COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

ClubGonzo (4237) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a small white head. Nose is perhaps one of the most intensely "Belgian" aromatic profiles I’ve ever smelled; dense sugary-sweet bubble gum tones, clove, banana, wine gum and red berries all tangled into one, with some dry hay and straw-ish pale malts and tropical fruits in the back. Taste is banana, white bubble gum, sugar, passion fruit, mild pineapple and hints of dry grass and hay. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Very, very, very "Belgian" and quite nice in its own peculiar way, though nothing outstanding.

_angst_ (3058) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
Draught sample @ Monks American Bar courtesy if the staff. Thank you! Pours pale golden with a frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace while dissipating. Smell is heavy phenolic with crackers, biscuits, baked pears, lemon hard candy, buttered bread, hay and dry soil. Taste is tiny sweet and phenolic with buttered white bread, plums, baked pears, apple skins, pepper corns, dry soil, grapefruit rinds and hay. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, slightly round, soft and light to medium bodied. Finish is phenolic with buttered white bread, pears, apples, orange zest, dry soil, pepper corns and hay, too phenolic and too buttery I’m afraid,

Christian (11280) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Fruity aroma with spicy and herbal notes. Dry and refreshing with both authentic spicy-yeasty Belgian character and a little American extra spark

daje (2609) - NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
On tap at Schouskjelleren, march 29th 2014. Light hazy golden body, thick white head. Weak spicy aroma with banana and citrus, sweet malty taste with notes of spicy farmhouse yeast and citrus fruit. Low bitterness and a short dry aftertaste. Doesn’t taste bad but still falls a bit short.

mzaar (1747) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2014
Flaska från Prövestenens Vinhandel, Helsingör. Hälls upp lätt grumligt orange, med stort äggvitevispat skum. I doften hittas frisk citron, örter och fläder. Detsamma i smaken plus apelsinskal och peppar. Jordig och torr munkänsla. En trevlig saison.

Straw yellow. Spicy and fruity aroma. Clove, honey, banana on the taste. Flavor dissipates quickly though. Light nice drink but not special either

Bue en bouteille. On note rapidement l'acidité et les épices (poivre). Finale assez persistante. Rafraîchissante.
