Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a beautiful orangish-amber colour with tall off-white foam and lots of Belgian lace. Aromas of lively Belgian ale yeast, nice fruity esters, black pepper and clove phenols, even more so as it warmed. Nice, subtle malty flavors, likely a blend of pilsner and some caramel, grainy with hints of vanilla, marshmallows, some earthy and resiny hoppy essence. Light-medium body, above average carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste with eventually finished with a crisp snap. I liked this one, I hope to find it again someday.

Rye really translates neatly in this one with a good bit of spiciness. Has a sort of rye saison quality like Saison Rue. Medium sweetness. Definitely "earthy" like the name would imply.

Aroma of roasted malt and banana nutty Belgian yeast. Flavors are the same with a nice hop balance and a slight sweet malt/yeasty finish. Balanced and full flavored. One of my favorite seasonal a from ommegang. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Hazy light brown, big frothy head. Not much aroma - some bread, some pepper, some light fruity smells. Rich mouthfeel. Taste is toast, some mild fruity flavors, and some yeasty sweetness. Not bad.

Cloudy orange amber, pours with substantial head that quickly reduces to thin coating with attractive lacing. Light grain, grass and herb aromas with hint of spice, which maintain in glass with yeasty and malt notes. Creamy and medium-bodied with good but controlled carbonation. Balanced palate with very slightly bitter rye finish, a real representation of autumn harvest flavors. Very sessionable in both restrained taste and 5.8 percent ABV.

Pours a hazy caranel color and has a huge head that poured over the side of the glass. Malt and grain notes, with a bit of citrus flavor as well. Very good and multi-layered.

dwyerpg (4653) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 10, 2014
This is a super fruity beer, a golden ale I’d say. Looks nice. Orange-brown. It has a touch of hops in the body but not in the finish. It’s good.

ARH (563) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. Sweet citrus and berries hit the nose with a light grain touch. There’s also some bread crust and a slight funk. Sweet caramel syrup comes through as it warms up. It’s a slightly hazy, orange brown beer with a dense, foamy, off white head that retains a medium thick ring and fuzzy surface with light web lace on the glass. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. It’s a highly fizzy, slick, full bodied beer with flavors of marmalade and toast coming through. Sweet caramel apple flavors come through as it warms. The finish is crisp and dry with lots of rye. The toasted rye aftertaste lingers with some hints of orange soda too.
