Asked for a sour but they didn't have any so this was suggested instead because it's kind of "funky".I liked it but I want something funkier.

A pretty golden amber. A thin,clean white head. Scant lacing. Nose is exciting with notes of honey, mango and pineapple as well as traditional light fruits like apples, pears and grapes. Taste delivers on the promise of the nose. A well presented hybrid. A Belgian tropical IPA fusion. Saison like malt core with a honeyed, caramel malt body. Hops offer up tons of tropical fruits that broaden the sweetness and malt flavors. Then those same characters dry and bitter the beer expertly. Nice crisp Belgian funk. A tropical/citrus IPA personality that is clean and short in the finish. Crisp feel with a smooth, effervescent swallow. Solid beer overall with a standout personality.

4oz pour for $3 USD @ the taproom. The cramped crowded space forces my notes to be brief.

Oats, melon, flaked wheat, and a kiss of oak round out this overhopped farmhouse ale. I don't find rye's signature spiciness, but there is some doughy spelt/dinkel when I look for it.

Decent depth of flavour.

Lacks any spice, Belgian yeast, starchiness, or brettanomyces funkiness. No oak character from the foudre they age this in (maybe a move to barrels would help).

Drinkable but forgettable, Veldrijden Love is a saison for the IPA fan (and isn't that the market Other Half caters to?).

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

Received this one in a trade. It's always great to get some rare East coast goodies!

Poured from a 750ml bottle into an oversized wine glass. The beer is a deep apricot colour with a huge white head.

The nose is sweet with a touch of vanilla and biscuity graham crackers. I can really pick up the chardonnay barrel. The saison yeast comes through in the nose. A touch of fusel alcohol and fruity esters.

Wow lots going on in the taste. The fruit is up front and then woodiness from the chardonnay barrel. The signature Belgian yeast makes an appearance and a slight sweetness finishes it off. This is not as dry as some saisons, especially now that a lot of saisons are brewed with brett.

This beer has a fairly descent medium mouthfeel, it's definitely not thin.

Overall a great beer! This a beer for those who like barrel aged saisons, complex and tasty.

Appearance: Arrives hazy and honey colored with a thin meringue of a head: pretty decent lacing action

Smell: Bready and spicy with wheat and rye tones; stone fruit, vanilla and oak, with a vinous element

Taste: Bready, up front, with the fruit (lychee and plum), the rye spice and the vanilla kicking in; oaky and vinous through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very interesting Saison with a lot of malt complexity and a strong vanilla aspect that complements the fruit flavors
