3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Attractive beer with nice head and great creamy mouthfeel and crisp flavor. My only real issue is with the aroma, it bears little resemblance to the beer itself, and is rather unpleasant. Very drinkable and paired extremely well with cheese.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is the best from Ommegang. Bitter, but not too harsh. Hard to find, even near the brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iíd say this was the weakest of the three Ommegangís you can get regularly out here. It has less malt presence, less acute spiciness, more room for the hops to show through, than Ommegang or Hennepin. So Iím rating in comparison, really, and this one just seems to be missing something. Still, itís a decent brew, citrusy and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
aroma is full of apples and pears. medium amber color that resembles apple juice. head persists as a fine bead of bubbles, with decent carbonation. hops dominate the profile, providing an acidic and slightly dry finish. rather unbalanced, it does need more malt. however, aging may smooth out some of its harsh acidity.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Another great beer from my favorite Brewery. Wine like taste to it. Strong beer. I am going to visit this place this summer.
Added: If you didnít like this the first time try it again. sometimes you get one that is just way to carbinated.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 750ml: Cloudy dark orange wth a thin white head, wet hay, lemon, and sharp yeast in the aroma with some earthy spices, medium bodied with strong carbonation, starts and ends lightly sweet with bitterness at the end. Changes with the temperature with the best of them. For the price it is hard to beat.
