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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Starts with an earthy aroma, pours a clear light yellow with a towering white head. The flavor is light, with earthy notes, more bitterness then I expected, and a touch of light fruit. Very light on the palate, with a lingering earthy bitterness. This is an interesting one, not sure I’ll pick it up regularly, but it’s a decent change of pace.

Bottle split with Devin at Erawan. Pours cloudy gold with a little white head and lacing. Nose of sweet malts, bread and honey. Does not taste like 8.5% not as boozy as Duvel. Sweet malt and honey, mild citrus, some spice and funk from the yeast.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally something from Ommegang that isnt overrated. Pours clear orange. Medium to high carbonation. Floral hops, light brett and spice in aroma. Taste has a nice tang and leaves with a touch sour and bitter. Nice, balanced beer. Tap at Slows.
