4 oz. sample at Ale Yeah! Light yellow pour, with a big, frothy, beige head. The aroma is lemons, hay, cereals, light barnyard funk, and honeysuckle. Very sweet flavor, with a little tartness. Light to medium body, bubbly and effervescent, and crisp, with a clean finish. Overall, this is a nice, refreshing, and flavorful beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
