had a whole keg of this with the boys this week. pours a hazy bright yellow colow with very excited carbonation and a thick bone white head thats lasts forever. smells farmy, like wild yeasts and wheat malt. really funky nose with some spice as well. flavor is equally interesting and the yeast is the star. it has a bitter lemon rind component and a peppery barnyard finish. excellent saison. mouthfeel is magnificent. its effervescent carbonation and medium unfiltered body make it a pleasure to drink. the abv is a total sneak, and can really do you in if you arent careful. its not noticeable at all. overall another epic brew from ommegang.

A: golden in appearance, pours about 2-3 fingers worth of pure white foam, huge carbonation, and enormous lacing.

S: similar smell to a hefeweizen. I pick up a lot of lemon citrus, cloves, mild peppery spices, and yeast. Mild hops with a very slight hint of mango, burn of alcohol is present.

T: similar aspects as the nose (lemon zest, peppery spices, cloves, mild hops). In addition, there is a very nice tart funkiness along with mild alcohol presence. As it warms up, I find more orange peel coming through. Nice complexity.

M: medium bodied, leaves a nice tart/funkiness on the teeth that is quite desirable. Hops are also more noticeable after the finish adding another nice component to this brew and the carbonation is spot on for this brew

O: I had tried this one along time ago and wasn’t a huge fan. But now with a more developed palate, I can appreciate this style and this offering by Ommegang. All around this is an excellent offering for this style and the complexity is rather high. It has a high drinkability and has a great finish that works well during a hot summer day.

P:  Slight haze in a pale golden furiously carbonated body. Topped with a thin airy white head that fades quick to a silky white top. 

S:  Delicate nose of rustic earthy yeast, spices, timid funk, apples, apricots and a subtle sweetness. 

T/M:  Medium body and prickly carbonation deliver a powdery and semi dryness to the palate. Taste follows the nose with robust spices, a dash of tart lemon and a touch of medicinal flavor in the back of the throat. Once warmed a sting of grain alcohol and subtle white grapes grace the palate. 

O:  I really liked the mellowness of this complex masterpiece. The rustic flavors and balanced tart and sweet is very succulent.  A solid saison.
