Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. I’m always intrigued when Brooklyn comes out with these little gems, but rarely impressed. This one has a lot of bubble gum in the nose and a slight yeastiness. The flavor is full on Belgian yeast notes with graham crackers and a weird floral note on the back end. Slightly oily on the palate. All those unique additions? Didn’t come through for me. This is one mystery I won’t be trying to solve again.

Tap East Birthday Bash. Keg. Light haze on this gold beer, no real head. Sweet malt with a little lactose and cream. Light sweet dried fruits. Definite Parma Violets which blend well with the smooth orange - tangerine hops. Whisper of spice. Light white flowers and a touch of sherbet candy. A touch of banane and bubblegum esters before the smooth finish. Complex, sweet and tasty.
