3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled @mwsf’s place. Not a huge fan of this brewer so far. Yeasty choc/caramel, pretty sweet and a little bit syruppy to be honest, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clouded hay colored. Nice fluffy white head. Nose is yeast, spice, and fruit. I was surprised at the light tartness, not sure if I completely enjoyed it. I have to try this one again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured pale opaque orange, a kind of golden wheat color. Aroma was yeast and lemon. Taste was also yeasty and lemon with a sour "bite" to it. Almost a tart or "puckery" taste, not so much to my liking.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice pale, bright yellow color with a bright white, persistent head. Only moderately spicy with some degree of sourness. Refreshing, deceivingly light with an alcohol kick.

Pale golden yellow colour, slightly cloudy with a thick lively frothy white head. Aroma is fruity (cherry and blackberry) and spicy (cloves). Mostly sweet fruity cherry flavours with lightly acidic undertone. Dryish and refreshing mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A vinous aroma; fruity but also kind of sour, like cherries. Golden color with a fluffy, white, lasting head. Malts & spices & other flavors that I could not put my finger on. Lots of carbonation. Not excellent, but I got a great deal on the bottle, so I’m satisfied.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very balanced Belgian ale with moderate sweetness, some maltiness, spices, hops bitterness and a slightly sour flavor; Palate is expansively carbonated, medium bodied and somewhat sticky, but not cloyingly so; The aroma is both sweet and sour, with some spiciness going on; Pale yellow in color and somewhat cloudy; Small sediment is suspended in the beer; Good sized head on the pour with decent retention and some lacing

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours to a hazy yellow/gold with a large white frothy head that is mostly lasting. Nice lacing around the glass. Aroma: yeast, bananas, citrus crisp, wood?, clove. Flavor: slight yeast that is not overpowering, alcohol taste needs to be better hidden, spicey, pepper. Lingering aftertaste that is like a bland, mild version of the beer itself. I expected this to be better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale orange with some yeast and a white ring with some lacing. Aroma is mild with spices and citrus and vanilla. Flavor has a bit of an alcohol bite to it that overpowers some of the other flavors; I detect some citrus flavor and spices and maybe a little yeast. Feels rather average in the mouth. Overall, I expected better. This beer is hurt by the ridiculous alcohol taste for such a low-alcohol beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had the pleasure to sample ommegang at the brewery. They do not carbonate the beer, bottle aged. Do not drink this beer cold, it is best at the temperature of a basement or cellar. Treat it like a wine when storing as it will continue to age if not refrigerated.Nice golden color, pleasant aroma. This beer has some kick.
