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.

Good deal of carbonation with a thick white head and a slightly orange-yellow appearance. Yeasty, musty nose. Slightly metallic and a light sour, tart component as well. This beer improved much as the carbonation settled and the complex subtleties of the beer shone through.

The appearance of this beer was the first clue of how classy and remarkable it would be. Lasting, foamy, billows of puffy head. Some peppery, mossy, slightly sour (earthy) aromatic notes. Tasted some dust and metallic flavors as well. Malty thickness (rye bread)comes out as it warmed, was hardly apparent when chilled.

Cloudy with floaties and a deep orange yellow color with a white head. Alcohol, raisin, fruity/malty aroma with notes of pear, apricot and peach. Big sticky malt flavor with loads of fruit. Rich and well balanced. Interesting and nice.

Bottled. This beer is reminiscent of red wine or champagne. Pours a light orange color with a snow white head. It finishes like wine, but perhaps not as bitter. This 750mL bottle was well worth the $7.00 I paid for it.
