3.5/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: beautiful and beguiling--more foam than the glass could contain when poured casually. Laces well and steady stream of microbubbles supports a thin layer across the beer for the duration.

S: Lemons and a lazy day.

T: Wow--Haven't sampled many saisons but this is way more sour than expected. Initially overwhelming; as the buds acclimated, started to embrace it and could see how this might become the quintessential thirst quencher--lemonade for grownups and enough reward to make one want to pick crops or at least mow the lawn.

M: Really for as lemony/citrus/sour; this lands very softly on the tongue and is swallowed with a smile. Very cool craftsmanship at work here.

O: For nine bucks a bottle, I need more, much more complexity and interest. Several Belgian Saisons at the same cost, and IMHO that also offer a much more beguiling entreaty to be consumed than this one trick tart. (example: St. Feullien--a rhapsody of flavor and aroma by comparison.

Still on a hot day and your dollar, I'd have another in a heartbeat. Let it also be known that I have immense respect for the "gang" and love many of their beers. Saison is the wild card of styles and one mans thirst slaker might be anothers ambrosia as there seems to be no clear consensus on what this style really is.

Finally providing one of my favorite American-made saisons with a proper review. Poured out of a 12 oz bottle with the new grey/purple silhouette branding. There is a production and best by date on the neck, but the production date is smeared beyond recognition. The best by date on this particular bottle is August 2015, which makes this bottle 20 months old based on the shelf life of Hennepin (listed as 3 years on freshbeeronly.com). Poured into a Boulevard Smokestack Series tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a golden straw colored body with a little bit of haze to it and a brassy twinge to the hue. A steady stream of bubbles rises up from the bottom of the glass to meet a one finger stark white head with a few larger bubbles from the sloshing of the pour. Lacing at this point is almost nonexistent (almost), but I know in my experience with fresher bottles that it is not uncommon to leave mottled sticky lacing around the sides of the glass on the drink down.

Smell - Whereas a fresher bottle of this reveals pretty forward notes of floral overtones reminiscent of jasmine and sweet nectar, that has been subdued with time in favor or more of yeast flavor profiles--pepper, clove-like spice are present alongside grainier notes of sourdough and even some hints of brighter lemongrass and Granny Smith. But the grain and peppery characteristics are the leaders now.

Taste - The aroma wasn't lying, with strong notes of pale grain and slight tart (but not really sour at all) notes of fruit along side white pepper, baking spice, orange zest and a slight estery bite with some faint hop bitterness. I must admit to preferring this one fresh, and my ratings reflect as such, but this is still a good beer with nearly two years on it. Would be an easy one to keep around for a random occasion because of the ability to keep for a long period of time.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and moderate carbonation with an effervescent component to the feel. Dry finish with just a slight hint of sweet.

Overall, this is just a really well-done American-made saison. It's one of my favorite beers from a stellar Ommegang lineup and one that I will frequently grab just on a whim when I'm looking for a solid saison that isn't Tank 7.

This may be Ommegang's best, and I think it's so close to Duvel and great Trappists that I'd love to conduct a blind tasting later this summer. Outstanding. Must try.

Since Duvel is one of my favorite beers, this is in my top 30 for sure.

A - Pours a murky, dusty straw gold color with a 1 inch white head. Not the head of lasting and lacing of Duvel.

S - Also a Meditation beer as good as wine or champagne, and even more energetic. . Lemon, champagne, with spices, pepper, fruit, apple, and sweet malt. Grassy, very long finish, very appetizing. A little more yeast stink than Duvel (a Saison).

T - All of the notes in the aroma and MORE SO... RISING on the tongue, with sweet malts, a little bitterness, spices. Pepper & champagne.
A lot going on. Also like Duvel, a clean long, long, cleansing finish, that makes you want another kiss, I mean sip.

M - pinpoint carbonation. Dry and crisp like champagne. A bit chaulky in a good way.

D - Must try.
As Alstrom wrote "Close to champagne but so much more. At a dinner party see if people prefer over wine". I do!

A - Cloudy and light gold with plenty of white foam.

S - Spicy and fruity. Some sour yeast and hops.

T - Spice, citrus, and hops. Alcohol taste is more present than expected for <8% ABV.

M - Bubble mania with a crisp finish.

O - It's good. I don't think I've had anything from Ommegang that I didn't like. I would drink it again, but it's not a beer that I will drink regularly. Prost!

4.06/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Pours up a whole lot of head and looks as if it will have very good retention. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a dull, pale amber which appears as a hazy mix of gold and lemon in the light. Some lacing.

Nose- Big notes of banana followed by very mellow and rounded notes of clove. Some coriander, big notes of orange peel. Light hints of apple. Some creaminess that tends somewhat toward vanilla. Some lemon. Nice smooth ginger. Swirling gives the phenols a slight sour to sulfur scent. Not in a bad way. Maybe even a little bit of grassiness.

Taste- Fairly reflective of the nose with what I can already tell is very good balance and integration. The fruit aspects seem to work seamlessly together with banana moving into lemon and orange, some melon, and light notes of apple. The cloves have a good amount of presence and aren't exactly rounded but they work. They are more smoky than ashy and have a slight woodiness to them. It works well with the creamy front of well rounded fruit esters. Strong coriander and mild notes of pepper. Pepper grows on the finish and works well with the smoky cloves. Not my favorite saison but I fully understand why it gets such good ratings. It's not as crisp a DuPont but the mellow nature of the flavor profile and the mouthfeel are a nice change of pace. Definitely a really good beer and one that I will drink again in the future. Pepper expands and even gives suggestions of cinnamon. Nice complexity, good presence. It doesn't seem like being owned by a conglomerate has ruined Ommegang yet.

Mouthfeel- Nice tingle from the flavor notes. A little more than light bodied with a good amount of airiness and effervescence. Healthy amount of carbonation and even a slight carbonic sting but it works well with the spicy finish of this beer.

Drinkability- Very easygoing and quite pleasant. And I love the fact that these are in 12 oz bottles so I can pick up a four pack for a little more than what a 750 would cost. Why more should cost more, I will never understand. A bargain at just over 3 bucks a bottle.

Overall- Really good beer that is a good representation of the style. Not as dry and crisp as my favorite saisons but still quite enjoyable. A must try.

A: Pours golden pale with an elegant large fluffy white head with great retention. The head sticks to the glass very nicely.

S: Peppery, grainy, hoppy, lemon

T: peppery, spicy, orange, lemony hops. Slight tartness.

M: Finishes very dry and crisp with a lingering spiciness and slight bitterness.

O: Amazingly refreshing and perfect for a hot day. This has all the characteristics I look for in a non wild yeast saison. A benchmark to measure others by, even more so than DuPont in my opinion. A must try.

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

Hazy and straw-colored in appearance. Very nice head formation and retention in my Chimay chalice. A thin froth cap persists even after the head fades. Aroma of light, tart fruit with some secondary citrus character. Chalky, clove-like yeast notes.

Semi-dry, very flavorful. They nailed the rustic farmhouse character, though don't expect and funk or Brett character. Light, pale malt backbone, and there may even be some wheat in there. Fruity esters suggest pear and white grape. Some white pepper is apparent on the finish. Soft mouthfeel, the carbonation becoming ever-smoother. Hardly a hint of alcohol.

Hennepin should be a go-to saison for anyone in Ommegang's distribution area. If you like a classic saison like DuPont, you'll like this.

I'll keep this simple. This is light and refreshing, tasty, and a perfect beer. It has a slight alcoholic zing to it. It is a 7.7% beer and you will feel it. This would be the PERFECT beer in the summer. It has that Belgian wheat beer core but a bit more flavor.

The smell has something in it that reminds me of the scent of piss. Haha. That doesn't deter me because the taste is fantastic (no piss). The bottle says not to disturb the yeast sediment... I did that by accident. Maybe the yeast doesn't like to be disturbed, it gets pissed... then it decides to smell like it. :D My fault! lol.

If you are a fan of Belgian wheat beers you will LOVE this. I'm sure of it. Cheers.

First of all, the weather was sunny and warm and perfect for the style when I had this beer yesterday. I had also just listened to Dr. Charles Bamforth on Beer Smith radio. I was more than ready to drink great beer and wax philosophically about it.

Appearance: Standard side pour into a .5l Weizen glass makes a large, fluffy white pillow that lasts for a good long time. Lovely cathedral window type lacing. Golden and effervescent.

Aroma: Amazing! Crisp, slight skunky/grassy/ hoppy, pilsner malt, spices/peppery, tropical banana, so much more!

Flavor: Follows the nose with Pilsner malt, spice/peppery notes add depth with complex fruity, banana, citrusy, vanilla to add yet another layer before a medium-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body, with a slight tingle/sting from the carbonation. Alcohol is very well hidden. Crisp, but not overly so. The carbonation is too high to quaff this beer and that’s a good thing.

Opinion: Amazing! Similar to Tank 7… Maybe better? I was worried a little because of all the adjuncts (coriander, ginger, orange peel), but the balance is perfect. The medley is hard to detect and many sips are necessary to fully appraise. The individual flavors are elusive and fleeting. Buy it again? Oh yesss, a more thorough examination is needed.

Pours a hazy yellow with a big foamy head that lasts for a bit. Moderate lacing. Big aroma of grapefruit and citrus, with notes of yeast. The taste follows the aroma, along with a fair amount of sweetness and spice. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. This is such a good saison. It leaves me thinking of warmer weather and hoping for another glass soon.

Apperance-golden hazy with a beautiful white head that sticks around for a while.
Smell - spicy, orange, hay, funk
Taste- orange, green banana, dry, slightly sour, hides abv very well
Mouthfeel - very nice smooth, full mouth feel
Overall - A lovely beer. Very refreshing, delicious and beautiful to look at. Available at a decent price. Not an easy beer to get where I live but will pick it up when I travel to another city.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle conditioned poured in a standard pint...because that's what I have in this hotel.

A: slightly hazy golden color small head that persists and leaves lacing on the glass as you drink.

S: slighly metallic smell with light apple like jicama or starfruit but not sour like starfruit

T:sweet like a chimay cinq cents with buttery bread feel that fades to a plain wheat bread. Slightly spicy though I'd be inclined to say it's the carbonation.

M: smooth easy drinking saison slight burn from carbonation but not harsh.

O: I agree with ajzbedo in that this would be great to pop the cork on a hot summer day it's refreshing and flavorful in the bread department. It can even at times remind me of caraway ie pumpernickel. I'd say I'm a fan, it's reasonably priced too.

*12 oz. bottle*
Look: Hazy golden blonde body, 1 1/2 finger white soapy head.

Smell: Tart citrus, spices, hay, yeasty, hints of earthy quality tobacco, mild funk.

Taste: Tart citrus (Lemon peel) wheat and oats, honey, hint of a fruit (pear), sweet and dry and slightly sour.

Feel: Medium-light body, very active carbonation.

Overall: This is very delicious. One of the prime examples of the style. I have no problem drinking a four pack of this all Summer/Fall long. For it being almost 8% it isn’t detectable. This brew is recommended.

I had this over a year ago on tap and remembered liking it a lot, but what with the hoopla on so many saisons and funky farmhouse ales churning out every day (it seems), this was sadly buried underneath with no immediate visitation. No more, I say - reviewed live - poured into a teku glass from a 12oz bottle. Freshness date is "09/2014," and apparently it was bottled on 02/29/2012" as well (?!). Doubtful, as these four packs weren't available back then. I'm going to say this is 2-6 months old, roughly.

Golden amber in color, with a fluffy, foamy white head that coats the top of the glass before eventually settling into a ring. Good carbonation at first - I'd imagine this would look fabulous in a flute glass. Lots of sediment float around in the glass, and added on to the cloudy appearance, this is relatively rustic looking. Quite good.

A lovely saison at the nose, as indicated by the generous amount of spices, fruitiness, barnyard notes, and overall bitterness. The spices are at the front here, with juicy orange peel, coriander, as well as some slight ginger and white pepper, but there's a nice white peach (or merely stone fruit) flavor that follows, with some notes of wet hay, lavender, and light toasted leather notes. A little bit of toffee, maybe some caramel, with an underlying funkiness underneath that resembles a good cave aged cheese. Really delightful and playful stuff!

The flavor is a continuation of the aroma, with a little bit more sweetness showing in from the malts and yeast, but otherwise, that's about as far as it goes. THIS is how more American made farmhouse ales should be made. A generous addition of orange and lemon peel, plus some light peaches (with cream), as well as some white pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and some dried white flowers (with a bit of honeysuckle). Finishes semi-dry, with a wetness accentuated by the yeast, which gives it a bit of soaked leather and light tobacco flavor, as well as a brief nuttiness resembling almonds. Slightly sweet at the finish, with some strong notes of toffee and sugar cream, but it's otherwise stupidly balanced and refreshing. Graceful carbonation, with a gentle, cracker-like texture. For a mass produced saison, this is among the greats for sure.

What a wonderful saison! I'd love to buy some bottles and watch as they all develop over time, in spite of the apparent freshness dates. This has to be one of the most underrated saisons brewed in the country - and I'm at guilt myself, as I've spent so much time running after the more hyped or limited ones while this would gather dust on shelves wherever I'd go. Highly recommended for saison lovers - a domestic offering that's up there with my favorites from Belgium.

A: poured from a 750 corked and caged bottle into a tulip. Two fingers of head. Moderate lacing that held the glass all the way down. Copper in color and cloudy/murky. Bubbles raising to the top of the glass, champagne like.

S: Didn't pick up a whole lot, white pepper, and citrus. Pleasant on the nose.

T: Bitter hops up front that slowly changed to sour apple and a honey sweet finish. White pepper is in the mix as well with a lingering peppery sweet after taste. Delightful. There is a lot going on from the second it hit my lips until I finished swallowing it. Wow!

M: A lot of carbonation, bubbly and pleasant. Very crisp and refreshing. Peppery burn. I love it!

O: This is my second go around with Ommegang first time wasn't great (abbey ale), but they hit a home run with this one! From start to finish I loved everything about this beer. I probably would rate higher if it were 95 degrees in July instead of 2 degrees in February. Great hot summer ale. I highly recommend!

Corked & caged 750ml into teku.

A: Straw amber golden. Thick white, lathery head with small bubbles. Good soapy lacing and a lot of carbonation.

S: Spicy, coriander and grains of paradise. Citrus and yeast combine to create a hefeweizen-esque nose. The yeast notes are tempting me. This beer has a very appealing nose!

T: Follows the nose. Spicy but subtle, orange peel with a tartness behind it. Yeast, wheat and a sweet finish. Flavors meld well to create a delicious sip.

M: Creamy, effervescent and medium bodied.

O: I'm not the world's biggest saison fan, but this proved to be a great choice. The spicy, orange peel tartness mellowed perfectly on the palate. I would drink this again. Easily drinkable and sessionable if you can find it at the right price. Paired well with a Neapolitan margherita pizza with a little black truffle oil on top. I would recommend this beer as a great example of the style.

Pours an insanely effervescent hazy pale straw with a beautiful tiny-bubbled white head that stays around as good as could be hoped for. Great retention; nice even strings of gloppy lacing. Almost perfect.

Spicy phenolic yeast notes pervade with a somewhat hoppy background. White pepper, banana, cloves, vanilla, medicinal hops, lemon zest.

Soft and slightly sweet with a tremendous yeast flavor. Orange creamsicle, dough, dandelion, hay and a finish with the tiniest touch of hops.

Slick, creamy, and quick. Almost coats the old mouth, but has a clean finish with a nice level of carbonation (especially considering how violent it looks in the glass).

I keep waiting to have a beer by these guys that I don't love, but alas, this one didn't do it.
Once again, despite being American, Ommegang has made a stellar Belgian style (something that is all too rare, in my opinion).
Beautiful beer with a nice summery nose and a taste that perfectly balances the line between being sweet, refreshing, and hoppily dry.
One of the best examples I have yet had of one of my favorite styles.
Will have again; worth seeking out.

Purchased at the LCBO in a 4pk of 12oz bottles- $13.10

A- Very good. Opened well and poured a nice light foamy head that stayed for minutes

S- WOW this is the best yeasty beer I have had in a while. Have had a few Saison but this one is fantastic.

T- Almost as good as it smells. This brewery has it going on. Yeast, malt, floral hints from coriander. Slightly sour.

M- Creamy. Slight bitterness but only at first sip. Saison

O- Excellent! Very good. Had a bomber I bought in Buffalo that I just didn't want to open and now I know what I got.... Will hold that baby for a bit.

Food Pairing

This wonderful Saison paired well with... chicken in a mushroom sauce

Pours a hazy light yellow with tons of head. Nice soapy lacing down the glass. Smells of wheat and banana in the nose. There is a hint of spice notes as well. Tastes of sweet malt, spices, whole wheat and definitely more than a hint of alcohol. This is a very refreshing wheat beer although I feel it's a little over carbonated for my taste.

Appearance: Bright pour, terrific white head that lingers.

Smell: Smelled clean like a pilsener with a hint of spiciness.

Taste: This is where the spiciness really hit me: on my tastebuds. Delicious, without being heavy-handed.

Mouthfeel: Medium/light body. Quite refreshing.

Drinkability: Very tasty and drinkable. Cloying Saisons drive me crazy. The even-handed ones like this make me appreciate the style and brewing skill. Well done.

Tang- it tasted would wonderful slight bias as I'm a huge wit beer fan. It tastes great prefect balance of wheat and that slight sweetness with subtle notes of citrus.

Odor- smells like a heavy wit beer and the smell of yeast rolls.

Manifestation- Normally I pour beer into a glass with this being my first one I didn't really car so much. Most beer disappoints. However there was clearly sediment in the bottle. It had a slight frothy head upon opening from me rotating the bottle but it wasn't shaken.

Great beer.

S- nice fruity/yeast esters

T- a nice flavor profile. It's got the yeast/banana flavors of a traditional wheat but with some nice earthy hops crispness

M- a little thicker and fuller than a more traditional wheat, but it fits the flavor profile well

O- a great, slightly nontraditional wheat beer.

The beer comes in a slightly hazy golden green yellow white wine color.

The aroma has banana, clove, a bit of citrus peel, a substantial bready sweetness. Quite sticky sweet for the style.

The flavor continues with that familiar banana and clove. A bit of orange rind. Some artificial banana flavor. Lots of peppery spice. A good amount of that phenolic note. There’s almost an alcohol or metallic flavor in there too. Lots of carbonation and a bit of drying on the finish.

Had this blind with Tank 7 and that beer won out by a bit. This just didn’t have enough refreshing notes and was a bit sweet.

bottle into pint glass
Appearance- Hazed over and light golden, 2.5 fingers of fluffy head recedes into .5 finger that stays for the duration, thick lacing.

Smell- Citrus, various spices like clove, anise, tropical fruits, yeasty, little funk

Mouthfeel/Taste- Carb is very lively and effervescent, medium/full body but appears lighter due to carb, light sweetness. Flavor follows nose with citrus and tropical fruit, spicy clove and ginger, light bready malts and yeast. Alcohol is almost 8% but well hidden, nearly imperceptible. Finishes fairly dry with faint hop bitterness, maybe a whiff of alcohol.

Overall- Tasty beer, full of big flavor. I really liked the lively carbonation - great mouthfeel on this brew. Crisp. The head is impressively big and fluffy, aromatic. Can't think of anything bad to say, other than I wish it wasn't so expensive!
