COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delectable saison is brewed especially for the 2012 Glimmerglass Festival Season, it opens with full flavor and carbonation – then fruit, spice and malt aromas. The flavors then expand into a crescendo of complex tastes and body. The finish is gentle, with a touch of sweetness and a lingering note of spice.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by Beerpig317- looks like about 50% of the ratings of this came from Bunker. What a guy. Pours a bright but cloudy golden color with a finger of white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, lemongrass, white pepper, straw, barnyard funk, and melon. Flavor of bready and sweet malts, lemon citrus, apricot, funk, grass, herbs, sawdust, and pepper. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a bright, lightly funky mouthfeel. Really nice saison. Glad I got to try it.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Cloudy yellow in color with white head. Dry and flavorful with number of great flavors like yeast,lemon and spice. This beer is very carbonated and has almost a sparkling wine like feel.

Tmoney99 (11099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle shared by BeerPig317. Poured a hazy amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate lemon citrus, spice and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet tart citrus flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectation where met.

Bottle to snifter (thanks Bunker). Looks good; a hazy orange with thin white lacing. Smells nice; like a good saison. Tastes solid, mildly sweet with a little zip. Average on the palate. Good beer.

Bottle from the shop at Ommegang, at the campsite at BCTC. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Lemony musk, funky yeast on the nose. Big and musky, toast, malt and lemon. Sweet malt, zesty with more lemon and yeast, musk on the finish.
