jb (3061) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 Had the big bottle with the cork, not much of a pop. Hazy as its bottle-conditioned. Wasnt sure what the big deal was. Pale color, light wheat taste. Nice effervescence and light fruit in the finish, but overall disappointing. 4/27/13 what was I thinking in2004? This is pretty tasty. Nice yeasty effects.

Cobra (1100) - - AUG 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 750 ml. big ole brown Belgian-style bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date seen anywhere. Very loud pop when opened. Poured out a hazy, cloudy, light golden yellow color, with a massive white, meringue like head at first. It faded back to a yeasty, frothy island floating on the beer itself. Served in my Chimay chalice for proper evaluation. Aromas are of yeasty bread, wheat malts, slight roastiness also. Some citrus evident in the nose, more of a pomelo than a real grapefruit. Fruity aromas abound, with cherries, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon aromas intertwining. Tastes are of farm fresh fruits, melons and citrus mostly. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Very effervescent, almost champagne like in the nature of its carbonation. Slightly tart, crisp, and bitter in the finish. Well balanced. Not one thing stands out above the others here. Id like to be able to age a bottle of this for 5 years and see what it turns into. Ill wager it would be fantastic. A top notch effort from the professional brewers at Ommegang. Good show!

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2004
This beer had very nice lacing and was a cloudy brassy golden pour with a lasting creamy head. Very attractive beer. This had a lot of yeast in the aroma with a slight twinge of alcohol and bitter fruit. Almost a cake batter sweetness to it as well. The flavor is crips with an astringent/bitter citrus finish of hops to it. Palate was indeed effervescent with a decent body to it. Overall a very tastey summertime brew. I am a fan.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - AUG 4, 2004
Cloudy yellow coloring. Taste is highly carbonated with some prominate spices, maybe clove. Refreshing and easy to drink, but complicated enough to really enjoy. Reminded me of a wheat beer with a little more flavor.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2004
My first saison, and Im very impressed. Great beer. Took about 10 minutes to fully pour this beer. A light, hazy orange/golden appearance with a huge cream colored head. Good lacing. Aroma was very yeasty, with slight alcohol and fruits. Flavor kinda bursted out. Tasted of oranges, yeast, hops. Good mouthfeel.

Nice golden color. Nice bubbles. Nice white fluffy head. Hides its alcohol almost completely, and that says a lot, seeing as how it is 7.5%. A little fruity. Overall very nice. Great artwork on the label also.
