4.43/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750 ml. bottle, poured into a tulip glass.

A: This beer pours a deep, hazy golden hue with a huge, frothy white head that seems to be going nowhere but up. The carbonation is quite lively, and sticky lace clings to every side of the glass.

S: cracker-like malt notes up front are soon dominated by hints of lemongrass, apple, and a hint of earth and spice. Slightly floral on the back end.

T: Sorachi hops make their presence known right off the bat. Lemon, along with other citrus flavors combine with hints of pear, apple, and spice. Some biscuit and honey-like malt shows in the middle, followed by a faintly musty, earthy character. Finish is quite dry, with floral, grassy notes.

Notes: This beer is a rock star! Well-balanced, with just enough body and a ton of flavor. The unique hop variety adds so much to the character of the brew. With all that said, if I were to have tasted this blind, I could almost swear there would be a little white ghost on the label. Well done, Brooklyn!

4.14/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Lemony like lemon juice, cloudy but with lots of carbonation, and 4 fingers of off white foamy head.

S: Lemon, lemon zest, vitamin c (non chewable) or aspirin. Belgian yeasts, dill pickle, very light.

T: Lightly sweetened lemonade but without the same acidity so more like a lemon drink but without the sweetness, dill as in the herb, vitamin c or aspirin. Certainly children’s aspirin. Not getting the alcohol which is great for more than 7% ABV.

M: Light body, lots of foamy carbonation, dry finish.

O: Excellent brew. Less is more as far as flavor, alcohol level and weightiness. This is more because of its light feel, less sweetness, dry character, and overall light herbal quality. Bought in Savannah, drank in Cocoa Beach July 10th, 2014.
