Draft to Pint
@Pizzaiolis Chino Hills,CA
App- A semi translucent yellow with little bits of orange and a 1/2 finger of white head. Only a couple dots of cling on this one due to very cold pint glass.
* Server realized error and comped this beer for a cold glass and a pint glass instead of a OSWG or Tulip (He did it, I didn't mention due to being with wife for anniversary)
Smell- This seemed to be a hybrid of aromatics to me. A bit of a thick Hefei with a Saison. Big aromatics of yeast, dampness, lemon and banana.
Taste- A good malty spicy saison. A large amount of pepper on the first sip and then more of the hefe banana and yeast flavors on the following sips.
Mouth- A medium body and a medium carbonation level. A bit of a mixed wet/dry feel and a bit more peppery spice note.
Drink- This was pretty good and flavorful. More of a sipping saison with big bold flavors and a good balance and feel. I like what Ommegang does. I'll come back to their beers for sure.

Poured from a brown 25.4 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is alive with fruits, yeast, some sweetness. Taste is very good, fruits, yeast, mild hops, a touch of alcohol, just a bit sweet, very complex. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this is a top notch beer.
