A golden colored, high gravity (O.G. 1.074) ale, brewed with pilsner, wheat and caramunich malts, along with a good dose of American hops and fermented with Jester Kingís farmhouse yeast, finishing at 9.3% alcohol by volume. It is a hop forward beer with dank, resinous hop flavor and aroma, balanced by lightly kilned malt flavors, farmhouse yeast esters and a bit of warming alcohol.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazed golden with a thin off white layer. A funky fruity nose. A farmhouse flabor leads. It is funky, malty, and fruity. It smooths out shortly and becomes a bit buttery. Soft fruit. This is nice.

Sammy (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Fresh American style farmhouse yeast aroma. Enormous bubbly white head on hazy yellow. Smooth drinking and very drinkable farmhouse, with enough hops to keep it on the bitter side and interesting. Some spice in the finish.

Very hop forward with a tangy, pungent aroma of banana and yeast. Tastes exactly like it smells- almost sour but controlled.

From notes, 1/9/12: Had this served on-tap at the Draught House in Austin in an imperial half-pint glass. A: Cloudy light orange; nice head that settles quickly. Lacing only left at top of glass. S: Definitely a hop-forward farmhouse ale. Resiny hops followed by Belgian funk; light malts in the background. T: Taste follows the smell; yeasty esters more apparent. Alcohol lets you know itís there without being overbearing. Great warming effect for rainy or cold days. M: A little on the thick side, but appropriate for such a big ale. O: Made me think of a hoppy, funky, not quite as complex, Duvel. Thatís why I designated it as a BSPA, but feel free to edit me on that one. Really enjoyed this one; will grab a bottle when itís released.
