Epic by name, epic by nature, this Farmhouse Ale is a transcontinental fusion of Belgium’s eclectic beer culture and the feisty hops of North America brought to life with the aid of West Country artisanal brewing wizardry and judicious use of the US-grown Sorachi Ace hop. On the nose, the hops deliver a big splash of tropical fruit, followed by ripples of well-seasoned spiciness spreading outwards. In the mouth a tangy, bittersweet fruitiness holds sway, while tangerine oranges tap dance their way across the tongue in the finish.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear orange with a big, fluffy pillowy head. Bright tropical fruits on the nose, something waxy, some booze and a definite hint of spicy, soapy Sorachi funk. Surprisingly bitter, really quite tangy. Orange pith, white pepper. Just a hint of soft malt, the farmhouse thing doesn’t really appear until it opens up but that’s ok. Waxy lemon rind bitterness on the finish. Soft, creamy carbonation, really spot-on actually. Really quite unique - I wasn’t convinced to begin with, but it’s a good ’un!

Bottle. Murky yellow body, medium head. Yeasty aroma with some hoppiness. Simple yeasty taste mith medium hoppiness. Not much funk. Yeasty finish, probably too yeasty. Very tame and quite simply a bit boring.

kidmartinek (3560) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bright, full cloudy yellow. Adequate bubbling holds a white head. Aroma of sweet grass, dank, and wet concrete. Light mineral on the palate with a bland bitter fruity sweetness. Airy and bubbly finish. Pretty good refreshing beer for a Texas Summer.

Golden color. Not much of a smell. Starts off sweet, ends with a little bit of a spice like taste. A little bit of a lasting spicy/hoppy aftertaste.
