A: pours a dense gold with a massive 2-3 fingers worth of head formation that settles down into a monstrous fluffy head that is about 1 fingers worth thick.
S: right off the bat, I notice just how well balanced this brew is and its high end complexity. lemon zest, banana, musty attic funk, wet wood, peppery spice, and some sharp floral aroma that I can't seem to pinpoint
T: nowhere near as complex as the nose. big funkiness is the dominate player and it lasts all the way through to the the finish. big pepper and spices in the middle of the body that is held together by a sweet malt note. there is a slight touch of fruit here, but its note much
M: medium bodied, acidic, crisp, bitter, an extremely dry finish. the palate is left with overwhelming funk note.
O: this one let me down. thought the appearance and the smell was terrific, but it completely misses the mark in my book on the mouthfeel.

Pours half finger of head on a clear light golden colored body.
The aroma is smokey applesauce, soap, lemon and pear all mixed up in a nice way.
The taste is sharp, approaching bitter. Retains bright fruit: apple and pear.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation.
Pleasant and enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

The first pour was nearly clear yellow with a big pillowy head. The last pour was opaque, swimming with yeast.
A pleasant fruitiness dominates the nose. Apple and pear, rich malt, slight vinegar-brett-funk.
Rich complex malts in taste, hints of citrus, ripe juicy pear, brett-funk and concrete dryness.
Extraordinary carbonation, better than champagne. Juicy, with a very long dry finish.
Excellent farmhouse ale from Tomme and the Abbey.
