Bottle from Hop City in Atlanta. Poured into a pint glass (no snifter chalice at my Marriott.) Bottle about exploded when I opened it! Love it! Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a thick white head. Most head lasts and some decent lacing. Aroma is both fruity (bananas?) and funk. I think one of the yeast strains is making it almost have a banana aroma. The taste is more like a saison style funk bag versus a traditional Belgian ale. Bread, cereal, funky yeasts, and a little fruit with a hoppy finish. Very tingling on the palette. VERY DRY!
33ml Bottle at a bar.
Didn’t see the age of the batch though.
Just starting to discover and enjoy this classic masterpiece. ciocanelu (2458) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 23, 2017
1 year old bottle. Hazy orange color with creamy beige head with very good persistence. Aroma has really nice floral notes, hay and some light barnyard funk. Taste follows, really floral with nice yeast notes but it doesn’t get cloying at all, really easy drinking and somehow fresh in spite of the medium body. Smooth mouthfeel, no alcohol. Finishes with a good amount of earthy bitterness. Overall it’s a really well made and somehow unique beer which deserves its praise. IHC (10) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 20, 2017

Bottle. Dark golden to copper, little bit hazy with huge, frothy, white and very solid head and good lacing. Medium aromas of dried frutis with significant farmhouse notes. Very dry but not watery, little bit sour with light bitterness in the finish. Extremely drinkable!

330ml Bottle: Pours a clear light copper with large frothy white head. Fruity aroma with a slightly sour note. Flavours of caramel, sour cherry and breadcrust. Medium to high bitterness, high carbonation and medium bodied. Overall an amazing beer. Crisp and clean with an incredible complexity. NiklasT (32) - SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2017
Apperance brown/red, slightly hazy. Aroma has some yeastines and caramel without much sweetness. Taste similar balance. Dry end, spicy and more bitterness than most belgian beers. Nothing else quite like this. Well done! SloaneRanger (16) - - JUN 11, 2017
Kuparin värinen lasissa. Tuoksussa appelsiinin kuorta, vähän ruohoa ja belgialaista hiivaa. Maku on hieman greippinen ja yrttinen. Lopussa katkeruutta, mutta ei liikaa, vaan maku on tasapainoinen. Omassa lajissaan maistuva olut, tulee mieleen kesä ja ruohon leikkaaminen. NORSAND (102) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2017

Lovely copper towards light bronze colour. Big, white head.
Duft: Perfumed fruitiness, lemon, soapy, lavender. Funky notes of leather, old hay barn and dried hay. Pine tree hoppiness. With air the funk and the pine tree hoppiness become more pronounced and rather dominant.
Very rich carbonation, quite soft, medium juiciness, fruity, funky, medium bitterness, between dry and slightly off-dry. Medium long, hoppy aftertaste.
Interesting beer, different, developing in the glass.
