Brewery Ommegang Releases Spring Seasonal
With our without spring weather, spring is here, and that means a number of our central New York breweries are offering spring seasonal beers. Brewery Ommegang in nearby Cooperstown, New York has just released its spring brew: "Glimmerglass".
Here's what Glimmerglass Ale is all about, according to ommegang.com:
"Brewery Ommegang’s bright, new Glimmerglass debuts to mark the return of spring
The new spring Saison is the fourth seasonal offer for the brewery (following Scythe & Sickle, Fleur de Houblon, and Adoration) and pays homage to Cooperstown’s pristine Otsego Lake.
Glimmerglass is brewed with white wheat, hopped with Bravo, Styrian Golding, Columbus and Cascade hops, and spiced with pink peppercorns and sweet orange peel. Fermented with a classic saison yeast strain and bottle conditioned with Ommegang’s house yeast, Glimmerglass has fruity aromas of pear, apple and slight citrus balanced with a delicate floral hop character and a touch of spiciness. The taste is clean with pronounced fruit flavors and delicate bready malt following by welcomed spicing. A crisp finish offers lingering yet subtle notes of yeast and touches of fruity pepper.
Glimmerglass is available now for a limited time on draft and in 12 oz. four-packs."
