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.

Kavu (5133) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2017
0,2l on tap @ Angleterre. Pours cloudy yellow with a low head. Aroma is slightly fruity malts. Flavor is thin watery malts with some tart notes and some hops. Bleh. Perhaps not in the best form any more?

Cokemonkey11 (1094) - - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle at Zizi. Medium saison with a lovely foam head subsiding. Scent is quite light saison. Taste is surprisingly alpha medium hopped around 40 IBU. Actually quite a straightforward IPA in taste. Yes a bit peppery. Good.

3.3
blueruin (191) - - OCT 22, 2017
Deep yellow with minimal head. Yeast and almost lager-y aroma. Taste is dry, with orange, some herbal notes and caramel. A bit too much of the sorachi ace coming through, and a fairly short, bitter finish. Medium palate, a little bit oily. Very little saison funk. Not what I was expecting - drinkable but not great.

On tap, craft beer gallery. Golden colour, white head. Aroma is mostly yeasty, barnyardy, funky. Some fruity sour notes. Wine. Very promissing. Taste is yeasty, a bit funky, dry, well atenuated. Not so complex as Aroma. Some grainy malty notes. Easy drinkable. Good one.
