Served in a chalice.

A: Pours a honey gold color with a short tan head that lasts for a few minutes before completely vanishing, leaving no lace.

S: Light aroma, smells of grass, lemon peels, wheat, hops

T: Smooth and slightly sweet, slight tinge of hops at the finish, as I expect from a saison. Would've expected a bit more hops though.

O: Overall this was a great rendition of the Saison. Great beer from Brooklyn.
