2012 bomber pours a clear orange with a big off-white head but practically no lacing. Smells like an IPA. Aroma is quite different: lemon, yeast, and white grapes. Tastes like a sour Belgian with a long dry finish Body is at best medium without too much carbonation. Iíve enjoyed some other New Holland "Hatters" in this series, but this is my least favorite so far. I probably will not try it again.

Gachupines (850) - USA - MAR 5, 2013
Golden with a thin white head. Aroma is strong citrus. Flavor is hops with an even stronger citrus oil flavor which becomes more apparent as it warms. Finish leaves a little bitter astringency on the back of the tongue. Pretty interesting.

Light colored, well-carbonated. The yeast character in this is lovely, with more funk and berries than spice. Unfortunately the hop character is merely ok, slightly bitter, and not very smooth at that . It is well brewed and at itís best is a light grassy/berry summer treat, but it just doesnít go where the american hops can. I never new American hops could pair well with a Belgian yeast, though, until I tried Iron Hill Belgian IPA, Stoneís Cali-Belgique doesnít do it for me either.

Poured from a a cold bottle. Clear, carbonated light amber color, large off-white frothy head. Bold spice and cinnamon aroma. Medium body slick texture with average carbonation, moderate sweetness with a spicy, tangy wild yeast flavor with a mild bitter finish..

Slightly hazy honey-gold color with ample head. Green apple, citrus and grassy hops on the nose. Taste - Citrusy & grassy hops, a little fruity, yeasty and floral. Pretty dry and spritzy. This is pretty good but I donít love it.

dagimp (699) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Poured from a bomber into a brandy snifter. 2012 vintage otherwise no bottle date. Pours with a lot of fizzy head but little lacing. Mildly funky, hippy and tart aroma. Mouthfeel is very light with too much carbonation. Taste is lemon, funk, grassy hops, Belgian taste, cedar and clay. You know, this could have been a great beer. Ultimately, it just doesn't have enough flavor. It is kinda like seltzer water flavored like a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
