3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An unusual saison, this is clean rather than funky and, initially, at least as sweet as tart or bitter
Lively high carbonation works well with the champagne like dry finish and light body.
Floral and lemony.

Pours a dirty brownish yellow with little to no head. Has s light grassy aroma. Taste is mostly lemon grass with some spicy pepper. Not too overpowering but lingering flavors. OK but not really for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska @ Backstage, Varberg. Oklar guldfärgad med ett vackert vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av citron, örter, gräs och kryddor. Härligt torr munkänsla. Fruktig och kryddig avslutning. Just som man nästan gett upp hoppet om Brooklyn Brewery...

Bottle from wine warehouse. I suppose for years I thought I tried this one and that's why haven't picked it up, but apparently not so here we go. Pours hazy golden with the small white head. Aroma of lemon, bubblegum, indiscernible fruit. Taste is a mild soap, fruit, grasses. This is tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from LCBO. BB Nov 2018. Pours barely translucent with big white head that fizzes off quickly. The aroma is strangely pickled cucumbery and citric, the Sorachi Ace is definitely playing leading role here. Can’t say I’m enjoying it too much but I do somewhat like it in a kinky way. Tastes juicy, weird limey? bitter and salty notes. Pretty malty too. Super crisp on the palate. Lightish medium body. Finishes not exactly ’crackingly’ or bone dry, but dry enough. Was expecting it to be better to be honest. It’s not a background beer as I like my Saisons, it definitely begs for attention.

Hazy golden yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of yeast, spices, grains wheat and lemon. Taste of yeast, grains, peppercorn, lemon zest and hops. Medium bodied, higher champagne like carbonation, crisp peppery mouthfeel, dry finish, nicely balanced.

Pours a hazy orangish/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste. Like a mellow smooth IPA. Good Beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to celebrate H's third child. Light honey colour with minimal white head. Unusual aromas of eucalyptus, lemon rind and pith, along with some spicy hop. Similarly unusual flavours of eucalyptus, honey, lemon rind and pith, spicy hop finish. Very dry start, slightly under carbonated, simplistic structure. Quite a highly rated beer, but it doesn't have much depth in its structure to excite me.
