COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber hued ale takes it’s inspiration from Germany while still nodding to the Belgian farmhouse tradition. The base is comprised of German two-row, wheat, Cara-Munich, and roasted barley. Generously hopped with a blend of Perle, Spalt, and Hallertau Mittelfrüh and fermented with a rustic Belgian farmhouse ale yeast. These elements together provide a melange of earth and fruit aromas backed with hints of caramel with a dry clean finish.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Cloudy, medium ruddy brown with a 1 finger, frothy beige head. Aroma is full of sharp bready, peppery yeast notes, some cereal, toast and spicy hops. Flavor is similarly very yeasty, tons of bready yeast, literally as strong as easting a chunk of rising bread dough or drinking beer from the fermenter near the end of primary fermentation, light toast, nut skins, roast, caramel and floral and spicy hops. Medium dry body with a light, blanketing and quite sharp carbonation. Ok overall, but the yeast was pretty overbearing, and in a raw yeast kinda way, not a fruity, spicy kinda way. Definitely not worth the price, I think I paid $10/6pk.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

drjay44 (3337) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours an enormously thick, gradually collapsing, ivory head, with slight lacing, over a clear amber copper (SRM 16) body.....nose is mild toffee/caramel, light ginger, herbal notes, balanced......taste is slightly sweet with mild toffee/caramel notes, becoming dry, with herbal hops, light spices including ginger, finishing with mild pepper, and soft lingering bitterness......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, high carbonation with moderate acid. Although an interesting beer to drink, this is a bit muddled in the aromas and flavors, and the ginger ale like aromas and flavors are a bit off putting. Also, while the Belgian yeast put in some of the spice, there were many other characteristics missing. I do wonder if the bottle has been corectly stored. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Hopmaestro (1194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2016
Aroma is malty with brown sugars and spicey yeast. Taste is caramelly malts, toffee like sweetness, spice from the yeast and a herbal cloak. However, there’s something in the end that doesn’t really tie this one together? I can’t really say what it is, but the aftertaste is somewhat unpolished or rough? Is it the darker malts that mess this one up? Drinkable, but nothing I’d do backflips for to try again.

SvanteL (241) - SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2016
Kopparfärgad med medelstort, beiget skum som lägger sig snabbt. I doften finns örter, gräs, jäst och en lite dov fruktighet. Smaken är ganska maltig och ovanpå det kommer örterna, en liten kryddighet, fruktigheten, jästigheten och en fin avslutande beska. En riktigt smakrik farmhouse ale.
