I love the outdoors. So much so just sitting on my front steps listening to the birds chirp and find food makes me a happy camper. I figured why not have beer #177, Colette by Great Divide Brewing Company, while enjoying the sights and sounds of a beautiful spring day.
Colette, a Saison or Farmhouse Ale with an ABV of 7.3%, poured a lovely opaque golden yellow and had a white head sitting on top of it. The nose was tart with lemon and wheat and a bit of that yeasty spiciness. The tartness follows through in the taste. The wheat takes over mid drink. It had a bitter finish with a bit of a sour thing going on. It had an odd aftertaste that I couldn’t put my finger on. The mouthfeel was highly carbonated and had a medium body. Beware of the ABV as it snuck up on me…in a good way that is.
Pretty decent beer. About the only thing I didn’t really like was the aftertaste.
