3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The guy at the beer store I frequent was kind enough to give me the bottle he’d planned to take home after he told me that he was sold out. So a huge thanks to the proprietor of Vine & Brew in Okemos, MI.
The appearance of the beer is opaque golden amber with a very generous white head and significant lacing. The aroma is noble hops and fruit. The taste is similar, plus there is a slight bread taste to it. There is also a pleasant spiciness to it and possibly a little banana. Smooth, slightly crisp feel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer and another strong offering from Ommegang.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE: OCCASION: binging on Game of Thrones the last few nights, it’s time for Naked and Afraid XL--and this beer... GLASSWARE: Chimay 150th chalice... thick, hazy orange amber body... a central eruption of bubbles says something is alive and at work here... the head is a thing of beauty--white-as-Ghost’s fur, thick as Tormund’s beard, and clinging as the Prince of the Eyre... citric orange and pineapple play with cracker malts... apple and pear suggest a crisp spiciness and a natural sweetness... the palate is the epitome of drinkability, with a frothy head greeting each sip and a lingering sweetness at each finish... a striking balance between dryness and liveliness... as to the flavor, besides the aforementioned aromas, slight nuttiness and vanilla, with a winelike sweetness--such a complex contrast, and yet, so drinkable... as biased as I am--towards the brewery and the novels/shows--there’s no empirical data denying this beer’s quality, and although it is a one-off, I will not deny seeking this our again if I have the chance...

Associated, Brooklyn bottle: pours slighty hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, with fruity notes. Taste is lightly hopped, kind of sweet, and rather yeasty. Easy to drink Belgian style ale with good character.

Blonde bodied with a luscious creamy off-white head. Toasty, slightly burn grain and spicy peppery bouquet. Bready and yeasty body with a prominent white-peppercorn flavor. Rather thin and uncomplex. Ok.

Aroma of tropical fruit, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of fruity yeast, malt and herbal hops. The finish is herbal and citrusy with a yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

Beer pours a hazed dark gold with orange hues and a huge white long lasting head. Aroma is yeast, spices, grains and citrus. Mouthfeel is weak to meadium bodied with average carbonation. Was hoping for something less thin. The flavour is yeast, citrus, and the spices really come through as an herbal addition to the grains.
