3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Approx 12 oz draft pour at The Beer Bistro in Chicago, Illinois. Pour is a ruby golden, mostly clear with a one inch white head. Aroma of Belgian perfume spice clove yeastiness, along with some citrus hops. Taste is a nice blend of apricot citrus hops and the soft perfume clove Belgian yeast. Malt is around, but certainly in the background. Nice balance, clean taste. Palate is thin to medium, soft natural carbonation and a long yeasty aftertaste. Nice.

Pours a perfect dense, cheddar orange with a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma is orange hops, floral lemon, sour grass, a touch of sweet cedar wood, and a hint of pepper. Flavor is upfront hops with a finish of grapefruit and orange juice, light pine sap, and a hint of red wood. Slippery on the tongue. Great beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
4/29/2010: Ommegang BPA (Belgian-style Pale Ale, Dry Hopped)... Aroma: Dull yeast and weak citrus peel (nothing distinct). Appearance: Big pop on opening; bright, sunny gold color with a slight haze; ample white white that leaves puffy lacing on the glass. Flavor: Soft grains, a bit doughy; Noble-like, floral, earthy, and slightly medicinal hops with a soft bitterness; a bit muddy overall. Palate: Medium-light; nice and airy; smooth (nearly cask-like mouthfeel) and easy to drink. Overall: Terribly unexciting and a somewhat disappointing offering from Ommegang; reminds me of a traditional pub bitter, but lacks definition.
750 ml corked and caged bottle (Alc./Vol. 6.2%) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #107 for this beer.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with a large frothy white head that lasts awhile leaving good sticky lacing. The aroma is a fruity malt with yeast and coriander. Thin mouthfeel with a spicy hop with pepper and lemon zest. Easy to drink, a good Belgian ale from Ommegang.

Bottle courtesy of bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with an attractive off-white head and a toffee and yeast aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with some citrus and a lot of yeast presence. The finish is pleasantly bitter. A nice brew.
