Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn NY
We love all kinds of farmhouse ales. But the original farmhouse ales weren’t big beers – they were beers you could drink while working in the hot sun all day. Our 1/2 Ale reaches back to that tradition – it’s a dry, hoppy, citrusy, and delicious saison all at 3.4% ABV. In fact, you CAN have everything.
Golden color and smells like a saison brew: candied fruit nose. On the palate it is light and fizzy like a soda. It is fruity and refreshing and would make a good summer beer. Father Jack is intrigued by the 1/2 Ale and wants to try other saison beers.
** Currently not available in the New Orleans market: we got a bottle in Atlanta, GA
Would we have it again? To compare it to Belgian Saisons
Would we get a 6-pack? For a hot summer day
