4.26/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A - Slightly hazy, dull golden color. Four fingers of beautiful, white head with excellent retention. Lots of thick lacing. I'm not sure you could improve on this...
S - Faint earthiness combined with underwhelming citrus. Pepper, phenols, and lemon. The smell becomes much more pronounced as the beer warms up a bit.
T - The lemon and citrus fruits hit you first. Just the right amount of dryness, tart, and earthy flavor. Nice, pepper and phenol aftertaste
M - crisp, medium mouthfeel
O - Another stellar choice from Ommegang. After trying a biere-de-mars, I didn't think I would ever like anything this dry and earthy. But this is so complex, yet balanced. Very drinkable. I went through the 750 mL bottle way too fast.

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.
