Mystic Table Beer

Posted: March 19, 2015 in Mystic Brewery, Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale

The other half isn’t home yet and I’m watching “Gangland.” They’re discussing a motorcycle gang based out of Pennsylvania that I’ve never heard of. At one time, they were one of the largest distributors of meth in New Jersey. Anyways, let’s get to something more interesting and legal…

ABV: 4.3%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Mystic Table Beer traces its roots back to a time when water was never an option at the dining table. Beer from 1.2-4.5% ABV was served at the table as well as in the fields in the form of saison. Its flavor and texture are derived from our house yeast strain, ‘Renaud’ as well as traditional bottle-conditioning. The Name. Like it’s big brother Mystic Saison, Table Beer was named to reflect the unpretentious field beers that inspired it.”

Random: I really do enjoy “Gangland.” The format is really good.

This cork opened with a huge popped. It poured with a one finger, thin white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, lemon yellow color with moderate carbonation. The nose was filled with lemon and yeast and light spice. The taste was also very light with not a lot of flavor, which was a bit disappointing. There was some bready yeast, light lemon but it didn’t provide a lot of tartness. There was some spice, but not enough. It had a thin body with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with yeast and lemon. It was $11.99 for the bomber, which was $.55 per ounce. Given what I expect from Mystic beers, this one just didn’t do it for me. I wouldn’t have it again.
