JohnGalt1 (1434) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Picked this up tonight at the Boise COOP for $14... Cheaper than any other place in town. Pours a very hazy pale straw golden... fizzy white head dies back quickly.. light spott lacing. Whoa... the nose is plenty hoppy.. but very buggy.. brett is big lemony essence.. grassy and some barnyard... "Farmhouse" for sure.. piney hops grow with warmth so does the brett. Dry and dusty brett is the big player here... citrus and spicy notes play well.. green apple skin tartness... a heavy pine hoppiness is the finish almost like pine branches. Dry brett finish just lingers forever. Very interesting.. huge carbonation and the expected body... but I doubt I will buy this again.. "one and done"... glad I got the chance, but the quality just did not make me think I want another big purchase. Serving type: bottle

UXO (1309) - CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Appearance: cloudy pale straw with a massive overflowing white head gradually settling down to a two finger cap with excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: lemon zest, wet straw, tropical fruit, crackery malt. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (9/10) Light body, lively carbonation, astringent lingering funky finish. (4/5) Yep, that’s a Mikkeller brew, all right. Huge overflowing brett head, lemony tartness, and a barnyard funk that just won’t quit. Worth the price? Ehhh… - probably not, but that’s another core character of a Mikkeller brew, right? Works for me! (17/20)

Aroma is clove, lemongrass, soured grapes and a slight earthiness. Taste is sweet malts, tart, clove and light sour notes and a subtle bitterness. Well balanced overall. Appearance is a hazy gold with a fluffy medium head that retains quite well.

750ml corked bottle pours a light hazy golden color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light lemon with some yeasty and spicy notes. Taste is a lemon tartness with a light fruity and malty sweetness and a light earthy and spicy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a respectable farmhouse, but not one of the better ones I have tried.

Bottle shared by Mat C. Color: hazy golden blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: grassy and hoppy domination. Floral expression with small brett finish. Nice bouquet. Taste: medium body with superb bitterness. Herbal and fresh balanced with brett notes. Really floral beer. Superb balance. Good attenuation. Aftertaste: astringent with brett sourness and bitterness.

Derek881 (1231) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2016
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a very hazy and cloudy lighter straw-gold-lemon color with a super large, extremely foamy white head with long-lasting retention, and solid cling and lacing. Its aroma featured strong farmhouse style notes, including straw, grain, citrus, and spices, along with some lemon zest, and lighter grassy and pine hops. The taste was somewhat sweet and full of citrus notes, with a sour undertone throughout featuring pine and grass, along with mild bitterness. It was a very lively beer with lots of carbonation and a super bubbly mouthfeel with a thinner body and dry finish, almost with a champagne-like effect.

Pour was hazy cloudy golden yellow with some orange hues and decent head and lacing. Aroma of citrus and fruits and Bret funk. Flavor followed suit with some dough and pine. Mouthfeel full and well carbonated. Good stuff.

superspak (4311) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2016
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 10/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, lime, pineapple, peach, mango, peppercorn, pine, citrus rind, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, floral, grass, light leather/musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, lime, pineapple, peach, mango, peppercorn, pine, citrus rind, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, floral, grass, light leather/musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, lime, pineapple, peach, mango, peppercorn, pine, citrus rind, hay, straw, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from carbonation, bitterness, and yeast spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding Belgian IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

ryecatcher (1269) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2016
750mL bottle. Hazy pale yellow-gold pour, big foamy white face with exceptional retention and lace. Nose is funk forward, Brett, lilies, lemongrass, hay, minerals. Mouth is medium-full, bright citrus notes riding a funky wave of Brett, light sweetness, medium bitterness, bread dough, slightly tart. Way more like a hoppy Saison than an IPA but whatever. Its very tasty.
