Purchased at the LCBO in a 4pk of 12oz bottles- $13.10
A- Very good. Opened well and poured a nice light foamy head that stayed for minutes
S- WOW this is the best yeasty beer I have had in a while. Have had a few Saison but this one is fantastic.
T- Almost as good as it smells. This brewery has it going on. Yeast, malt, floral hints from coriander. Slightly sour.
M- Creamy. Slight bitterness but only at first sip. Saison
O- Excellent! Very good. Had a bomber I bought in Buffalo that I just didn't want to open and now I know what I got.... Will hold that baby for a bit.
This wonderful Saison paired well with... chicken in a mushroom sauce

Poured from a bottle into a Boulevard Brewery, Kansas City, MO, standard pint glass.
A: Thick and cloudy yellowish with tinges of green. Nice body of color with some nice lacing and head, lots of very small, fine floating bits from the sediment in the glass (not too distracting, thankfully).
S: Very high in citrus and green apple with a hop body. Some alcohol and yeast backbone. A good aroma.
T: Lemon and floral hops, green apple finish with some mild bitterness. Very light malt body. Little bit of light sweetness, not much bite. Rosey finish.
M: Very crisp and clean, nice and drinkable. Fairly strong beer, but doesn't feel like it.
O: Another very good selection from Ommegang, who is currently averaging a wonderfully high rating for me. Probably the most consistent and highest average brewery I've reviewed. Hennepin must be my least favorite beer from them so far, but it is still a very good brew that would be nice to drink on a mild summer afternoon.
