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.

330ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a good white head and lacing throughout. Incredible aroma, tropical fruits, citrus and a touch of malt. Flavours of mango and papaya give way to citrus, intense hops and a little spice. Ends with very late bitter finish that lasts. Smooth, with moderate carbonation. Surprisingly complex and delicious.

garthicus (2664) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2013
Appearance: glorious neon orange, cloudy with a phenomenal 3 finger virginal white head. Aroma: oh wow. What an aroma, mango hop, so fruity & hoppy. Like peeling a ripe mango. A little spicy too. Gorgeous. Flavour: Wow, big juicy mouthfeel, has that familiar ’farmhouse’ flavour with a heap of citrus and mango hops thrown in. Lemon peel, lots of spices, coriander, yeasty, so wonderfully hopped. Tremendous.

On tap at CBC, London. It pours a clear golden colour with a nice soapy white head. Nose is yeasty and spicy. Taste is yeast, spices, farmhouse, dust and lactose. Some orange peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nicely balanced and very refreshing.

Bottle. A gusher when the bottle was opened but a quite flat beer appears after all the fucking cleaning up. A bad start for this beer but my mood soon lifts after one sniff - soap (not bad though), lemon and spice. Flavour has much the same as the aroma with a hint of the saison funk and a pithy orange finish. Very good.

I picked this up at Jacks, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon Saturday 3rd August 2013 consumed at home Wednesday 21st August 2013 Gold with large creamy frothy white head, fairly clear, head sticking on way down. Soft in the mouth, really good interpretation of a saison, dry, touch spicy, good bittersweet bite, but goes drier and bitterer, bloody good, its lemony, fruity, tasty. Marvellous.
