Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a thick white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of bready malt, bubblegum, banana, hints of root beer spices, unusual and intriguing. Flavor quite different; biscuit malt, citrus, grassy hops with faint hints of Belgian yeast and spicing. Leaves a lingering ginger, banana and grassy hop flavor. Light to medium bodied with nice active carbonation. An interesting light ale that leans in profile towards am American pale ale, but has some light Belgian hints. Refreshing, interesting and nicely made.

Summit Union Series Meridian Session Ale, Meridian Hops grown in the USA, Concerto Pale malt grown in the United Kingdom…Belgian-style Session Ale. Limited Edition Craft Brew. 4.5 % Alc by Vol. 32 IBU. Enjoy by 9/28/13.
This is a new one for me. Summit broke from their shell of the same ol' tried and true with the Unchained Series, and now this new Union Series that I don't fully understand. Not sure what the aim is with this. No matter, I'll just step right into it an see what the beer is all about…
Lightly hazed, golden yellow appearance, nice snowy white head, leaving lace.
Aroma: fresh and lively, lightly spicy, slightly fruity, giving the general sense of a witbier/BPA. Gorgeous, actually. Mm.
Taste: Hmmm. Pale malt, some wheat? ( not sure…), we've got the fruit and the spice and a little bit of hops. Nice stuff. It's a drinker, plenty of special Belgian-style flavorings. Nicely consumable. Plenty of flavor, plenty of pleasure.
Thanks, Summit, I'll have another.
