Earthy noble hops and rustic farmhouse yeast create an elegant balance in this dry and drinkable golden ale. Naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

750ml bottle that a friend split with me, interesting label. Cloudy orange color, almost amber. Smells sort of belgian, a little rustic (what does that even mean really?), yeasty. Taste has a hint of aspirin, I think its the hops but my buddy swears its the yeast. Either way this was quite a refreshing beer and Id like to taste their other offerings.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl. Beautiful hazy golden with a creamy white head, very good retention and lace. Yeasty nose with farmhouse accents and citrussy fruity hop notes. Light sweet medium bitter taste with a dry, astringent mouthcleansing finish. Rustic yet delicate.

Its gorgeous clear, golden orange with fluffy, off-white head, well sustained and leaving nice lacing. Its got a bright piny aroma, with a bit of citrus and some dank barnyard and hay. After it warms just a bit, its a little earthy, biscuity, mild bitters and sweetness. The noble hops do great with this farmhouse style, great concept, well executed. The finish is semi-dry. Mouthfeel is medium-full. Its a great brew.

Pours a cloudy orange/straw color with fluffy head. Aroma is nice spicy hops with some banana, musty basement, and citrus. Taste is medium sweet with a lightly bitter hoppy finish. Really good stuff.

Bottle, 11/12/2012. Pours cloudy orange, dense foamy white head. Aroma is pale cereal malts, yeast, light fruitiness with touch of honey, floral hops. Taste mostly follows suit- pale malts with citrusy, grassy hops, yeast, mellow herbal bitter finish. Medium light palate. Decent, but just.

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle at CPK, London. Poured a hazy lemon color with a giant two-finger head; extremely over carbonated. Smell is citrus, fruity hops, light pepper, a hint of funk, and lemon peel. Taste is lemon, straw, pepper, light brett, and a medium bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Nice hoppy taste, with a crisp finish.

Pours a nice hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is a beautiful bouquet of hops both citrus and floral with hints of pine and yeast. Flavor is similar with a nice bit of grassy, herbal, floral, and mildly piney hops. Light in body and interesting, but heavenly with the roasted peppers from the Farm to Table Pavilion at GABF.

Bottle at Barley Swine in Austin. This wheaty, hoppy farmhouse ale is the perfect evocation of a country summer day. Has me excited to get out into Hill Country while we're in town! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
