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

Look: Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head that leaves good lacing

Smell: Banana, phenol, estery

Taste: Light banana, light malts, a mild sweetness that prevents this from being too dry. Distinct Belgian yeast

Feel: Light body, full carbonation

Overall: A good brew, but doesn't stand out from the pack. Not really worth Ommegang prices

Pours an opaque pale gold producing 2+ fingers of foamy, glowing white, moderately lasting head that leaves a nice webby lacing from the surface collar to the rim of the glass. Aroma is sweet with notes of biscuit & cracker malt, Belgian yeast, lightly fruity with hints of lemon & dry grass. Taste is not as delicate as most blonde ales with notes of biscuit, honey, fruit, pepper, floral & light citrus hops. Ommegang's Belgian yeast adds a different dimension to this blonde ale. Lots of soda cracker dryness. The sweetness promised by the nose is not as evident in the mouth. Starts with some sweetness then rapidly cascades into a bitter, dry finish. Aftertaste is dry & lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with medium-high carbonation, creamy, lightly oily, slightly chewy, prickly & dry in the latter half of the sip.

Cloudy and yet bold golden in appearance. Three quarter inch tightly knit off white head is present. Brussels lacing. Sourdough bread aroma is predominant. The sourdough bread element is also very pronounced in the front of the palate and the fade. You do get a bit of a coppery bitterness at the back of the palate to avoid this from tasting like a note. The mouth is very dry and heavily carbonated. Great take on this style.

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.
