Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand - the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants Long ago led to the vision of what lies before you. After many months of conditioning with our resident microflora in barrels that formerly held our Mimosa, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed. Ingredients: American and European malts, American and New Zealand hops, Yeast, Brettanomyces, and our well water.

julian (30) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours a deep dirty hazy orange with a nice off white bubbly head. Spotty lacing, and a head that dissolves to a persistent foamy ring around the edges. Aroma is very juicy; spicy, fruity hops (citrus, papaya, mangos), stinky feet, wine, oak, barnyard funk, and bacterial sour/tartness. Taste is very similar however more bitterness comes through in the taste. Definitely highly hopped or high alpha hop varieties used. Lots of citrus and vinous flavors. Tart, funky. Very nice texture to this beer, high carbonation, dry, crisp but very drinkable. I wish this were a 750ml! Overall, excellent.

ctipping (536) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2015
375 mL bottle. Unknown originally review date, but I had this fresh. Hazy orange. A little hazy and murky looking. Nice white head. Gushed a little. Citrusy aroma. White wine. Bright and acidic. Hoppy orange with some lemony aromas. Taste very bright orange citrus. Acidic white wine. Grainy malts. White wine lingers past the citrus flavors, but the hops come through to provide some bitterness in the back. Crisp. Dare I say refreshing. Well carbonated. Extremely impressive. This review is from the first time I had this beer, which was pretty fresh. I was surprised to find this review after years. It does lose its punch and unique hop flavors after a while, but it remains a good beer.

Bottle at Max and Jess’s housewarming. Courtesy of Jay - thanks for this treat. Pours a hazy murky orange with white lacing. Mouthfeel is tart and juicy, medium-bodied; notes of dank fruits, tart sour candy and light minerality on the palate.

375 ml bottle shared by urbancaver- thanks again, Cam! Pours a cloudy orange gold with a small wispy white head that leaves a ring around the edge, too. The aroma was malty and musty, and I couldn’t get a whole lot through it; notes of orange zest, bread, mineral water, grass, and hay. The flavor brings more "Juicy" character, with orange, pineapple, bready malts, earth, hay, peach, apricot - nice and funky. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, fruity mouthfeel. Mineralic, too. Doesn’t live up to the hype, or maybe it’s just aged out of its prime; drink or trade if you still have one. Do not age any longer.

gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2015
Small bottle at home. Pours hazy dark golden orange with a small white head. Nice tangerine and orange peel aroma, some dried peach, thyme and white wine notes. Light to medium body with a nice subtle sourness going over in a dry soft bitterness. Taste is lots of stewed peach, aftertaste is soo nice, like a fine orange bitter.

MrHangover (3568) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle @ New Years Tasting, courtesy of kermis. Pours a hazy orange beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of barnyard, horse manure, dusty blankets. Flavor is medium sour, slightly yeasty breadyness in there, fruity and has some vineous characters in the back. Great complexity going on here, even after the age.
