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.

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.

Hints of banana, light aromatics of grapefruit and hint of lime. Interesting beer outside of my usual comfort zone and I’d definitely get it again!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. I should be forward in saying that Belgians aren't my thing. This was a gift, along with the next two beers I'll rate. Pours a nice orange-ish gold with a monster head. The head recedes slowly work minimal lacing on the glass. The aroma isn't too bad. There is a heavy thick fruitiness and perhaps some cereal? The taste is quite different. It starts a tad more sour than I had expected but it isn't bad. The fruitiness is there and there are hints of the typical Belgian style in the flavor, but it's not overbearing, and it finishes decently smooth. For not liking Belgians... Not bad
