3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Hazy blonde color. Powerful almost pungent but semi-pleasant aroma of hops & fruit. Apply-raisin and bubbly dry sensation. A good introduction to the Saisons for me. Enjoyable, but more interesting than anything. [$3.99/25oz]

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
*12 oz. bottle* Look: Hazy golden blonde body, 1 1/2 finger white soapy head. Smell: Tart citrus, spices, hay, yeasty, hints of earthy quality tobacco, mild funk. Taste: Tart citrus (Lemon peel) wheat and oats, honey, hint of a fruit (pear), sweet and dry and slightly sour. Feel: Medium-light body, very active carbonation. Overall: This is very delicious. One of the prime examples of the style. I have no problem drinking a four pack of this all Summer/Fall long. For it being almost 8% it isn’t detectable. This brew is recommended.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour is a translucent pale gold with a soapy white head. The aroma is of lemon, orange, mild spices, and some light floral notes. The mouthfeel is very soda-like with stinging carbonation. The initial flavour, as the brew comes in contact with the taste buds, is very yeasty. As the brew passes the tongue, sharp citrus notes explode and mingle with the rounded yeasty notes. It’s when the rounded yeast and the sharp citrus combine you start to taste some banana. As you exhale, spices explode for a second before it almost instantaneously subdues making it a really nice complementary flavour. The finish is lightly dry due to the hops and sharp citrus. This is a very well-rounded beer. I’m not usually a big fan of saisons, but this one is delicious.

From bottle. Pours hazy light gold, very lively. Big fluffy white head that sticks around leaving strong lacing once eventualy dissipated. Banana, passion fruit, bread and hay malts on the nose. Sweet and fruity in the mouth, with citrus and some ginger spice mixed in with the barnyard yeastiness. Bitterness afterwards. Has a light-medium body and very lively fizzing on the tongue. Really nice overall.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 New York State has a lot going for it. It is the capitial of an economic empire and the home of Brewery Ommegang. This is an excellent beer. The color is a nice cloudy medium yellow, with a beautiful long lasting head. The taste is to my tooth, dry, with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Amazing fruitiness and herbiness in the aroma. Slightly cloudy, golden appearance with a pillowy head. Nicely high level of carbonation on the tongue. Tastes wonderful! Has a moderate funkiness to go with the fruity and herbal notes. One of my absolute favorite beers.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, while it was crisp and refreshing, this was just way too sweet for me, tasted like grenadine.
