I first had a bottle with the same label as in the photo which was in fact brewed in Belgium by Duvel. It would've rated at least a 4. Clearly superior to the second bottle brewed in NY with a silver label.

Color, taste, look, head, mouthfeel were all superior from the Duvel brewed version. The newest version tasted more like triple to me.

Overall average and will be sticking with abbey ale from ommegang.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

appearance: a beautiful hazy golden straw color with a 3 finger head that slowly dissapates to a thin layering on top of the beer. good, thick, creamy lacing throughout.

smell: that wonderful belgian funk that i cherish dearly, along with hay, some sweet florals, and citrus (mainly orange).

taste: delicious. plain and simple. much like the nose with the belgian yeast coming forward perfectly.

moutfeel: smooth, light, fluffy. light to medium bodied

overall: this just took over tank 7 in my "favorites" for this category. touche ommegang.

A: Pours a crystal clear, completely translucent, light gold with a HUGE pure white head. The foam takes forever to settle, and a ton of lacing is left on the glass as it drinks.

S: The nose is lemon citrus, light malt, pepper, gym sock, and a bit of stinky cheese. I also get a bit of grass, and some mineral rich well water. Srs.

T: This beer is sweet to start with a nice light malt bill. As it shirts to the back of the palate I get that grassy taste and bit of light citrus. Once the beer has moved off the tongue, the spices begin to shine. I get big pepper notes as it dries.

M: Light bodied beer. This is an incredibly easy drinker for a 7.7% beer. It's sweet and wet to start tightens up in the middle and get really dry on the back end. The spice shines through as it dries and it lingers until the next sip.

O: This is a really nice beer, but It's not my favorite saison. I'd definitely drink this beer again, but I'm not going to go crazy over it. Yet another well made beer from Ommegang.
