A: Giant, 3+ finger head on a straw colored beer. The Head is fed by bubbles from the bottom of the glass, making it last damn near forever.

S: Spicy, yeasty. Wet hay, earthy yeast a little bit of lemon.

T: Very dry. Lots of yeast, earthy with floral hops on the end.

M: Crisp, dry.

O: A damn good beer, and a damn good saison. nice balance of flavors.

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.
