Poured a nice golden/blonde color with a fluffy white head. Great balance of hops with malts and yeast. Taste included citrus, spices, and honey. Nice body throughout with a smooth, yet distict finish. Beerdedone (3452) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006

Probably more third favorite Saison after Les Bon Voeux and Dupont. I’ve had this from a corked bottle and on tap many times. Hazy golden color with fantastic foamy head. Aroma is a little more subdued that other saisons. Nice grassy and fruity taste. calinative68 (4) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 20, 2006 does not count
Really great beer! First time I had this, I was blown away. I kick myself in the ass as I was in Cooperstown, NY in August, 05, and hadn’t heard of Ommegang! ARRGGHH!!

I’m as blown away by this beer as most seem to be. It tasted like a slightly spicer hefeweizen, which is not a bad thing. I tasted citrus, bananna, and yeast. AskForJenny (1086) - Ontario, New York, USA - APR 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2008 You can certainly see the Moorgat pedigree here. The meringue like head sits atop a slightly cloudy brass colored beer. The flavor is nice and subtle, so pervasive you don’t even notice it taking over. Nice Belgian lace on the glass. Really good. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2006
From a 750ml. caged cork brown bottle with pouring and serving instructions on the back label, served at cellar temperature. Made a very good appearance, poured a hazy pale golden with a fluffy, foamy white head that slowly settled into a foamy thin lacing, good carbonation. Had a honey and spicy, slightly herbal nose with a dry yeastiness and pale dry maltiness at the edges. A crisp, slick and smooth medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Tart fruity and fresh cut grassy taste, a nutty yeastiness, a mild clove and herbal spiciness towards the middle, a dry biscuitiness, a warming alcohol presence on the tongue and a dry tropical fruity and crisp yeasty, malty finish.
A very good American Saison Ale from Ommegang, a must try for anyone who likes beers from Belgium.

this is a solid beer. pours a clear yellow with a lasting white head. aroma of bannana and dates. taste is quite light with bannana, pear, fig, and some other light fruity type stuff. quite bubbley. very clean, has little aftertaste. very easy to drink. this would be a great beer for people just getting into craft type beers, its complex, yet not to overpowering. not one aspect is really that great, but they all come togeather to form an enjoyable , easy to drink treat. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2006
golden yellow appearance with large white, frothy head...aroma is of light citrus fruits, some banana, and yeast...flavor is the same, and has some earthy, herbal, and spice characteristics...very nice
