A 330ml bottle with a BB of April 2018. Acquired a while back from the Brewdog webshop. The label describes it as a funky Belgian-style farmhouse pale ale, in addition to informing you that architecture is politics (which is true).

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A hazy orange-amber hue with fine sediment and plentiful carbonation. Produces a vast head of fluffy, meringue-like foam with superb retention; this slowly reduces to a thick surface layer. Nice lacing.

S: Aroma of fruity yeast esters with hints of white grape, mild sour lemon, green apples, subtle spice, earthiness, grain and faint stewed leaves. Lovely saison profile.

T: Tastes of fruity yeast esters with a tart, bone-dry finish. Notes of lemon rind, faint white grape, a hint of green apples, spice, earthy yeast, grain, husks and stewed leaves. Highly attenuated, followed by a dry, lingering yeasty character upon swallowing. Mild bitterness.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with effervescent carbonation and good body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of sharp, fruity yeast esters, earthiness and mild stewed leaves.

O: Impressive - an excellent take on a classic Belgian style. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by dry, fruity yeast notes and hints of grain. Lovely body. Stands out from the crowd and goes down all too easy. Well worth sampling if you come across it.

Pours a cloudy golden/orange color with a massive straw colored head. Laces moderately and retains head in a huge way (in a glass with no etchings!)

Smells grassy, lemony, with some candy sweetness and a hint of fresh grain.

Light caramel malt with some lemon, pine, and grassy notes, which give way to a light candy sweetness. Lingers with a bready sweetness and hints of lemon.

Glides over the tongue effervescently, this beer is perfectly carbonated for the flavors it brings forward.

I initially approached this beer as a saison, and then I found To Øl's release describing it as a table/pale ale aggressively hopped and fermented with brett. Its not really a true saison, but it comes out as a fantastically complex summer pale-like ale. I love the way the taste lingers on the tongue with just enough of the sour to remind you its there. This turned out to be one of my favorite random liquor store selections and I will be seeking out more beers from To Øl.

this is a damn fine beer, sending a bit of a curious political message, with that unfinished hotel from north korea i think, right? but the beer in the bottle is fantastic. foggy bronze color with a colossal white head, airy and cloud-like, not going anywhere. the nose is hoppy in the citrus family, but real yeasty, tons of farmy funk. not sure if this is brett fermented or conditioned, but it has that kind of nose, and it absolutely has that kind of dryness. the flavor of the grain is rather delicate for its richer reddish color, i get some fruity esters from the yeast too, belgian in nature for sure. there is a classic farmhouse flavor to this, similar to some mikkeller brews, that i just love, but the yeast has manifested itself in a very interesting way in terms of mouthfeel. i take a sip and hold it for just a second, and the intensely fizzy feel continues to expand to point where liquid ceases to exist and all of the beer has turned into a wispy effervescent fluff, and there is basically nothing to swallow anymore, so strange, so unique. this is what makes me think there is some brett in here, but it could just be a killer belgian strain. never had a beer do that, and for it to finish so dry after being both so hoppy and so funky, is amazing. a brilliantly crafted brew here, probably my favorite from these guys so far.

330ml bottle. Goblet glass. Brass color & foggy appearance. White foam forms a close crown that leaves a lasting layer on top while dissipates. Brett aroma, hints of smoke, sour on the back, green bay leaves & spices to the nose. Sweet malty upfront cut by sour touch. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Funny palate. Oily texture. Sour/sweet finish & acidic notes on the aftertaste. Delightful. Great job !!

Poured into a Chimay goblet from a 750mL.

Pours a hazy peach/gold with almost an inch of head, decent lace retention.

The smell is pretty amazing. Smells like walking through an orchard of mixed ripe fruit. The floral, fruit and earthy notes are out of this world!

Light and crisp, yet complex and flavorful. Grains, fruit and grassy/earthy hops mix well up front with the Belgian yeast. Dries out with a hint of tartness in the middle. Dry, crisp finish.

A little pricy, but very nice Saison or Belgian Pale. I'm tempted to cellar!
