A - pours a slightly cloudy straw color with a two finger head that dissipates into a small ring and leaves lacing down the glass.
S - Mostly banana and fruity esters, with a hint of spice in the background.
T - lots going on here. Spices up front - coriander and clove, maybe something else as well - which lead into a strong fruity banana/bubblegum flavor with a lemony presence, followed by a dry bready finish with a hint of hop bitterness. Alcohol is deceptively well-hidden - I didn't realize this was over 7% abv until I looked it up.
M - Had this from a growler that was filled at Brewery Ommegang about a week and a half ago, so I'm not sure how representative this should be of the beer's carbonation. Mouthfeel was good - carbonation drew out the spices without being too strong to destroy the tastes in the middle of the palate. Maybe slightly thin, but that was probably the result of the growler having been filled a week and a half ago.
D - I could drink this all night. It's light enough to not fill me up, but still packs a ton of flavor without leaving an unpleasant aftertaste.
Ommegang got me into craft beer, and this is another great offering from them. My first saison, it has me craving more from the style. Great beer.

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.
