4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle. A bit of gas at first in aroma, but vanilla cake and fruity citrus aroma. Lovely lookin cloudy gold with white lacing head. The spice (pepper and banana) hits the taste buds first, followed by vanilla, bread, yeast and assorted fruit. My only complaint is that it has a slightly oily feel. Other than that, this beer reminds me why I have to go to Belgium someday.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Head is initially large, frothy, rocky, white, fully lasting.
Body is hazy medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of lemon zest, pepper, gum, sulfur, hay.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Shockingly good, or at least this sample is. Very peppery, zesty, herbal, saison-ish nose with great flavor balance...when I first smelled it I was immediately reminded of Saison Dupont, believe it or not. Very dry/crisp finish with nice yeasty tartness, and a fluffy mouthfeel. And look at that head! Geez...enormous meringue thing that lasts til the very last traces of liquid remain in the glass. Best new (to me) beer from Ommegang since that first batch of Hop House rolled into Colorado a couple years ago (which was also a 4.1 for me, but subsequent batches didn’t measure up). To reference the theme of the beer, they certainly knocked this one out of the park. Gonna have to give this the 4-pack test for sure.

Tap at Draught 55 heading up to inlaws lake house in Cooperstown in a few weeks so cheers to that. Golden pour. Nose is yeast and tropical fruit. Tastes of banana, cloves, coriander, yeast, papaya, herbal, and lemongrass. Soft palate. Lovely post gym beer this afternoon

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of funky yeast, bready and wheat malt, wheat and some floral hops and pears. Body is medium and creamy. Herbal hops, funky yeast, wheat malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent brew.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Just like the description. Has the nice characteristic smell and flavor of a Belgian brew. Every molecule passes through the characteristic Belgian yeast imparting a sour but yummy flavor that groes on you! This is really good. But not terribly strong. Good summer beer for those who appreciate the yeasty nature of Belgian beers or stronger German weizen grogs.
