Tonight’s selection was a beer that I picked up in New York. Let’s see how it was.
Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our small batch beer: Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. is a small, seasonal homestead brewery, opened for tastings and growler sales/fills August 13, 2016 out of our barn. We specialize in extremely high quality small batch recipes, and are making every effort to support and promote local agriculture. We are very fortunate that our property has a wetland and is in the Salmon River watershed area, resulting in exceptionally high quality well water. Many thanks to the UCONN Agricultural Extension for developing our waste nutrient management plan, enabling us to use all of our waste materials either on the property or for farm animal feed. Our large batch beer: Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. is a member of a collective called Twelve Percent Beer Project. This enables us to use our small brew system here on site as a beer test kitchen, constantly offering new beers. We partner and contract brew on a large scale with Twelve Percent, enabling us to brew and distribute on a much larger scale while maintaining the small and intimate experience here at the brewery.”
Random: My fat orange cats are sleeping in their bed, next to each other.
The beer poured with a two finger, pure white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy yellow color with no visible carbonation due to the haziness. The nose had a lot of hay along with some yeast and clove and coriander. There was lemon there as well. The taste was a bit more citrus forward with lemon flesh and pith. The hay and yeast were there as well. The body was light and crisp with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with hay. I enjoyed this beer a lot and would definitely have it again.
