look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a Duvel tulip. The beer pours hazy golden with lots of visible tiny bubbles and a thick white head. Plenty of lacing is left behind on the side of the glass. The aroma is of pilsner malt and lots of floral hops with some citrus in the nose as well. I also get some peppery notes with clove and maybe a bit of a tropical fruit note. The flavors are quite complex and live up to the bright nose. I get the floral hops, citrus, tropical fruits, pepper, and bready pilsner malt along with the banana and clove flavors from the yeast. It has strong saison like characteristics in the flavor and everything comes together excellently. The body is medium with strong carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry and this is a very refreshing summer beer despite clocking in at near 6.8% ABV. This is an excellent beer.

4.83/5  rDev +20.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured bottle into glass. 6.8% abv

Appearance- Dull yellow and extremely cloudy. Massive foamy head with great retention. A great amount of yeast sediment also.

Smell- Fresh floral aroma with strong sugary aromas of apricot and orange. It smells quite sweet, not much unlike that of candy.

Taste- The citrus zest of orange is apparent early in the flavor profile. This moves on to an earthy hop bitterness midway that is spot on for this style. Hops are apparent as the name imparts. The sweet sugar taste lingers through the hops and the spicy finish is reminiscent of fresh ground black pepper.

Mouthfeel- Not heavy, but moderate. Just right for a beer labeled as a Summer seasonal. Granted, this is 6.8% abv, so props to Ommegang for making this feel like a 5% beer when it is not. The spicy yeast finish with the generous hop addition make the great complexity and depth of this beer linger in the palate.

Overall- Outstanding! So much going on with this beer and great for the Summer. Another masterpiece from Ommegang and a top shelf Belgian pale ale. I will need to get more of this fine seasonal offering.
