Has a very thick, dense, white head that doesnt dissipate at all. Its creamy with flavors of caramel malt and spices (clove, nutmeg). Apple and apricots. The Belgian-style yeast gives it an earthy quality. The Harvest Ale description is accurate, but I think the use of so many different grains made it taste a little strange.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Really good. I definitely taste the ommegang house flavor in this one, but I also think they did a good job with the grains too. Sweeter than a normal saison would run, but has a strong barnyard flavor due to all the grains. Deep honey color with ample carbonation and a head/lace that sticks around. Ommegang delivers again.

A good beer. Different and tasty. Aroma was earthy with a slight metallic smell. Pour was a nice hazy burnt orange with a two finger off white head. Beautiful beer. Taste was very big and full for the low ABV. Spicy and malty with ginger, earth and wheat dominating. Very nice strong rye presence as well. A Belgian yeast undertone is present in the finish. All in all a very unique beer. Nice strong carbonation.

phaleslu (9706) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Dutchs. Pours a little bit cloudy orange with a big off-white head that goes down somewhat quickly into a much smaller version and leaves some lace in the process. Aroma of banana, caramel, toast, wheat, oatmeal, apricot, and some lingering spicy rye. Flavor of banana, apricot, toast, candied nuts, wheat, dried grains, and a dry, spicy rye finish. Medium-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a dry, spritzy, spicy mouthfeel. Good but not quite what Id hoped for from their harvest ale.

Ericular (971) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours a hazy golden wheat with some sediment, huge head, and great lacing. Aroma is a quality balance of yeast, banana, and spicy rye. Taste is yeast, rye, biscuit, a hint of yeast sweetness, then a nice bitter counter, all with a wheat backbone throughout. Im not big on yeasty beers, but this is by far the tastiest Ive had. Palate is creamy and highly carbonated... maybe a slight bit too much.

12oz bottle into brandy snifter. Deep, hazy orange with thin bright white head. Carbonation appears high. Aroma earthy, spicy Belgian yeast with subtle citrus and floral hops. A touch of leather, straw and sweetness on the nose. Flavour - yeast notes strong but also mellow. Hops more pronounced in the flavour than aroma, and linger on the finish. Tangerine, pine and pepper. Carbonation high, mouthfeel thin. Pleasant but not exceptional.

12oz bottle purchased from Dawsons market in Rockville, MD. The head is thin. Appearance is orange and hazy. Subtle pepper and apple fragrance. It is slightly sweet and crisp with high carbonation. The flavor reminds me of an apple picked off the tree in autumn.

On tap is light amber slightly cloudy with off white head. Taste is bread malts with floral hints all too subtle. Overall it is thin to my taste could use more body and alcohol.

I generally hate wheat beers, and this has a little too much wheat for my taste. Theres also spicy rye notes and Belgian yeast, which saves it, but I wont be buying this one again.
