Bottle poured into a goblet
Whoa! I initially poured this wrong which resulted in a monstrous foamy white cap which filled the glass. Settled down into thick, foamy, giant bubbly foam with some nice lacings on the glass. I shall repour....second pour, this beer simply foams up on you. Carefully pour which will result in a three finger head. Opaque golden yellow with teeny tiny bubbles if you look hard enough.
Aroma of grass, spices, peppery, lemons.
Taste is light and flavorful. Spices, grass notes, peppery, hint of lemon on the finish. Slight aftertaste.
Mouthfeel light but will foam up when you swish it around
A good Belgian that I would enjoy again if within my reach. There are others that I would seek out but still a good beer.

3.54/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Poured from a growler purchased at Three Palms Brewing.
A= Golden yellow pretty see through but this is common in this style of beer, almost lager like, minimum head, very little lacing.
S= Malty, fruity.
T= this is where this beer becomes confusing, is really light for a saison even thought that at 5.4% should have some heft to it.
M: viscosity levels are off the charts with this one not a bad thing for me.
O= Saisons are one of my favorite style of beer this one is on the light side of the scale which makes it perfect for florida weather, but I can see how other reviews might be expecting more out of a beer from Ommengang, the question lies would i buy this again... chances are no if there are other Saisons available.

3.8/5 rDev -0.8%

Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a yellowish-gold. A good deal of foamy white head. Good retention and good lacing.
Smell: Spices, wheat, and a little grassiness. A little fruitiness when agitated, most notably lemon.
Taste: Lemony. Strong taste of grass and yeast. A mix of other fruits, as well, a little harder to pinpoint. Possibly orange and grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with good carbonation. Surprisingly refreshing.
Overall: Still getting used to these surging Saisons. A little different than the IPAs that I'm used to. I liked Hennepin a little bit more, but this one was more of an easy drinker.

Bottled on 1/8/14. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy light golden with a fluffy eggshell white head that sticks around and leaves awesome lacing and retention. The aromas are very clean and pleasant. Lots of fresh pear. Some hints of green apple in the mix as well. Very fruity. Yeast and malts are there. Some banana and clove. The flavors are clean and refreshing. More fruit, especially pear. Maybe some hints of white grape? There's a nice earthiness going on. Some spices, but they truly are subtle, in my opnion. Some black pepper, but far from spicy. Lots of malts. Mouthfeel is awesome. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with very active carbonation. The carbonation is very creamy and fluffy. Extremely smooth. Alcohol obviously goes unnoticed. Great for spring/summer.
This is another really nice beer from Ommegang. Very crisp and refreshing with a fun creaminess to it. Enjoyable stuff!

3.65/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Pours a cloudy yellow. Moderate head that settles to fine layer of bubbles. One ring of lace and then it is spotty.
Smells of pale malts, light hop and a touch of alcohol.
Starts off quite light and watery. The first distinct flavor is sourness with a definitive Belgian yeast kick. The aftertaste is short lived, leaving a dry residue in the mouth. I also note a bit of candy sugar sweetness mid-sip.
Serving type: on-tap
