Sampler at the brewpub (Holland, MI). Missed this last time in town. Pours a crisp clean golden yellow, a decent whitish head that dies to a smaller film, clinging to the edges. Good lacing. Aromas are a bit fruity, some light esters and some citrus mix with bready malts, pretty light overall. Initial is medium bodied with a pretty big dose of Belgian yeast, apples and pears right off the bat moving into bread and a telltale Belgian yeasty spice. Vanilla, a touch of clove, orange peel and light florals provide a light bitterness. Sweet up front with lingering fruits, a touch of sweetness. Pretty fruity, restrained bitterness. Quite flavorful, not overly sweet as expected. Dry, a touch of honey, fruity esters, more orange and floral slanted hoppiness. Not bad

Bottle; Pour is murky golden with an overly carbonated, pillow top off white head that retains on the average side, I suppose into this tulip. Sticky cobwebs are present as lacing as well.The nose is lemons and grassy h ops, a touch of tropical fruits, and there is an earthy quality present here as well. The flavor profile shares those qualities, yet it is also bitter initially, and it finishes quite dry on the tongue. Almost annoyingly so - Anyway - this wasn’t bad by any means

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, Belgian yeast, lots of spice, coriander, light peach, citrus, grain, and nectar. Poured amber/orange/gold in color with a medium-sized, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of grains, hops, spice, pepper, light citrus, light fruit, yeast, and some herbs. Light to medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Lightly sweet, medium bitter, hop, Belgian yeast, light fruit, pepper finish is dry.

lamas (1655) - Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle from 2012 courtesy of agl108. A murky rust pour with tons of chunky floaties and a massive meringue-like head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. The aroma is funky and sour, almost to the point that I suspect it may be infected. Kumquats, zesty citrus rinds, lemon juice, wheat, and yeast feature in the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel and a sweet cereal graininess upfront taste-wise. Some juicy citrus flavors and zesty rinds at the bitter/dry end. Yeasty. Mineral water-like. Meh.

I was born in Western Michigan, so I really want to like the brews from New Holland. Unfortunately, most of the beers are very middling. This bours a barely hazy brown shade of amber with white head. Scent is almost nonexistent. Taste is a nondescript bland bitter. Palate is decent, but that cannot be any beers saving grace. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Tap: Hazy copper-ish, amber-ish body with a dark beige head, frothy & foamy atop the brew. Aroma contains light citric, leafy hops, mild hay & farm funk notes with a touch of damp cotton. Slightly grassy, lemon zest in the finish. Taste is very similar with more sharp orange, citrus, & pineapple zest out of the gate. Farmhouse character comes through with faint cotton & hay funk, slightly musty & damp. A touch of tartness near the finish, but far from sour. More grassy & leafy hops in the aftertaste. Like a mild, hopped up saison. Not bad.

On tap at the brewpub. Deep yellow with a white head and some lacing. Yeasty and spicey taste, some sourness. Yeasty aroma. Average mouthfeel. Drying. Fine for style, although I was not a big fan of it.

If nothing else, NH definitely got the name for this beer correct. It’s definitely a "Farmhouse IPA". Problem is, it’s not all that farmy, and, much like Mad Hatter, the IPA base isn’t all that good. Super carbonated and looks lovely in the glass. Bitter with a touch of tart. Lots of citrus and pine. Thin - I wish this beer was much bigger. Boozy smell is not great.
