COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summit kicks off the new limited-release Union Series with Meridian Session Ale. Inspired by Belgian Enkel (single) style ales. Drinkable yet distinctive. Simple in design yet complex in character. Brewed with a single malt, Concerto Pale, that’s a rising star in the UK and a new hop variety called Meridian that was actually discovered by accident in Oregon (more on that story below). Of course, we called it Meridian Session Ale for a reason. So don’t let the whole single-minded thing keep you from ordering another round.

I’m excited about this new series from Summit, but this isn’t the best start. Tried this one on tap at Sea Salt.

Copper pour with a solid off-white head. Aroma of mild dark fruit, grapefruit and some floral hops. Flavor is really good for such a low ABV. Juicy, well-balanced dark fruit, mild malt sweetness and a nice citrus bite from the hops. Eminently drinkable. One of my favorite Summit beers so far.

tmoreau (4365) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to rocks glass samplers with a clear, light golden color, and a modest amount of white, bubbly head foam. Lightly sweet, light lemon, just a touch of banana detected, with floral and spice hints, and slight tartness. Moderately bitter, and light bodied. A quaffably sound brew.

Pale colored with little head. Aroma is all Belgian yeast. Flavor similar Belgian yeast with some hops. Decent session beer.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, big thanks to Caleb! Clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, slight watery grains, hints of lemon, slight yeast notes, touch of grass, eh. Taste is a mix of watery grain, biscuit, bread, very slight banana, clove, slight yeast, finishing watery, slightly dry, yeasty.

A great, clean crisp and very drinkable beer. Leaves the palate fresh and ready for another.

3.4
Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Yellow, plain appearance. Moderate body, a bit silky, a bit of hopped tingle. Flavors are solid and drinkable; they may be right in claiming that it is somewhat distinctive. Notes of apple, caraway, caramel, grapefruit, vanilla. Reasonably good. Bottle.

3.3
BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Light gold pour with a smaller pure white head. Grain, pepper, mild herb, and some yeast. Pretty tasty - easy drinker.

3.7
heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Deep bronze reddish tinted brew with a light off white head. The nose is sweet and grainy with some pears. Notes of peanuts and toast are also present along with a fairly strong orange hint. This is fairly bitter with some orange peels and flowers. There is also some peanut character. Tasty with more bite thab expected. This is well done.
