3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This cloudy, honey-gold beer has a bright, white head. The nose is yeasty with loads of heavy, sweet malt and light undertones of citrus hops. A slight touch of mustiness as it warms. The palate is medium-bodied with warm bread, soft fruits and light spice. The finish is once again yeasty, but semi-sweet with velvety malt and old lemons.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This country ale comes as a favorable surprise. Its color is a clear golden-orange (very pretty), with a pale, fluffy head. Its aroma is fruity and slightly sour, but its flavor is a bit darker than that would suggest; fruity, but also rather nutty, with a warm finish almost like that of a good brown ale. I like this ale.

Cloudy yellow with white head. Fruity (mostly citrus), spicy and slightly sweet, but with yeast sourness very present as well.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Everything about this brew reminds me of the origonal ommegang, with the exception of being lighter and maybe a little bit "fruitier" It also seemed to have less of an alcohol taste than many other Belgian ales. Flavor is not very complex.

OA: way to go .. a good high school copy of a monet. you passed sasion brewing 101.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque cloudy yellow, good head retention. Wonderful yeast, malt, citrus, banana, and bubblegum aroma. Relatively creamy and smooth. Quite complex in taste. Initial taste is creamy vanilla, banana, and bubblegum, but finish is slightly sour, bitter, and hoppy. Very well done.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of summer, Candy, Stone Fruit and some spice. Pours a nice mellow yellow with a good white head. Light medium Body with ample Carbonation that makes it very refreshing. Very smooth, crisp and Clean Finish. This almost like a braeburn Apple to me, Tart, Sweet, Sour and very crisp..I can drink this beer a lot.. Well Done

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Lockview. Pours a straw yellow. Color with a massive white head that disappears over sometime. Aroma of oranges, lemon and some hop spiciness. Nice balance between the beer and the alcohol. Evident but not overwhelming. Tastes citrusy with some spiciness on the back end. A bit of pepper on the back end as well. Tart and delicious. A prime example of the style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured cold from a tap, aroma not very strong. Taste was crisp, medium sweetness, very short aftertaste, effervescent feeling. Pretty good. A great value for the buck.
