4.43/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

From the kegerator into a weizen glass (I was feeling thirsty).

A: Huge pillowy head. As it starts to reside the large bubbles grip to the sides and remain puffy in the middle. Starchy corn water appearance with nice carbonation.

S: Lemon, grass, yeast, cloves, bubblegum. Sweet smelling which plays off the earthy grains in the background.

T: First tastes are the funk you'd associate with a great aged blue. I think the yeast is huge in this beer, it lends so much flavor and aroma. Has a nice biting grassy flavor that is cut through with the crisp citrus. Finishes spicy with a lingering flavor of clove, nutmeg, and pepper.

M: Mouthfeel is spot on for this one I'd say, light bodied with a strong carbonation that helps to move along and heavy lingering flavors.

D: Bought a keg of this for New Year's Eve to go along with Michelob Ultra. Group was BMC drinkers for the most part but they were all adventurous and stepped out of their comfort zone. It was a huge hit with everyone says it was so much more flavorful yet refreshing and light.

4.03/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

4.04/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours with three fingers of bubbly white head. Active carbonation is huge. Color is a light straw yellow. Sticky lacing left behind as head very slowly dissipated.

Smell: Pears, spices, bananas, and semi-sweet bready malts greet the drinker. There is some very dry pepper, and ashy notes on the body. Earth and dirt mesh with some light hop notes on the back end. Wow a lot going on here.

Taste: Touches of pepper and airy spices hit on the front first. Bread, sweet dough, and some salty hops show up on the body. More sweet malts ride through on the finish and some lingering spices go well together.

Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation with pleasant transitions of spice and sweet malts.

Overall: A great American saison. The pepper and dryness is heavier then I expected but this overall is a slow sipper that is easy to enjoy.
