Ellicottville CATT County Cuvee
Another beer I ordered on a recent visit to Ellicottville Brewing Company was the CATT County Cuvee. The beer pours a golden color with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma consists of banana, orange, and vanilla. While those flavors are detectable, the aroma is faint and light. The taste is smooth and sweet with a large orange and vanilla profile. Honey, banana, and pepper also provide some accents. The finish brings out dry oak and sweet vanilla flavors. The alcohol content is 8.5% ABV. This was a solid beer with plenty of flavors and without an alcohol burn on the tongue, so beware of the 8.5%.
