Poured from the bottle a cloudy lemon yellow with one finger of bright white head. sheets of sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma of lemon zest, yeast, light funk notes and coriander.

The taste was less pronounce than the aroma. Light lemon and coriander notes upfront followed by Belgian yeast and fresh earth. Mild medicinal notes to the finish.

Medium bodied and dry with a light-to-moderate carbonation.

This is a beer I've wanted to try for a while. It's a solid Saison from the folks at Brooklyn.

Well its Memorial Day in America and whats memorial Day unless one tries a new beer. No BBQ but beer today. Who needs BBQ when u have beer? Not me.

So w/o further ado:

Appearance - Nothing Impressive. Looks like an Ale

Smell - Nothing special. Smells like an Ale.

Taste - Surprisingly, pretty decent. Now, I dont want to be a snob but I would prefer DT or Sophie to this. As such, probably wouldnt buy again.

Nice to try once. But it just seems like for a Farmhouse Ale...its a shadow of a Belgian Ale. I guess maybe its me. i prefer Belgian ale to Farmhouse Ale.
