look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy lemon color with a large foamy white head. Nice retention and lacing. The aroma has lemon, yeast, phenols, cloves, and smells like like it may be somewhat sweet.

The taste has lemon, pepper, yeast, cloves, phenols, and a little biscuit malt. Has a light amount of sweetness to it. The sweetness is balanced out by the pepper flavor. Some of the flavors are lighter than the aroma would suggest.

Light bodied, decent carbonation. Not as dry of a feel as I expected. This is a nice Saison, and features some of my favorite bottle artwork. Who doesn't like having the Ace of Diamonds with the Brooklyn Brewery logo in the middle of it? Instant classic.
