Not sure how to classify this. Pours a golden orangeish. Smells grassy and grainy, with a bit of pepper to it. Taste is similar - definitely spicy, like all of their beers. Dances on the tongue. Very light, very drinkable. Good.

A new Ommegang beer for 3 bucks a 12 ounce? - sure, what the hell - turbid orange - large, fluffy head - very soft and earthy aroma - surprisingly sweet notes or citrus (orange, mango) - dusty yeast notes - spicy and lightly sour rye - carbonation is full in the mouth, but very soft and creamy - fairly sour flavor which is not entirely pleasant, like soured orange juice - moderate acidity - husky grain flavors - spicy, pepper finish - lingering acidity and sour yeast notes - meh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Soft golden amber pour with a profuse creamy off white head, nicely laced.
Body shows the non-barley grains, medium with a crisp carbonation and spicy finish. Somewhat muted flavor and aromatics. A light showing of isoamyl acetate and 4-vinyl-guaicol account for most (if not all) of the ester character. Soft floral notes in the aroma and the flavor almost bottoms out....

Draft at LOL WOB. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Malty and creamy with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Easy drinking and tasty.

nice champagne type mouthfeel with the accompanying vibrant bubbles that are amped up a bit, normal for a beer. nice coriander and banana type spice with a good lingering woody and fresh malt finish and some clove. some hop in the mix the brew is just a bit sweet and slick enough to add substance to the lightish body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/8/12
Aroma: The aroma has some Belgian yeast, spice, bread, a little rye, some earth, and some herbs
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a inch of fizzy off-white head that leaves streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, pretty grainy, with some plus spice, fruity notes, and a slightly bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), it has a spicy, tingly feel to it, and a somewhat dry, spicy finish
This is a pretty interesting beer with some nice complexity. As I’m listing the components that I noticed, I’m sitting here thinking about how many other components there are to this beer. I probably missed quite a few, but I pointed out the ones that were clear to me. Quite interesting, well worth trying, and the type of beer where’d you probably find something different every time you try it. I may be a bit too high on the score, but I just found myself enjoying it.
