Very aromatic: fruity, cloves, and banana. Pours a clear orange with very stable head. Malt body is sweet but tapers off to feature a typical Belgian yeast profile.

A good solid beer. Not my favorite from Ommegang but worth a taste. Drank from a growler.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, light to moderate herbs and soap for the hops and yeast, with apple, wood, pepper and hints of a fruity liqueur. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, off-white with excellent crust lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy medium amber/orange. Flavor is moderately acidic to start, then finishes faintly sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively to fizzy carbonation ad a dry. Although a little simple in the flavor up front, this Rye Beer is excellent.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Saison aspect in the nose with some dust. Slightly hazy amber body. Thin tan head. Dry palate with a lovely saison-like finish. Remarkably full bodied for a 5.8% ABV beer, defying the laws of beer logic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. The aroma is strong Belgian yeast, with typical banana and spice notes. The flavor is a harmonious blend of rye spice, yeast, fruit, white pepper and coriander. Has a nice smooth wheat and oat palate, with a crisp and tangy wheaty finish. A lot going on here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a beautiful orangish-amber colour with tall off-white foam and lots of Belgian lace. Aromas of lively Belgian ale yeast, nice fruity esters, black pepper and clove phenols, even more so as it warmed. Nice, subtle malty flavors, likely a blend of pilsner and some caramel, grainy with hints of vanilla, marshmallows, some earthy and resiny hoppy essence. Light-medium body, above average carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste with eventually finished with a crisp snap. I liked this one, I hope to find it again someday.
