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.
