3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 pint 9 oz. corked and cage bottle poured into my Ommegang tulip. Nice hazy golden color with an eggshell head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is of lemon grass, earth, and flowers. Taste was great. Ommegang really hit the nail on the head as far as their hop selection with this one. Not overly bitter but nice and dry with some coriander flavor in the middle. Little over carbonated but no big deal. Really enjoyed this one.

Very good quality saison. Strong piney aroma. The quality is apparent from the pour. Huge everlasting head and fantastic majestic head and color structure in the tulip glass. Solid structure with each sip. It’s a steady progression of the carbonation, the hops, pine, "barnyard" grassy flavor (in best way), pepper and dry finish. Compared to Dupont it seems more assured that you know what you get each time with this bottle. Dupont can be more hit or miss...sometimes for the better but often not. This strikes me as a more consistent drink. Very well done.

(bottled). Beautiful golden color, brilliantly clear. Rich malt dominates the aroma with whiffs of sour fruit, yeast, and faint green apple. Big malt leads the flavor in this medium-bodied, effervescent ale. Subdued peach flavor and a nice spice addition. Assertive hops complement a soft, lingering finish with candi-like sweetness and peppery, warming alcohol. A gem, though lacking the mustiness I love in some of the Belgians.

Lager style body and color with large white head. Not much for Saisons. But still alright for a Belgian Ale.

This one has some nice flavors but it is just not my style. The beer looks pretty good though. I drank the whole 4 pack but I will never get it again.

Used to be one of my favorite beers. Very few beers have better quality for the price.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice fluffy white head atop a golden, slightly cloudy and bubbly body. Lots of lacing as it goes down. Aroma is slightly barnyard and the taste is sharp and crisp, but with a quick finish. Somewhat alcoholic or tart, but thanks to the quick end it makes for a drinkable and interesting beer.

Tons of hay along with some pepper, esters and a touch of barnyard in the aroma. The taste brings more of the same, with some citrus notes. Beautiful, dry finish. Dangerously good at 7.7%!

My first saison and I am now a fan. Love the champagne-like palate, very bubbly and dry. Nose has the banana characteristics of a hefe.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. The color is a nice solid gold. The head is white, fluffy and huge like a Duvel. The aroma is full of yeast, clove and fruit. Very scrumptuous. The flavor is robust and fruity. Smooth finish for a crisp clean brew. Excellent.
