COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Nested between gentle mountains, it reflects any object held up to it, just as it reflects our joy at the arrival of each spring. To help celebrate, pour new spring saison offers a perfect balance of maltiness and hops, with a touch of yeasty fruitiness and a whiff of pepper.

b33r (861) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft- Bright cloudy orange color with no head or lacing. Aroma has nice yeastiness, light citrus and banana. Flavor is good with slight earthy yeasts, citrus, moderate hop bitterness, and dry hay malt finish. Good overall.

kramer (6034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a one inch thin fizzy white head that had decent retention. The nose is light, delicate, spicy, peppery, some slight yeastiness, floral, and at its base, lightly malty. The flavor is pretty sharp and bite-y with the peppery spiciness really grabbing you up front. Finishes with some hoppy bitterness and a slight carbonic bite from the active fizzy carbonation. Pretty good saison if youre into the more American interpretation of the style. I generally prefer the softer, more yeasty, and funkier versions.

jcr (2584) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy golden body with a huge, frothy, off-white head. Musty aroma with orange, spice, toasted grain. Notes of banana and lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. The finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. A bit sweet, overall and a bit heavy for a spring saison. But it avoids being overly spiced. And its enjoyable to drink.

Reviewed March 22, 2014. A: Welp...its one of those beers. It pours a relatively clear golden color, yeah, I figured it would. But this also pours a bajillion-finger head, bone white in shade. Luckily, the bubbly head doesnt have fantastic retention. Some splotches of lacing are left behind. Since the head doesnt retain annoyingly, Ill still give it a very good score. S: The nose offers a lot of wheat, but I also seem to pick up a weird herbal tone I get in some wheat beers - like deviled ham, almost. But there are nice notes here, like black pepper, coriander, very subtle fruit, and clove. Still, this is disappointing: Im sure it will still taste good, but I flat-out dont like this beers aroma. T: Thankfully, the taste does work well. Some mild fruitiness opens it up, quickly giving way to a (welcome) yeasty bite in the middle. The finish is nice and lemony, and even mildly herbaceous. My biggest problem is that it doesnt taste particularly rustic: it honestly reminds me more of a witbier (a good witbier, to be fair, but still...) M: This one is pretty light on the palate. While its not saison dry, its dry enough to go down easily. Carbonation is soft yet effective. O: Personally, I dont think this is that saison-y (compared to, say, Hennepin, which is and then some). To me, this tastes more like a witbier. Having said that, its a good one, nose aside. A smidge too expensive (compared to its quality) for me to purchase again, but worth a try regardless.

floydslip (355) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Over-carbonated cloudy copper beer with a bright crackling white head that fills the entire glass. I could not pour the entirety of the beer into my glass because half of it was filled with foam. Nose of lemon, white wine vinegar, and white pepper. Flavor is bright and fresh with layers of lemongrass, pepper, and spice finished with a light pungent bitterness. Crisply effervescent, this is a fine saison.

jsporrer (807) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Pours a pale to medium clear amber with a thin white ring. Light aroma of Belgian spices. Typical flavors of most other Ommegang products and a somewhat dry finish. Not as good as I was hoping for. OK but not great.

ryecatcher (1364) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden-yellow with some floaties. Massive pillar of white foam with insane retention. Nose is mild funk, white pepper, yeasty spice, lemon custard, grass. Mouth is medium bodied, slightly creamy, nice balance of tartness with the mild sweetness, lemon zest, daffodils, pepper, toasted brioche. Very crushable. Nicely done.
