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.

Haslinger (1000) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2018
bought a 6 pack of this at the Local Hub in Bryant Pond ME. Pretty solid beer, grainy, malty, tasty. Definite hints of yeasty sweetness a bit funky in the finish. Slightly astringent. Solid beer! would buy again

Cybercat (6417) - Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2018
Taps translucent orangy amber with a thick beige head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma presents sweet fruit, raw malt, resiny hops, and a hint of butterscotch. Flavor is pure Belgian, fresh malt, sweet pomme and tropical fruit, a little hops, a bit of butterscotch and a bit of yeast. Mouthfeel offers fairly firm, smooth body and lively fizz. Sixteen counties of taste!

erikaraeb (326) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2017
Yeast and lemon are tempered by the creaminess of the oats and the roastiness of the red wheat. Smooth overall and very easy drinking.

Adamsville (425) - 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.
