Great Divide Colette Farmhouse Ale

I have not been a fan of the French, generally adopting Groundskeeper Willie’s view of them, but I am starting to rethink my stance.  They do wonderful things with cheese, and French cooking is the gold standard against which all other cuisines are measured.  French movies are great, as are French actresses. And while French wines are world renowned, French beers are often overlooked.  They can be great, even if they owe more to Belgian traditions than French ones.  The Colette Farmhouse Ale by Great Divide is classic French Farmhouse Ale. Pale yellow and cloudy, with a fluffy meringue head, this is grassy, yeasty and herbal, slightly peppery, and light and refreshing.  I enjoyed the hell out of this beer, 7.5/10, so much so that I am thinking about making this the summer of saisons.
