4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy bright yellow with a massive white fluffy head that threatens to top the glass even with the gentlest pour. Great retention and lacing. The aroma is immediately bubblegum and Belgian yeast with lemon and underlying hints of barnyard. The taste is exactly what I wanted with the floral hops, lemon and a bit of sweetness from the malt. The yeast adds to the complexity with some spiciness and a little funk, ending with a subdued bitterness that fades away. Mouthfeel is smooth and refreshing with a somewhat creamy body and medium/high carbonation that helps make the beer finish dry. This could very well be my go to summer beer as indicated on the bottle. Delicious and very drinkable and Belgian Pale Ales are quickly becoming my favorite style.

Pours a cloudy straw-yellow. Good off-white head--small, but plenty of blanket lace. Lots of lasting power.
As always, there’s a ton of Belgian yeast to the smell. Behind that is some pale malt, but it’s subtle.
More bitter than most of Ommegang’s offerings. Again, there’s a harsh yeast bite geometry hop in the background, but it’s not prominent. The aftertaste is better on the hop bitterness, but this still the tale of a strong Belgian yeast flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. A really big foamed one, and the beer itself is really cloudy, golden yellow in color. It smells of blind Belgian yeast, some green apples, a little spicy touch, some alcohol, apple zest and a little bit of silo fart. Smells nice. Tastes like a proper Belgian. Some yeasty tones and a half sharp alcohol sting. It has a just below average carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. The green apple zest sticks in the taste as well, and it’s what I would call as light mouthdrying. Somewhat watery finish. 13.06.2013

Tap - not much head, pale straw color, light bodied, mild floral hop aroma and flavor with mild sweet malt backbone - not bad but expected a little more

Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, flowers, frutiness, and a bit of spice. Taste is sweet, but sufficiently hoppy. Aftertaste of yeast and hops linger on into the aftertaste. This is a really well done Belgian ale. It was great after a long run.

Smells sweet of Belgian yeast with a bit of a nice hop aroma. Some fruity, maybe banana aromas. Full body in the taste and well balanced. Some Belgian sweet, a bit of hops and some banana nut flavors. All well balanced. Really like this one. Very drinkable.

Great appearance, huge bubbly white head, that held for a long time, and has great lacing. The smell was citrusy and earthy but that’s about it. Taste is interesting. Heartburn after 4 big sips. Very lithely hoppy, tons of citrus, and a nice yeasty character. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, and mildly efflorescent.
