3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer marches on and smells like an old horse bogged down by a few massive bales of hops. Big ol’ leather-filled barnyard, apricot and other fruit, hint of sour tang, pronounced peppery thing, hop and brett stagecoach collision exploding the finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Murky orange gold pour. Aroma of funk, tart lemon, pine tree, pepper, and crack crumb. Dry palate. Very good. Slightly drier than Orval, but I would say it rivals that beer. Not disappointed.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A 750ml caged and corked bottle from Batch #4, bottled in October 2015. Poured into a Mikkeller long stemmed tulip glass. It poured a cloudy golden straw yellow colour with a two finger white head with good retention and left great lacing. Aromas are big juicy tropical mango and pineapple, citrus lemon, lemon peel, lime, orange, some brett and funk with a hint of black peppercorn and herbs. Taste is quite similar to the aromas with tropical mango and pineapple shouting out followed by lots of citrus lemon and orange, peel and rind. There’s some light farmhouse funk, hay and pepper spice on the finish. Dry, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, just brilliant. Brett doesn’t always work, but it works so well in this Farmhouse IPA. Very nice tropical and citrus aromas and taste that worked well together and coupled with the light farmhouse funkiness was very balanced. The 8% abv just did not feel like it was there and I was drinking it like it was a sessionable beer. A must buy beer in my book.

Bottle. Colour...hazy golden-yellow with a corpulent white head. Nose...funky and lemony with hoppy notes and something almost cypress like. Palate... full, frothy, gorgeous and dripping with hop cones and tart funk. There’s loads of zippy, fresh citrus and biting hops on the mid palate and the finish is long, fresh and peppy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opalescent bright golden with a large frothy white head, good lacings. Aromas of funky barnyard, straw, hay, young apricot and green pineapple develop. Effervescent and tangy, lightly slick texture with a light-medium rather slender body, coming at a surprise at such abv. Briskly sweet and offering a nice fruity hop bitterness with light funky acidity. Short light juicy finish, drying out at the back end. Nice one.
