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.

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.
