Short Sleeve Saison, a Belgian-style Saison brewed by Brewery Ommegang, and for the purposes of this review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a bottle.
Pours a cloudy straw capped by an inch-thick cap of white foam that recedes slowly and leaves a soapy ring. A steady stream of bubbles rises in the glass.
Aroma is predominantly yeasty; a little earthy funk that’s brightened with lemon and coriander.
A light palate of cracker wheat and honey is spiced with coriander and pepper. Taste is balanced with mild, grassy hops and finishes dryly with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Bubbly mouthfeel has a light body with above average carbonation.
The Short Sleeve Saison is a straightforward representation of the style whose subdued palate tastes great. So easy to tilt back. Perfect for warm, sunny days.
