Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a modest white head and a aweet fruity aroma. There is a subdued light malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. Not quite the quality of Duvel, though still pretty tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy yellow amber with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that reduced to a thin film and medium collar, with very good sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple, pears and a touch of coriander.
The taste was mildly sweet and very fruity from the get go and pretty much lasted throughout, progressing slightly with a bold yeast presence along with a spicy citrus taste towards the finish. The flavor hung around for a good long while following the swallow, with a nice citrus yeast taste that was complemented by a mellow alcohol warming sensation.
Mouthfeel was just past light in body with a mildly dry yet creamy texture and a carbonation that just went beyond mild in intensity.
Overall I have to say this brewer never seems to disappoint, and this is no exception. This beer is a fantastic representation of a Belgian Golden Ale with a great taste and superb drinkability...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber yellow pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel and spice. Taste of caramel, malts, yeast, peppery spice giving it a dry finish and a slight hop bitterness too. Low carbonation, a little cloying and just doesnt come all together very good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy pale golden color. The head dissipates rather quickly unlike a Duvel. Aroma is pretty flat. Taste is of slight citrus and yeast. Very little hop notes. Mouthfeel is not as carbonated as a Duvel. Decent beer. Would Rather have either a Duvel or something different from Ommegang.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co, showing a hazed, golden hue, silky, white foam to the head, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The aroma was Belgian yeast, esters & citrus as apple & lemon, light spice, a little tartness, and light sweetness. The flavor added a moderate, earthy bitterness & astringency, light to medium body, a bit of wateriness to the texture, but a decent effervescence that carried bitterness & dryness through the flavor, and to a crisp finale. Totally hidden alcohol presence. Not an altogether potent Belgian Golden Strong Ale, but tasty nonetheless.

Almost a perfect beer (honestly can't say what could make it better). One of the best aromas I have ever had on a beer.

A combo beer of Belgian style and farmhouse funkiness. Some herbs with rosemary and basil. The beer is not very carbonated and has a strong sweet finish

The aroma is malty yeasty and cheesy. The appearance is cloudy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical. Overall decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a cloudy light amber colour. Clean, grainy malt flavor balanced by a stronger than expected hops bitterness. Strong black pepper phenol and Belgian yeast aftertastes. Light body, moderate carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Some alcohol warmth. I expected to love this beer, but it was only good not great.
