4.21/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A - nice light golden color with so much carbonation that the beer almost looked like champagne.

S - great slightly fruity smell that filled the immediate area almost as soon as the bottle was open.

T - a well balanced brew with a citrus flavor upfront. The flavor left on the palate I found to be almost cider-like.

M - very crisp and light due to the high carbonation; also dry, again very reminiscent of cider/champagne.

O - very good beer. I would suggest this during spring and summer. I bought this for a snowy Maine night and I think my choice might have been better with something a bit heavier.

Another hit from ommegang!
they literally know how to hit a "home run" with beer!
My dad went straight there from bhof ..I can see why now.

A-straw like golden with a huge foamy head resembling shaving cream.

S-yeast,cloves,spices,bread...slight funk

T-citrus ,clove,spicy very crisp and well balanced.

M- highly carbonated ,no real funk after tones,dryness..very nice.
I easily downed one in about 2 minutes.

O- this is a uniquely presented brew. although its not a traditional abv or representation of the styles,it is very drinkable and refreshingly smooth.
I always keep this beer in my rotation.
another great thing about this saison is that it seems to age better on shelves.
other saisons have floaties in them sometimes..

purchased at total wine in naples ,florida for 9.99$ for the 4 pk.

picked up a 4 pak at Moe's Beer City center st. Jupiter, fla

nose - pumpkin pie spice in the background, weiss malt
pours - a tremendous head 6-7" which dissipates quickly with good lacing
appears to be naturally carbonated ,hazy straw colour.

1st taste spices as they said caribe spices hops not noted , light weiss finish

this reminds me of a belgian ale Palm, Heffe and a few others , and leaves monk in my trunks ,blue mooned you ale in the dust

Even tho not a fan of Saison or weiss style beers , it's better than most i have tried so i rate it near 4

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Hazy, golden color with bright white head and some large beading. Nice carbonation and decent lacing. Good head retention as well.

Smell: Very complex. Spicy and earthy with plenty of character from the Belgian yeast. Fruity notes with some sweet orange peel present and a bit of tanginess.

Taste: Spicy Belgian yeast with a sweet, tangy character as well. A little citrusy at the finish and a bit floral too.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, yet light and refreshing. Very style appropriate.

Overall: Easily my favorite example of this style so far. Complex, refreshing and delicious. Works well during any season. The orange peel is very apparent and the grains of paradise and coriander add a spicy complexity that's great with the Belgian yeast. The tanginess and hints of citrus add even more to the depth of this beer.
