COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Glimmerglass - The name given to our lake by James Fenimore Cooper - is a beautiful body. Nested between gentle mountains, it reflects any object held up to it, just as it reflects our joy at the arrival of each spring. To help celebrate, pour new spring saison offers a perfect balance of maltiness and hops, with a touch of yeasty fruitiness and a whiff of pepper.

fishonmyplane (500) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2014
Peppery with tons of yeast, some light lemon zest and pretty good malt/hop balance. Full-bodied, but the low ABV for the style helps keep it refreshing.

Aurelius (4603) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2015
Apricot tan brew with a fluffy, ivory, clingy head. Standard 12 oz longneck, shiny green label. Nice yeasty Belgian aroma with spice. Sweet, fruity, pastry tones, a hint of warming alcohol. Tangy up front and pleasantly effervescent. Loses a little body towards the warming backend. Not very bitter. Tasty and well done. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Steve_0 (3268) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2015
On tap at Happy Gnome. Pour is clear golden with a small white head and decent lacing. Highly phenolic, Belgian yeasty, biscuit, light lemons, pepper and herbs in the aroma. Taste is white pepper, some lemons, herbal, light grass, coriander, and yeast. Light body with high carbonation. Not my favorite type of saison, but decently built.

fiveacestx (721) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle - medium yellow in color with a full chunky head. A very sweet perfume aroma and sweet taste. Some lemon peel in there as well as Belgian yeast and grassy dry. Light to medium body. One of the better saisons out there in my opinion.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - APR 1, 2015
Hazy gold with an inch of off-white head, medium coarseness, moderate fast rate of decay. Aroma is lemon, lemon grass, semi-sweet wheat bread. Body is watery-oily, somewhat starchy, medium-medium-light weight, moderate carbonation/burn. Flavor is a tart, lemony wheat grain, touch of peppery spiciness/yeastiness, tingly. This definitely is growing on me and punches above its abv and initial impression. A very nice effort by Ommegang, living up to my expectation for their beers, which is saying something.
