12oz bottle poured into tulip:

A: I admittedly poured this too aggressively tonight, so the head grew out of control, but lasat night I got a beautiful 1-1/2 inch head of fluffy white foam that settles slowly and leaves a lot of sticky lace. Hazy, golden wheat color. Lovely.

S: Banana, clove, and orange peel dominate a subtle, balanced nose. Very bright.

T: tastes like the brightness of the nose suggests, but in a much bolder way: lots of lemon and orange (both fruit and peel), maybe a little bit of banana, and some clove and coriander to round it out. The sweet and tart aspects of this saison are out there far more than in, say, Saison Dupont (which is the gold standard, in my opinion), which sets this nicely apart. There's something like champagne grapes in here, too...

M: effervescent and cleansing throughout, very smooth.

I love this beer. Great with spicy food, and highly drinkable. This is my favorite Ommegang brew, next to Three Philosophers.

Appearance- Hazy straw colored pour, very thick head. Nice and fluffy but it subsides somewhat rapidly.

Smell- Smells strongly of yeast. Smells a little like it might be ester-y. Its smell is a bit on the funky side but its very light.

Taste- Clearly Belgian. Very complex, I can taste the following flavors in the following order: Ester-y burn that transitions quickly into sweet and yeasty, then... It turns to grass(?) and then to hops.

M- Nice carbonation, a little viscosity. Nothing major.

O- Ðid not know this style a lot until fairly recently. I like them a lot and this is a fair example of the style. In fact, this beer is downright delicious.

Note: Bought as part of the Ommegang christmas gift pack.. Well worth it for the price..

pours a straw blonde with a nice white head showing good retention.

The smell is dusty hay with some sweetness and biscuits in the background

Belgian spices and herbs augment a fruity malt.

drinkable, but not as excellent as I had anticipated based on its ratings. Maybe I'm just not big on saisons in general, because it seems well constructed, but I don't envision myself drinking another one any time soon
