hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle... Pours murky and golden with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is restrained, but I’m finally picking up some tropical and citrus fruits. Medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor is citrusy and bitter - no citric acid here; just hops providing citrus zest-like aspects. Mild fruity sweetness and moderate dryness in the finish. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz! JBPortland (1543) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2016

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy bright orange. Big white head. Very tropical aroma. Tropical hops and brett. Tastes equally tropical. Brett cuts the sweet aspect with leaves a little bitterness and a dry finish. Medium light body. High carbonation. I like that this isn’t very bitter, Brett complements the tropical flavors nicely. jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Smapled at GABF 2014. Pours a hazy orange body with thick creamy white lacing. Aroma is fresh hop - pretty mild nose overall. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of bright prickly citric hops, fruit, pineapple and a faint tropical character. Very nice.

Bottle: Slightly cloudy, golden colored body with a soapy & frothy white head; nice staying power. Aroma full of Brett musk & musty basement floor, wet hay, ripe honeydew, pineapple skin, flowers, & hints of white pepper spiciness in the back-end. A lot fruitier up front, with a big mix of melon, pineapple, & pear. Borderline juicy in flavor, but really it has a bone dry body like you’d expect from a highly attenuated saison. Hay, must, funky Brett, & some barnyard stall notes open up with warmth, leading into a lightly spicy & semi-floral finish. Nice, all around.

Clear pale golden body has just a slight touch of chill haze. White head atop shows strong retention.
Lovely tropical fruit producing hops in the nose show no signs of that nasty pine and very little citrus, for that matter. Pineapple and kiwi, with a touch of minerals, clean yeast and just a hint of band-aid formed brett acids. It’s outrageously aromatic, fresh, juicy and wonderfully attenuated.
Soft, almost creamy mouthfeel supports the very light brett acids that are augmented by delicious, bright, lively and light hoppiness that has a few spicy notes and then full-on mango-pineapple. Malt is perfectly dry, but not astringent or over attenuated. Little hints of pils malt sweetness and just a quenching and yet thirst-inducing drinkability. Wow. Glad I stopped by here. Will certainly be trying more from these guys. Outstanding.

>> Pours clear straw with weaker foam. Nose is dank tropical hops, catty, gooseberry, somewhat phenolic weird yeast. Taste is dry, catty, sharp hop bite. Solid overall.
