4.5/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle, bottled on 07/03/12. Can't exactly read the best by date, some of it is unreadable. Served in a tulip glass. Despite a careful pour, some sediment came along.

Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow with a dense white head. Persistent sheets and strands of lacing. Held up to the light you can see the sediment suspended in the beer, along with bubbles coming up nicely through the beer. I suspect this would be an amazing looking beer had I been able to keep the sediment in.

Smell: Yeast, orange peel, herbal leafy hops. Quite nice.

Taste: Delightfully tart orange peel up front, followed by grains, coriander, hops, and a crisp but satisfying malty finish. Complex, but oh so very good.

Mouthfeel: Effervescent is indeed a good way to describe this. The carbonation is not fizzy, but does a nice job of gently scrubbing the palate clean, and yet leaving some of that orange peel and hop flavor behind without it sticking to the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: Dangerously drinkable - I wish I had another one to try right now. Went very well with Tuna casserole and overall is a great beer. Fantastic in all categories. I will have to get it again to see how it is when I pour even more carefully next time leaving the sediment behind.

4.04/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Gorgeous deep straw colored beer with a dense and rocky head. Endless strings of bubbles feed the head and never let it fade. Great lacing down the glass. Aromas of pears, apples, peppery notes, citrusy notes, a touch of earthy and floral hops and some of that barnyard funk. Taste follows through with citrusy orange notes, mild peppery tones, floral hop flavor, tart apple and Belgian fruity yeast flavors. Mouthfeel begins creamy with ample carbonation that finishes super dry. A great saison, one to have again for sure.

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.
