The latest side project from Terrapin, released October 2013. 4th in the Dr. Krunkles line

A - Yellow golden, with 1 finger of head, cloudy, and leaves sticky lace all over the glass

S - Funky yeast, sweet, pepper, spices. Smells great

T - White pepper is dominant, saison and funk is awesome. Malty goodness. Great, and unique combination

M - Full carbonation, sizzles on the tongue

O - Great brew. Original. It gets better with every sip, and by the time you are almost out, you are craving more. Well done!

Pours into a large tulip glass an orange tinge lighter golden with a large blooming white head that leaves one full ring of lace as it settles oh so slowly into a frothy mass.Citrusy hops really jump out at ya in the nose then some funk and spice follows.Citric and leafy hops on the palate followed by some medicinal and spiced notes,there is a sourness in the finish that really lingers.I love the hops but don't love the phenols and sour-funk that comes into play,just not my style,it's a quality beer.

Bomber bottle, w/o freshness info that I can find.

Pours lighly hazed dull tangarine, under an oversized off white head thats loose and lasting. Leaving a large and high collar/sheeting and tongues of thicker lace.

Grapefruit all over the nose.

Tart and biting grapefruit on the palate carrying the freight here. Seems more then slightly over carbonated, which had me almost drain pouring it, thinking it had gone bad/infected. After letting it calm down a bit in the bottle, later pours were more agreable.

Citric, hoppy, abrasive, but ultimatly astrigent and at least fairly drinkable and mostly pretty good in a strange over the top sort of way....This will not be for everybody, but if ya like a close to over carbonated and biting grapefruit bomb of a beer, this one is for you...

22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color. A nice, durable white head leaves beautiful lacing behind.

S: Fruity, with citrus, pineapple, peach and apricot notes. There is also an obvious Belgian yeast component and a moderate, most peppery, spiciness.

T: Quite spicy at first, with contributions from the yeast and hops, but this fades nicely into a fruity-yeasty-bready mix. Sweet, tart and bitter in roughly equal measure.

Feel: Medium-high carbonation is moderately soft. Medium body; dry finish.

O: A successful and nteresting combination of styles. Well-balanced in that a farmhouse ale and an IPA vie for prominence but neither wins out. French farmhouse, Belgian wit and IPA in nearly equal degree. A tasty brew that changes a bit with warming.

On tap at Coffee District. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange. Huge white head. Thick collar. Wispy surface.

Smell - Some citrus hops. Phenolic yeast notes. Lots of pale malt.

Taste - Citrus hops. Quickly overpowered by pale malt sweetness. Very phenolic in the back end. Mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Gets heavy. A little too sweet. Highly carbonated.

Overall - The phenols keep it mildly interesting. Otherwise too sweet and not hoppy enough.

The color appeared to be a light golden pear that set under a bright frothy, thick and sudsy head.

Quite complex in the nose I get honey, banana, spicy black pepper, honeysuckle flower, a herbal hop and a bit of perfume.

The flavor is very strong on the honeysuckle flower, with a caramel and toffee malt backbone. The hops are herbal but sweet and it finishes with the perfume like flavor.

The feel is light, fizzy and prickly but not so bad as to be abrasive.

An enjoyable beer with good variance and a light countenance.

Bottle: Poured a yellow color ale with some hazy white hue and a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coriander and wheat malt with some light citrusy hops is quite pleasant. Taste is also a well balanced mix between some coriander and other spices with light fruity ester with some light dry citrus hops and light sweet rustic malt which may contain some wheat. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. This beer is not necessarily earth shattering but well enjoyable with good drinkability.

A: poyrs a hazy orange with a finger of white head that fades into a thin cap with little lacing.

S: Belgian spice notes with some funky barnyard aromas followed by grassy hops. There are some musty oak notes toward the finish.

T: Belgian spices, candy sugar, and some barnyard flavors up front. Grassy and herbal hop flavors follow with some musty oak notes.

M: light body with mid-low carbonation, this beer is nice and drinkable.

O: an enjoyable beer overall. It's a nice mix of funky barnyard saison and hops.
