4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Smelling sweet fruity, ripe apples, pears, earthy aromas, stable.
Appearance: The beer is clear orange with medium bubbles, a high nearly white meringue-like head that settles slowly leaving loads of lacing. Some curtains.
Taste: The taste is complex, initially sweet, caramelized sugar, dried fruits, orange zest, ripe cheese.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, foamy bubbles, medium body soft texture and a smooth dry finish.
Overall: The 2011 version. Much better than 2010, well balanced, complex and really rewarding.

Pours a clear amber color with a big, lingering white head. The aroma is funky and somewhat musty, with touches of hops, fruit, and malts. Medium body with high carbonation, the flavor malty and peppery with a touch of apples. Highly drinkable and very delicious, this is probably the best French beer I have had.

Bronze body with a massive cap at time of pour sharp yeast, lots of smooth spice and only some funk in the aroma, this farm house is smelling yummy. Taste is more of the same , reminds of a better quality La Fin. Is easy to drink yet the flavor is intense. Some much malty goodness with a big yeast taste, brew somehow actually comes across crisp but mellow. Good brew thanks Jeff. Ouch Frank Mier just got knocked the fawk out.

2009. Clear orange brew with a big white bubbly skull, good sticky lacing as well. The aroma is very good! Nice spice, solid yeast, stiff sharp fruit (light apple, some tropical notes), Very nice - not complicated but that is fine. The taste is equally as enjoyable as the aroma. Well spiced, some pepper, allspice, apples and tropical, dank dark yeasty qualities - reminds me of a Unibroue. Solid spice finish, medium body, no oily finish or anything bad. This is a fine beer.

Funky, tart aroma with banana and stable elements. Clear golden white head. Malty sweet taste with lots of bread in combination with a fair bit of tartiness. Light body, lively carbonation dry. A really light and refreshing beer despite its alcohol content
