Pour is a cloudy yellow with a nice big white head. Aroma is a nice banana and fruity mix with some clove in there. Flavor is a bit of corriander with a spicy kick at the end. Has a light bitterness as it goes down. A pleasing beer for the senses.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Pours a medium golden body with a fizzy, white head. The aroma is some light fruits and spices with and underlying funk aroma. The flavor didnt reflect the nose, though. Nice lemony citrus and yeast flavors that end dry and abruptly.

Not what I was expecting, but very enjoyable. It could be fuller tasting but I enjoyed what I had. Crisp is a good description, could be more hoppy? Great aroma, love the corked bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 New York State has a lot going for it. It is the capitial of an economic empire and the home of Brewery Ommegang. This is an excellent beer. The color is a nice cloudy medium yellow, with a beautiful long lasting head. The taste is to my tooth, dry, with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

A Radiant Blond. Swirling traces of surface lace with a rim of collected effervescence. This is a great example of a well-rounded ale. Excellent flavor with a requisite body element. Finishes sweet as honey with no bad side effects.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2005
Almost opaque, golden/yellow, very typical of most Saisons Ive had before. Head is light ang somewhat clingy, could use a bit more umph. Smells like moist bread, with a bit of apricot jam sweetness. Yeasty with an interesting alcohol finish which gives it sort of a lactic and creamy feel with just a bit of funk, which reminds me of a Camenbert cheeze. Nice!

Hazy golden with thin white head. spicy (mostly coriander) and fruity aroma that reminds me banana candies. Fruity and spicy flavors that leads towards a dry finish. Overall refreshing beer.
