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

Poured from a 750 mL bottle, served in a tulip glass.

A- Pours a hazy yellow body with a white soapy two finger head and minimal lacing. This looks tasty.

S- Yummy bananas, clove, and citrus. Of course there is the usual aroma of Belgian yeast, which works really well here.

T- Really, really nice. Reminds me of a good tripel. Orange and lemon come first, with banana and spice following. FInishes a bit boozey, but not intolerable.

M- Light bodied and pretty spot-on with the mouthfeel. Slightly creamy, well-carbonated, and crisp.

O- This one is certainly refreshing and clean. I will be enjoying one or many in the future, as it is easy to consume multiples of these.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

a cloudy light yellow in color, 2 fingers of detergent like head, lots of visible carbonation. smells of yeast, lemongrass, very bready. the taste is pretty funky.. farmhouse yeast, has a slight skunkyness to it, which is a common thing in this beer (had it plenty of times before on tap and bottle, first time sitting down to review it). lemongrass and yeast are the main hints in both nose and mouth. medium body, high carbonation and creamy feel.

a nice saison, but a little too much like a witbier for my liking. could use more hops to balance out the overwhelming yeast flavor.

Ommegang has done it again with this great example of saison, nice medium carbonation, golden wheat color, substantial head and crisp taste. very well balanced taste, alcohol is hidden and this would be a session beer but for it's 7.7 ABV...one of my favorite saisons. The label says they are part of the Duvel family.
