3.42/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows lots of funky yeast notes with a little malt underneath. Little else. Some banana.
More funk as a flavours along with some booze. Some piny hops and an assertive bitterness.
Carbonation seems a little high.

cloudy golden.
Smell of floral hops, some pine and resin
Taste of resin, pine oranges and yeast.

Not really a good combo in my mind, to much saison with to much IPA.

On-tap. Oversized snifter glass. Brass color, chill haze appearance. Off-white froth creates a close, thin layer on top. Citric, moderate toasted malt & herbal aromas. Tartar touch over malty flavor at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture & dried mouthfeel. Citric, herbs & spices in the middle provide soft astringent notes. Long bitter finish & hoppy aftertaste.

Straight pour from a pry-off 1pt. 0.9oz/500ml bottle to a short, stubby tulip; no bottling or freshness dating visible. Not sure how fresh it might be, but it is a Brett beer so let’s see where it’s at, regardless.

Appearance (4.0): Two solid fingers of custard-colored foam rise off of the pour, capping a hazy, orange-amber colored body, dying down at a slower than average pace and leaving a thin film on the surface and a wide, lacy collar around the edge. As the beer recedes, it leaves a wide, unbroken collar on the backside of the glass, and a few scattered suds on the near side.

Smell (3.0): Moderate caramel, light toasted bread, and candied orange peel more or less make up the aroma from the start. There’s some light lemon aroma, some floral tone, hay, and a little silage hang out around the edges, but the aroma’s still dominated by mildly oxidized malt and muted hops. I like the potential and the depth here, but it’s an old-ish IPA that didn’t gain anything with age.

Taste (3.75): The aroma didn’t lie, but there’s still a lot more going on here. Lightly oxidized malt showing a bit of caramel, stale multigrain bread, light toast and some nutty toffee lay a solid base, but it’s quickly overshadowed by remnant bittering hops and some real weird, brett funk (but it’s good funk). Bitter orange zest, a bit of sharp cheese rind, a strong grassy tang, and yellow grapefruit flesh take over the flavor profile quickly, moving toward a floral dimension on the back end. The finish hangs on for a bit, and just a low level of alcohol warmth rises after the fact.

Mouthfeel (4.5): Fine carbonation ushers in a drying, moderately oily body that’s medium weight and zesty, tingling all over before washing out. The fine but assertive carbonation accentuates the dryness of the hop bitterness and brett phenols, making the flavor more dynamic.

Overall (3.75): I feel like this is a beer that’s much better fresh. It hasn’t become a bad beer by any stretch, and in fact it’s still really enjoyable, but it’s clear that what it is now just doesn’t match its potential. It strikes me as a strongly hoppy IPA brewed with a mix of sacch and brett, rather than a hoppy brett beer that’s designed to integrate the hop character and brett into one big, dynamic flavor profile. Still, it’s a good beer, and I’d love to try it fresh.

Fantastic beer. Well blends a Season and IPA. Citrus/Pine smell. Earthy taste.

500ml. Label describes it as a "farmhouse india pale ale" with 7.4% ABV listed.

The pour is darkish orange with light haze and slow-moving carbonation bubbles. Voluptuous off-white head falls to a solid cap leaving bits of lace behind.

Scent is pretty hop-forward with grapefruit, pineapple and kiwi coming to mind. Earthiness and some bretty yeast come out more with warmth.

Taste ups the ante just a bit, hops remind me of Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin - pineapple, citrus fruits, earthy. Barnyard yeasts, bretty notes, spice, grass, light caramel sweetness.

High carbonation but fitting for the style. Light tartness+funk make this one somewhat of a sipper but otherwise pretty easy-drinking.

This reminds me very much of a toned down version of Anchorage Galaxy White IPA, which is good because that beer was a little over the top for me. Good stuff, looking forward to exploring more from this brewery.

Served on tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Listed as a saison (listed here as a Belgian IPA).
Almost clear but not matte-brown gold. Spicy lightly funky tart. A minerally intoxicating sort of scent. The taste is pleasant, fruity-pungent, and lightly tart. The mouthfeel is light and vaguely prickly. An enjoyable saison.

Bottle cap numbering: 11801307

Apricot colored body, faintly hazy; sticky, foamy head. Sweet, malty aroma with a ripe, pungent fruit; caramel; low-key spiciness. Sweet breads with a softly charred sugar flavor; old oranges; strong bitterness. Medium bodied, leaning towards the heavy side of things; chewy; dry finish.

A nice, boozy-edged IPA that deftly balances malt sweetness and a heavy hop bitterness. The hops and ABV make for a rather dry, phenolic-edged beer, yet it also provides some nice, malt grain sweetness to the whole picture, too. This has a kind of saison/farmhouse quality to it but definitely leans more so to a malt-forward pale ale beer. A nice change of pace from American styled IPAs.

a very subtle beer for these guys, one that is quite similar to so many others they do, the funky bretty hop forward style of beer that has been money for a lot of danish brewers lately it seems. this one has a rust colored copper color, orange highlights and some hazy yeasty density underneath a pillowy two inches of almost bone white head. the nose on this is brett but now as intensely as say the (expletive) art, this is architecture version, which was way dryer, way funkier, and had a great grassy/straw malt vibe. this one is hopped a little hardily, but as the expense of brett flavor. citrus notes, sweet orange peel, and a clove spice all intermingle in the taste, with an alpha acid finish thats drying but not dry on the tongue. fuller bodied than others, this drinks nicely as it coats the palate but also refreshes. i chose to sip this slowly though, as it really changes with temperature. good carbonation on it, i love the label and the name, but as a beer i prefer some of their other brett hoppy releases.

Pours a surprisingly clear golden amber with nice frothy white head and lacing.

Nose is a nice funky, band-aid-y, meaty profile. Some hops, some malt, but lots of dry, spider-webby Brett. Dry, champagne-y.

Taste has hops, bit of malt but again lots of drying Brett.

Mouthfeel is watery, very dry and hoppy.

With the ABV, huge Brett presence and hoppiness, this almost drinks like another Orval clone. Can't really go wrong with that profile though. Enjoyable.

Farmhouse IPA. Non human-readable bottling code on the cap. Pours a slightly hazy light copper with thick dense off-white head. Settles to a small head with rings of chunky lace down the glass. Smell: caramel, light toasted bread, notes of hay and stone fruit, faded hopping - herbal with a little pine. Taste: pine, herbal, mildly citric and toasted, nectarine, caramel. Neither a great farmhouse style beer not a great IPA but pretty tasty.
