On tap at When Pigs Fly.
Nice citrus and pepper aroma/taste.
A great beer for a hot summer day.

12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a very pretty, opaque, golden color, speckled with orange highlights and four fingers of white head that slowly dissolved into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Strong, pleasant aromas of toasted malt, freshly cut grass, hay, orange zest, pepper and coriander.

Taste: Delicious! Toasted malt up front, imparting notes of freshly baked French baguettes, followed by some honey-like sweetness, orange-like citrus flavors, finished with some spice notes of pepper and coriander.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.4%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a great saison, and another great beer from Ommegang! I’ll certainly get it again!

Funny story - thought I was drinking Ommerglass Hop something, or at least thought that was what I grabbed from the fridge until first sip. Then I realized something else was happening entirely. I trust very few companies to be dead balls on when it comes to the description of their Saisons because barnyard turns my stomach and makes me sad. Well, they got this one nailed. Pours with a touch of cloudy and enormous brilliant white head (actually my first hint that I had NOT grabbed Hop whatever....). Nose of clove (second hint and determining characteristic unless they did something REALLY weird with Hop whatever...HOUSE! That's it - Hop HOUSE!) and just a delicate sprinkling of grassiness. Taste resembled the nose mostly, but add just the right touch of peppercorn to tame the blend of sweet and tart. Basically, this one was fantastic and shall be had again!
