Bottled; my first saison. Hazy golden coloring with an aroma of cloves and fruits. The flavor was mostly orange with some light spice. A very enjoyable, easy-drinking high gravity 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.

Belgian yeasty, vanilla, a bit sweet, and nearly goddamn perfect. Mind you I just ran a half marathon, so most swill would taste awesome at this point

Refreshing and easy drinking saison with a deceptively stout ABV, but no arguments here. Good balance.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I realized the other day I hadnít rated this beer. Which is nuts because itís one of my absolute everyday favourites (not that I can get it in Ontario anymore. Thanks LCBO, you suck.) So I figured Iíd hit 100 with a great beer.
Pours a cloudy golden, with a couple foamy fingers of white head, that settles down to a thick sheet with lacing. Itís the smell of this beer that gets it all going. Itís that lovely Belgian yeast that Ommegang seems to have as itís hallmark. Itís lemon and bread and cereal. Mmmmm. The taste isnít overwhelming, yet full of flavour. Yeasty, citrus, coriander with a mild spicy/acidic bit in there. Really, really well-crafted beer.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear deep gold color, foamy head that stops when it drops to 1" and stays there; sheets of lace that slowly drop back into the drink. Taste is wheaty malt with light effervescence that gives it a delicate air. It grows smoothly through the palate, finishing with a bit of spice and a bitter edge that is mostly carbonation. Very enjoyable, a fine example of the style.
