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 (505) - 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.

scarletfire65 (1272) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2016
Draft at Kasey’s Tavern in Chicago. A full bodied, yeasty saison with banana and clove notes. Pretty clean, light bitterness. Getting a bit of white pepper and stonefruits as well. Warm bread malts. Needs more carbonation and funk for my saison tastes.

odinstyr (686) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2016
Pours a hazy amber with a minimal head. Smells of barnyard, bread. Taste is sweet, mildly bitter, mildly sour and moderately spiced - pepper and fruity esters.

sawbuck (588) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2016
Aroma of cloves, lemon, fresh grass. Cloudy Golden color with huge fluffy white head, lasts forever. Sweet up front. Some lemon, candy sweet malt, with a nice yeast flavor. Bitterness is dry, peppercorns and mild hops throughout. Refreshing, light mouthfeel. Finish is smooth and balanced. Nice beer.

LowBrau (105) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - APR 7, 2016
UPDATED: APR 8, 2016 Pours a hazy pale yellow with a gigantic head. Intriguingly tart while nicely balanced. Medium tartness, light sweet, light bitter. Apple/fruity and funky/Belgian-y and slightly earthy, metallic, citrusy, and spicy aromas.

woodychevy (793) - - APR 2, 2016
On tap at Bohemian Bull. Ommegang just can’t really go wrong with the saisons. Light yellow hazy pour. Classic saison notes that are nicely balanced and not over-the-top. Bit of spice and yeast and citrus and green grass- dry on the end. Just really well done. Tastes like spring, Cooperstown style.

Sirmixsomewhat (171) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Glimmerglass ist gut. It’s tart and it’s as easy on the eyes as it is on the tongue. For a seasonal brew, it’s another strong product from the best brewery there is (that may be more of a subjective statement).

smith4498 (3432) - Miami, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Pours cloudy straw color with white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast with some grass, lemon, and spices. Grassy, fruity, and doughy flavors with some spices. Light to medium body with lively carbonation.

AdamChandler (4187) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2015
hazy orange 2 finger yellowish head. smells really good. a strange spice like chamomile or aloe? maybe thyme as well? the spice dominates the flavor but it’s still a solid beer would have it again

Shag (2765) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Copper color with white head. Faint aroma of caramel and herbal notes. This beer is earthy as like the earth. Some caramel and citrus. Malty flavor with caramel an citrus. This is OK I expect a bit more from Ommegang. Overall not impressed.

Bottle. Pours a light golden color with a thick head. Aroma of citrus, light fruit, yeast and spice. Taste of yeast, citrus, fruit and bit of pepper. Tart bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp with clean feel. Enjoyable beer.
