4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into goblet from a bomber that I aged for nearly two years.

Pours a slightly hazy dull golden yellow with lingering head. Smells deeply of citrus in a number of dimensions, both hops and lemon/lemon candy. Even subtle hints of vanilla and honey come through.

Has a robust almost slightly creamy first sip exploding with flavors of citrus, yeast and honey. A champagne like snap occurs on the tongue and it starts to mellow and give way to a slight bitterness and eventually dryness.

The champagne yeast is an interesting take on this one. It "brightens" up your traditional saison in a sense without getting into anything too fruity. Definitely tastes like summer in a glass or in some sense maybe even late summer since the bitter cold is usually around the corner.

I'm probably too ebullient in my review but Brooklyn seriously nails it on their large format bottles.

4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Straight pour from 750ml C&C bottle to an oversized wineglass (HF stemware). Bottling date of January 24, 2012 printed in black ink in a little square above and to the left of the barcode on the back label (“0242”).

Appearance (4.5): Pretty aggressive head on this beer, rising to 3-4 fingers of bone-white foam composed of very fine bubbles, and fading eventually to a haze on the surface of the body and a wide, sticky ring around the glass at the edges. The body is a perfectly hazy honey-gold, not murky but definitely not clear—perfect body appearance! I’d just like some more lacing, but that’s all I can complain about.

Smell (4.0): Classic saison yeast in the nose: some earthy, hay-like characteristics, a little musty but not in a “funky” way—just lightly earthy and spicy, with the scent of straw. This is pretty aromatic, actually, and there is just a subtle hint of snappy lemon in the nose, like lemonade very light on the sugar.

Taste (4.5): And then there’s the lemon. Bright, snappy, bitter in a citrus-sour kind of way, and slightly grassy—but the distinctly fruity side of lemon comes through here, fruity in the way lemon-flavored icing can be. But there’s a definite citrus pith bitterness to this, too, helping to cut through the (mild) sweetness of the hops and the earthy, slightly spicy malt body. Speaking of which, the malts are downplayed, and rightfully so: biscuity but very light, like fresh white bread, but it’s easily lost in the back-and-forth between the lemony hops and the slightly spicy, earthy yeast note. A bit of coriander and clove, just a bit of white pepper, but mainly subtle and earthy. No alcohol detectable.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Surprisingly understated here, it’s lush and well-carbonated but not prickly at any point—just smooth, foamy, and slightly numbing. Light-bodied but not watery, but the dry finish makes this feel very quenching . . . damn.

Overall (4.5): The more I think about it, the more I realize how well-rounded this beer is. My only personal complaints are that I could always go for more lacing and I’m a fan of moderate, musty funk—this is pretty traditional, in terms of the yeast character. Though, it’s clear they picked a pretty refined strain for this, given the surprisingly nuanced mouthfeel and unique but not overpowering yeast note on the palate. And then the hops. This is a very unique, VERY successful pairing of hops and beer style, and to be honest I’m amazed at how long they’ve held on. Great job, Brooklyn! Now if I could just get this and Local 1 in a slightly smaller package . . . :-)

4.15/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

No freshness date. Caged and corked.

Pours a hazy golden yellow-orange color with a coarse head boasting half-decent retention. Looks elegant.

Lovely dashed spicing. Peppery and coriander aromas with some lemony hops and papery yeast. Well-balanced aroma. Tidbits of orange peel detectable, as well.

Lemony and funky with dusty yeast residuals. Offering many characteristics from Bretty BPAs, it's this with a magnitude of yeast cake and spice rack array. Zesty and semi-hoppy with a bubbly dry bitterness. Sparkling white wine and sea salt. Flaked wheat, white pepper, and coriander.

Very spritzy--high carbonation. Pushes and rolls over all of the spice notes that never become too intense. The body is pretty simple; a zippy dry medium-light.

All about balance (not intensity) on this one. A delicate beer from Garrett Oliver and Brooklyn Brewery. I had waited much too long to finally give this one a go. Possibly my first time around with Sorachi Ace hops. A delicious drink and very much recommended.

Pretty good beer, but hardly an exceptional Saison. Looks the part. Big delicately bubbling white head. Good retention and lacing.

Pleasant aroma, but did not stand up to the marinaded chicken and steak that came off the grill. Most of the good Sasions I have enjoyed were paired with dinner. The flavor and aroma usually stood out.

The aroma and taste featured some lemon zest and mild hoppiness. The earthy, funky flavor I usually associate with Saisons was not there.

Mouthfeel was good. Rich and crisp. A very pleasant drinking experience but not a great Saison.

Bottle opened on 6.4.12.

A - Pours a hazy, dark yellow with a large fluffy off-white head. Good retention.

S - Hoppy grass, citrus, subtle spices. All are pretty mild.

T - Sharp lemon at first, then some hoppy citrus and Belgian yeast and spice.

D - Good carbonation and a very light body.

O - A hoppy saison, but not as hoppy as I was expecting.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle thanks to Adam@Platinum Liquor.

Orange-straw, just barely hazed. Two finger pillowy white head that falls relatively quickly, sans lace, to a raised ring and film. Rather rapid bead.

The signature pulped banana and lemon custard Sorachi notes are there, but surprisingly don't dominate. The spicy, doughy Saison yeast character shines through nicely with marmalade, bitter citrus pith and mild funk. Solid nose.

Sorachi leads the flavours a little more, but quickly coalesces with the now sour/bitter citric notes, bay leaf and continental parsley into a satisfyingly crisp profile.

Lightish body, but aggressive carbonation makes it very busy for the palate. Moderately tart on the mid and rear.

Great concept and execution. I ordinarily find Sorachi too domineering in Pale Ales / IPAs, however the more aggressive Saison yeast tames it nicely.

4/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a tight, frothy head that extends up over the edge of the pint glass. Nevertheless, a fine looking beverage with drippy lace all the way down the glass.

Aromas begin with slight floral but much more solid lemongrass hops over a solid pilsner slightly sweeet malt base. Increased juicy, zesty citrus and fresh herbs at it warms a bit.

The tastes begin with sweet, juicy lemon and a certain soft, creamy, almost honey-like flavor, coupled with the pilsner maltiness. Beglian yeast adds flavors of biscuit dough, fresh herbs, clove and pear. Overall phenolics are light.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation; slightly less than I expected for the style but given the higher than normal ABV for the style it is acceptable. Finish is minorly bitter and dry.

Overall this is a very good Saison and I was pleasantly surprised because I am normally not a fan of the style. Usually they are too yeasty and herbal forward for my tastes but the Sorachi Ace lemony hops make this a winner for me. Worth a go on draft or in the bottle. I think this is year round now but try to find a fresh bottle if possible the get the freshest hop characteristics.

Not sure of the age on this bottle but it's def got some age on it, got it as a gift from the father of one of the assistant brewers. Hazy and faded orange marmalade color. Massive bright white head which dies kind of quickly. Sweet citric lemon grass nose. Otherwise pretty subtle nose.

Pretty nice tasting beer. Sweet belgian candy up front. Slight medicinal flavors, all well blended. Touches of banana and clove with lemon grass and citrus as the dominant flavors. Semi-spicy yeast bite on the finish. Touches of meaty fruit such as apples and pears. Delicious yet palate cleansing. Lots of brisk carbonation.

Just needs a bit more tartness.

I usually am not the biggest fan of brooklyn but this is pretty damn good.

An even older bottle than the last one . I tried. This really has mellowed out. bit phenolic and medicinal. Very herbal and grassy. its pretty good

Pours a golden yellow with 2 " brilliant white head. High carbonation you expect from a Saigon.

Smell is heavy on citrus and less barnyard than accustomed to for the style. Certainly a lighter crisper taste as well which my ignorance will attribute to the sorachi hops.

If you are looking for more earthy Saison this probably isn't for you but a very nice beer in many respects.

A- Initially very clear, although topped off with a bit of the bottled yeast. Golden color, very carbonated, looks refreshing, although wasn't expecting so much carbonation.
S- Belgian aroma, spicy clove, and yes, some lemon citrus. Nothing very special here, but nothing bad either.
T- The lemongrass from the sorachi comes though first, tangy. The yeast flavor doesn't come out very much against the hops. Sweet, long finish. Refreshing. Very good. Not as interesting as I was expecting
M- Light, crisp, very bubbly. Like a champagne I'd say.
O- A refreshing summer beer, an interesting aroma and flavor, nothing amazing, but definitely solid.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into 15 oz. gold-rimmed Brooklyn Brewery-branded stemware.

Pours an attractive hazy gold with a huge pillowy three finger clean white head that has almost supernatural retention. Leaves behind considerable lacing. Pleasant smells of bread and slight citrus dominate. Mild grassy and citrus flavors combine with an exceptionally creamy mouthfeel that finishes dry with just the right hint of spice. The refreshing flavors make this beer a joy to the tastebuds and the quinntesential warm weather saison.

Truly a world class beer and one of the most original and highest quality saisons brewed by a American craft brewery. A must try.

It's a single hop saison, germanpilsner malts, with spices, golden farmhouse ale. Has a 7.6% etoh. Reminds me of honey basil from berkley & saison du buff from dogfish. It would be great with food. My 1st time having it is @ pig & fish in rehoboth for $i a 16oz glass.

@ The Federal

Slightly hazy pale yellow color with a tight, frothy head that extends up over the edge of the pint glass. Had this been served in a larger tulip glass or something similar, I think the overall appearance would have been more impressive. Nevertheless, a fine looking beverage with drippy lace all the way down the glass. Perfumy floral and lemongrass aromas over a solid pilsner malt base. Increased juicy, zesty citrus and fresh herbs at it warms a bit. Sweet, juicy lemon and a certain soft, creamy, almost honey-like character in the mouth with, again, a nice pale malt presence. Dough, fresh herbs, clove, pear, and cedar. Overall phenolics are light. Very flavorful, yet soft and smooth. Medium bodied and fairly well carbonated. Properly bitter and dry. I've had this before, but don't remember being this impressed. Well done.

A-Pours a hazy golden color. Pretty white cap. Head retains well and leaves misty lacing. Ambient coloring of the body.

S-Smells absolutely delicious. It smells so much like a Piña Colada. Coconuts and grassy hoppiness. A very slight whiff of funk. The Piña Colada aroma is magnificent.

T-Tastes a lot like NEBCO's Gold Stock Ale (one of my all time favorites by the way). That super unique pineapple flavor is supremely delicious. Nice grassiness. Lemon zest, light funk and spice. Still tastes like a Piña Colada in my opinion.

M-Feels lighter that the ABV would allow you to believe. Nice, crisp carbonation. Light bitterness. Great feel.

O/D-I truly wish I didn't wait so long to try this. So unique. It reminds me of a slightly less perfect version of one of my perhaps Top 5 favorite beers. Plenty to love about this beer.

Ive been hanging to try this as i love the Sorachi Ace Hop and it pours a hazy yellow golden hue which leaves a two finger head that stays and leaves sporadic lacing,the smell is Sorachi all over with aromas of lemon sherbet,orange leaves,lavender and freshly cut limes,the mouthfeel is smooth,medium bodied and creamy with tastes of lime zest,sherbet,mandarins,champagne and finished with a creamy lemon cheesecake bittersweetness that makes me want another sip and overall im abit biased as i love this hop but it certainly suits the Saison Style and i love this drop definately something id buy again that be perfect with seafood cheers.

Corked and caged bottle from the shop. Pours a light golden color, slightly hazy, and with a big frothy white head. Aroma of farmhouse yeast, funk, belgian influences, and some interesting spicy hops mixed in with the funk. Flavor is belgian yeast, spice, some pine, a good bit of light grass, and a dry finish. Light mouthfeel and heavy carbonation, easy drinking, and rather refreshing. Not one I would go grab again, but I am glad I got to try it. Very nice.

Poured from 750ml corked and caged bottle.

A. Poured 3 finger head. Good retention. Moderate lacing. Color is hazy golden yellow.

S. Belgian yeast, lemon, citrus, earthy, a little sour, and a little funk. Some spices, a little white pepper. Good smelling saison. Can't say that I distinguish a lot of Sorachi Ace hop smell.

T. Nice taste. Nice citrusy lemon flavor, maybe a litte apricot even. Might be the Sorachi Ace I am tasting for the first time. A little bit of spice on the back of the tongue. Pretty nice fruity taste. A bit of belgian yeast, ans some funkiness are there in the background. Maybe one of the fruitier tasting Saisons that I have had. Taste goes, sweet, fruit, spice.

M. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Finishes with just a touch of sweetness, otherwise drinks pretty dry.

O. Nice Saison. A little different than most. A touch sweeter and fruitier, which worked for me. Saison is one of my favorite styles, and this is a beer I would get again.

Pours a huge 2 inch ultra white head. Body is a hazy, lemon-yellow color. Lots of bubbles and carbonation, head retention and lacing are great.

First smell is of spicy yeast, peppercorns, and clove. Also hints of straw malt and lemongrass. Hops are really light and alcohol isn't detected.

Taste is light and crisp, with lots of spice and pepper bite. A lemony twang is also in the mix, with a slight alcohol aftertaste. Not getting much hops, some citrus, light malts round out the beer.

Mouthfeel is light, highly carbonated, and astringent. Head contributed a little to the beer.

Overall this is a semi sessionable, refreshing beer. Would pair great with salads or lemongrass chicken/asian food. Not my favorite style but its a solid beer and glad I tried it.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: A light amber which comes off slightly and I do mean slightly hazy, (white) head rising to maybe a 1/4" after a gentle pour.

Smell: A light citrus smell, smelling it before tasting it you think automatically it would come off bitter.

Taste: Upon tasting this I seriously can feel the complexity of the beer. Light lemon which comes off peppery and a tad sweet(hints of banana peel). Then again I feel the yeast and bitterness.

Mouth: Definitely a medium to full, and after taste that just stick like feathers to tar.

Overall: A bought a beer that scream bang, I absolutely love it. So much going on and no complaints in my department. It delivers and that's what counts. Salud!

4.38/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a large snifter glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As poured the beer is a hazed golden apricot or salmon color with a fluffy 1” off-white head that recedes very slowly. As the head begins to recede it leaves lots of irregular patches, partial rings and spider-web like lines of lacing Sipping leaves some large patches of foam that cling to the sides of the glass. There is a thin layer of foam on the surface of the liquid to the very end of the beer and even then sipping leaves scattered speckles of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.

Smell: The aroma is very much the spicy lemongrass and lemon zest expected from the brewery’s description. While the aroma is definitely filled with the hops, they are backed up with some of the Belgian yeast character as well. I also think there is a bit of mustiness mixed in here as well.

Taste: The flavor is filled with rich light malt (probably Pils malt) and yeast flavors but without a lot of sweetness. There is some spiciness and bitterness from the hops that remains in the background without becoming overly dominating. The lemon zest is clearly present here as the focus of the show, but it also plays nicely with a hint of sweetness from the malt and with some of the flavors from the yeast.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and is clean and crisp but with gentle and ample carbonation. The finish is moderately long and begins with a touch of bitterness from the hops that gets briefly replaced by a bit of sweetness from the malt. However, that hint of sweetness quickly disappears in the long and quite dry finish that fades softly away to leave a trace of bitter dryness so that the back of the mouth is ready and waiting for the next sip.

Drinkability and Overall Impression: Besides being an interesting look at a new hop this beer is a very drinkable one that leaves me wanting more. While I’ll not be buying this one a lot, I do plan on adding a few to my shopping list periodically as I think it is quite nice but also should pair well with a nice serving of grilled salmon. My overall impression is that this is a well made beer that I’m pleased to have had and even more pleased that the Brewery has decided to make it a regular offering so I can have it again.

Nice, bubbly head after the first pour. Every pour after that, lightning fast head and foam. Hazey sunshine color with a copper tone. Great bubbling.

Effervescent, noce tickling aroma of mildly toasted barley. Nice delicate lemony hop aroma. A little chalky dry, fruity yeast aroma as well.

Bright malt and hop flavor bill from start to finish. Taste like sunshine and a dash of lemons. Chalky palate, but effervescent and bubbly.

This beer tastes and feels great!

750ml bottle.

Pours hazy straw with a two inch-plus head of dense white. Shards of thick lacing and a solid coating on the surface for the duration.

Aromatics lead off with pears, cut grass, apples, cloves, and bubblegum. A hint of lemon pulp and mint follow through.

Light bodied with a crisp, pillowy mouthfeel.

Biscuity malt runs under spicy, clovey yeast with green apples and pears. Hints of peaches, wet hay, honey, and citrus follow through.

Finishes with a mild bitterness,and a dryness beyond a tropical, juicy fairwell.

Nice beer, would love to try this on a dry-hopped cask or a fresh keg.
