L: Opaque dark pink with a big pillowy white head, that fizzes away to a finger of creamy lightly pink film that remains as a cap. Little lacing, though.

S: Smells like a typical saison at first, but then the flavorings begin to reveal themselves. Cracker, hay, and clove initially; and then plum, cherry, grape juice, raspberry, and hints of vanilla-y oak.

T: A big pop of tart cherry, raspberry, plum, and hibiscus. Then crisp cracker with hay and some pepper. Nicely balanced fruit/flavors and the saison base beer. Finishes lightly dry with a touch of warmth going down.

F: Medium, highly carbonated, creamy and fizzy. Dry with some mild tannins.

O: A great ros`e ale! Complex and delicious.

A: The beer is slightly hazy dark rosé in color. It poured with a finger high pink colored head that gradually died down, leaving a short head covering the surface a wide streaks of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of hibiscus flowers are present in the nose along with hints of Belgian yeast.
T: The taste follows the smell and has strong flavors of hibiscus flowers along with hints of green grapes and a light amount of associated sweetness.
M: It feels light to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No dryness is perceptible.
O: This saison is quite "fruity" compared to other beers in the style.

Bottle from The Beermongers.

A clear deep pink with a light pink head with good retention and lacing this looks solid. The nose is a blend of grain, yeast, oak and light hibiscus notes. A little preserved lemon, a touch of earth, mildly floral honey, a little clove are present. The palate opens with a blend of firm Brett funk and some lemon. There's mild acidity that amplifies the grain notes. The grape nice is hardly noticeable, lending a mild fruity sweetness to the palate. A bit overcarbonated, lending to a watery feel, this beer finishes light and floral with a lingering clove and lemon flavor, along with a touch of oak. The oak actually does work really well with the grain and funk. Nice.

This beer pours a gorgeous reddish pink with a solid head. The aroma is funky and slightly vinous,, with notes of berry skin, hay, green onion stalk, and red currant. The flavor is gentle, with soft and slightly tannic berry notes, and hint of watermelon, honeydew, and a gentle farmy quality. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with effusive carbonation. Overall this is a beer more interesting than excellent for me - some cool flavors present, but they do not seem to meld particularly well.

L - Opaque pink with some red hues with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Definitely looks as expected, but I wish there was more head retention.
S - White wine (i.e. the chardonnay grape juice) with floral and light fruit notes (peach, melon, grapefruit) with a little bit of white pepper.
T - Complex. White wine up front - the chardonnay grape juice - with a rather abrupt transition into the yeasty notes of the saison on the back end. Floral notes and white pepper throughout with notes of light fruit (peach, melon, grapefruit, etc.) with a decent amount of tartness along with those very yeasty notes.
F - Medium bodied with a high amount of carbonation - fizzy, but crisp. Maybe a little too much carbonation.
O - This is definitely one to give a try - Ommegang is one of the best American brewers out there that puts out Belgian beers and this is no exception. Experimental and well done.

A: Pours with a nice pink tint. An off white, light pink head forms and rises to over two fingers. That recedes after a minute, but a small cap remains throughout. Light lace is left behind.
S: Yep, very flowery up front. A peppery spice with some phenols. Plenty of citrus rind and a bit pithy in the finish. Very nice.
T: Again, that almost delicate flowery flavor is up front. White pepper, light phenols. Citrus and grapefruit rind, with a bit of bitterness mixed in. A touch of vanilla, and finishes with a grape and vinous character that was almost absent from the nose. This is excellent.
M/O: A medium body with crisp carbonation. Very effervescent and finishes bone dry. Really nice and easy to drink.

I really like this, very well made. This show the rang of what the style can be. Subtle, almost delicate, but there is also a depth of flavor that all integrates perfectly. Well Done.

Poured from a single serve bottle into a tulip

Pours strawberry/peach with a quickly-dissipating fizzy head and decent lacing.

The nose presents with berry, vanilla, white pepper, funk...and plenty of it

The flavor is much more muted than the nose. Strawberry, white grape, and white peach mixed with funk and white pepper. Some saline/brine notes arrive as the beer warms and opens.

The mouthfeel is excellent. Strong but not overpowering carbonation provides a nice crisp dry finish.

Overall, an interesting fruit beer. Recommend for a spin.
