BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States
ommegang.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Author James Fenimore Cooper gave the name 'Glimmerglass' to the beautiful body of water that graces Cooperstown. Nestled between gentle mountains, it reflects any object held up to it, just as it reflects our joy at the arrival of each spring.

Deep straw to light amber in color with a thick, pure white head. The saison yeast strain gives off fruity aromas of pear, apple and slight citrus balanced with a delicate floral hop character and a touch of spiciness. Taste is very clean, with pronounced fruit flavors, delicate bready malt followed by welcomed spicing. Crisp finish with lingering yet subtle notes of yeast and touches of fruity pepper.

To be honest, I don't remember this one much. I think it was a little herbal for my taste
