I picked this up two weeks ago at Wegman's in Ithaca for just $8.99. Even with an 80 cent dollar exchange rate that is great value... especially as this is an old school ridged bottle - so when the end times come, I can trade that for rice and mustard, right?
Tonight, we baked salmon slabs and scallops in lemon, lime and ginger tonight and I thought that Brooklyn's respectful nod to saison would work well and it really does. There is plenty of spice in this bottle - coriander seed as well as a little nutmeg from the cream yeast. Big carbonation, too. There is also a bright thick lemony citrus seam running through the biscuity malt graininess. It's like a dry lemon merange pie in a glass. A great seafood beer and great value, too. Much BAer love.
And, yes, a little dab of good BBQ sauce is a fine addition to baked salmon.
