2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Floral, spicy hop aroma with citrus orange peel. Color is golden slightly, with a large head with good retention. Citrus, grainy flavor with strong pepper notes on the end. Hop bitterness is high and the balance is more towards the bitterness side. Mouthfeel is medium light with a high level of carbonation that tingles the mouth. Astringency is noticeable on the end. Overall, a disappointing beer from Ommegang. Aroma is pleasant, but the flavor has too much going on between the hop bitterness, the Belgian esters and the strong astringent pepper notes.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a monstrous creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is straw with some earthy yeast and a little spice.
The flavor is straw and doughy malts with stale grassy hops and a touch of fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, the first sips were just stale hops and earthy notes, but as I finished the bottle more sweet fruity notes came out that were nice.

Great beer. This is close to an Orval clone which is always welcome! Aroma was Belgian yeast, dank hops and light tropical fruit. Pour was very Belgian like and beautiful. Hazy light gold with lots of seiment and a 2 finger white head of tiny little bubbles. Taste was nice. The yeast and stale hop flavor played perfectly together. Light mango and bubble gum in the finish. Carbonation started out nice and strong but died down rather quickly. All in all a great beer.
