The 2007 Harvest Ale is a great example of the difference between using fresh, wet hops in the kettle over dry hops. The beer poured very clean, I assume the yeast was filtered out and this beer did not bottle condition. The color was a nice amber color with a creamy white head that lasted throughout the glass. The smell was great; crisp and clean but not overpowering. With a smell this refined, great care was taken to ensure purity in this brew. The taste seemed a bit light to me, granted the fresh hops do not impart the robust taste that the dried hops give but I still felt this beer was a bit thin. Very crisp, however; it was a nice change from the almost purely dried hops used in every other beer. The mouthfeel was exceptional and this is a definitely drinkable beer. Well worth a try if you can still find a bottle. Cheers!
