3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from Winooski.
Appearance : Clear blond with a small head.
Aroma : Hops and malt, light honey, rather herbal.
Taste : Malt with light bitterness. Some honey. Some alcohol too. Interesting yeasty notes on finish.
Overall : Nothing really exciting. Bitterness feels a bit odd and isn’t really enjoyable when mixed with the alcoholic notes. Nice yeast but not my thing overall.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong best describes this beer. Strong flavor, big mouthfeel and overpoweringly Belgian. There is nothing meek or subtle about this one. Worth every penny.

Absolutely perfect. I should probably give this a five, but I hope that someday I will try something just a tad better. Seriously, everything that Ommegang makes brings a happy tear to my eye. Forget about aroma and taste. Ommegang has soul.
