In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Cape May Brewing Harvest Ale

Aroma: “Nice saison esters. Spicy and herbal hops, corn tortillas, pepper, peach, bubblegum esters, clove phenols, and white wine. The grape must contribution complements fruity esters.”

Flavor: “Some bready malt character comes through with notes of banana. Grape must character is present but dry in character, and this adds a slight sweetness but not much. Hints of fruit—apple and peach—with a strong fermentation character and lightly tart in finish.”

Overall: “Enjoyable, solid saison, and the grape character added some complexity and tannic qualities.”
