This beer was poured out of a 12 ounce bottle. Served cool.

The body is Lemondrop yellow with a very thick White head

Smells like cloves and hay

Very herbal taste somewhat bitter, cloves and medicinal herbs. Very slight boozy finish

Well carbonated

This is a very nice. I would certainly have again

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.
