On tap at New Holland on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear gold, a little watery looking, with a thin white head. Fuzzy hops, a bit of musk. Weird sweet plastic falvors, tingly odd flavors to it. Long bitter f inish, something off here, but Iím not sure what.

Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden orange color with a two finger frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Large chunks and streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Floral, earthy aroma with lots of citrus fruit and zesty spice. Thereís a slight pine presence but the nose is dominated by the peppery spice and sweet fruit notes. Hints of pepper and coriander along with some mango, grapefruit and orange peel. Some pale malt underneath. I was expecting it to smell a bit funkier because of the saison yeast but the nose is more reminiscent of a west coast IPA with an estery Belgian yeast twist. Medium bodied with a blast of dry, bitter hops up front that dominate the flavor and linger into a bone dry finish. Earthy with lots of soily pine flavor as well as some citrus/light fruit. The nose had me expecting a strong citrus hop flavor but it was pretty faint and overpowered by the drier, bitter notes. Hints of grapefruit and orange peel but nothing that would suggest that this is a farmhouse beer or that any saison/farmhouse yeast was used. I was pretty disappointed in the lack of this characteristic and the overall lack of complexity.

Pours a semi clear golden colour with a small white head. Sampled at The Local Tavern-pre party night...Nioce and spicey but nothing that stood out too much. A pleasent creamy yet very clean mouthfeel. Soft fruity aftertaste. Great beer, but maybe a tad soft in the style.

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

Bomber to pint. Looks okay, but doesnít smell like an IPA. Overly doughy and Belgiany. Tastes the same way; the flavors fight each other. Mouthfeel is average (at best). Not again.

The aroma is like fresh paint with herbs, spices, and citrus. The appearance is cloudy amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall not a winner for me.

Gusher! Poured/Caught from a bottle into a snifter. Appearance is a hazy copper with an off white head of foam. Okay head retention. Aroma is faint fruitiness and a light floral hop profile. Taste is super strange. Its kind of grassy and astringent. Once you get past the astringency, a sweet tart taste comes through. I donít think I can make it through the rest of my glass. Not pleasant. Overall a bad experience.

On tap at new holland. Clear golden with white head. Aroma is big bubblegum, yeast and alc, perfume as well. Flavor is alc, perfume, punch you in the face bubblegum, pretty sweet. Medium with light creamy body. A little bit of a mess.
