This one exploded out of the bottle, beer everywhere, lost about 1/3 of the bomber. Hazy golden color, starch-white very sizable head, good lacing. Smells like ripe bananas in a funky pine forest where sourdough is proofing. Earthy mineral taste, more pine resin, sweet orange rind and oil - lots going on. There's a farmhouse-ale mustiness to the whole thing that's quite fantastic; a bitterness that reminds me of chewing Tylenol. No noticeable alcohol flavor. Too much carbonation for me.

pours a dark gold. smells very sweet. taste is bitter. very little head upon a vigorous pour.
sweet malty aroma, sweet malty flavor. some hop bitterness.... decent brew.... but, this is NOT a bitter beer. 127 ibu? I don't think so. what' up with my tastebuds? sweet, caramel-like flavor. 4.0 across the board as far as i'm concerned. decent, but not extraordinary, but then, I DID a Pliny right before this....
