12 oz. bottle. Pours gold with a slight haze. Effervescent head which diminishes quickly. Aroma is citrus including lemon, banana and apple with yeast and spice. Taste is banana and clove with earthiness and yeast. Coriander also shines through. Mouthfeel is light and bubbly true to the style. Really good saison.

355ml bottle from Beer Culture, New York. My first beer from this brewery and I must say that I was impressed. Well brewed with great aroma and flavour. Itís a shame I didnít have time to try some more Ommegang beers.

FROM NOTES: July 3, í12
750 mL bottle poured into a goblet.
A: A classic saison nose with sweet lemon, peppery spice, chalky yeast, light damp funk, and some floral hops.
A: Pours a cloudy golden orange in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense white head that slowly reduces to a thick ring and significant lacing.
T: Has a nice light fruit taste, banana with orange and spice. Solid hop backing gives it a nice finish. Very balanced ale that has wonderful Belgian qualities. Alcohol is well hidden.
P: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp.
O: This is a solid saison. It doesnít have an overpowering yeast presence and has solid balance. Itís definitely worth trying.
