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.

On tap at the Michigan Fall Beer Fest. A nice bit of funkiness. Quite refreshing with a nice tartness.

Draught at Sugar Maple, Milwaukee 23/viii/13. Belgian farmhouse funk & IPA hop freshness do mix, but not when the farmyard funk feels injected like a chemical adjunct. Dry, yeast astringent. Bit unnecessary. I prefer to see farmyard/IPA crossovers approached from other side of the equasion (De la Senne, Blaugies/Hill Farmstead coop), where quality US hops can be imported and injected into fully farmhouse yeasts given enough old world time.

(bottle - 22 oz) Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Yeasty and spicy aroma with a very light funk quality to it. Some very light hops in both the nose and the flavor at the start. The malts take over and leave a slightly spicy aftertaste. More spice than hops. Unusual and good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bomber, pour to shaker. Slightly hazy, dark gold; medium head. Heavy lace. The brewer’s claim of "spicy, tart farmhouse funk" describes it well. Hoppy like a mild IPA.

Great beer. Rich golden color, nice head. Faint nose. Perfect balance of farmhouse yeast and hops. Goes great with anything, and in bottle, seems fantastically cheap wherever I find it.

Pours a nice peach colour with lacing. Aromas of peach and lemon. Nice saison type flavours. Lemon, some funk, bitter hops. Really nice.
