3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled as "Saison" at State College BrewExpo. This cloudy pale amber beer had a slight wispy pale foamy head, a medium watery body and mild carbonation. It was listed as Saison at the festival, but I was told that it was really just a rename of the Farmhouse Ale. By aroma, there was some nice yeastiness and mild dusty grain notes. Taste was rougher than I had hoped for, but there was definitely a yeasty lemony component and light spices. In all, it was rather tangy, if not actually acidic.

Tap at Cooperstown. Clear pale yellow, white head. Citrus hoppy aroma. Flavor is light and crisp. A little hop and a little citrus. Decent brew.
