not as bad as I would have guessed.

Ferris (12904) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle - I get the tomato and a little spice. I have never seen a beer look so bad, brown cloudy with yellow bits? Tomato and some sour weird notes, soapy but drinkable.
