Copper-orange pour with a soapy head that leaves soap lacing. The nose is truly Belgian, with yeast and sweet doughy notes. Flavors of sweet malt, light dough, grains and melony citrus dominate. The finish definitely shows the assertive rye accents. Well-balanced, the mouthfeel is smooth with semi-soft carbonation, leaving a creamy, medium-bodied palate. This is a nice Belgian offering from Ommegang. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Reviewed 10/21/2012. 12 oz. bottle poured into a regular glass. A: Pours a murky tawny color. The head is a three finger offwhite color with fantastic retention - even after a minute, itís still one finger high. A generally great looking beer. S: Bready, grainy, and earthy. Itís quite malty, but at the same time, itís fairly hoppy as well. The aroma, in spots, gives off a slightly fruity vibe as well. T: Iíll give it credit, itís not like anything Iíve had before. The trio of wheat/oats/rye comes through in various points (wheat opens the profile, rye finishes things, and the oats íhold togetherí the profile). Where this shines is in its long lasting and complex finish/aftertaste. This is really good, and the only detraction is the slight plasticky taste from the yeast. M: A little heavier than I like, but itís still quite easy to drink and creamy smooth. The touch of rye dryness is quite pleasing. O: This beer just works in spite of how hard it is to categorize and pick apart. This beerís finesse and moderate complexity helps it rise above the average marzen-cum-pumpkin ale.

4 pack. Great looker: clear orange body, impressive head. Although itís not highly hopped, I think itís the combination of yeast spiciness, rye and plentiful carbonation give it a noticeable bite. Underneath is some malt breadiness and citrus bitterness. More dry than sweet, more interesting than standard fall seasonals.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a chunky orange with a huge white head and a nose of fresh-cut hay, light pizza sauce, and a touch of wheaty honey. Flavor is bready lemon and light grainy prune in a salad of a bale of hay. Light mouthfeel. Not bad.

Mix of flavors made aroma and taste difficult to quantify with no real distinctive qualities; maltier than I expected.

An amber copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a smooth fruity malt with grassy notes, treacle, orange peels and coriander, nice and smooth. In mouth, a creamy smooth vanilla malt with coriander, curacao, alcohol warmth, nice and silky. On tap at Snallygaster DC, Oct. 13 2012.

Pailhead (6141) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of cotton candy, citrus, a hint of apple, and spice. It pours a mostly transparent orange with a touch of haze and three finger orange tinted off-white head with excellent retention. There are some clumped sheets/rings of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus (mostly orange) with some light-moderate cotton candy. The finish has light orange peel, spice, and a touch of floral notes. At times I do get a hint of metal. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

shadey (2033) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 20, 2012
12oz bottle. Orange pour with a big pillowy head of tight white bubbles. Aroma is sweet and lightly grassy. Flavors are crisp, sweet malt and a nice grassy hop finish that cleans up the sweetness. A really nice, easy-drinking beer. I know itís good, when it is half gone before I even start thinking about taking notes.

To start off, I really like this one! Dark orange/copper color with a 3 finger head. I am picking up mostly the typical wheat character in the aroma with bubblegum and bananas, with a bit more malt in the background. Flavor is more of the same with a nice hop bitterness which is in balance with the grain backbone. The carbonation is high with very small champagne like bubbles. Wow, wish I had more than a bottle of this one!

puboflyons (2783) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 16, 2012
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is an incredibly foamy bronze-copper amber. The aroma is full of Belgian sugars, pale grainy malts, and the faintest of floral hops. The body is medium and acidic. The taste is delicately sweet and grainy with a nice dose of pepper and cloves that linger for a minute. Hard to define this as a Harvest Ale but it is a wonderful beer.
