Brewed in: Cooperstown NY USA
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
This is notably listed as a summer ale on the bottle. At the time of this review, and after a long cold winter, this beer is just what the doctor ordered. It pours into the glass with a cloudy straw color and a very generous head. Be careful not to get too much of the yeast that is in the bottom of the bottle into your glass. Also it will pour with a lot of head so care needs to be treated a little bit gently into the glass.
The scent is of banana cloves and floral spiciness. On the taste front, it is exactly what you expect from a Belgian, lots of banana cloves and Belgian yeast funkiness. It is dry and highly carbonated. This beer pops and is bright on the tongue. It tastes great and is a great summer beer from an American brewer that makes a very good run at a classic world style.
