3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold color. Very high carbonation. Aromas of hay, cow manure, and bananas. Has a sharp phenolic taste. Citrus peel as well perhaps? It was quite good, but not equal to its reputation.

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a huge, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Fruity, hoppy aroma with citrus, yeast, coriander and alcohol. Sweet, hoppy, citrus flavour of orange peel with yeast, coriander, honey and a hint of alcohol, ending on a slightly tart, dry, bitter note. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

One of those bottles Iíve passed by on the shelf so many times. First go at a saison with this one. Pours golden with lasting, dense white top. Aromas of fruit, spice, and lemon. Similar in flavor, but with more of the witbier character. Iíve enjoyed better wheats, so while this is good, and tasty, and great looking.... it doesnít strike me as outstanding.

I poured it from the bottle into a red plastic cup. Itís a party. It pours a cloudy golden and orange color with a big, white, and fluffy head. The aroma is orange, spice, and bread. The taste is orange, spice, banana, and Belgian yeast. Iím a big fan of both Ommegang and Saison. This did not disappoint.

4-pack at the LCBO with 7.7% ABV. Pours a cloudy golden colour with some nice tiny particles in the bottom of the glass. The head is fluffy, white, decent lasting and foamy lacing. Orange nose with some Belgian Ale yeast. Same for the taste with decent mild hops in the finish with hints of grass. Nice and smooth saison that goes down easily with lots of citrus.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. It pours cloudy golden with a decent fluffy white head. The nose is soft, doughy, cereal, fruity, spicy action, herbal, grassy, nougat, banana, orange rind, brioche and toasty grain. The taste is smooth, doughy, crisp grassy bitterness, spice, ripe banana, apple, pear drops, some alcohol boost, orange peel and toasty grain with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body and moderate-high foamy carbonation. True to style and could easily pass for a Belgian creation. Tasty.

Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a clear light yellow, with a huge fluffy white head that persists. Good lacing. Nose is faint aroma of Belgian yeast and light malt. Taste is lightly malted grain and Belgian yeast notes of cloves and bananas. Mouth feel is medium, and the finish is crisp and dry. Nice.

Bright gold body with a tight bubbled white head. The nose draws in wheat, yeast, spices. The tongue shares that experience with the additions of white pepper and coriander. A rock solid saison.
