Citrus and yeast very heavy in the aroma, joined by an oakey/cidery smell. Extremely smooth wheaty malt that quickly goes spicy and tangy. Oak from aroma appears in a bitter, barnyard finish

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Orangey clouded pour with some dark yeast sediment. Medium sized off white head. Raisny sweet yeast nose. The beer itself is fruity and tart. Lightly peppery and has touches of caramel. Quite a nice dry finish.

Bottle. Pretty sweet and yeasty belgian style. Loads of caramel, candy sugar and orange flavours. Bit too sweet and sticky for me.

Had at HBF from bottle. Aroma of fruit, malt, florals, spice. Tastes very malty, with herbal, earthy, spicy notes. As with all Ommegang styles, very complex, well-balanced, with well hidden alcohol.

Nice lighter style belgian ale, yet it is not watered down or bland. Nice light amber color with a good head. Sligth grassy flavors and aromas, and some complexity from the yeast. Some fruitiness in the end as it warms.

750ml bottle: Orange/amber color with a large off-white head. Nice appearance. Nose has citrus, yeast, spice, bread. Tastes much like the description claims - although it also has some citrus and light tartness in addition to the advertised flavors. Thin, crisp, and dry.

Mildly spiced lemon and cookie dough in the aroma. Amber-brown with thin, white, fully-diminishing head. Mild cherries in simple biscuity malt flavour with plenty of alcohol apparent. Decent balancing bitterness. and dry finish. Body a bit on the thin side. Bottle (sampled at Mondial 2004).

Orange-brown in colour. Aroma of citrus, spices and yeast. Flavour was yeasty, cirtus - oranges, light lemons, mild malt - cookie dough. Lightish body, mild carbonation. Finishes dry, long and citrusy. I was expecting more.
