For me, this is a miss. It’s not lush as a beverage (it’s more dense and steely in texture); it’s not florid & open in its aromas (most flavor comes from sourness and bitterness on the tongue), and the flavors are confused and unpleasant - - tree bark, aluminum, and dusty spice rack. It’s lean, metallic, and close to astringent. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2015
12oz bottle. Poured a cloudy dark amber color with a huge off-white head, settles quickly, but remains a solid small white head. Aroma was dark fruits, some green apple notes. Boozy notes. Caramel, sweetness. Lots of boozy dark fruit notes. Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Aromas of cinnamon, dried berries, dry citrus, orange rind, cherry cola, pink cotton candy. Dark red-black with a lasting beige head. Spicy, fruity, strong. Medium-full bodied. TheGDBatPan (23) - Rolling Meadows, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2015
I love this as a seasonal ale, but there are definitely Strong Ales I like more. That being said, the spicy character of this brew will definitely appeal to you if, like me, you enjoy spicy teas without honey. kraddel (8152) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2015

Ommegang Adoration has a thin-to-medium cream-colored head, very little lacing, a murky, rust-orange appearance, and lots of tan chunks floating about. The aroma is of assorted spices, spiced bread or cake, dark fruits, such as raisin, and low bitterness. Sweetness and alcohol abound. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Ommegang Adoration finishes semi-wet and somewhat boozy. RJT weissblau (19) - - JAN 11, 2015
Pours amber to brown with fine, lacy head. Not overpowering in odor but pleasant, with stone fruit and malt predominating. Velvety moth feel. Sweet and rich taste. This is like a mild Quad. Very pleasant beer. Hides the hefty alcohol content well. c1raider (135) - New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Appears as the bottle design may have changed from what’s pictured. Not a huge fan if Belgian beers this one may be slightly above average but not with the price premium imo Holdwine (1232) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Wanted to like it more, but, to me, they overdid it. The variety and amount of spices led to a muddle. Either that, or I didn’t let it breath enough. I got the alcohol and some dark malt but my tongue became confused after that. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. in Boca. Home pour in a snifter. Pours a deep black cherry stained wood with an excited two finger head. More fizzy than pillow. Aroma is caramel, coriander, orange zest, Belgian yeasts, and leather. The taste is similar with the spices and orange zest. Heavy carb...just a little much in my opinion. Very sprite carbonation. Finish is warm and yeasty.
