Another new Hatter from New Holland. This one was on tap at The Bridge. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small, creamy off-white head that leaves a smooth sheet of lace on the walls of the glass and top of the beer. Aroma of mild farmhouse funk, lemon, citrusy hops, sweet malts, and some soft, grainy, bready notes. Flavor follows along the same lines, with funk, citrus, and plenty of bread, along with some grassy bitterness. Medium-bodied, with mellow, soft carbonation and an earthy, bready mouthfeel. Dry finish. Pretty nice Belgian-style IPA, or whatever they want to call it. This worked for me. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2012

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy orange copper with a modest beige head and a fruity barnyard aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with an earthy bitter finish. Nicely balanced and quite tasty. gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle bought at Whole Foods Market - P Street (Washington DC) in October 2011.
Amber with a medium, quite creamy head. The aroma was ok with lemon, some yeast, hops and perfume. The taste was not as good, the beer felt a bit old. Still drinkable.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Possibly the best beer ever brewed by New Holland- either intentionally or unintentionally Brett infected with great dryness and complexity.

Pours significantly better than the other beers on tap today with a massive, rocky beige head that leaves full sheets of lace. Nose is sugary peach, fresh tangerine, and a good wallop of fresh spearmint. Floral Brett and sweaty funk come through in the nose. Taste is very dry and extremely effervescent with sharp cedar and mild acid. Full doughy malt and biscuit comes in the background for malt backbone. Excellent stuff. Sort of like an Orval clone.
22oz bottle, 2012 vintage. Clear amber color, thin white head. Nice lighter but soft carbonation, classic farmhouse texture. Light tart and mildy zesty flavor, light bitter. Light citrus peel. Nice spicy hop aroma, just a little funk, not over the top, and easy to drink and nice to enjoy with my Subway. arminjewell (9721) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Pours hazy dark orange with big fluffy white head, very carbonated. Aroma has notes of nice pine, grass, resin, some nice fruity esters, spice, slight barnyard funk. Taste is nice and carbed but still smooth on the palate, with notes of pine and grass, slight fruity pear, lots of spice and funky notes, finishing very dry and pretty bitter. Tasty! b3shine (9255) - Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bomber to pint. Looks okay, but doesn’t smell like an IPA. Overly doughy and Belgiany. Tastes the same way; the flavors fight each other. Mouthfeel is average (at best). Not again. drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2011
6/13/11. 22oz bottle. Clear orange pour with a small tan head. Spicy, estery, yeasty aroma with a touch of hops. Spicy yeast dominates the flavor with lingering floral hops. Nice! drfabulous (8802) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Pours orange in color. Malty ale with some fruity esters. Not a strong yeast finish or taste.
