I was born in Western Michigan, so I really want to like the brews from New Holland. Unfortunately, most of the beers are very middling. This bours a barely hazy brown shade of amber with white head. Scent is almost nonexistent. Taste is a nondescript bland bitter. Palate is decent, but that cannot be any beers saving grace. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

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

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells remarkably like floral soap. Don’t 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
