Named after the Belgian Missionary who discovered Niagara Falls - who says Beer isn't educational?

Poured from 355ml bottle i ended up with a foamy head due probably to my over vigourous pouring technique. Once it settled the beer is pale and cloudy in appearance due to the yeast sediment. A hoppy crisp taste pleasant to drink, the beer belies its 7.7% ABV. Overall a very good Saison, worth checking out.

I paid about $20 at Costco for a 3-pack variety of Ommegang 750ml's that included a nice Ommegang logo narrow tulip glass.

I poured this at 46 degrees into the Ommegang glass which produced a 2 finger light and fluffy head the color of raw cotton. A brilliant pale gold with straw colored edges with a light haze. Brisk carbonation from the bottom of the glass.

Great complex smell of Belgium yeast, lemon zest, grains, creamy. Really nice nose on this.

Best saison I've had. Grains, straw, and carbonation attack your palate first, following quickly by herbaceous notes and lemon zest and other citrus through the lingering finish. Maybe a hint of grapefruit flashing toward the end. Despite all the citrus notes, it is not in any way tart.

Goes down very smoothly. Carbonation is a shade high but the flavors meld together masterfully.
