COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Baseball and beer. Few things are more ingrained in America’s psyche than baseball and beer. The histories of both are laden with traditions and transcendence. Rascals and radicals. Celebration and shared experience. Treasured summertime moments with sun on our faces and a beer in our hands. The timeless game defines our past and guides our future.

Lightly golden-straw hue with a lasting thick, white head. Aromas of sweet malt, floral with slight citrus are followed by delicate herbal notes. Faintly sweet giving way to mellow, lightly floral hop flavor and notes of banana and pears from our signature house yeast. Nicely balanced with a clean herbal-hopped finish makes this an enjoyably, quaffable ale.

If you’ve had a lot of Ommegang beers, you’ve basically had this beer, since it tastes exactly like their house yeast with slight hints of fruitiness. But it’s mostly all yeast flavor, which is fine because the Ommegang yeast is quite good for these light sipper summer beers.

Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, rocky, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of lemon zest, pepper, gum, sulfur, hay. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Shockingly good, or at least this sample is. Very peppery, zesty, herbal, saison-ish nose with great flavor balance...when I first smelled it I was immediately reminded of Saison Dupont, believe it or not. Very dry/crisp finish with nice yeasty tartness, and a fluffy mouthfeel. And look at that head! Geez...enormous meringue thing that lasts til the very last traces of liquid remain in the glass. Best new (to me) beer from Ommegang since that first batch of Hop House rolled into Colorado a couple years ago (which was also a 4.1 for me, but subsequent batches didn’t measure up). To reference the theme of the beer, they certainly knocked this one out of the park. Gonna have to give this the 4-pack test for sure.

Pours gold with a fluffy white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is floral, pear, grass and yeast. Taste is sweet with some tartness. Light bodied, smooth with some drying on the finish.

Jow (2649) - New York, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Tap at Draught 55 heading up to inlaws lake house in Cooperstown in a few weeks so cheers to that. Golden pour. Nose is yeast and tropical fruit. Tastes of banana, cloves, coriander, yeast, papaya, herbal, and lemongrass. Soft palate. Lovely post gym beer this afternoon

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of funky yeast, bready and wheat malt, wheat and some floral hops and pears. Body is medium and creamy. Herbal hops, funky yeast, wheat malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent brew.

Just like the description. Has the nice characteristic smell and flavor of a Belgian brew. Every molecule passes through the characteristic Belgian yeast imparting a sour but yummy flavor that groes on you! This is really good. But not terribly strong. Good summer beer for those who appreciate the yeasty nature of Belgian beers or stronger German weizen grogs.

draft that poured a hzy yellow color with a white head. had a bit of a banana aroma and sweet malts with some floral tones. the flavor was more of the same but I get some crispness in the flavor and fruit notes. pretty decent as to how smooth and flavorful it was.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a pale yellow with a nice white lacing head. Mild fruity aroma. Crisp, clean sweet pale malt taste with bread dough, white grapes, lemon zest and mild hops.

Cooperstown calls itself a Blonde Ale, but seems like the hybridization of a Saison, Blonde, and Belgian Ale. Its looks are like a Saison with a golden body and a long-lasting head. Aroma presents fruity yeast esters and bread malt - much like a Belgian White and Belgian Ale. Taste offers banana, clean hops, fresh bread, pomaceous fruit, and mildly earthy yeast. Blonde Ale or not, Cooperstown Ale offers a lot more flavor and complexity than traditionally lighter summer beers. It’s a beautiful and refreshing Belgian-style ale.
