3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is a golden amber color with a huge off-white head. Aroma is rich caramel malt and some dark fruits. Taste follows the nose, plus there is the distinct Belgian yeast which Ommegang loves to use. It has a surprisingly light taste, though. It also has a light, crisp feel. Not too bad.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a wonderful beer. Poured into a chalice. Appearance is reddish - orange with a nice fluffy cream head that remains throughout. Aroma is a bouquet of some spice, maybe cloves or coriander, and orange peel or fruit with some slightly malty tones as well. The taste is slightly spicy with a mild yeast and malt flavor. There is definitely some fruit in the taste as well, maybe orange but not overpowering. Very little alcohol in the aroma and taste but the feel is creamy and carbonated. Sweet with a slightly dry finish. Very easy to drink. Makes a great session beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a murky rose-hued amber with some visible sediment, and an impressive creme coloured head. On the nose, fruity esters of apple, peach, banana with a faint earthy note. Taste-wise, dates, brown sugar, mineral notes that lead into a light iodine taste, raisin, banana, hard water, and some faint citrus. It VERY much makes me think of something from the Unibroue family, and I absolutely mean that as a compliment. Thumbs up.

Fruity and bitter is what I tasted. It was a little to bitter for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I love this beer. I think of it as a Belgian Amber. Yeast profile is spot on for a Belgian and it has an underlying malt sweetness you rarely see. Slightly fruity as well. I can drink this all day.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
De couleur orange, avec une belle tête blanche qui vient couvrir le liquide avec une bonne rétention. Arôme de banane, d’orange, caramel malté et d’épices un peu floral.
En bouche, le zest d’orange, pomme, poivre et autres fruits doux. Le tout dans une ensemble complexe et bien équilibré!

On tap at the Ginger Man. Unassuming appearance, toffee nose, leads into gooey caramel and toffee taste with hints of Belgian yeast. Finishes fast, but this ones all about the flavor. Sly, indeed.
