3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a saison. Thick head. Malty. Grapefruit tinge. Harsh washdown. Mildy ok. Not crisp and clean. Seems like it wants to be something it’s not. Overrated brew. Nothing extradordinary or underwhelming. A bit boring so to speak.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Köpenhamn 14/9. Luktar och smaker som en hel bondgård (stall, ammoniak, gödsel). Kort eftersmak, tack och lov. Nej, ingenting för mig!

Black, roast, tasty fruity, good strong hop impact. A cross style.
Very tasty beer, but still somewhat overated. thanks Beerenger.

Hazy straw yellow in color... Aroma is earthy spicy, creamy smooth... Flavor is intensely spicy, creamy mouthfeel, grains and light hops on the finish... Love it

Golden color with ample head. Smells of horse blanket, coriander, other spices, clove, pepper, soap. A spicy initial taste, with the clove like flavors, gives way to some hop bitter then smoothed out with some malt flavors. Relatively simple but done well. Enjoyed.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Tap at Trappist, Oakland. Hazy yellow pour with lasting white head. Loads of lovely tropical fruit in the aroma: kiwi and mango with a nice zesty lime twist. Some spritzy lightly musty Belgian yeastiness in the aroma too. Big lime and tropical fruit zing in the taste, crisp fruity yeast notes, loads of passionfruit and mango coming through. Lovely fruity yeast to finish, with lingering juicy orange and mango. Stunning stuff.

Bottle. Very cloudy straw yellow pour, with a big white head and nice lacing. Guava, great tropical fruit flavor, pineapple, lemon zest, hay, fresh nelson hops, light malt, dry cereal malt, and some brett. Quite enjoyable, Merica, f-k yeah!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This isn’t the most accessible beer, but it is chock full of awesome. The Pilsner malt encourages the wearing of a nice trucker’s cap while the NS hops and perhaps the farmhouse yeast make one wonder exactly how many passports this beer is holding. The hops are intensely bitter, the yeast sports funk and acidity while there is a bit of salty character in the malt. This is a rich, complex, category bending romp.

Awesome funky fresh tropical farmhouse aroma, the yeast and hops really work well together here. It pours a cloudy yellow color with huge thick head. The taste has some great hoppy dry bitterness. Medium bodied, lively and had long satisfying finish. This may be my new favorite beer and I can actually get it in Hawaii , the high ABV is not even noticeable on the palate this beer really is work of art.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy orange with a white head. Enticing, fresh, distinct aroma of farmhouse, mild brett, hay, grass, lemon and french lavender soap. Sweetish, hoppy, herbal flavor. Semi dry grapey finish. Wellcrafted, but not as exceptional as the storytelling led me to believe.
