Appearance gets a five in my book. Very fluffy creamy head that very slowly dissipates leaving some sticky suds on the side. Bright straw yellow with a pretty nice amount of carbonation. Very cloudy, yet still bright. Cant see through this one at all.

Smells also great, fresh cut grass and hay with a touch of funk barnyard. There's a yeasty spice to it that just reminds me of a spring day. Exactly what I would expect on a fresh spring day. Did I mention fresh?

Taste is great as well, there's a spicy herbal hop note in there that mixes well with a somewhat tart hay and light cracker malt flavour. It strays a touch from the smell but still highly drinkable.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and refreshing. Doesn't feel overly carbonated which is good since the head and appearance suggested it could be.

Overall, this is a solid offering from Ommegang. It's a great spring beer and one I'll look forward to having again. It's not overly hoppy as one would think by the description on the label. It's kinda like a mix between a saison and a Belgian pale ale, with added hop notes. A nice blend of malt, tart, hay, funk, and hops. Not overly doing it in any category.
