Huhzubendah (2434) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 9, 2013
The beer appears extremely hazy and pure yellow with an inch of soapy white head. The aroma is simply fabulous. Dank hops and farmhouse funk. So fresh. Wow. Great flavor as well. Beautiful blend of Nelson hops and saison character. A healthy amount of bitterness in the back, finishing dry. The aroma is slightly superior to the flavor, but the beer is firing on all cylinders. Superb.

CanIHave4Beers (3199) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours a very hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head that leaves itís share of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is just permeating with the Nelson Sauvin hops, dank, fruity, melony, stinky Nelson Sauvin. Some light fruity ester, some light minerality, but mostly stinky hops.

The flavor is pretty in line with what Iíve come to expect (& very much like) from this brewery, itís a yeast thing... and thus far they seem to have it under control. The beer is dry and a with touches of banana and tartness, a good minerally character... this one is decidedly hoppier than any of the others though, or at least a lot more hop forward in itís approach. Again, like the aroma much of the character of the beer is derived from the pungent character of the Nelson Sauvin hops, while maintaining a pleasant & moderate bitterness the fruit, bright grapiness, and melon flavors from the hops really shine here. Things are pretty well balanced all around here, and the beer is really very drinkable considering itís higher than I usually dig for the style "boost" level.

vyvvy (3909) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Sampled at Perennialís Midwest Belgian Beer Festival - Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma has nectar fruits, tropical fruits and other fruit notes as well and is balance by pale malt. It has a medium / full body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts with pale malt, spice, nectar fruit and earthy yeast. The finish is mineral heavy. Nicely done.

dagimp (706) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2013
From a 500ml bottle into a snifter. $10at Whole Foods so this better be good. Pours a very hazy blonde; just so murky! Tons of luxuriant/luxurious head; just white clouds of frothy lacing. Smell is excellent. Just dank funkyness. Mouthfeel is light and dry butt too carbonated. Taste is deep dark dank funk all the way. Not sure if this has Brett in it but that's the taste of it. Surprisingly good and I was angry about the cost. I may even buy it again someday. If it was $6-7 a bottle I'd buy it tomorrow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BoostIPA (1219) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a murky banana yellow with a large puffy white head. Aromas of distinctly bright citrus rind. Taste is citrusy (but not in an IPA way), with some banana. Very bright tasting. Like a ray of sunshine. Pretty fucken good.

jredmond (5266) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep hazy yellow with nice thick white lacing. Aroma is funky lemons and sank Nelson hop. Sounds good so far. Mouthfeel is soft an almost fluffy with super perfect lemon and funky Nelson. Fresh grassy hop as well. Awesome.

deekyn (1142) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 4, 2013
A - pours hazy glowing light orange straw with 1 finger white head. Nice retention and sticky lacing. S - musty grasses/pineapple/lemon zest. Now I know what Nelson hops smell like. Musty and resiny grasses and pineapple. Lightly soapy. Bready and yeasty. M - light body with a fuller finish. Average carb. Sweet light finish with simple bitterness. T - follows the nose well. Musty resiny Nelson hops roll nicely to a yeasty sweeter bready/simple sugar end. O - simple and quite lovely. Really nice hoppy farmhouse ale. 3.8

BelgianBeerGal (3103) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2013
75cl C&C bottle from summer secret Santa. Explosive carbonation that no joke ricocheted the cork off the ceiling as soon as the cage was removed. Pours a murky gold color with no real head but bubbly carbonation. nice aroma of citrus and green hops. The flavor is more true to style (a little more spice and earthiness) but with an American twist of added hoppiness. Really tasty.
