4.46/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A:
Pours an insanely effervescent hazy pale straw with a beautiful tiny-bubbled white head that stays around as good as could be hoped for. Great retention; nice even strings of gloppy lacing. Almost perfect.

S:
Spicy phenolic yeast notes pervade with a somewhat hoppy background. White pepper, banana, cloves, vanilla, medicinal hops, lemon zest.

T:
Soft and slightly sweet with a tremendous yeast flavor. Orange creamsicle, dough, dandelion, hay and a finish with the tiniest touch of hops.

M:
Slick, creamy, and quick. Almost coats the old mouth, but has a clean finish with a nice level of carbonation (especially considering how violent it looks in the glass).

O:
Seriously...
I keep waiting to have a beer by these guys that I don't love, but alas, this one didn't do it.
Once again, despite being American, Ommegang has made a stellar Belgian style (something that is all too rare, in my opinion).
Beautiful beer with a nice summery nose and a taste that perfectly balances the line between being sweet, refreshing, and hoppily dry.
One of the best examples I have yet had of one of my favorite styles.
Will have again; worth seeking out.

Purchased at the LCBO in a 4pk of 12oz bottles- $13.10

A- Very good. Opened well and poured a nice light foamy head that stayed for minutes

S- WOW this is the best yeasty beer I have had in a while. Have had a few Saison but this one is fantastic.

T- Almost as good as it smells. This brewery has it going on. Yeast, malt, floral hints from coriander. Slightly sour.

M- Creamy. Slight bitterness but only at first sip. Saison

O- Excellent! Very good. Had a bomber I bought in Buffalo that I just didn't want to open and now I know what I got.... Will hold that baby for a bit.

Food Pairing

This wonderful Saison paired well with... chicken in a mushroom sauce

Enjoy!

Pours a hazy light yellow with tons of head. Nice soapy lacing down the glass. Smells of wheat and banana in the nose. There is a hint of spice notes as well. Tastes of sweet malt, spices, whole wheat and definitely more than a hint of alcohol. This is a very refreshing wheat beer although I feel it's a little over carbonated for my taste.
