3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at La Fin Mousse. Pours hazy orange with a small, lace lit white head. Nose is more farmhouse than hops - straw, lemon rind, citrus, dry, spice, pepper. Quite citrus driven fruits with heavy influence from spice and lemon. Farmhousey but not over the top. Solid stuff

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
very light gold almost clear, decent pillowy topper with good lacing, bubblegum, pepper and spicy hop nose. Taste is bicuity malt, Belgian yeast, lemon pepper and hebaceous hop. Would like to try side by side with the raging bitch, this is a lighter take on the belgian ipa style. It is more a hoppy Belgian pale than an IPA. Noticed the first bottle label said saison and now says farmhouse IPA. Marketing study?

This is definitely delicious. Spicy, peppery, very full of flavor. Not for everyone, but I love it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz served in a snifter glass
A - Pours a brassy gold color with 2 fingers of white head. Pretty good retention and lacing.
S - Spicy Belgian yeast, molded hay, dusty, dried peaches and apricots, light taffy notes.
T - Grassy bitterness really pounds the palate up front. Mineral infused soda water and a strong medicinal character rides underneath a dry water cracker-like malt. Dried lemons come out as it warms up a bit. The grassy pushes all the way through the very, very, very dry finish.
M - Medium, semi-thick body at first but the micro-carbonation quickly turns the mouthfeel airy.
Nice and spicy. Love the dryness of this beer but the hops provide a punishing bitterness that really blacks out alot of the flavors. Some medicinal phenolic notes stuck out as well.
Throwing truck loads of hops in a beer doesn’t always make the good beer. Having said that I would buy this again.

Pours clear orange amber with low white head. Aroma is a fruit bomb! Mango, apricot, etc. Yeast, some caramel. Taste is initial fruit sweet before a light balancing bitterness. Somewhat sweet finish. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.
