COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You only have to see so many pumpkin beers showing up on shelves in mid-summer before you do a seasonal reality check. Being from the Garden State we are fully aware the flavors of midsummer are. With Panzanella we play that game. A salted ale built around malts chosen to play croutons, Summit hops chosen for their garlic/onion pungency, dry hopped with tomatoes and cucumbers evoking that classic midsummer salad. Drink Panzanella at a picnic table and save the gourds for the harvest.

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Murky golden amber with a creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Garlic crouton with seas salt and leafy greens. Itís light.
Taste: Light and slightly tart salt intro with light garlic crouton finish.
Palate: Light medium bodied, moderately high carbonation.
Overall: Very interesting concept and beer. Itís a better beer than my rating indicates, but itís an oddity. Iím glad that everything is mild on this though.

Draft at Barcade JC. Pours gold with a white head. Salty and earthy notes, with odd floral bitterness, and faint cucumber notes. Weird, but not bad.

Beerman6686 (4351) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2014
This one poured a lighter orange color with a white head. Aroma was of light onion, and pale malt. In flavor cucumber was very faint and.onion from the hops, but just not really getting the salad thing, just didnít.worm.

ben4321 (3920) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Location: Draft at Carton, 7/19/14, Rating #3900!

Aroma: The nose is bready malts, tomato, and some fresh herbal, floral, and onion hops
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy golden-orange color with a somewhat frothy head on top
Flavor: As described, with the saltiness, breadiness, tomato and cucumber, and onion/garlic hops
Palate: The body is fairly light, but not watery at all, just clean, crisp, and refreshing
Overall Impression: This doesnít make a ton of sense as a beer, but it totally works. I was surprised to have enjoyed it as much as I did. For an all Carton day at the beach, this would session very nicely as a less hoppy alternative to Boat (which is a great canned pool beer). Maybe theyíll can this one too next summer.

gripweed57 (687) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Growler from Joe Canalís in Lawrenceville, NJ. Hazy gold color. Earthy malt nose with grassy hop notes. Flavor is dry upfront with toasted malt and bready notes. Some noticeable saltiness and a garlicky nuance. Didnít pickup the tomato or cucumber so much. Refreshing and flavorful, certainly unique.

jdb288 (524) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Draft. Pours murky orange with a bit of creamy head. Lots of savory elements in the nose - garlic and onion are there and take over. I smell onion rings for some reason. Taste is like liquid bruschetta - tomato acidity, cucumber is present and adds some savory/sweetness balance. Overall, the most savory beer Iíve had. Paired well with the cajun mac and cheese I was eating. Funky.

Growler from Carton. Gold. Onion and a garlic note on the aroma. The taste follows suit adding bread and salt. I don't get any tomato or cucumber but the crisp salt and light onion makes this a great summer brew. This is way better than I expected. Nice job! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

revolution2718 (229) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden. Nose is tomato, a bit of cucumber, crackery malt, onion. Taste is lots of bready crouton, tomato, garlic/onion quality, lemon peel, a herbal thing, a little salt/minerality, dry, some bitterness builds on the finish. Crisp and light body, refreshing. I like how the salad flavors are definitely there, but are subtle and don't overpower. When I first heard about it I was suspicious, but its really a pretty cool and unique beer that I enjoyed drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
