4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light citrus aroma. Pours a honey color with a bright white, airy head. Taste is light starting with a delicate wheat moving into a distinct grapefruit finish. Light body with a thin texture and fizzy carbonation. The ideal summer beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours with a hazed vibrant yellow body with amazing retention and lace that sticks to the glass like foamy glue. A ring per sip. Aroma is very fragrant, perfume, lemon, hoppy, sharply spicy and lemon hop character, citrus zest, vanilla and herbs (provencal herbs). Lightly peppery. Taste is very dry, lemon, herbal, bitter, vanilla and dry grain. Very lively bubbles, dry, uplifting. One of the best products that I have had from Brooklyn. An excellent saison, that is right up my alley (a hoppy or bretted saison that smacks you in the face with flavor, yet is astonishingly drinkable and refreshing)!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was surprised to see this sitting on the shelf in Dallas so I had to pick on up. Good thing I did because it was very good.
The beer pours a hazy gold color with a white head. The aroma is strong lemon with some wheat and Belgian yeast. The flavor is lemons with some oranges. I also get some wheat, yeast and grassy hops. Low to medium bitterness. Very soft, creamy mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation. A very good saison.

Grapefruit peel, lime peel, and lavender bouquet. Cloudy golden, thick head, good lacing. Lavender and lime peel flavor. Very unique. Not my favorite tasting beer, but unlike anything else.

Pours pale gold into a snifter. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Lemon joy aromas. Dry and sweet upfront turning slightly sour lemon and yeast in the lasting, flowery bitter finish.

gave a clear yellow-gold pour with a large white head, lots of effervescence n the glass, left decent white bubbled lacing on the sides of the glass that flowed away after a moment,
this ale had bright lemon citrus aromas with flowers, dry yeast, a light pear sweetness with faint malt, white sugar, herbal and small earthy aroma,
there were flavors of lemon citrus, light fruit and faint white sugar, light dry pale malt, finish is dry and crisp with some floral herbs after the finish,
mouth feel is light and feels dry on the palate, finish is light and crisp,
the lemon and floral herbal character of the beer really stands out, I thought these distinctions were interesting.
