Well its Memorial Day in America and whats memorial Day unless one tries a new beer. No BBQ but beer today. Who needs BBQ when u have beer? Not me.

So w/o further ado:

Appearance - Nothing Impressive. Looks like an Ale

Smell - Nothing special. Smells like an Ale.

Taste - Surprisingly, pretty decent. Now, I dont want to be a snob but I would prefer DT or Sophie to this. As such, probably wouldnt buy again.

Nice to try once. But it just seems like for a Farmhouse Ale...its a shadow of a Belgian Ale. I guess maybe its me. i prefer Belgian ale to Farmhouse Ale.

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)
