North Coast 25th Anniversary Ale (La Merle)

RateBeer Rating, Style and Glass: 89, Saison, tulip
ABV, Volume & Calories: 7.3 % in 16.9 fl oz. estimated at 200 C
Purchased at: Canal’s in Burlington, NJ (thanks for the ladder walk, Mike) for $7.12

Aroma: champagne, apple, soapy, licorice. 8 out of 10.

Visuals: slightly cloudy, golden, bright white, persistent head, thick, foamy lace, best lace ever. 5 out of 5.

Taste: apple, cherry, grape, chemical finish, a bit wet, medium craft. 7 out of 10.

Palate: foamy, surf, bubbly, highly carbonated, medium finish. 4 out of 5.

Overall: Visually appealing. Rather chemical finish, and a bit soapy. I would not seek it out again, though it was not bad. It seemed a bit more commercial than craft. 16 out of 20.
