Floral and citrus hop aromas, subtle sugar. Pale orange, slightly hazy, wgite head lasting. Dry, savory, some notes of butterscotch, some soft cheese funk. Light-medium bodied, smooth, well hidden high alcohol.

Pours hazy straw with a good amount of sediment. Nose is ommegang yeast, banana and fruity esters, a bit bready. Taste is interesting, with pineapple juice, house yeast, lot of fruity esters, rather sweet, barnyard funk. Does not taste nearly the almost 10% it is.

I got this as a sampler pack and couldn’t wait to drink it. It did not disappoint me. Not the absolute best but deserves the recognition.

Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn tap: Pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, spice, and apparently chocolate, though I could barely notice it. Apparently there was some licorice too, but it evaded my taste buds. Taste is nice and bitter, a tad funky, slightly sweet. Easy drinking. Light even though it has high abv. A subtle and nuanced beer.

at Union League. Clear golden with visible carbonation white head. Malty nose and yeasty. Spicy but full malt profile. Much fuller body than I expected and sweeter.

Hazy golden pour w/ a fluffy white head that leaves lacing. Enticing Belgian yeast & spice in the aroma. The taste is rather clean & crisp & exceptionally smooth at nearly 10%. It has just enough bite in the finish to make this fairly complex & tasty! Good stuff!

On tap at Bigalora. Nice complex Belgian aroma and taste, but a bit of a weak finish.

On tap @ Blind Tiger House. A really deep dark brown one with a small quickly sidesticking brown top. The nose has tones of both chocolate and licorice but it’s definitely not what it would call extreme. Not bad at all though, and after a while in the glass it’s revealing soft tones of yeast, almonds and toffee-fee. It has a average carbonation level and a oily mouthfeel. Immideately I get a good alcohol burn in this one. Softy licorice the sweet kind, some more yeast, a little bit of herbs and a a trace of wood. Just grows better and better! 18.06.2013

One of the best BSAs that i have had in some time. Great collaboration leaves a beer that has great noble hop taste with the Ommegang yeast.
