3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy very light straw yellow color with a densely packed white sudsy foamy sticky head. Aroma is nice, subtle and balanced, clean and freshly stinky, lemon, lemon grass, grass, quite a bit of soap, nice. Alcohol plays a bit more part in this beer than it probably needs, although it is very well attenuated as a saison should be, biscuity, lemon, stinky green grass, could use a bit more yeast character and acidity, really dry, soda like, nice amount of bitterness, like tonic water, quinine, tastes like sorachi ace alright, but could definitely use more acidity. Light bodied, with ample tightly packed corse fizzy carbonation. Lemon cookie lacking acidity, bone dry. Has a bit of a white-wine taste.

Big white lacy head. Spicy aroma. Medium yellow body. Highly drinkable. Good brew. Not sure if it’s worth the $15 I paid for this bottle though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep, cloudy lemon orange with a pleasant aroma of spring lemon, light champagne soap, A nice white cloud top head sits contently atop the beer. Notes of citrusy clover and sweet flowers swirl around the nose as well. Flavor is floral lemon peel, light grapefruit, rosy hay, and barn dust. Tingly and fluffy on the tongue. Excellent beer; very well made.

This beer pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head. The aromas are light vinegar, lemon zest and black pepper. The mouthfeel is dry with a slight spiciness. This was a great beer! Cheers!

Amazing aroma, huge grapefruit hops and citrusy spice. Normal look, but exceptional taste. Hop resins with traditional spicy saison flavours. Sparkling palate, semi-dry. Love the Sorachi hop, great beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with a couple inch frothy white head. Head retention is excellent, with a decent amount of lacing too. Aroma is herbal and spicy hops, and some lemon peel. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but there’s the addition of some grain/bready malt and peppery spice. There’s also a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium with high but soft carbonation. The soft carbonation works great for this brew and makes it smooth and easy to drink. A pretty enjoyable brew overall, Brooklyn has a winner with this one!

Low marks on the nose, ’cause there was not alot going on there, but everything else was nearly perfect. A head that looked like it would float a coin. Smooth palate with the perfect dryness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from Spirits Red Bank. Poured an okay looking chill hazed light golden straw colored body underneath a large bubbly white head. Aroma is intriguing to say the least...yeast, pepper, spruce needles, citrus, and a bit of funk. The body is medium to fuller with a slightly dry finish and slightly bubbly carbonation. Flavors of funk, spice, spruce, citrus, white pepper and yeast. Really interesting beer that I thoroughly enjoyed.
