Poured hazy golden with a thick head into a tulip. The head dissipated into a lasting thin sheet. little to no lacing.
aroma was bright, fresh, banana, coriander, pink peppercorn, sourdough, wet leaves, and alcohol.
the carb was lively on the palate with a crisp finish and warm heat down the throat.
taste was light sour with lingering alcohol.
all and all, a delicious saison. someone pass the cheese.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Tons of carbonation, be careful with a tulip glass.
Light yellow with a bit of amber in color.
Rather complex in smell. Earthy scents with some spicy and fruity ones as well. Described as hoppy by ommegang but I didn't get that much to warrant such a description.
Tastes yeasty, spicy, banana, aromatic hops. Rather dry.
Feels dry, a tiny bit of sweet malts. Spices are tasted after the rest dissipated.
Enjoyed this saison rather highly. Probably one of the better options ommegang has, behind three philosophers.

Beautiful pour is a bubbly dream: effervescent tangerine with a one finger champagne cap. This is a fantastic farmhouse saison & it sets the bar for the style high. I get tart candy, funky yeast, & slight spicing in each sip. The finish is brisk, with a squirt of squeezed lemon. Glad I stumbled onto this at the LCBO. I may even let Helsdon in on its location as he covets the stuff.

Bottle at home from Bottle shop Canterbury split with Sarah. Translucent yellow straw colour with a big ol’ lively white head. Aroma is nice saison yeast, wheat, camomile, orange and spices. Flavour is doughy wheat, orange , light spices. Palate is effervesceny , light and refreshing. Decent saison, not as good as some Partizan grisettes.

As good as any US saison I’ve had in recent memory. Dry, big line of fruity spice, cinnamon, fizzy finish and good drive. Alcohol fills out the palate nicely but overall a delicate palate weight.

Tap at happy gnome. 10oz pour. Light gold with small white head. Floral but subtle, smells of a tiny bit of alcohol. Crisp saison types of flavor. Very crisp and easy to drink. Some oily mouthfeel with a lot of spice. A good go to beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy, pale golden color with a huge head. The aroma is malt and mildly sweet fruit, but the flavor is dryer and stronger than the flavor implies. Not delicate at all. Grapefruit and bananas on the front. The nearly 8% ABV is present in the flavor. The finish is bright. This ale is substantial.
