"Okay Ommegang makes some good beers, this is the least in their lineup, BUT that doesn’t mean its a bad beer. Poured a hazy yellow. Yeasty and citrus aroma. Had a spice and citrus taste, very refreshing."

Golden, slightly hazy with semi-rocky white head. Aroma of chewy yeasty wheat and banana, slight citrus in the background. Flavorhas mostly citrus up front, fades towards the finish into a combination of yeast and grass. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Cloudy yellow, with a huge white head. Lemony, spicy, ever so slightly skunky aroma. Nicely tart, with notes of lemon and a hint of blueberry. Really appealing spritzy palate, very refreshing.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Aroma is very mild..citrus..lemons and yeast. Pale yellow with a quickly diminishing bubbly head. Very light bodied fore. Flavor is grassy/hay like with none of the citrus noted int he aroma..or almost none there is a spritzy quality that could be said to be citrus-like. Palate is thin. A bit of a let down.

Eh. By far not one of my most favorite Ommegangs. Smelled like cheap beer (sorry, but it did). Poured light yellowish, decent head. Taste was much better. Maybe better during the summer.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 6, 2005
Had one of these at the Winking Lizard. Fruity nose of berries and citrus, peaches licorice and dried cherries. Pours a hazy straw. The huge frothy white and tight head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. The flavor is rich and complex though light and fresh. The brew waffles back and forth between sweet and tart. Alcoholic middle with a brisk tart finish. The brew sweetens as is warms. The light watery body is soft with a slightly cloying feel to the finish.

Pours a light, hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells fruity, citrusy, spicy, tart. Tastes more or less the same with a touch of yeast. Plenty of fine bubbles with a medium body. Very satisfying. Definately something I’d love to try again.

Pailhead (4637) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Bottle: Light fruit with an aroma that reminds me of a body shop after painting a car. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Fruity with light orange and almost an alcohol flavor. Lightly spicey in the finish with a hint of yeast.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2005
25 oz bottle. Pours a golden straw, slight bottle conditioned cloudiness, thin bright white head, lively carbonation. Aroma of crisp wheat, grassy meadows, floral hops, some yeast, coriander, and maybe some vanilla. Second glass from bottle was a little more fruity with heavier dose of yeast. More prominant banana notes. Flavor is of very spicy wheat, cloes, yeast, and an an alcoholic finish. Mouthfeel was very light bodied, with generous amounts of carbonation dancing across the tongue. Overall very refreshing brew. Very crisp up front, but for some reason I keep getting a slightly harsh alcoholic finish that was the only distraction for this.

Aurelius (4065) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 Re-rate: Big step up from my initial rating eight years ago. Grassy/grainy aroma - very slightly doggy. Good label on a longneck. Very pale, the color of applesauce, thin white head. Biscuity, doughy, efferevescent, subtle fruiting. Nice and refreshing. ABC, Betton. Original Rating (2005) :Very pale gold, good bottle. Aroma is grassy/grainy. Palate is thin. Phenolic, floral, doughy. Not much spice. Disappointing brew from a great brewer.
