16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a dim, clouded, golden-orange body with a half-inch of white head. Good lacing.

Smell: Pithy lemon overneath scantly bready wheatiness, low resins, low spices. A bit of a modest aroma overall.

Taste: Soft white wheat, a slight graininess and a nibble of brioche. Lightly sweet. Resins, lemon and a pithy quality. Small pinch of spice. Medium bitterness. Drying, pith-rimmed finish with a hint of lemon juice moistened bread. Some bitterness lingering.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's okay, like many Saranac beers (the better ones at least) it just falls a bit short.

Serving type: on-tap

Part of an assorted sixer called an Adirondack Trail Mix. Popping the top this brew has a citrusy and piney hop smell. Pours into a handy glass to a cloudy faded yellow with an off white head that disappears quickly. On the taste this brew has a bold sourness upfront, then gets a little spiced malt sweetness followed by a bitterness of the hopping that then fades into the finish. Kind of a unique flavor. Odd indeed.

used to like this better. still pretty clean tasting but too dry. the hops aren't there like I remember, its too perfumey. still, a clean drink and I can go through a sixer and not mind getting it again. in fact, all Saranac beers have agreed well with me, just not always blowing my mind with flavor
