Tasting: August 2, 2014
Beer #: 568
Long Trail Brush and Barrel Saison
Had this Long Trail offering last night at a friends – even though they know I’m a beer geek, I wasn’t going to take my phone out to sneak a picture. Too bad because it was a glowing rich yellow color. I’ve always said that the impression a beer or wine has on you is sometimes impacted by the company in which it is shared. Last night, we had fun sharing stories and had a some good laughs. This saison was 7.1% alcohol by volume and had the typical clove, banana yeast flavors. It was mellow and I’ll probably give it a higher score than I would just sitting at my computer – 86 points.
