4.38/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Big fluffy, creamy white head. Settles in 5 minutes to thin, light, but persistent head. Little lacing.
Light slightly cloudy yellow-gold.
Aroma: Earthy, slightly herbal, flowery, creamy (Belgian yeast), grainy. Pale malt. Hops are spicy orange, with a minor note of lime & grapefruit.
Taste: Big, full, round, dry, grainy, slightly creamy.
Round earthy hops that finish piney & fine grained.
Hops are not super powerful, but the fine bitterness stays with you almost like tannin in a red wine. Gives it a seemingly very dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Big & flavorful. Packed with flavor, in fact, but not at all heavy.
Drinkability: Fairly light on it's feet for a Saison so stuffed with flavor.
This might be one to age 12 - 30 months to see some interesting things on the palate. Not sure nose would age quite as well.
Bravo again, Brooklyn!

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.
