Bottle from Hill Farmstead. From notes.

A - Poured light golden, sort of like apple juice. Strong carbonation, bright. Nice dense two finger white fluffy head left good lace rings and a good finger of retention. Cloudy with yeast added.

S - Citrus hop, nice yeast component of the Belgian persuasion, orange, hops.

T - Lot's of yeasty notes, lot's of lemon, sweet grain, floral, spritsy.

M - Very strong carbonation, fairly dry finish, medium body.

O/D - The carbonation was a bit strong, but I suppose suited to the style. I suppose it could have been hoppier considering the 'copious amounts' claim on the bottle, but it was hoppy and enjoyable nonetheless. It seemed quite to style and sits above many examples of the style which are usually fairly uninteresting.

Bottle I brought to share at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a murky yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, spice, chalk, and skunky aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy spice and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a smell that is slightly better than the taste, even though there is some initial skunk-like aromas.
