Flat, pithy (and very bitter as a result), juicy, turbid but still thin. Not an enjoyable beer. Would love to see TH have some humility with their products and set a standard for themselves. Bottles like this--which they sit on for over a year in hopes of it carbing up and then choose to release anyway when they determine it never will--and recent diacetyl issues in their hoppy cans really have me down on a brewery I want to support.

This was a difficult bottle. First pour was fine. Thick hazy orange appearance, light head, lively carb. Very sour and bitter, but not in a "wild ale" way, more in just an intense citrus way. There was a LOT of clementine in here, and in a way it sort of detracted from the general delicate balance that makes FarmHands / Ourison so good. However, in it's own right, this was still a tasty beer. Then about 2/3 of the way through the bottle, I looked at my glass...it was almost completely full of sloppy sediment, and the beer was moving violently on its own, as if active fermentation was still occurring. 0_o As such, this was a very difficult one to finish, and honestly I couldn't do it. Maybe there's bottle variation, I don't know, but next time I pop one of these, I will be pouring it extremely carefully, and hopefully not wasting a significant portion of the bottle. Because again, this is still a tasty beer.

This doesn't taste bad, but it doesn't taste like beer. It is pure juice, like a screwdriver or a mimosa. Bizarre. No traces of the Ourison base beer.
