In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Brewery Ommegang Hennepin

Aroma: “Coriander, black pepper, and orange. Good sweet malt with apple and pear fruit aroma. Subtle ginger. Light spicy hop notes and faint herbs in the background.”

Flavor: “Medium biscuity malt sweetness accented by bright orange citrus. Coriander is obvious but not overwhelming. Low-to-moderate hop bitterness. Finish is sweet and could use more dryness to round it out. Highly carbonated but mellow. Some acidity.”

Overall: “Love how the spices are obvious but don’t overwhelm the other aspects of this saison. Spice levels are just where they’re supposed to be. Nothing over the top. A nicely well-rounded, balanced beer.”
