Hazy amber with a thick coarse head. Aroma is sweet butterscotch and fruitiness. Flavor is caramel, molasses, licorice, and orange rind. A nice mellow and complex beer. Very clean finish.

Good easy drinking summer beer. Yeasty and spicy, with a bubblegum phenolic that brought me back to my days in little leauge. Lively carbonation dances on the tounge and a crisp bitter finish cleans the palate for the next beer...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very enticing aroma: banana, malt, and yeast predominantly. Pours hazy orange with a head that is very long-lasting. With these attributes, I expected a complex, rich belgian-style ale. Not really so. A little one-dimensional and simple. It is an easy drinking beer, but that’s not what I expected or look for in this style. Finishes smooth, short. Not as good as the others I’ve tried by Ommegang. Three Philosophers next!

I love all of the Ommegang beers and this one is right there with their other great stuff. Nicely malty and probably more hoppy than their other beers. One of the best beer values in existence as this was only $4 for a 750 ml bottle. Yum!

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured orange/amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of butterschotch, apples, and pears. Taste has some fruitiness but it was overpowered by a salty bitterness, like it had been brewed with ocean water. I’m wondering if I got a bad bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a pretty good beer. Clean with a lighter, drinkable flavor that is spicy and dry. Balanced and mellow but still has enough going on to keep it interesting the whole glass.

Deep golden orange color with a nice creamy white, long lasting head. Nice mild aroma with spice. Very balanced flavor of spice and citrus. Clean, well carbonated palate. Great stuff.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In the 750 ml bottle. Pours an orange color. Giant volcano errupting head that just will not be contained in a glass. Aroma quite lacking. Flavor is mundane with disappointing written all over it in my book. Low in yeast flavor. Medicine-like finish. Is this really true to Belgian style?
