Pours a vibrant, hazed golden-orange color, with a sizzling, huge white head, slowly fading down to a glass coating lacing. The nose is full of tart lemon zest, accompanied by white bread, funky cheese and leather, building the beers foundation. Its fruit impression gets enhanced by sour blood orange rind and wet mushrooms. All in all the aromas feature an intriguing balance between tart fruits and pleasant funk, coming well together, with notes of old potatoes, forest flowers and saw dust. Has an incredibly smooth mouthfeel to it, while the carbonation remains unusual high, which leads to an outstandingly pleasant drinking experience, finishing with soft mineralic qualities. Tastes of matured hops, hay, lemon rind and dough bread, while its fantastic mouthfeel and clean design reveals a plethora of nuances, encouraging me to keep on drinking. The beers refreshing qualities reveal themselves, as luscious, funk coated blood orange gets introduced. It packs a rich fruitiness, as well as a bitter punch, successfully balanced by hay and crackers. Its aqueous, mineralic quality gets the most noteable during the finish, due to a fusion of lively carbonation, blood orange and lime, creating a sappy, bitter, pleasantly funky finish, with a hint of fructose to it, adding even more depth to the bitterness. While this is certainly funky and tart, fruits are the mvp in this beer. The main difference to the popular fruit juice ipas is, that this beer is not entirely based on the fruits. It entangles them into recognizable barnyard qualities, which all benefit from the beers fantastic balance, opening the palate to many details, which becomes the beers biggest strengh overall. Very unique in taste, successfull on all fronts, while remaining its focussed freshness, this one is a winner.

Bottle from a trade with my good Rochester homie, thanks Justin. Pours a cloudy off golden almost more orange, massive white head that dies to nothing, no lacing. Nose is sweet, tart, orange and zest, perfumy, a touch barnyard. Tastes sweet, tart, orange, hibiscus, a little bitter, dryish. In a word, fantastic.

Dogbrick (9818) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Sample at the Northeastern Brewery (VT) Tasting on 08/16/2015. Hazy deep golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing o the glass. Aroma of funky fruit, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of funky brett, citrus, yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Bottle at home with friends. Tulip pour is yellowish haze with big head. Aroma is big light fruits like pear, apple, some citrus, some light floral notes, straw, honey, and funky yeasts. Tastes are similar with the citrus, pears, apples, funky yeasts, barrel, light pepper, and honey with flowers. Tart, carbonated finish. Crisp and delicious.
