Not a fan. Bottle to glass. Slight fruit and grain in aroma. Taste was a letdown. Too much hops. Too strong not blended

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation transparent light orange colored body and a fair lacing. . The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild nut mild caramel mild wheat crisp hops and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
BOD 7/10/14. Pours a hazy medium amber with an exceptional head, lacing and retention. Nice, but light, nose of sweet malt and Belgian yeast fruit (banana) over a light spice (clove). Almost medium bodied with a nice slick mouthfeel. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is a bit complex, superbly balanced and reasonably intense. It begins with an effervescent rush of sweetness - biscuit malt and fruit - that yields to a mild bitterness. As the bitterness fades, rye flavor and it’s associated touch of spice come forward over a slightly phenolic note. The finish is somewhat crisp, a bit dry and the light bitterness lingers over a light sweetness with a clove phenolic note. Quite nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber with a bubbly 1" off-white head, cobwebs of lace. Solid, robust aroma of grain. Taste is a marvelous combination of grains, caramel, and dry earth that become more bitter as they float smoothly through the palate to a lingering sweet and bitter finish. A truly remarkable brew - highly recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orangish-yellow with a cm of off-white head. moderate coarseness, diminishes moderately-to-slowly. Aroma is yeast, bit of sweet scone (with a hint of raw sugar) Slight lemongrass. Body is medium-light, watery, with a fine, creamy carbonation. No burn. Flavor is lemon-grass, leafy hops, bit of sap resin, tea? I’m having a surprisingly difficult time isolating the flavor for how big it is. Right up front. I’m going to go with a hint of black tea under a grassy hop flavor... and well infused bitterness. Overall, another very nice offering from Ommegang. Doesn’t stand out to the extent that I would be buying a 4-pack over their other beers, but still great.
