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.

Golden orange pour with a tall soapy head. Aroma of bread, oat, spice, and barley. Bread, oat, spice flavor with some citrus. Very tasty.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a large off-white head that lasted beyond mid-glass and left ample sticky lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and bread with just a hint of Ommegang’s fruity Belgian yeast. The flavor is malt, fruity Belgian yeast, a and bit of rye spice followed by mild hops bitterness. Silky, well rounded mouthfeel. Very nice ale.

12oz bottle, definitely bottle conditioned with the huge snap opening, also the gigantic head when poured. Foamy white, takes quite a while to dissipate even after using proper pouring techniques. Brew is a hazy orange color and smells heavily spicy like a saison with some hops as well. Creamy body with a tangy carbonation mouth feel, definitely cool. Taste light and spicy, easy to drink. I’m a little disappointed as more flavor came through on tap but still a good beer just not special.

Cloudy golden orange color with high carbonation. Big cereal depth to the malt with medium rye. Assertive Belgian yeast complements well with clove. Tangy citrus finish. Tastes like a fall brew. Nicely drinkable.

"Huh...not amber in the American sense, definitely Belgian. Lots of grainy nuances in the nose and flavor. Rye stands out, as does the wheat. A mellow treat. Bubbly yet creamy

Pretty interesting, with some orange and good rye profile. Cloudy amber pour with good head and lacing. Light grainy bitter finish. Good balance and good yeast. Tap at whole foods.

This beer tastes like the first sight of Main Street, but with a bitter cereal finish. The aftertaste is also bitter, like biting into a plant, and lingers. It has a general beerish smell--apparently nothing else stood out to me about the aroma as I was taking my notes. There is also a vague candy/malt flavor. I did not note it as such, but I believe the particular candy I was thinking of was taffy. This beer is best enjoyed when sips are followed by a spoonful of vanilla ice cream and while at Disney World. In a pinch, if either or both of those conditions are unavailable, the first hour or so of Pleasantville will do.

Transfer from BA review on 9-26-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a hazy copper-orange colored brew with a one finger white head. The head faded rather fast to leave a moderate amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is biscuity and yeasty with notes of banana, some dark fruit notes and a light caramel and citrus sweetness. Taste – The taste begins with flavors of sweet caramel, rye bread and a biscuit like taste. As the flavor advances a lighter yeasty flavor comes to the tongue. The yeast is accompanied by some of the more classic spices associated with the Belgian style beer; peppery, clove and nutmeg. More toward the end some citrus flavors of a more lemon nature mixed with some banana flavors which combine with the rest to leave a pleasant sweet and sour malty flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body f the beer is rather average in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. It is actually quite a refreshing feel for the brew, making it rather easy to drink. It is also surprisingly nice for the rye and bready flavors when mixed with some of the sweeter caramel notes. Overall it was quite nice. Overall – A very tasty beer with a fantastic feel and nice flavor transitions and tastes. It is definitely one to try if you get a chance.
