Brooklyn Brewery & Mountain Goat, 8.4%
Spiced and malty saison.
Smells like a mixture if nutmeg and star seed, or whatever it is.
Up front the taste is that Saison style; dry and slightly sour-tart. Middle the malt comes out. Fair bit of biscuit type malt which works good against the tart. Next comes the spice. That nutmeg and star spice (apparently it is Tasmanian bush pepper) comes into it’s own. Long lasting spice with the malt hanging on, just. Wish more saisons were like this.
