GREENPORT HARBOR SUMMER ALE

Workable soft-toned ‘golden ale infused with Orange Blossom honeyed’ cereal grains picks up musty earthen fungi and herbal black peppering above barren grassy-hopped dried fruiting. Mildewed apricot, lemon rot and moldy peach undertones get soured by raw honeyed sinew. Overall, lacking sunny citric spicing of more stylish hot weather moderation’s.

PEAK ORGANIC SUMMER SESSION ALE

On tap at Track 84, dry pale wheat ale gets hybridized with West Coast pale ale styling for moderate summertime refresher. Musty raw-honeyed graining and resinous Amarillo hop bittering saddle lemony grapefruit-peeled orange rind, pineapple and peach illusions. Leathery hay-barnyard-alfalfa acridity and herbal peppercorn-lemongrass snip add depth to approachable fare. In bottle, happily predictable fare gains perky lemon zest spritz and mild white peppering above rye-breaded nicety.

SARANAC SUMMER ALE

Brisk medium-bodied summer refresher (circa 2011) maintains syrupy peach-lacquered apricot tang above fizzy hop pep to honeyed wheat spine. Sweet lemonade whim caresses sunny Belgian witbier-like citron twist at midst. Herbal-spiced coriander, ginger, lemongrass, menthol, spearmint, and eucalyptus illusions make small cameos. A strapping seasonal bettering most delicate summertime lightweights.
