COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Spices: Coriander, Cardamon, Mace, Grains of Paradise, Sweet Orange Peel. Adoration is a traditional winter ale, brewed in the Belgian manner, but with the twist of unusual spicing. Sip it on a winter eve sitting before a fire. You’ll understand why we couldn’t name it anything else.

Sweet, spiciness, and bananas on the aroma. Warming and pleasant with a lot of fruitiness as it goes down. If you want to understand what a Belgian holiday ale is, this is the one to get. One of my desert island beers.

Tap at heyday in small goblet. Dark red with smooth white head. Alcohol and dark fruit in nose. Heavy dark fruit and alcohol sweetness. Nice smooth finish with a bit of spice. Excellent.

Pours amber to brown with fine, lacy head. Not overpowering in odor but pleasant, with stone fruit and malt predominating. Velvety moth feel. Sweet and rich taste. This is like a mild Quad. Very pleasant beer. Hides the hefty alcohol content well.

Got one for Christmas 2011. With 10% Alcohol volume I was expecting a pretty strong winter style ale but instead found a strong but very easy drinking beer with very pleasant spices. Would not want one in July but found it great on a cold snowy night.

This one is loaded with wintery goodness, makes a great Christmas present! All the spices and sweet maltiness are perfect together, it blows away every other "winter ale" I’ve had. Also quite powerful.

Ommegang Adoration has a thin-to-medium cream-colored head, very little lacing, a murky, rust-orange appearance, and lots of tan chunks floating about. The aroma is of assorted spices, spiced bread or cake, dark fruits, such as raisin, and low bitterness. Sweetness and alcohol abound. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Ommegang Adoration finishes semi-wet and somewhat boozy. RJT

12 oz bottle purchased at Haskells for March Madness. Consumed with commomshawn and rosskyle. Very appealing amber/plum color with a slight off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, sweetness, almost berries, and vanilla. Taste is in the realm of a Belgian quad with the malty sugars taking center stage with a strong supporting cast of dark fruits and alcohol. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Plenty of spices. Really impressive beer that seems like a perfect representation of the style. Great beer! This is a special moment for me in my rating career...#500. I’d like to thank all the people who helped get me here and am humbled by the opportunity to continue onward on the rating journey.

What a delicious brew. Had it last night at Belgian Cafe. Sweet aroma of orange and corriander. Sweeter taste than any strong ale I have had before. Its body was a dark amber color, medium head. Really a great drink.

Christmas-spiced aroma (similar to harpoon winter warmer). Apple cider color. A nice spiced Belgian dark ale...excellent winter beer! Notes: Beer Advocate Belgian Beer Fest (Boston) ’09
