jspencer78 (36) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Beautiful amber with a large, slightly off-white long lasting head that leaves lots of lacing. Medium body, lively carbonation. This beer is better than average because of its finish which is spicy, fruity, slightly sweet but wonderfully balanced.

jgb9348 (5988) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Hazy golden coloured body with a large, four centimetre tall off-white head that leaves a decent lace on the glass. Aroma of honey, bread, yeast, alcohol, coriander seed, curacao, hay and some grass - nice and pungent. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hay and grass flavours at first with a lot of yeast and wheat noticeable and a good sweetness from honey and bananas as well along with a dry herbal finish that shows similar to a saison. Aftertaste shows a light sweetness, but this is all about the dry quality and yeast complexities of the finish. Overall, a nice and robust beer that shows more of a belgian than of an American, and that is a good thing, given the complexities and the old world quality of the beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-July-2015 for US$2,59 sampled at home in Washington on 17-January-2016.

First rating of 2016! On draft at Good Dog Bar in Philly. This beer pours a golden color with a very minimal, white head. There isnt a whole lot of lacing either. The sweet nose featured some grassy hops, bready malts and some light yeast. The body wasnt too heavy and the flavors were really well balanced. The flavors were on the fruity side, with hints of grassy hops, bread, yeast and grapes.

hawthorne00 (3714) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Golden amber with a large, almost white head that lasts quite well. Aroma of ornages, dough, some banana, clove, pepper. Medium bodied, moderate to high carbonation. Sweet oranges, nectarines, what might kindly be called sugary dough, far too much clove, some pepper at the bitter and somewhat hot finish. I suppose its not _that_ boozy - I still wouldnt have guessed as high as 9.5%. And La Chouffe and their "IPA Tripel" are both quite boozy. I dunno why they get away with it and this doesnt quite - softness of mouthfeel? Better pale malt? More fruit?

301215. We are only just starting to see Brewery Ommegang beers here is Brisbane but it has been well worth the wait. I picked this bottle up from Archive Beer Boutique and from the time that you open it everything about this beer screams Belgian Ale. The aroma is all about tropical fruit with peach, nectarine and apricot coming through, along with a clove spiciness. In the glass the beer looks reasonably thick and while it is not as full bodied in the mouth as you are expecting it to be it still has a full rich creamy mouthfeel that makes you wonder why you only bought one bottle. At 9.5% ABV this is not a session beer and it needs to be treated with respect although it does contain the alcohol very well. Smooth and full flavoured I cant wait to try more beers from Brewery Ommegang. There is a sweetness in the finish that sits well alongside the malt. Make no mistake this is a very complex beer.
