An inviting aroma (a little grapefruit?) pours forth from a fluffy white head and pale orange body.Terrific balance on the taste, with neither the hops nor malts overwhelming the other. Mildly tart and dry finish has nice fruitiness. Poured from a 12-oz bottle.

Pours a hazy dusty orange with a sticky white head. Almost laces.
Fruity, spicy aroma.
the flavor is lightly sweet with good hop bitterness to balance. A bit of dryness in the finish.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark gold with white head. Taste flat, spice, bitter. I wasn't impressed. I would pass on this in the future.

Enjoyable. Super clean, with nothing over the top. Hops are noticed at the end, making the Belgian Pale Ale accurate. Would drink again.

A good if not memorable beer. Pours a nice thick orange with a foamy white head. Smells like orange and ginger. More ginger in the taste along with the Classic Belgian flavor, and weirdly, some booze. Slightly hoppy finish. Had in the bottle.

I think I have overlooked Brewery Ommegang. An article about its corporate ownership made me give it a try. Pours dark pale with a large white dissipating head. Scent is fruity bubblegum. Taste starts slightly sweet with biting finish. Refreshingly bubbly and light. Really liked it. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

Light cloudy orange color with huge frothy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy and yeasty with light floral notes. Flavor has strong citrus, bubblegum, coriander, and spicy belgian yeasts. Crisp and refreshing, sweet, with little bitterness. Very good overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance of the beer has a nice dark golden cloudy tone to it. The smell of the beer starts with that fruity aroma from a belgian but has the lingering effect of the hops mildly mixed in. The taste starts off with a quick fruity belgian taste with some spice blended in but moves into the bite of the hop. The aftertaste is definitely crisp, clean, and mildly bitter from the hops. This beer is a great combination and is appealing to belgian fans and hop heads. It is a great blend of the two styles and is recommended. I had bought a bomber of this when it was released and finally cracked it open on memorial day with my best friend and was good, but is definitely better when it is fresh.
