A: 3.75 - Pale straw gold with a small, frothy head.
S: 4.25 - Nice spicy clove aroma, with light fruitiness.
T: 4.5 - Excellent flavor, with a fairly large amount of bitterness and earthy, floral hop notes, fruity banana, vanilla tones, and plenty of spicy phenols.
M: 4.5 - Ommegang always gets mouthfeel perfect, with lots of body even when light and effervescent like this one.
O: 4.5 - Delicious, delightful beer! Not an American blonde, certainly. Could easily be called a saison or a Belgian pale.

Pours a cloudy orange with an off white head that trails the glass. The smell was full of sweet malt, almost sugary. It also had a bit of spice such as cloves and I think nutmeg on the nose. The flavor profile was a bit different from what I was expecting. The taste had those sp[ices up front, came into the hops which gave a clean flavor, and then the malt at the finish which was almost a little sour. Very interesting profile that I would like to try again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy light golden yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that took a long time to die down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with hints of peppery spices.
T: As in the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of Belgian yeast, which are accompanied by hints of grassy hops. Notes of peppery spices are also present, and these linger through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. All of the carbonation makes it feel a little airy.
O: This beer is extremely flavorful given its light body and has some refreshing properties, similar to what you would expect from a saison. It is a really nice beer for the summer months.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden with a big, pillowy white head that lingers for a while,
but dissipates slowly into a cap. There is plenty of lacing left behind on the glass.

Aroma: Hay and pepper dominate on the nose, but there is some funky yeast in the
background.

Taste: Funky and yeasty all the way down. A nice bit of sweetness builds its way up a you
continue to drink it.

Palate: The Belgian funkiness mixes well with the pepper on the finish to create a nice, long
aftertaste. Body is light, and the carbonation is about average, which makes for an easy
drinking beer.

Overall: This is a delicious beer! This is definitely a recommended four pack for a beautiful
afternoon in the yard (or for a football Sunday).
