Pours a clear bright orange color with a full head and plenty of carbonation. The smell is slight with a hint of a Hefe style brew. The initial taste is also Hefe like as first, then sweet and a slight boozy aftertaste, but hidden nicely. The feel is thinner but flavorful as well. Overall, this is a great brew and the 1st Saison style that I've ever tried, definitely want to track down some more.

Starts good and ends good. Nothing fancy here. Just a good beer.

Really nice aroma of citrus rind,yeast,floral,citrus fruit. Taste was very similar and it was just a bit sweet. Had an interesting spice bite that lingered in the aftertaste. Was glad that I tried it and would seek this out again

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into tulip.
So I was pouring slowly and no head was forming until all of the sudden and it was gushing over the sides. Left me with a four finger white crown. The beer itself, what's left anyway, is a golden color. Not necessarily clear but can make out my finger on the other side of the glass.
The smell is straw like with notes of lemon. Pretty underwhelming.
The taste of this is is pretty much the same. Lemony and straw like but underwhelming for my liking.
The mouthfeel is probably my favorite part about this brew. It's soft and bubbly, almost like a champagne.
Overall, I expected more from this. It's just pretty average and underwhelming. Balanced and crisp, might be better on a hot summer day.

A beautiful beer, nice copper color with thick, two finger head. Part of an Ommegang gift set (with the glass), it has a nice aroma and taste, but doesn’t stick to the palate (no aftertaste). Otherwise, a nice Belgian from Ommegang. Can’t wait to try the rest....
