duvel tulip glass: big light tan head, a bit rocky, diminishes into a thick ring around the glass. bubbly brown amber body. bubbly mouthfeel. apple, dry, spicy, bready, and just a little bit of pleasant sourness. i had a hopdevil before this and this reminds me of hopdevil. anyway, i like it.

Slightly hazed bright honey-amber color. Big frothy off-white head. The nose is big and yeasty with bright hints of raisin. Sweet malt is also detectable rounded off with a rather subdued citrus spiciness and various other dark fruits. The body is lightly spritzy with a hint of citrus and underlying yeast - very light. Some fruit in the middle and a very light hint of alcohol. Spiced lightly. Somewhat of a light belgian.

cloudy amber, lots of carbonation on a substantial white head. aroma is candy, spice, sausage, slightly floral. flavor is very malty, nice and sweet. some spiciness offsets the malt, with a very dry finish. almost completely disappears in the aftertaste. another success from ommegang.

Cloudy amber brew with very little carbonation.I like a cloudy beer as I yhink it will have more body.Maybe not always true but still..Okay so the brewer is right that it does have a nice floral fruity aroma,nice maltiness also.Has a pleasant finish in that the fruit flavors hold on.Nice of Bier_Bauch to send this my way.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Goldwn yellow with a good size white head. Aroma is interestingly hoppy with a nice base of... Belgianness (slighlty sweet yeasty alcohol?) Palate has a pleasant effervessence to it. Nice hoppy bitterness in the flavour with a delicate touch of spice. Pleasant dry tartness in the finish. Thanks for sharing Ken.

Pours a foamy lasting tan head on a hazy amber orange body. Lots of fruit specially oranges in the aroma. Also yeast and spices. Flavor is very special with lots of spices, malt and fruit and a dry and harsh end. Quite sharp and edgy and rather difficult to appreciate.

From the 750 ml bottle - It poured a tall beige head, with a rich "Belgian Ale" aroma, and had a lovely rich taste,
although a tad light for the style. I do recommend this brew!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Truthfully wasn’t very impressed by this. Maybe I expected more out of it. Decent yeasty, floral aomra. Dark red, light brown appearance, with a huge disappearing beige head. Basic Belgian flavor. Sweet yeasty, spicy flavor. Not the best Ommegang.

Clear orange appearance, excellent bright and crisp fruit aroma, It has a nice bite right when you take the first sip, but there’s not nearly the complexity to this that there is in the Hennepin, sweet flavor with a hint of alcohol, leaves a somewhat buttery taste on the palate, invite a robot to your next party, they can just rage all night and make beeping noises.
