750 mL bottle poured into Ommegang glass. About 2 year old bottle
This a bright yellow almost orange color with a 1 finger fizzy head that fades quickly but leaves some lacing on the glass. Bubbles from the base of the glass. Smell is full of funk with hints of banana and sugar. Little earth and hop tones as well. Pretty good smelling beer. Taste is citrusy with some floral notes. Very dry funk at the end. Taste unlike most saisons but in a good way. Mouthfeel is fairly thin with good carbonation. Overall this is quite good. Will age very well and very drinkable.

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.
