COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While Hoppy Table Beer was inspired by the Belgian tradition of low-ABV, easily drinkable beers, it still occupies a hop-forward spot all its own. Brewed with our 2-row malt blend, Maris Otter malt, and oats, the beer is then spiced with a subtle addition of coriander. We ferment it with our house yeast for classic Belgian citrus aromas. Hoppy Table Beer is hopped with Chinook, Cascade, Comet, and Azacca hops, then dry hopped with more Comet and Azacca. A mildly hoppy aroma full of grapefruit springs from this straw-colored, light-bodied ale. Flavors of pine and stone fruit balance the beer’s clean, slightly bitter finish.

Handypaul (566) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber-yellow with a white, 2-finger, fully-lasting, creamy head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of resin, spruce and citrus. Medium body, heavy bitter taste, average to lively carbonation, clean mouthfeel but harsh bitterness dominates through the long finish. Out of balance.

Bottle. Easy drinking session beer with a hoppy backbone. Very good to throw down a couple of these on a hot day at a BBQ rather then a light beer if you want

Well, damn: what a pleasant surprise this beer turns out to be. Bright, fruity, grassy, spicy, and delicious, a wonderful mix of mischievous hop complexity and saison-ish nuance. Starts out like a sunny meadow, herbal and mellow, then gains a moderate yeasty center, lemon-tinted and lined with cloves and tropical hop fruitiness. Grows dry on the finish, floral with hints of white pepper, coriander, and a lingering hop bitterness. Looks absolutely amazing, a hazed pale yellow with infinite head and lacing. Good nose as well, full of grass and fresh-cut wood and yeast. Texture’s a tad thin, not as boisterous as you want, but otherwise a killer brew. Yum.

MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit, flowers and herbs ride this kick-ass quencher’s effusion of effervescence to a pleasantly resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A lofty head of foam covers the shiny yellow haze.
-Mouthfeel is appropriately dry and highly carbonated.
-There is a lot going on for such a light beer!
-Next time, I’m getting a 6-pack.

Bottle.

8/2/17. 12oz bottle from Warehouse. Orange pour with a nice khaki head. Lightly spicy aroma, clean Belgian yeast, citrus. Nice flavor, smooth, refreshing, toasty light maltiness, citrus, hint of ester and spice. Tasty.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 4-pack from liquor store in Bar Harbor, ME. This is a pretty drinkable hoppy Belgian. Not much emphasis on the hops, but it’s good.

I use the Beer Buddy app to discover, catalog and rate beers. I used to love this app BEFORE the latest update that forces you to login and even more annoying is you are now forced to write a MINIMUM 75 CHARACTER COMMENT in order to save and upload a beer rating. In most cases I simply don't have 75 characters of comments, thus this canned response. My apologies to all beer lovers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (7721) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Bottle (Feb 01, 2017 bottling). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (lemon oil, resin, grass, grapefruit), with notes of grains of paradise, coriander, dryer sheets. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. I really need to just stop buying dry-hopped beers. It’s so rare to find one that’s not harsh, crude, and raw as a result. And this one is no exception. And this has witbier tendencies on top of that, which just amplifies the artificial character. A bona fide drain pour, even if it has no off notes other than the chemical-ish hop character. Allagash makes a killer tripel to this day, but I’m becoming skeptical that they make anything else of note.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a softly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Soft citrus with some honey and tangerine notes on the nose, musk. Medium bodied, soft musk, light and crisp, nice earthy hops. Slow bitterness, nice musk component.

Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, light herbs. Taste is sweet and wheaty, mild fruity finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.
