3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a slightlt cloudy burnt orange with full thick head. Aroma is very fruity. Loads of tropical and citrus fruits with a bunch of Belgian yeast and a little bubblegum and spice at the end. Taste is light bitter. Belgian yeast and herbal and citrus hops dominate. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Not my favorite but very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-12-2012 @ 800 Degrees (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer pours a small ivory head that was mostly lasting, transparent body, spotty amounts of lacing, very little carbonation, and a golden hue. The Aromas consist of malt, wheat, funky yeast, hops, fruity, and spicy. This beer taste sweet, bitter, malty, yeasty, spicy, and pine hops. The Palate is tingly and semi-dry. This beer is light-medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is quaffable, a "hophead" beer and is worth trying.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. Light orange color, with a medium, beige head and solid lacing. The aroma is big resinous and citrusy hops, lemon zest, salt, and some funk. Musty and chalky sweetness, and mild, buttery hop bitterness that lingers through the finish. Medium body, acidic, silky, and surprisingly smooth. Overall, this is a nicely funky, hoppy, easy-drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Buttery caramel, funky Belgian yeast, and a tropical fruity hops aroma. Slightly hazed straw gold with a large white head. Flavor practically identical to the aroma - Caramel malt, yeast, and tropical fruity hops. Body on the light side of medium, soft carbonation.

Pours a pale, cloudy orange. Aroma is that grassy peppery saison with some citrus in there. Taste is wonderful. New Holland did the right thing here, didn’t overpower us with hops, giving the beer very solid hop flavor and bitterness, but not too much. This raises the typical bland and mild saison (in my experience) to a new level. Excellent brew.

Not a bad spring or summer brew (depending on how hot your summers are...). Light & crisp citrus zest with a nice floral overtone that lasts while complimenting the bitters in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
8/01/2011: New Holland Farmhouse Hatter (Farmhouse I.P.A. - Belgian-style Pale Ale)... Aroma: Really nice tropical fruits (papaya, pineapple, and banana) paired with a subtle spice character. Appearance: Cloudy orange-gold color with waves of carbonation and a ballooning heaf of dense, rocky, ivory-colored head; great lacing. Flavor: Grapefruit and citrus peel hop flavor right up front along with some herby leaf hops that taste a bit like basil and spearmint; moderate bitterness overall; biscuit malt blends seemlessly with the hoppiness; quite floral, notes of perfume, a bit soapy toward the backside; really spicy (a touch peppery) and fairly dry (cedar?) through the finish with more oily-soapy-perfume coming out. Palate: Medium-bodied; nicely caronbated; but not over carbonated; fairly smooth. Overall: All of the flavors are pretty well-balalnced, but I am pretty much done with the non-traditional Belgian-fusion styles (e.g. Pale Ale, IPA, Stout, etc.); the overly spicy Belgian yeast character just doesn’t work for me in this beer; I’m not disappointed because my expectations were already reduced based on the style; skip this and stick with the NEW HOLLAND RYE HATTER!
