One of Southern Tier's newer offerings, this continues their tradition of quality balanced, flavorful ales. The American pale ale designation is accurate, not overpoweringly hoppy with a solid pale malt base. Fruity and floral notes dominate throughout as opposed to the piney flavors of west coast hoppy ales. The live terminology refers to the active yeast in this unfiltered beer which give the beer a tart but not sour quality similar to belgian pale ales though it does not taste like a belgian yeast is used. Finishes clean and dry leaving the pallet wanting more, this is a beer that you could drink several pints of.

Poured into a nonic a clear lighter dull golden with a fluffy,sticky one finger white crown atop,the bottle says to decant into a glass,I saw no need.Aromas of grassy/herbal hops over top of nutty malt,not real big but pleasant nose wise.Herbal notes along with a tinge of red onion on the palate,a little tea and mint is noticable,a firm lightly sweet nutty biscuit base holds up to the hops.This a nice APA not gigantic hops but a minty herbal approach that makes it really drinkable,the maltiness is big enough for non hopheads to like this beer as well.Nice job here.
