On tap. Poured a hazy orange. Aroma was pretty cool! Bretty yeastiness & bread. Like I'm talking freshly baked bread. Some tangy yeast; nearly tart. Flavor starts out slightly tart with Bretty fruits and medicine. Then, bang! It finishes like fresh, robust, intense, doughy bread. Sits on the palate like a loaf of sliced bread. Is it sourdough or white or whole grain? It's actually pretty amazing. Reminds me of home baked bread. This was a really cool beer.

On tap at the Owl Farm in Brooklyn, NY.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like nicely restrained Bretty funk, with some lemon, and bready malt.

This has a nice doughy malt and yeast character that makes this super drinkable, along with a very mild lemony tart character, and some nice subtle funk from the Brett. All of the components come together very nicely, it's nice to see that these IPA monsters can make a beer like this as well.

This is light bodied, with a crisp and mildly juicy mouthfeel, and a a higher level of carbonation.

A really nice, delicate, and tasty beer from Other Half here. I could drink a lot of this.

64 oz growler was poured into a snifter glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is a hazy yellow orange color with some vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Funky, bready, biscuity, cracker, barnyard, chardonnay, vanilla, green apple, oak, and a little fruity.

Taste: Same as above. Some banana notes. Balanced and subtle flavord. Tastes delicious.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, light bodied, a little dry, medium to high carbonation, crisp, and refreshing.

Overall: 1st beer off the foeder worked out really well. Wish I was driving through Brooklyn again.

1/2 growler filled at the source yesterday

Pours clouded dull looking yellows Amber, minor head and leaving next to no lacing.

On the nose I get lemon, grass hay and a bit of barnyard funkiness

Flavorful and complex with more subtle funkiness/mustiness. More lemons, some pepper, some mild herbal hoppyness. Quality stuff, quite enjoyable and well worth a try
