Forest & Main Muon

Posted: February 12, 2017 in Forest & Main Brewing Company, Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale

One of the places that Val and I have been waiting to try is Forest & Main. It’s a bit of a hike from us, but it looked like a place we would be into. The exterior is a super-cute restored house and the menu looked tasty as well. Add to it the fact that they make their own beer and have visually pleasing glassware and that usually spells a win for us. But, although I enjoyed the beer here, this was a miss. I’ll go into some further detail tomorrow.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: They are currently closed Mondays. I wish there was more information on the website, but it’s a little lacking.

Random: I’m a sucker for cute glassware.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly. It left a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy yellow with no visible carbonation due to the cloudiness. The nose had some bright citrus and tropical fruit, specifically papaya. After a few sniffs, I picked up some honeydew as well, which was interesting. The taste had some vanilla and then went into tropical fruit notes. I picked up passion fruit, papaya and mango. It also had a note of pencil shavings, which was a bit odd. The body was medium thickness, despite the relatively low ABV. It had just enough carbonation. The finish was lengthy with honeydew and papaya. I had no problem throwing this one back. It had a lot of good flavor and was quite enjoyable. If you see it on tap, it’s definitely worth ordering a pint.
