Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster's Reserve Ridgy-Didge Aussie-Style Saison. Brooklyn, NY. Farmhouse Ale/Saison. 8.4% ABV.
Served on tap at Amsterdam Alehouse in a tulip glass. Pours a red-amber color with a two finger foam head that dissipates rather quickly. Smells are lemony and barnyard-esq. The carbonation is on the medium to heavy side with a relatively light body. Tastes are of lemon, citrus, pepper and a hint of licorice. Aftertaste is heavily on the pepper side, with a boozy feel to it.
This was definitely the strongest saison I have tried. I think that the alcohol presence was too strong for my liking. Additionally I had tried a very light sour ale before drinking this one so that may have affected my taste. Regardless, this beer is a one-and-done in my book.
