Notes/Commercial Description:
Two Front Teeth Ale is made just for the holiday season. This ale is a Belgian style Saison with a complex palate derived from the addition of sweet cherries in the brewing process. Light mahogany in color, it hits the tongue with a full-bodied malty taste that is balanced with a light hop aroma, then finishes with a fruity cherry blast that lingers pleasantly. Stop by the Taproom and ask Matt how this festive ale got its name.

Very strange brew here. Lots of nuances in the smell. Cherries, yeast, cloves or nutmeg, maybe some cinnamon. With the cherry flavor, call me crazy but this stuff tastes like bubble-gum. For the season, it's pretty nice. Warming almost like a brandy, tasty, festive. I like it.

It's too spicy for a daily beer. And don't have a Christmas party serving only this beer and expect your guests to stay sober because it's potent. It will be a very short party.

Happy holidays.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Draft offering at the Spring house Taproom. The brew pours a hazed yellow cokor with a creamy white cap. As the suds fade, a full wall of lace sticks to the glass.

The aromatics are fruity with a touch of fresh grain character. This is juicy smelling almost with a citrus sort of zip like mango. It isnt until the brew warms up that it seems to come from more of a cherry inclusion.

The taste is borderline vinous instead of cherry-like (not that its an issue.) It has an inclusion of herbal hop bitterness to balance and some belgian candy aspect almost lemony in flavor with a finish that is sweet.

This is a med bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Overall a fairly nice offering that is unique and outside the realm of style (like most Spring house offerings.) Its not a favorite saison or holiday offering but I would not be against having it again sometime.

First had: on tap at the Taproom, Lancaster, PA

Served in a snifter, a hazy amber color with a small creamy cap of white head. Definitely a nice looking beer. Bready yeast in the aroma, toasted grain and grain alcohol, some fruity esters, but not really identifiable as cherry, even though I knew from the description that's what it was. A wave of blandness greeted my palate with this one. Bready malts, yeast, alcohol grains and quite a bit of boozy burn; cherries were in there somewhere, but more of a light essence than a balanced and melded flavor. I think this beer was young and hot when I sampled it...I like my wife for those reasons, but not this beer! And speaking of my wife, she seemed to like this one a lot, but for me, it just wasn't appealing at all. The booze flashed off any other flavors that might have been present. Medium body, and really just not ready to drink yet. Probably would be good with a little age to it, but I don't have any bottles, so I wouldn't know.

Served on-tap at the tasting room. Reviewed from notes.

A - Pours amber orange with a small white head leaving small amounts of lace on the glass.

S - Smells of cherry syrup, spicy yeast, clove and some bready wheat.

T - Starts off with a ton of syrupy cherry flavor that never really goes very far. Hints of bready malt and yeast combine with some spice to finish things off.

M - Surprisingly large body with moderate carbonation. Slick, sticky feel from start to finish.

O - Not really a fan of this one. I can see what they are doing but not really my style.

I had this on-tap at the brewpub in Lancaster. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a red hue. There is a mild amount of off white head that goes away completely.

Smell: Sugar cookie dough. Some almond and vanilla extract, quite sweet. This smells great.

Taste: There is some sugar cookie dough, but there is a fruit cherry notes as well. This one approaches cough syrup a bit too much. Not bad, but a letdown after the smell.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the thick side and syrupy. The carbonation is fizzy with a dry finish.

Overall: The smell is just awesome. The taste is a bit too bitter and boozy. Oh well, not bad.

Serving type: on-tap
