Perennial Meriwether

Posted: January 8, 2017 in Perennial Artisan Ales, Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale

One of the nicknames I hated as a child was “Meriwether.” Being named Meredith, you get a certain amount of nicknames that are sufficiently irritating (the worst one being, “Merri Christmas…ha ha ha.”). Of course, they would think they were the first one to tell me that one. I typically go by either “Mer” or “Maria” at work (it’s easier for people to remember). Hopefully this beer is better than my childhood nickname trauma.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: This beer was a collaboration between The Commons brewery.

Random: I’ll go into my time in Columbus soon, but suffice it to say, I’ve spent so much time at the airport that TSA knows me by name. They’re very nice here.

This beer poured with a huge, four finger, white head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, lemon yellow color. The nose was also had lemon pith with grassy hops and a lot of yeast. The taste was really bright and grassy. It had a green herbal note, like cilantro or basil. It had lemon flesh and an orange segment sweetness. Yeast was present with light spice and breadiness. The body was light with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with orange segments and fruit juice sweetness. A bomber of this was $14.99, which came to $.68 per ounce. This was an easy drinker and had a lot of flavor with. This would make a great table beer.
