look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
served in 750 mL bottle.
pours a bright golden color with slight whitish cloudiness. super fluffy, pillowy head. label calls this a saison, not a style i'm too familiar with...
aroma is of belgian candi sugar and cloves.
taste just blew me away. very very similar to duvel, which shouldn't surprise me because the ommeg brewery is owned by moortgart.
slightly "farmhousey," grassy flavor especially reminds me of duvel. alchol packs some punch, but spicy hops flavor and belgian-esque sweetness all meld together to balance out nicely.
sweet finish but super duper drinkable.
this is a real crowd pleaser. all the complexity of the big belgians is here. a great blonde beer. i highly recommend it.

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.
