4.5/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Color- frosty gold. Huge head.

Aroma- floral notes dominate with hint of hops and confectioner's sugar.

Taste- Starts with a lackluster introduction but quickly recovers with a dry and fruity mid body with hints of black pepper and finishes with a classic dry sassion and super smooth beauty. Would pair well with cornish game hen. Tasted on 10/24/2010 and 5/24/14. On 5/24/2014 we compared this head to head with Prairie Ale from Krebs, and Brooklyn came out ahead.

Poured from corked 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass)

Serving type: bottle
