3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly funky belgiany nose with some lemon citrus. Thick persistent head and lacing. Dark burnt orange and cloudy. Tangy earthy malts and dried lemon rind and peppery spice...maybe grains of paradise or white pepper. Nice and complex autumn offering. Would be awesome with any kind of squash soup or a gingery Asian dish or even some grilled salmon.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Common Table.
The beer pours a golden color with a white head. I get a lot of grain notes in the aroma, with a hint of yeast and some grass. The flavor is fairly dry with a lot of the husky grain notes. I also get some grass and earth from the hops as well as some spices and some yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Like a crisp fall day in a bottle. A golden, delicious beer with a creamy head. The earthy notes of the grains really shine but are well balanced with a mild hop flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Itís been a while since Iíve had an Ommegang. Aroma is slightly tangy, tawny Belgian - implied oranges, slight funky bret undertones. Good label, clever name, intense cloudy bronze brew with a dense eggshell head. Smooth and creamy, the mouthfeel dominates the flavor. When you first take a swig, youíre presented with this whipped cream consistency - light, yet substantive. After that, you get some herbal hop bitterness, but itís a bit uptight - no real floral or fruity notes to the hopping. The beer is pretty dry, rye twang, a little peach/sloe sourness. Bitter/spice. Another piece of craft brewing from Ommegang. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour with a sudsy white head that laces well. Lots of graininess in the aroma with yeast funk, spice, lemon zest, cat urine, dank hops with bits of green vegetables. Flavor is spicy yeast, grainy malts and earthy hops . Rounded palate with a bitter dry ending. Spicy enough to lend heat on the back end thinking it was alcohol. Very Saison like with a creamier palate. Not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 bottle. cloudy dark wheat colored body with a tall-building rocky tan head. nose is quite yeast: a mix of creamed banana and red apple along with a mish-mash of bread / grains / dough. over-carbonation and a little grainy, but otherwise itís decent, just unexciting. very much like a dunkelweizen.
