Tap at BCTC 2009. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a medium off white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, bready malt and Belgian yeast esters. Flavor of the same citrusy and floral hops, bready malt and Belgian yeast. Kind of on the sweet side of the spectrum. I think they need to refine this one a bit.
Draft at sharp edge. Straw color, cloudy. Aroma is candy and with slight lemon. Spicy, dry finish. Taste Belgium yeast and sugar candy, with decent bitter finish. Average carbonation. Would get again.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a pale yellow with a fruity aroma. Taste is a typical Belgian wit like Hoegaarden, but with a thinner slightly tart character. Pretty good stuff. Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Large Format Sniffter. Hops were a bit citrusy and not a strong as an American IPAs as expected. Straw colored, a bit cloudy. Medium carbonation. Matly, citus aroma. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2009
An IPA tripel, not a triple IPA! Sort of like Hop-It. Golden, hazy, surprisingly little head, surprisingly little lace. Nose of yeast and honey and some citrus abd floral hops. Taste of yeast and honey and moderate citrus hops with notes of a black pepper mini-bit. Works well, but a bit sweet and slightly under hopped, slightly under whelmed by the tripel yeast as well. malrubius (3017) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 28, 2009
BCTC. Golden orange with head. Sugary orange spicy aroma. Sweet orange syrupy very sweet fresh peach. Overly full thick sticky palate. Disappointing. kkearn (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Draft, at BCTC 2009. Pours hazy orange-yellow, topped with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of caramel up front, with hints of citrus, sugar, floral notes and mild spice. The citric hops took a little more a dominant role in the flavor, along with candi sugar, caramel, grass, and alcohol. Citrus and sweet caramel linger on the palate. Decent, but one of Ommegang’s weaker debuts at BCTC 09. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Tap at BCTC. One of my favorite styles and favorite breweries here, but this one wasn’t working for me. Super under-attenuated and sweet, with a long alcohol burn, I had trouble getting much out of this. Grassy and fairly yeasty, with only mildly hoppy notes coming through. Not a fan, unfortunately. egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2009
[BCTC 09] Hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, spices, grass, pine, citrus fruits, some caramel malts, and a bit of alcohol as well. Taste of grass, citrus fruits, light spices, toasty yeast, and a dry, bitter, hoppy, lightly alcoholic finish.
