Poured from a 750ml brown bottle.
Pours a nice hazy golden orange color. Nice thick foamy head which dissipates into a thin layer of foam.
Aroma is wonderful. There is a nice pleasant citrus smell, very similar to mandarin oranges. There is also a nice floral aroma from the hops. There is also a nice malty aroma with some yeast notes coming through. There is some fruity smells as well, grapefruit and an apple like smell.
Taste is very good. Some nice fruit flavors, mainly a citrusy flavor, like grapefruit, also some apple and pear flavors coming out. The hops are present, but seem hidden to me. Can taste a bit of yeast too and some malts. A bit of spiciness on the finish with some moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is good, carbonation is just right. Drinkability is very good too.
In my opinion this is the best offering from Brooklyn Brewery. Hats off to Garrett Oliver.

A: Foggy golden with tons of fine carbonation, 3 fingers of light yellow tinged white head. Good retention.
S: Sweet and caramel like, light fruity and floral qualities. Daisies, and cantelope.
T: Belgian yeast, light lemon tartness, la fair amount of sweetness, sight bitterness on the finish. Really hides the alcohol, and is much like a white wine in dryness. Sharp cheddar like quality.
M: A lot of fine bubbled carbonation, a little thickness to the body, but it comes across as light, airy and dry. Really well done.
O: An excellent brew. Great mouth feel, very mellow in taste, definitely a Belgian style beer. Bought in Boca Raton, drank on Deerfield Beach, July 15, 2014.
