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

Bottle. Hazy golden appearance - good head. Yeast and citrus aroma. Medium bitterness - slight sourness to the taste. Drinkable but not wowing me

ciocanelu (2603) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 7, 2017
Slightly hazy bright yellow color with white head. Aroma has some sweet and spicy yeast notes with herbal hops. Taste follows spicy and herbal with an earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s pretty nice but a bit too yeasty.

Lubię takie saisony. W zapachu dziko, sprawia wrażenie kwaśnego. Są lekkie cytrusy, cytryna i pomarańcz. Rześko. W smaku sporo inaczej. Zastrzegam, że piwo piłem już trochę dojrzałe i chmielowość mogła się zredukować. Główne skrzypce grają zdecydowanie dzikie drożdże. Jest wytrawnie. Goryczka dość wysoka. Przyprawowe, skórzane, owocowe. Gorzkie dzikie pomarańcze. Leciutko miodowa nuta. Złożone piwo, dzikość saisona z delikatnym posmakiem cytrusów i solidną goryczką. Pasuje mi.

vinivini (2582) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle 33cl. Cloudy honey yellow. Small white head. Stays as as a thin layer on beer surface. Aroma: ripe sourish fruit, white bread, spicy yeast, spicy hops. Pepper, dill. Really different. Dry taste. Restrained maltiness. Yeast and hops leading. Spicy. Lightly grassy. Light to medium bitterness. Interesting and very enjoyable.

jjsint (3216) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2017
Bottle from the Architect, Cambridge. Light yellow, hazy, well-carbonated. A nice combination of spicy saison yeast and more sour yeasty notes. Taste is bready and spicy, with coriander notes. Incredibly short finish. The carbonation dominates the mouthfeel. It’s a lovely beer in a way, but it lacks the intensity of so many of Wild Beer’s best efforts. Refreshing more than engaging.
