3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a cloudy light golden color with a big white fluffy head and good lacing. Fruit aromas like apple and pear with Belgian yeast and spice. Taste of light fruit with clove and spiciness. Nice earthiness with a bit of funk and slight alcohol taste. Medium bodied with with high carbonation and semi dry finishing is drinkable. Good saison that has Belgian pale ale characteristics.

En fut au Bier Markt Ottawa.
Le nez laisse entrevoir beaucoup d’agrumes qui se confirment en bouche. Orange, pamplemousse, mangue. On dirait une IPA. Très sucrée pour une saison. Délicieuse, mais hors style. texture beaucoup plus ronde qu’une saison traditionnelle.

Slightly hazy golden. Sparkly, almost like champagne. Aroma is ever so slightly funky but also herbal. A hint of bitter apples.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a pale, straw yellow, fluffy white head with nice retention, some floaties. Nose is grassy, some funk, a tad skunky. Mouth is medium bodied, creamy, mild sweetness, lemon zest, bread dough, coriander, grassy, touch metallic (which I also got in the last Ommegang beer I had recently too...). I’ll give them a pass on the skunk, as it’s not their fault the douche-bags at the Jewel don’t understand storing anything about stocking beer other than Old Style and Busch (and it’s as much my fault in that regard for buying craft beer at the Jewel in the first place), but based solely on my previous experiences with other Ommegang beers, overall this one is just another example from of what I find to be an underwhelming brewery.

Clear straw yellow with mountainous head. Fresh bread, lemon, hay. Bright citrus with earthy, slightly bitter funk throughout. Very bubbly - champagne-like as they say. Clean, dry, bitter finish. Enjoyable

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big white lasting head that leaves good lacing. Disappointingly weak aroma of clove, lemon and orange peel. Big flavors of coriander, lemon, clove and butterscotch, medium body, average carbo, medium bitter and light to medium sour and a very very long finish. Great complexity. Very nicely done.

Ommegang brews some of the best Belgian style beers in the US. They all have so much flavor and are so well brewed. This is probably my second favorite of theirs. Tons of banana, citrus and sweet aromas. Taste is more of that banana, lemon and spice. Theres a nice sweetness from the yeast. Overall a superb beer. So much flavor and complexity. Definitely try this if you havent. Cheers!

Very floral aroma to the beer. Tasted of citrus fruits as well as having an earthy funkiness to it. I never had a beer like this. Very interesting and enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 750ml, corked, part of 3 bottle boxed set
Aroma: floral, citrus, vanilla
Appearance: Golden color, hazy, white head, with sediment
Taste: Medium bitter
Palate: Light to medium body, lively carbonation, crisp dry finish
Overall: Very effervescence, nice and dry/crisp finish. Hoppy and bitter, but not overly done. Subtle citrus and other spices. Lots of sediment. One of my favorite "go to" saisons. Easy to find, easy to drink.

Pale golden, highly carbonated pilsner pour with a beautiful, creamy white head. Spicy, fruity & very dry palate & flavor. Finishes slightly bitter, lemony & dry. Very well hidden 7.7% ABV in this one.
