COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Epic by name, epic by nature, this Farmhouse Ale is a transcontinental fusion of Belgiums 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.

dantheman278 (1361) - - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a clear orange with a big, fluffy pillowy head. Bright tropical fruits on the nose, something waxy, some booze and a definite hint of spicy, soapy Sorachi funk. Surprisingly bitter, really quite tangy. Orange pith, white pepper. Just a hint of soft malt, the farmhouse thing doesnt really appear until it opens up but thats ok. Waxy lemon rind bitterness on the finish. Soft, creamy carbonation, really spot-on actually. Really quite unique - I wasnt convinced to begin with, but its a good un!

Served in a tulip from a 330ml bottle. Pours hazy lemon-gold colour with a thick white head, some lacing. Aroma is grains, lemon, spices, bergamot. Taste is cucumber, lemon, orange, slightly nutty and spicy. Thin and slick body with medium carbonation. Very complex, unusual and interesting brew.

BeerNinjaUK (401) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle from beer subscription box. Pours cloudy golden with thin foamy head. Fruity aroma with sweet stone fruit and citrus - rather duty too. Soft taste with refreshing finish. Unfiltered, very hazy gold color somewhat peach with small white foam. Aromas of, fruits like peach and citrus. Also smells of straw, dust and malt with light hop touch at the end. Palate, medium texture and light body, with small carbonation and nice long hoppy/citrusy finish. Taste, is quite sweet and simple. Tastes softly of lemons and hops. Overall, very nice saison beer, nice simple and refreshing, beautiful color and aromas all that you need for simple nice saison.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 RERATE 15/20 14/20 Easy to drink saison with a hint of orange. But like a blue moon without the pulp. Decent 16/20 Second bottle thought was fantastic and would give 16/20 so split the difference. Full of flavour, interesting and easy to drink ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (5221) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2016
Fra fat p Cirkus, Stavanger (Wild Beer krankupp) aug-16: gylden med fint skum. Behagelig men litt beskjeden duft av hy, krydder, gjr/brett og frukt. Frisk og funky sma med citrus, malt, dill og gjr. Halvtrr og samtidig ganske myk. Fin bitterhet gjorde at glasset fort ble tomt.

Bottled 330ml (AbM)
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Light spicey, Sorachi Ace dill aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Tropical fruityness underlying but flavor is dominated by spicey, grapefruity dill flavors. Interesting use of Sorachi Ace.
