4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle purchased at Raja Liquors in Livermore, CA. The pour: cloudy, light caramel color, with nice head retnetion and brussels lace. The bouquet: heavy on the bretta and hoppiness- (it reminded me of Orval!) orangy, citrusy. The palate: heavy on the hoppiness- quite sharp. Very herbal, very earthy. (Again, a lot like Orval!) The finish: The aftertaste for me was somewhat short, but very refreshing... A masterpiece! May the brewers at Ommegang be blessed by GOD.

Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy orange hue with creamy white head. Aroma is straw, honey, peppercorn, earthy, slight funk. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy funky finish. Overall this beer was decent.

Bottle shared by mcbackus. Nose is slightly mail polish with some oxidation. Taste is a flat watery mess. Ugh. Just not good. No saison character left, no Brett character. All mess.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The body is cloudy with a pale yellow orange color and it has some active carbonation that rushes up to the head. Its head is white, fluffy and builds up thick and tall. It has excellent retention and coats the whole inside of the glass with lace. The aroma is lovely combination of fruity and funky yeast with notes of pear and dried apricot, mellow floral hops, light wheat and doughy malt. The flavor hits the tongue with tart funky yeast, sour grain and wheat. Hops come in and add an almost minty herbal flavor and mild bitterness. The finish is dry and the yeast flavor lingers, begging me to sip again. On the palate it has a light to medium body and a smooth texture with active yet smooth carbonation. Its palate makes it easy to sip and its complex aroma and interesting flavor enticed me to drink on. Very well done!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3/4 head, 1/4 liquor. Recedes in a rocky fashion. Leaves large bubbled lace. The color is straw with a very light haze.
Yeasty and mildly hoppy. Strong farmhouse aromas. Fresh and citrusy.
Peppery with strong lemon zest flavor. Lots of yeast bite to the drink, which lasts through the swallow and aftertaste. Not much hop; this is mostly dry malt. Thin body and highly carbonated.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 1-poured hazy orange (cant see through it) with a thin white head that settled to a thin layer. Had a few yeast chunks in it. Aroma of yeast, funk, basement. Sweet flavor up front that finishes a pink peppercorn finsih. Slight bitterness really evens it out.
