This is an experimental release from Ithaca using 3 yeast strains (including Brett). 4 barrels were brewed and it's expected to go fast. Pale, cloudy straw color with a foamy white head that dissipates to moderate lacing. Banana and clove aroma with a bit of sour funkiness. Mellow flavor with some citrus and clove spiciness. Dry, clean, slightly bitter finish. Medium-light bodied with good drinkability. I'm not very familiar with this style, but I certainly like this offering.

I had this on tap in a tasting glass inside of the Ithaca Brewing Co Store while visiting some friends and family in Ithaca for the festival this weekend. For those not in the know, they are currently on their last half barrel of this, so get it while it's still there!

The taste and scent of this pale yellow beer was that of light cloves and a hint of bananas. Mouthfeel was excellent and smooth and it was extremely drinkable. The Saison style or Farmhouse Ale is meant to be low ABV and a thirst quencher for farmers and laborers out in the hot sun, and after a hot day, this sure hit the spot.

My only regret is I cheaped out and didn't buy a growler of this because of the ride home!
