Sample at Gallo’s tap room. The beer is a murky orange color with a medium off-white head. Citrus, pear and yeast in the nose. Light body with flavors of zesty oranges, herbs and yeast. Some breadiness too. The finish is fruity and I caught a distinct bourbon note on the exhale in the aftertaste. Above average overall.

Thanks to Brother John from Ember Gastropub I got to enjoy a bottle. I’m not a huge fan of this style but, this one is fantastic. Bready aromas and yeast on the pour with an effervescent quality. Lemony, grassy, sweet, some funk, and a herbal element. Not sure about the "new" hop’s role in this refreshing brew. Brooklyn has enticed me to buy this beer again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden straw, quite hazy, white head.
Very spicy, herbal aromas. Citrus peel, coriander leaves, mosquito repellant (in a positive way!), yeast, wheat, malt, apples, and a nice, almost funky undertone.
Dry, light to medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2.
Spicy, herbal taste, citrus, yeast, wheat, grass, coriander leaves, white pepper, slightly funky/farmyardy.
I really like the mix between traditional Saison style,and a modern hop variety. (2011-07-15)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice and refreshing saison. Aroma was big and strong. Heavy hops, lemongrass and a hint of funk. Pour was a light bubbly, hazy gold with a one finger small bubbled head. Taste was great as well. Very dry and bitter in the front. The heavy earthy hops are dominant with just a hint of sweetness in the malt. Lemon and other citrus are heavy and after the swallow there is a hint of grass and hay. Slightly funky, but not bretty. Heavy carbonation bites the cheeks. Delicious, crisp and refreshing
