BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with a new friend, Kjetil Jikiun, founder and brewer at Nogne-O. Our aim was to brew a delicate, sessionable beer incorporating elements of the saison and hoppy American ale styles. We used a blend of our house ale and saison yeast strains. The result, an ale, golden in color, generously hopped, with background notes of saison funk accented by soft rye and wheat flavors.

On-draught @ Proletariat NYC. Brief impressions from a teku pour:

A: Black body. Pale khaki head.

Sm: Roasted barley, dark malts, floral hop character, coffee roast, chocolate malts. The roast dominates - which I *love*. Aromatic intensity is mild.

T/Mf: Acidic roast and the beginnings of coffee. Dark malts. Some chocolate malts. Cream. Floral hop character.

Smooth, wet, medium-bodied, well-carbonated. Not sticky, gushed, hot, boozy, or astringent.

O: Highly drinkable, and absolutely worth trying. More solid work from Maine. One of the better beers I've had in this nascent style.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 7/16/2013.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Medium white head. Thick chunky collar. Nice lacing.

Smell - Doughy malts. Belgian yeast and sweetness. Orangey hops. Alittle rye.

Taste - Orange hops and a grainy malt character. Less doughy, more of the spicy rye. Herbal and grassy in the finish. A little bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. High carbonation.

Overall - I didn't notice the bottle date when I picked this up. It would appear Maine beers sit quite a while. I was just excited to try a Maine beer I hadn't had. Clean flavors, maybe lacking some excitement.

Collaboration Time III pours a hazy honey yellow into the glass with a small, white head on top. The foam fades away quickly leaving behind some spots and lines of lace.

The aroma has a nice blend of orange citrus, lime, coriander, and white pepper. A little banana is present too. The citrus reminds me of an orange grove. Very soft and inviting.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft with an effervescent fizz. The flavor is much like the aroma, orange, lemon and lime citrus blended with mild spice notes of white pepper, coriander and clove. Some bubblegum and banana sweetness appears in the background. It finishes dry with a little fruity tartness. Once gone the citrus and spice lingers on the palate.

Overall this is a well crafted, very tasty beer. Very easy to drink and would go great with some fancy cheese.

Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a hazy paler golden color. There was a bit of a white head on it. Some lacing. The aroma is good. Some rye, spices, citrus, earthy, wheat to name but a few. The taste is also good. Wheat, rye, grassy, yeasty, spicy. A touch bitter and dry to finish. Very Nice!
