3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to noodleuser. Pours a cloudy golden. Medium white foam with good lacing. Nose is phenolic, heavy diaper plastic, fresh apricot. Still a tad overboard on the toilet cleaner nose. Taste is heavy carbonation up front, mild diaper, yellow apple, dusty yeast, some mint. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle shared by Noodleuser: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some biscuity notes and floral hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and biscuity malty sweetness with some floral hop notes and a drier herbal bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, bottled 1/31/13. Best by 2015. Shared with friends during a game of Catan. Mostly clear golden color. Slightly orange. Lots of fine particles in the body. Big white head upon pouring, fades to a good thin bit that retains. No lace really sticks. Nice light spicy yeasty estery nose, lightly bready, lightly peppery. Light citrus peel. Light zesty sweet taste, lightly spicy. Nice yeasty, full mouthfeel. Good belgian golden.

750ml corked bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and yeast. Taste is a sharp spiciness with a malty sweetness and a citrusy hop bite. Loads of carbonation provide a very lively sensation on the palate. A nice treat and highly recommended.

Pours a beautiful hazy orange color with a thick and creamy head. Aroma is spices, bananas, cloves, and a light note of citrus. Taste is sweet but not too fruity, some citrus. To he one of those beers connected to an advertising campaign, it's really good.

Thought this was going to be a gimmick but ill be damned its actually a good beer! Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a big white head. On the palate the lemon peel is a little heavy for my taste but otherwise it's a nice balanced Saison like golden ale. Yum

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Stag’s Head. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma was sort of absent on this beer, some slight hops, floral notes and citrus, but not much. Taste is slightly citrus, spice and wheat. Finishes fairly clean on the palate. Overall, I thought this was a little bland and dissapointing. I usually really like Ommegang’s offerings but this was on the weaker side. A dissapointment.
