3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Semi-clear golden body, medium head. Aroma has perfumey brett and hops - resembling Orval: not as funky but has more aromatic hops. Sweet and perfumey taste with yeast, dry citric hops and something milky. Good one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a small off-white head that lasts as a ring. Nice aroma of citrusy hops, bready malts and yeasty funk, grass, straw, and just a little bit of spice. The flavor has the same slate of notes but doesn’t quite stand up. Medium-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Not much in the way of bitterness, just very mellow throughout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16.9oz bottle, shared with phaleslu and others. Labeled "farmhouse IPA". Almost entirely hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some decent bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, soft, kind of lighter carbonation. Pretty dry finish. Citrusy hop, a lot of belgian yeast. Light spice. Moderate sweet taste. Light to moderate bitter. Alright farmhouse. Doesn’t really stand out to me, just so so. A lot of that musty belgian character that I often get from this style that does’t do much for me. Not much in the way of hoppy aromatic.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sounded very promising, but for me a bit out of balance. The alcohol, allthough only 7% is a bit too strong, and the bitterness could be a bit more balanced with a nice malty touch, maybe some more wheat.. The hops are clearly on the backgroudn as bittering, and the aroma’s of the hops are a bit pushed away by the brett. Very nice brew, but my expectations for TO Ol are always very high! :)
