3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cork and cage bottle poured into ommegang tulip, pours a cloudy amber with a big off white head that fades after a few and leaves no lacing. Aroma is mostly spicy belgian yeast and cherries and raisins with a small hint of vanilla and caramel. Taste is mostly raisin at first but lingers on the tongue with cherry and vanilla notes. Not too bad, ommegang seems to always be puttin out good brews.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 On tap at PH at bottle from Nick, pours a very hazy and cloudy orange brown with tiny bubbled white head, good lace. Aromas of oak, maple, tons of malt, light hops, and apple skins. Taste is dry fruits such as apple, caramel, pear, cherries, lemon skins, maple syrup, graham, boozed out oak, very sweet but not cloying at all, nicely balanced. Medium to full bodied for a bier de garde. Really good.

Pours unclear syrupy amber with a decent white head, darker than any I have seen for the style. The aroma has bland, fruity malt notes. Thr flavor is the same, fruity malts on top of farmhouse yeast notes. There is no spice or funk though
