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.

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.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2012
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.

Hazy copper pour, lots of frothy off white head and striped sticky lacing..... Aroma of sweet grainy malts, light rye, wheat and fruity yeast..... Taste is of fruity yeast, spicy rye, wheat, grainy and sweet malts ... Finish is dry and spicy with a nice bitter hoppy bite ... Refreshing and good

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2012
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.

12 oz bottle, thank you Shaun. Orange pour with a slight haze and medium sized white head. Doughy banana esters with earthy manure like rye character. Bread and cereal character leads to dry wheat and caramel. Medium body with a very dry finish. I donít think I will ever be able to get into rye thatís not in a massive stout or porter.

12 oz bottle, thank you samp01 for sharing. Pours hazy orange with a long lasting, foamy, white head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is of yeast, spices, hops, bready malt and hint of pears. Body is full and tangy. Yeast, spicy rye, herbal hops, caramel and bready malt, some fruit combine on the palate. Finish is long and spicy. Delicious, complex brew.

Draft at friendlyís ice house in san antonio, TX. THis beer is a decent one. A little too sweet/malty for me. I know the point is to enjoy the grains but this couldíve been given a stronger farmhouse yeast or a little more hops to cut the sweetness. Some nice spiec notes and a good mouthfeel. Solid brew.
