COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

dantheman278 (1361) - - JAN 22, 2013
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!

Joakgust (1075) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2015
Bottle. Semi hazy golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, wheat, herbs, hay and grass. Flavor is spicy with notes of grain, bread, spices, citrus and yeast. Well balanced but nothing exciting.

Buona birra, onesta ed in linea con il genere. Frutta dolce, leggera acidità, zesty and crispy. Rinfrescante e pulita, taglia bene con il finale amaro. Buona
