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.
