3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Euston, London. Pours a yellow canary colour with a small white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy and mostly grainy and cereals, like rice. Taste is grassy and grainy with a sweet-acidic ricey note. Strange but pleasant. Body is thin with good carbonation. Overall, nice and interesting, but lacking the spicy yeasty true saison character to me.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 pours golden with some cloudiness, very thick foamy head. aroma carries lemon, some yeast and pepper.. maybe a tiny amount of sweetness up front but otherwise pretty tart, acidic and dry.. crisp and refreshing.. somewhat like a light shanty without the syrupy mouthful

bottle. Very happy this beer is widely available and not as expensive now. It should be an every day kinda go to. Huge head on hazy yellow. Aroma just like the description...lemon rind and Belgian yeast and sweet grassy malt. Flavors are the same with a nice dry bitter middle and end on a soft yeasty palate.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into 15 oz. gold-rimmed Brooklyn Brewery-branded stemware.
Pours an attractive hazy gold with a huge pillowy three finger clean white head that has almost supernatural retention. Leaves behind considerable lacing. Pleasant smells of bread and slight citrus dominate. Mild grassy and citrus flavors combine with an exceptionally creamy mouthfeel that finishes with just the right hint of spice. The refreshing flavors make this beer a joy to the tastebuds and the quinntesential warm weather saison.
Truly a world class beer and one of the most original and highest quality saisons brewed by a American craft brewery. A must try.

I sometimes read the commercial description of a beer and wonder if I’m really rating the same thing but "sunshine in a glass" sums this one up pretty nicely. Tangy zesty bright lemon pepper goodness.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Rotem’s place. Thanks Ariel. Hazy golden with frothy white head. Sour aroma, then a little flowery, very faint honey. Light bitterness, green taste. Light body, lively fizz, smooth finish. Cool.

A very good summer brew by Brooklyn. Pours cloudy golden with little head if poured in a tilted glass. citrus zest is in there, definitely a little hoppy. Delicious

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 750ml brown corked bottle this beer poured a very cloudy medium yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish citrus, cactus, pine and pepper. The flavor was sweet, tangy and bready with notes of citrus, cactus, agave, lemon and pepper. The finish was long with sweet cactus, lemon and pepper lingering. Fairly full bodied. Very nice.

Pours light orange with a thick white head. Aromas of lemon, tropical fruits, a touch of yeast. Wonderfully balanced body with a nice hop presence, flavours of pineapple, citrus and the belgian yeast comes out on the finish.
