look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Side poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance - Pours a nice golden color with a big thick, pillowy head of about two fingers that had great retention, probably more than five minutes. I love the bottles that Ommegang uses, very unique and cool.
Smell - Bananas and spices, some citrus from the hops, yeast, and cloves round out the smell. Not as pronounced of a smell as something like Orval, but a well balanced nose that is quality.
Taste - Follows the nose, although a little more subdued. The spices and yeast make their appearance, finishing with a touch of hops.
Mouthfeel - Finishes smooth, easy to drink this beer. Medium carbonation with a fairly dry finish.
Overall - This is a good beer, nothing spectacular, but good. I would rather have a couple of the other Saisons instead, but there is nothing wrong with this one. It just doesn't really leave the "wow" impression taht I look for out of a Beer of Fame.

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.
