Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is vinous, sour and spiced, and the flavour is bitter and sour. Overall a nice beer.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Tasted at a The LoSBD meeting, thanks to RAYBOY01: It poured a slightly hazed amber body with a fluffy beige head. The aroma had floral scents and a touch of Bretty funk (JPís thing) over toffee, vanilla, and wood. The flavor added a citrusy tartness and bitterness that blended smoothly with an increased funk. The finish was dry and moderately bitter. A very nice brew, but Iím not sure what it has to do with the APA style as itís categorized here.

hazy orange, nice off white head, some lace. nose floral and citrus hops. lots of oak barrel in the taste, touch of citrus hops, touch of floral hops. medium bodied, floral finish. ultimately, a touch too sweet for me. sampled at a LoSBD tasting. i think rayboy01 provided the sample.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Pours orange/amber pour with big rocky white head. Oaky head and some funk; maybe a bit too much tannic barrel/vanilla for me. Some hops as well. Quite good, but for me, it paled next to the superior Good Harbor Golden.

Pours a slightly hazy pale amber with a one finger offwhite head. The nose is tart and yeasty, oaky, tannic, mild vanilla. The flavor is tannic and oaky, nice vanilla, tart, yeasty, acidic. Tannic/acidic palate. Very tasty.

TURDFERGUSON (4046) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle from coyotehunter. Thanks Matt! Shiiiiiiiiiiiiit. This beer is fucking delicious. Deep, hazy orange amber with a huge, pillowy white head. Nose is very clean, yet dank. Oak, some bugs, great farmhouse character. Flavor is delicately dry and beautifully bitter. Earthy, oaky, slightly bretty and hoppy flavor. Wow. This is an amazing american pale ale. Ron Jeffries does it again. This beer rivals orval. Itís that good.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Iíve been avoiding this beer for a while due to the cost, but I must say Iím glad I finally dropped the cash - first, this is a beautiful beer - cloudy orange, with a frothy, lasting head, that leaves a sticky, thick lace - a slight leathery brett character in the nose, damp oak, bitter orange and peach pits - the flavor is dry and flinty, with a barky, quinine-like bitterness - some dry, crackery malts, hay - earthy, musty, lightly bretty/barnyardy - a bit of citrus fruit tartness on the back - the oak is a little too potent in the finish, but I canít complain that much, because otherwise this is a great.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle from Beermerchants. Hazy copper with a huge rocky tan head. Lemony aroma with hints of oak and brettanomyces. Acidic tastes combining with solid bitterness makes a very dry finish. Lemons and barnyard notes. A very unusual pale ale with Orvalesque character.

Belgo (154) - KÝge, DENMARK - APR 25, 2009
Bottle. Perfectly crystal clear amber color (the bottle had been stored upright in the beer fridge for about a month, so....) with a nice, lasting white head. The aroma is clearly one, where the maturation in oak casks as well as something else than just brewers yeast has a play ;-) A lot of grainy maltiness, complemented by fresh, flowery hops, notes of newly cut grass and some barnyard, horsy aromas. Very complex. The flavour goes along the same lines. Very lean on the palate with a nice bitterness and just a hint of sourness at the end. An unusual and truly great pale ale.
