Interesting hop character. Spicy, plenty of pepper and belgian yeast, but the bitterness hits you quick and lingers.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A really fantastic, bold beer. Hums with tropical fruity qualities in the nose, and a spicy yeast character. Aggressively hoppy, modestly bitter, in a similar vein to a Rayon Vert or Orval but since it’s not brett-fermented (or at least not designed to be as aggressively bretty as those beers) it’s its own thing. Really delicious.

A great example of super well managed hops. Fresh, touches of sweetness early before getting quite tight and firm on the finish. Very herbal and clean with wonderful cut.

Foamy head. Dark orange color. Thin front with a nice body of citrus and yeast. Sharp peppery end. Nice overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice deep orange color with a small frothy head. Sweet yeast nose... Hoppy crisp taste but thin bodied. Building up a bit with an orange peel aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a snifter. The aromas are sweet and floral with citrus notes of tangerine and grapefruit along with a touch of banana and a bit of dry clove-like spice. The beer is a hazy gold-yellow with a soapy white head. A medium ring is retained with a fluffy island and decent lacing along the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and medium-light, mellow bitter. There’s a fuzzy, soft carbonation to this medium-bodied, thin textured beer. Citrus and bread fill the flavor profile with a light, zesty and grassy finish. It’s clean with a bready aftertaste.

Bottle from ABC. Pours a hazy/murky gold with a medium head that slowly dissipates, though not entirely. Very noticeable particles. Not much lacing to speak of. Aroma is surprisingly fruity; mostly lemon, hints of yeast. Taste is rather sweet, somewhat dry on the finish. Light bodied and overall refreshing. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holy lemon. Tons of lemon dominate the aroma. It’s so fresh smelling. The color is hazy and gorgeous. The taste is just so good. So much citrus, sweet belgian yeast, and hops. So much flavor. I have been very skeptical about Ommegang beers but this one is so solid I will definitely be trying more.

Really enjoyed this one. I have had other so-called "Belgian Pale Ales" that either overstate the hops or end up being way too yeasty. This was a good mix of both, with plenty of fruity yeasty flavors up front and a good crisp hop finish. Tasty!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden pour. Nose of citrus rind and mild pine with candy and Belgian yeast. Flavor has an initial solid bitter citrus and rind followed by gentle Belgian yeast esters and golden malt. Lingering bitter citrus. Lightly dry with good carb.
