Brewed predominantly with organic 2- row, the malt bill is rounded out with organic light munich, organic 60L crystal and caravienna. Northwest Golding and Hallertauer hops provide a pleasant hop character. Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

3fourths (8984) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2012
medium caramel amber body, lightly hazed.
lightly acetic nose; medium oak; dried cherry / cranberry esters.
brett plastic / band-aid.
medium-high acid; medium-low bitterness.
toasty / crunchy malt, but well-suited firm.
the acid seems to bury the huskiness apparent in the Avant Flandre.
minimal hop character.
quite good, balanced, subdued, measured.

Bottle. Copper color with a thin ring of beige head. Nose is hops, brett, oak, and a little fruity. Smells like itís going to be acidic... Sour and light bitter taste, a little funky fruit. Somewhat acidic, but less than the aroma would suggest. More hops than fruit, oak barrel, and sour.

An old bottle bought in Portland 2 years ago - way past prime - Appypolly loggy. Aroma is the tops for me as I can smell all the flavors that are still there without some of the accompanying flavors. The color is a sunset orange (sorry I just saw Star Wars IV-VII and the images are all) with a good retention head with lacey-ness of joy. Sour prevails with a sweet Thereís a bittering lingering that is probably the results of aging. Overall lovely, and sorry I didnít taste you sooner... Until next time > Cheers & beers!

Soft and pale golden hue with one finger of off white head. Nose is nice. Muted with soft fruits, a light acidity, fruit skins, and a touch of bread. Light and easy in the mouth. Light light grainy notes with some popcorn as I breath out. Light fruit and a little woody. Touch of tartness.

Amberkleurig bier. Zoetig Ė zurige en fruitige neus. Hetzelfde zoetig Ė zurige vind men terug in de smaak, alleen spijtig dat er een muffe smaak bij komt kijken. Ze mogen hun kusje houden.

Could swear I rated this. Anyway, a stand out from a pretty mediocre sampling of beers on a trip to the northwest. Rudy orange. Nose of pineapple and some light piney hops. Taste follows with full mouthfeel. Delicious.

Bottle. Aroma is moderate musty brett with sour lemon candy, wood, and light yogurt. Tastes like dry leather, wood, lemons, light pineapple, and crackers. Mild sourness. High fizzy carbonation. Solid brett ale.

theisti (3734) - Kansas, USA - NOV 12, 2015
750ml bottle purchased at Imperial Bottle Shop and Taproom in Portland, Oregon. Shared with csbosox and beastiefan2k. The pour is a murky golden copper with a 1/2 inch off white head. The aroma is tart citrus, lemon acidic, tangerine and some general funk towards the back. The taste is the bright tart lemon fruit up front, followed by the acidity and then moves into dry funk leather earthy Brett notes. Nice transition of flavors. The palate is medium bodied with active fine carbonation and the dry Brett finish. Thins out some in the finish and gets bone almost chalky dry. Nice easy drinking beer.

Flemish Kiss 6.5% Served in a tulip it pours a bright brassy orange-gold with a thick foamy head of light-beige foam. Itís paler than expected from a Flemish red but has that wonderful tart/sour fruity & vinous character with light spice notes. It has an active carbonation with all bubbles and bright sparkling carbonation. The taste is light, acidic, vivid tart fruit - bright berries & light malt bready notes. This beer brings some of the wow character that the Urban Farmhouse didnít.
