bottle - Pours amber with an aroma of citrus and Belgian yeast. It’s a good, flavorful brew with citrus and spice character, assertive hops, and a medium body. It seems to hit what it’s trying to do pretty well though it’s not outstanding.

Bottle. The look is copper in color, white colored head, and a slight haze. The smell is spice, earth, fruit, yeast, and berries. The taste is tang, fruit, yeast, and funk.

May have been a bit past its prime - it literally exploded out of the bottle, though still a very enjoyable beer; amber color; citrusy, spicy aroma; nice citrusy hop flavor with the spicy, fruity notes of a Belgian ale

Perfectly balanced beer with slight hop taste. A good summer beer or saison you could drink multiple of.

I can not see how this got such a high rating... To me it doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor. I can taste the hops and it has a tangy spice, but that’s all i taste. It has a mild hoppy smell, and a nice caramel orange color. But it also appears to be unfiltered. It has tons of small solid chunks mixed throughout. they settled after a while. I cant give it a higher rating than a 3.4. I just wasn’t that impressed.

This is a good beer from New Holland. Definitely worth trying. It wont knock your socks off, but it wont disappoint either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Tap: Hazy copper-ish, amber-ish body with a dark beige head, frothy & foamy atop the brew. Aroma contains light citric, leafy hops, mild hay & farm funk notes with a touch of damp cotton. Slightly grassy, lemon zest in the finish. Taste is very similar with more sharp orange, citrus, & pineapple zest out of the gate. Farmhouse character comes through with faint cotton & hay funk, slightly musty & damp. A touch of tartness near the finish, but far from sour. More grassy & leafy hops in the aftertaste. Like a mild, hopped up saison. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bomber poured in a snifter. Aroma is pleasant spice but faint. Appearance ruddy red and cloudy. Initial flavor is thin and somewhat acidic and juicy. Finish is more musty and bitter. Not awful but I don’t really see much in the way of redeeming value in this brew. I was worried this would be overly-hopped like many New Holland beers are, and at least this wasn’t that. The hop level is appropriate for the style. Lower ABV than I’d expect for something like this.
