Have had this beer many times and I just finally got around to reviewing it. It is one of my favorite Ommegang brews:
A: Pours a beautiful golden yellow with a little cloudiness. Not as "unfiltered" as some of your Belgian Saisons but looks good none the less
S: Decent amount of spice in the nose. Very refreshing scent.
T: There is something about this beer that keeps me coming back. It has a little spice in the taste that turns sweet while it's warming in your mouth.
D: Goes down smooth, if it was a little lighter on the ABV it would make a great session beer.
M: My only complaint is that it feels a little thin. This may be a product of the keg that it came from but it is still highly enjoyable none the less.
Serving type: growler

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.

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.
