2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014
2014-04-14, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7.7% ABV, 6-3-7-3-13=32
Cloudy darker blond color with small compact head. The aroma is delicate, light fruity and spicy presence. Good strength, with high carbonation, then enough smooth; some malt/wheat flavor, spices (but also some anise among them, not a favorite one), a touch of oranges; the bitterness is a bit stronger than other beers in the category, while the moderate sweetness reveals the American origin; in the final there are light traces of vegetables, a real turn off although in small doses.
Good but not as elegant.
2007-12-17, corked bottle, 6-3-6-3-11=29
Hazy golden color. Dry aroma, spicy and with some plastic. Dry flavor too, light saccharin sweetness, a bit of plastic, some citrus fruit, peels. Not so interesting.
2003-07-26, corked bottle, 7.5% ABV, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Golden color; big head. Like a Grand Cru, a wheat character in the aroma and taste. Quite malty.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Perhaps my favorite brew from the Ommegang crew. I’ve had on many occasions and it never disappoints. Pours a gold color with a nice white head. Smells of spice and citrus. Mild carbonation and a crisp, sweet taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. (trade with the_epeeist) A hazy, orange-yellow beer with a dense, white head. Sweetish nose with honey, some peach, a touch of alcohol and bittering hops. Sweet and slightly bitter, herbal flavor that is quite fruity. Full-bodied, with a long, sweet finish with fruityness and some hops. Could use a little more spicyness. Sure pleasant though. (071228)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, alc.?, bottle says 7.5 % and 8.5 %
Hazy pale yellow color, white head. Very fruity, sweetish, slightly hayish and papery hoppy aroma. Sweetish fruit sugar flavor, alcoholic, some pepperness. This is American style saison - too sweet for my liking.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Golden straw color, lots of white foam and great lacing.

M: Medium body, good amount of carbonation for this beer.
D: Delicious Saison, well balanced and interesting.
