3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells remarkably like floral soap. Donít know whether this odor is good or bad. Tally ho! After a slew of subpar beers, a surprise helps turn things around! Farmhouse Hatter is quite the interesting beer, not a stunner, but with enough curiosities to keep me occupied for a while. It pours with the best of them, a gorgeous gold with a huge, fluffy white head that leaves lace with reckless abandon. Tastes solid, with more of a Belgian slant than that of a strong American IPA. The soap thing comes through, but the finish is bitter and yeasty and with a slowly evolving tang. Like I said, curious, and not in a bad way.

Bright gold color with small head and nice lacing. Aroma is weak but has a light tartyness. Flavor is also a bit light, with a balance of sweet hops and funkyness. Okay overall

Appearance is amber with champagne-like effervescence and good retention. Aroma is spicy Belgian yeast, citrus, caramel, and dough. Taste is dominated by very spicy yeast wit hside notes of caramel, tartness, funk, and citrus on the finish. Body is medium, frothy, thin, finishes bitter. Overall, a decent farmhouse but a bit unbalanced; dominated by spice and hop bitterness, too many strong flavor vying for supremacy.

Farmhouse funk. Yeah, thatís right. Decent in ways and others not. Too sour for instance. Nice brown tan IPA color. Nice head too.

22oz bottle served in a Blvd. Tank 7 tulip. Poured a hazy amber/gold with a couple of fingers of white head. Very fragrant with citrus and pine from the hops and a good dose of Belgian yeast spice. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Starts off with plenty of hop bitterness. Finishes with some Belgian spice. Very drying from hops in the finish as well. Very fresh tasting, which I always like. Interesting beer. Easy drinking.

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 donít 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 wasnít that. The hop level is appropriate for the style. Lower ABV than Iíd expect for something like this.
