3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy light yellow body with a very active white head. The aroma is as expected. Lemons, bananas, and corriander. The taste has some funky cardboard and a little note of oranges and corriander. The taste is not very much enhanced with citrus. Usually I am a big fan of Ommegang, but this misses. It needs more citrus and a little more body.

Bottle. Hazy, pale straw colored beer with a big white head. Wheat and orange aroma with some yeast. Wheat flavor with very little yeast or spice. Very dry. Could use something to add some depth to it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Soapy head that stays foamed up around the edges with a nebulous pool in the middle of the cloudy yellow body. The aroma is subtle with orange peels and coriander. The carbonation nips the tongue as it imparts a refreshing yeasty orangeness. The taste develops on the palate become bold towards the spicy finish. My first from Ommegang, but I think that there will be more to follow.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out cloudy yellow with a big rich, white, foamy head. Smells of oranges and bananas. Tastes tarte, but too much on the orangey side of the spectrum. Not a bad summer session beer.

Definitively drinkable beer -- however, it tended to be a bit thin at the end, and I think it would benefit from more acorns.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep banana color with some haze and a pure white head. Aroma includes peppery phenols, lemon, honey, and grass. Comes across like a saison. Wheaty and dry impression that extends to the palate. Different, but enjoyable.

Poured a light and hazy gold color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of lemons, spices, and yeast. Tastes of stronger lemons, with oranges and spices. Thinner body (as is expected from this style).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clove, lemon, peach aroma. Light tan yellow color with small quickly disappating head. Tart strong clove flavor (strongest Iíve ever tasted in a wheat beer - really comes out in the aftertaste). Light hints of lemon. Iím not a huge fan of the clove flavor but if you like clove flavor, this would be a good choice.
