Reviewed from notes date January 27, 2013.

From a 355 ml bottle into a tulip.

A-The brew pours with a big, shiny, white head of foam. The head is slow to fade. The beer is clear and golden in color with a lot of visible carbonation.

S-The smell is spicy and crisp. I detect straw, hay, and lemon, as well as a touch of honey. Underlying the mixture is a powdery yeast scent. Complex and pleasing.

T-The taste follows the smell in flavor and complexity. There is less honey and more lemon (lemon curd to be accurate). The flavors are predominantly dry, grassy, and crisp. The finish is long lasting and drying.

M-Mouthfeel is an example for the style. The brew is nicely carbonated with a lighter body. This brew is crisp and easy to drink, but full of flavor.

O-This is one of my favorite saisons ever (new or old world). Ommegang really hits on all cylinders here: the brew is good looking, it smells nice (love the crisp lemon and honey), the taste is complex, and the feel is well-matched to the flavor profile. I will definitely drink this again.

Pours a brilliant golden straw with a thick intense head which lingers forever. Surprisingly little lacing.

Smell is citrusy, predominantly lime. also a vague fruitiness and spiciness.

Taste is a muted version of the nose. Not unpleasant in the least, but not as flavorful as I had hoped given the awesome smell.

Mouthfeel seems a bit off for me. Perhaps undercarbonated, but given the massive head, perhaps something else is off. Can't put my finger on it.

Overall a really good beer which is very close to being a top notch beer.

A - Poured a cloudy honey orange with tons of big bubbles and a very pretty white 1 1/2 finger head

S - Smells of orange, malts, spices, and bread.

T - I tasted the sweet citurs flavors up front, but as it finishes tastes of spices like corriander come out. There is some grassyness to the beer and it has a bitter finish

M - Light to medium bodied. When poured there are lots of big bubbles, but they seem to dissappear quickly and arent noticable when drinking. Very crisp

O - Great beer. Lots going on and its balanced fairly well. I couldn't sit down and drink more than a couple though.
