One of my new favorite saisons. Nice lemongrass taste and smell with a lot of carbonation. Good summer beer.

750ml bottle poured into shaker pint. Gushing foamy white head towers over clear yellow liquid. Some lacing is left after it settles. Aroma is of lemons, lemongrass, hay, grass, white pepper, spice, and cracker. Taste follows with the lemon flavors dominating and cracker-dry malts coming on the finish. A light body that’s inflated by the foamy mouth-filling foam, crisp and slightly creamy texture, highly carbonated, dry finish.

Very interesting flavor. Floral, tropical. Tried at a beer fest and had to buy some. A good type of hop to try.

First and very disappointing beer I've tried from Brooklyn. Tasted very little citrus and was overwhelmed by the watered down taste of a Bud Light.
