Poured from the bottle a cloudy lemon yellow with one finger of bright white head. sheets of sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma of lemon zest, yeast, light funk notes and coriander.

The taste was less pronounce than the aroma. Light lemon and coriander notes upfront followed by Belgian yeast and fresh earth. Mild medicinal notes to the finish.

Medium bodied and dry with a light-to-moderate carbonation.

This is a beer I've wanted to try for a while. It's a solid Saison from the folks at Brooklyn.
