Slightly hazy straw gold pour with a thick white one-finger head. Big yeasty aroma. Taste has strong pepper, yeast and grain flavors upfront backed by even more pepper on the back of the tongue. Light bodied and highly carbonated.

25.4 oz. bottle consumed over two days with various Yuletide snacks. Used Ommegang's proprietary tulip as a vessel.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy straw with a big white head. Looks great. Terrific saison presentation.

Aroma: Good nose. Grass, funky yeast, citrus/orange rind/lemon, hay, earth.

Taste: Follows nose. Orange rind leads the way and is right on the the edge of overpowering without going over it. Tasty saison. Doesn't quite equal the appearance and nose with the taste, but that's a high bar.

Mouthfeel: Very easy on the palate for such a complex, flavorful beer. Alcohol is noticeable but not painful.

Overall: Excellent saison. Recommended to anyone. Up to the hype, I'd say.

Appearance is pale straw yellow and hazy, with a light creamy white foam cap. Aroma is spicy phenols, grass, coriander, lemon, and a hint of brett. Taste is light bready malt, pepper, coriander, orange peel, tangerine,and an acidic tartness. Mouthfeel is medium, somewhat full for a saison, with a slight creamy body and high carbonation. Finishes with a crisp dry bitterness and tartness. Spicy coriander and slight brett lingers.

Oh my god this beer is delicious. This is definitely the best saison I've ever had. I can't really taste the alcohol at all. One of the tastiest beers I've ever had period.
