Forest & Main Banjo

Posted: February 13, 2017 in Forest & Main Brewing Company, Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale

So, back to my story of visiting Forest & Main. We ordered a bunch of appetizers because I was starving and every single thing we ordered was terrible. We even ordered a cold appetizer plate that was inedible. I could barely get through more than two bites. The server didn’t even notice and since I lack a bit of patience, once I’m done, I’m done. We decided to just get the check and leave without ordering much else. I felt badly because the server was obviously very young and inexperienced, so we still left a decent tip, but this still goes in the books as one of the worst meals we ever attempted. Needless to say, it will awhile if we ever go back.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: Happy hour at Forest & Main is Tuesday through Friday.

Random: One of the guys my mother used to work with decided to take up the banjo.

The brew poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly. It left limited lacing on the glass. The body was slightly hazy and bright yellow with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with citrus, cucumbers, cantaloupe and orange segments. The taste was equally as good as the nose. I picked up the same notes, but the citrus and cantaloupe stood out. Cucumber was there, but I wish it was a little more bold. It had a light body with moderate carbonation that needed to be a bit more dialed up. It had a quick, citrus finish. I liked this beer and honestly, it didn’t take me long to drink it since it was so light. This is a solid choice.
