COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We bring in the hops for this brew from New Zealand, where locals use the term “Boohai” to describe being thoroughly lost in a remote or non-existant place far from civilization. To us, that sounded like a pretty good place to be. These unique hops present a noticeable aroma of blackberries, Sauvignon Blanc grapes and pine which come together nicely with a complex blend of Belgian malts to make a deep, yet sublimely pleasant beer.

olsvammel (4008) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2015
Can at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity smell with an aroma that I have a hard time pinpointing. I think it’s gooseberry, white wine and blackberry. Similar taste, malty and hoppy. A bit buttery. Very smooth and easy to drink.

tnkw01 (1316) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Can. Clear, copper amber color with a decent head. Aroma is a tad weak with a fruity pine smell. Taste was also weak, a citrus kind of taste. Just an average brew.

Barreras (1228) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours a light copper color, with a light malt aroma that had a hint of blueberry. Taste is similar, with a minor clean blueberry flavor and a very light pine aftertaste.

Suttree (5474) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Hazy reddish orange, not much head. Smells caramel and citrusy. Tastes caramel and citrusy. I am out of things to say about this beer.

Turtles (356) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2015
355ml can. Hazy Ruby / copper, creamy yellowish head. No greater aroma, slightly caramel sweet, malty aroma. The flavor starts sweet and turns quickly to bitter herbs and pine. Creamy liquid, missing hops flavors, lacks balance.

edgallow (2678) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2015
Draft sampler pours Amber with a off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus and malts. Taste is resin and some grapefruit.

nearbeer (4117) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2015
12 oz. can. Hazy light amber with a film of creamy bubbles. Big nose of caramel, resin, cocoa, mild citrus, peach and strawberry. Tastes of strawberry, resin and toffee. Dry finishing touches of toasted walnut, green herb, dry grass, ash and citrus zest. Light-medium body has a nice balance and low-medium carbonation. Tasty and refreshingly different take on an oft-times boring style.

CervezaCabeza (46) - Le Mans, FRANCE - FEB 22, 2015
Pours cloudy copper color with a generous fluffy ivory head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is spicy grapefruit and juniper. Flavor is hoppy and malty a good yin yang balance. Complex but subtle. I was pleasantly surprised by this hoppy red ale.

BOSSbrewer (2683) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Can at home. Pours a slightly hazy amber with one finger of off white head. Aroma is citrus, some grapefruit rind and orange peel. Slightly malty. Decent beer.

AFMcKone (35) - Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Resinous, treebark, bitter orange peel. Not much substance to the palate. Not bad but not great.
