After a fantastic time at Belgium comes to Cooperstown, I figured it was about time for me to get some Ommegang ratings up, starting with my favorite of their line.

Served in a tulip glass at just above fridge temperature.

A - Pours a hazy apricot gold color with a huge, pillowy head composed of large bubbles near the surface and tiny bubbles at the top. Lacing is clingy and dense. Makes my mouth water just looking at it... Wonderful!

S - Sweet but subtle summer fruitiness behind a thin veil of organic, hop-laced hay. Bright and fresh despite the sour farmhouse notes. Very well done; captures the essence of this style exquisitely.

T - First on the tongue is a honey sweetness wrapped around a tiny nugget of fresh, leafy hops. Slight bitterness reveals itself in the middle along with a mild tartness to balance the sweet. The finish is organic, yeasty, slightly bitter, and moderately dry. Alcohol warmth becomes prevalent with the deliciously bittersweet aftertaste.

M - Enters the mouth slightly viscously and wells up into a gentle sea of round and creamy foam. Despite the largeness in the mouth, it goes down very smoothly. Mouthfeel improves as it warms.

D - This is a fantastically tasty brew and a great example of this style. Easy to drink, easy to go in for the next sip. Well done, Ommegang!

Appearance: LIght hazy golden color with a nice chunky head that thins out but persists for the entire beer. When poured into a duvel tulip the carbonation goes on and on and on.

Smell: Sweet spicy n phenolic

Taste: Just started getting into this saison style but definitely a yummy beer. Lemony tartyness that turns into a mildly sweet middle and finally a nutty/earthy finish at the end. Love the spicy aftertaste on this one. The alcohol is definitely there but it's not overwhelming at all

Very drinkable beer. Had this on my balcony on a nice summer night in Florida and it hit the spot juuust right
