Reviewed from notes date January 27, 2013.
From a 355 ml bottle into a tulip.
A-The brew pours with a big, shiny, white head of foam. The head is slow to fade. The beer is clear and golden in color with a lot of visible carbonation.
S-The smell is spicy and crisp. I detect straw, hay, and lemon, as well as a touch of honey. Underlying the mixture is a powdery yeast scent. Complex and pleasing.
T-The taste follows the smell in flavor and complexity. There is less honey and more lemon (lemon curd to be accurate). The flavors are predominantly dry, grassy, and crisp. The finish is long lasting and drying.
M-Mouthfeel is an example for the style. The brew is nicely carbonated with a lighter body. This brew is crisp and easy to drink, but full of flavor.
O-This is one of my favorite saisons ever (new or old world). Ommegang really hits on all cylinders here: the brew is good looking, it smells nice (love the crisp lemon and honey), the taste is complex, and the feel is well-matched to the flavor profile. I will definitely drink this again.

Apperance-golden hazy with a beautiful white head that sticks around for a while.
Smell - spicy, orange, hay, funk
Taste- orange, green banana, dry, slightly sour, hides abv very well
Mouthfeel - very nice smooth, full mouth feel
Overall - A lovely beer. Very refreshing, delicious and beautiful to look at. Available at a decent price. Not an easy beer to get where I live but will pick it up when I travel to another city.
