tom10101 (3901) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). From SlovakSniper, thanks! Hazy golden with a huge mostly lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is of farmhouse yeast, light acidic presence/citus, noble hops, fruity notes and grassy. Taste is of citrus, farmhouse character, spices with a sharp bitter finish. Light/medium body, but there’s something lacking (Belgiumness? cereals?). Moderate/good carbonation. Dry finish. Good rustic Belgian Ale. With a couple refinements to the palate, this one could become really good! Drinkable.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle: thick, completely opaque golden orange with a super huge, chunky & foamy white head that leaves excellent lacing behind. Aroma is full of nice, dry farmhouse yeast, wood, grass, straw, white pepper, & a very mild lemon note. Taste is pretty smooth, with more peppery yeast, lighter on the farmhouse notes with some notable wood, orange, & hay. Just a hint of tartness with a finish of grass, oak, bready yeast, & faint pepper. Pretty quaffable stuff... nice farmhouse ale.
