4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought this at a specialty beer shop and it was a good choice!
Pours a dark golden color with a fluffy offwhite head that had some rather impressive staying power with some lacing. Smells of apple, yeast and some kind of tropical fruit. Tastes very strongly of Belgian style yeast with tropical fruit and oddly enough I swear there was a hint of bubble gum. Just a dahs of vanilla as well. Mouthfeel is heavy, a bit like watered down motor oil which is a hallmark for a fine beer.
This kind of specialty beer is exactly why brand loyalty is so difficult for a complex person like me to keep! Samuel Adams hit a home run with this one!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear deep golden with a gigantic eggshell colored head. The head dissipates with a soap sudsy look. Belgian golden ale nose with spice muted by the oak barrel. Moderately heavy mouthfeel with a slight carbonation burn. Vibrant flavors. Drinks like a Belgian strong ale with the bubblegum and spiciness of a tripel. Some tropical esters.

Pours copper with a fluffy white head. Aroma is apples, pears and Belgian yeasts. Lots of belgian yeast in the taste, some apple again, some vanilla notes too. Lively fermentation but a nice take on a belgian classic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with a nice head. Smells like it should with a nice spice aroma. The Belgium flavor is on the higher end, and the spices are nice. The spices taste like ommegang mixture. Overall a nice flavor.
I had this from a 22 ounce bottle.
