Poured from a bottle with no date into the modified tulip glass.
A - Black ,licorice black, massive froth of varying bubble size. A steady stream of ferocious
carbonation tries to escape the glass .
S - Band aid, a hint of cocoa, and a bit of hoppy grass notes. and more Band aids.
T - Malt forward, a bit of herbal note from the Galaxy, there is no balance to this, sharp edges and muted
middle, the Brett is so far forward that most else is muted.
M - Here the offering is at it's best. medium in body, wonderful carbonation, and a fine linger.
O - A very aggressive Brett presence dominates the offering, the base malts are robust, the hops are buried in mix.
Cheers

Poured out of a 2 year old bomber into chalice.
Look - pours dark with massive tan head. Retains nicely, moderate lace.
Smell - big phenolic flavors reminiscent of band-aid/medicinal.
Taste - lots of funk upfront. Soapy, earthy funk. Get a bit of the hops on the back end.
Feel - medium-bodied; high level of carbonation.
Overall - almost like two different beers. Funky saison upfront, black IPA on the end. Interesting.

Tried a two year old bottle. The head was massive. Pours dark, and you can definitely taste the funk. Little bit of hops. Overall it wasn't bad. Probably wouldn't but it again though.

This beer didn't really work for me. It tasted as bad as the smell of my wet ski boots.

Thanks to analogchainsaw for this extra, the last survivor of a trade that, well, this brew has been sitting in the fridge idle for too long. No more. 500ML bottle poured en masse into my big turtle snifter.

The pour is black chased with red highlights, with a booming head. The smell is aiming for truth in advertising. Strong hops, mostly citrus & pine, an edge of roast, & an underlying fetid bog that I associate with certain species of farmhouse ale. Not sure if I love it, but quite interesting.

Funky Galaxy Hopped Black Farmhouse Ale could only get trendier if it had been aged in bourbon barrels & spelunker aged. The beer veers from galaxy-heavy on the nose to farmhouse-heavy on the tongue. Light funk clashes with a stronger roast, & the combination isn’t winning any friends. Pine, citrus trundle into the mid-palate, confusing things even more, even before the yeast bursts through with green apple. The end is drowned in dusty dryness & a queer graininess. Tell me this is oak-aged & even without tasting it I’d believe. I’m not wild about it, but seem to have no problem taking repeated sips.

Sometimes it’s better to toss in the faucet, drains, pipes…& just leave the kitchen sink moored securely in the countertop. We all love a complex beer, but there seems to be a brushfire war going on between the various ingredients here, & they don’t mesh well at all. Still decent enough.
