COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Epic by name, epic by nature, this Farmhouse Ale is a transcontinental fusion of Belgiumís 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.

Craft Clerkenwell. Also a bottle on the 14th December. Hazy gold beer, good white head. Nice nose of floral vanilla oak. Palate is crisp and light. Sharp minerals. Slightly tart citrus, grapefruit and a little apricot. Light vanilla oak in good balance, but is this beer BA? Must be the Sorachi providing that cream then. Smooth finish. Intriguing and tasty and easily the best Iíve tried from this new brewery.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl - West. Pours light gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Sort of a barnyard/yeast combo aroma. Not strong tho. Itís quite hoppy, sturdily barnyard, and very yeasty. Tho the barnyard and yeast are rather similar here. Itís putting some sort of burn on the top of my tongue. Hop would be sides I think, so .... Itís a hoppier than usual saison. Itís a pretty good drink. Could be a bit smoother.

Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle at The White Horse Old Ale Festival, London, courtesy of the Wild Beer guys. Pours cloudy yellow with a soft, white foam head. Lots of dry yeast character, although I did get the end of the bottle. There are notes of lemon and bubblegu, in here. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry and fairly yeasty to finish, with some dough, gum and subtle fruits. Very nice.
