COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We named this beer to honor the rich tradition of farming in the sixteen counties of Maine. We brew the beer with malted Maine-grown barley, unmalted Maine-grown red wheat, and Maine-grown organic oats. Sixteen Counties has a bright copper hue with aromas of lemon rind, flowers, and candied grapefruit. The first sip opens with herbal hop notes, wheat cracker, and citrus and ends with a balanced, dry finish.

Pillowy head with golden, active carbonation underneath. Balanced aroma with lemon slightly forward. Initial wheat flavor overtaken by grapefruit. Finish is crisp and a bit acidic.

Adamsville (374) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2017
Apparence : Dorée, trouble, gros col blanc, bonne rétention et dentelle intéressante.
Nez : Agrumes, malt, léger poivre, côté herbacé et floral.
Goût : Rustique, maltée, herbacée, fin, légère amertume. Orange, poire, fruitée en finale avec l’aspect poivré qui ressort.
Sensation : Corps assez dense, finale épicée, belle longueur, assez chaleureuse, sèche.
Bref : Impressionné. Cette bière démontre une ‘’complexité’’, un équilibre et une profondeur auxquels je ne m’attendais pas. Les fruits (orange, poire, peut-être un peu de banane), les notes herbacées/rustiques, le malt, l’amertume; tout est bien dosé. Plus maltée et dense qu’une Saison, moins sucrée et plus sèche qu’une Tripel; elle invite à la gorgée suivante. Excellent travail de leur levure maison combinée aux céréales locales. Sous-estimée.

tightslice (1397) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is lemon, meadows, mother nature. Fruity, spicy, earthy, effervescent. Like a seasoned pro.

JStax (7123) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2017
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a bright orange with a big white head of foam. The aroma has grassy and grainy notes with aspects of vanilla bean and orange rind. A little pithy. Dry and floral bitterness in the taste. Quite dry. Medium body and medium carbonation. Velvety mouthfeel. Pretty good overall. Nice beer to accompany a hot day.

jsnicholas (663) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle (750ml). Cloudy golden with big white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, some lemon. Taste has some citrus, a little sweetness and maybe even a little cereal (never said that before).Very drinkable. Very refreshing.

3.4
yespr (47002) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2017
From tap. Pours hazy orange with a small white hesd. Aroma is phenolic, light fruity. Mild fruity, phenolic and toasted malty. Bitter and slight herbal finish.

3.5
Metalchopz (3472) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2017
Purchased in Vermont, Easter 2017. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a creamy white cap and very good retention. Light sweet nose from the Belgian Ale yeast and oatmeal. Citrus notes and other fruity malts. This fruitiness continues in the flavours with some nice grass in the finish to give some dry bitterness. Mild spices and a soda water feel. A complex brew, but a little too rich to enjoy such a bit bottle.

4.2
gripweed57 (2793) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2017
750 ml corked and crowned bottle. Pours a hazy honey gold color topped by a massive frothy beige head. Light fruity, yeasty lemon peel aroma. Big bitter grainy malt flavor upfront. Yeasty, earthy, minerally notes. Tart and refreshing. Middle smoothes out and becomes wheat-like and citrusy. Finish is spicy and dry with peppery notes. Complex and tasty.

3.8
Homer321 (5166) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Draft. Nose is light citrus. Lemon sort of. Some perfume like coriander. Hazy straw pour. Taste is great. A soft vanilla sweetness with light candi sugar. Like circus peanuts. Lightly phenolic I the finish, some light esters. Very nice.
