Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass. It pours a beautiful slightly hazy straw color with a thick bright white head that settles into a thin cap.

The smell is lemon citrus with a hint of grass. These is a slight pleasant funk. The taste reminds me of being in a field on a summer morning. There is a light sweetness at the start with a blast of lemon from the hops and some fruitiness. The finish is clean, dry and refreshing. There's a hint of a pepper with pleasant alcohol warmth. This is an excellent beer.

Had this on tap at the Brooklyn Brewery last fall. It poured just like a saison should - light gold with light froth. The smell straight from the tap was a lemon explosion. Enjoyable on a hot summer day I would presume. The taste was clean with some fruits hidden, like lemon and pear. The mouthfeel was dry right from the start but the carbonation was medium.
This beer is all about the Sorachi Ace hops. It showcases them deliciously and refreshingly.
