Out of a 750ml corked and caged bottle. Pours a slightly hazy honey straw color with a huge pure white head that slowly settles leaving some thick lacing and a chunky cap. The aroma is sweet and spicy. Light pale malt, candi sugar, white pepper, clove, and wild flowers. Good phenolic aromas from the yeast. The taste is of the candi sugar, clove, coriander and pepper. Then comes the unique hop flavor. A sugar laced lemon flavor comes through imparting a dry and slightly tart note. It has some grassy/hay like flavors as well. The yeasty flavors don't come out as strong as it did in the aroma. The feel is light and extremely fizzy, sweet yet dry, finishes balanced. Not a traditional saison. I find that a lot of the "funk" "tart" flavors comes from the hops. The beer has a good belgian base but the hops make it grassy, tart, and something that you can sense was made in a farmhouse. Another great brooklyn beer. Hopefully this is a keeper.
