Had a dark orange body with a small off white head. Yeasty aroma with spicy vegitables also. Flavor was mainly of alcohol and slight bitterness. Little sweet at times. Seems to have a decent balance to the beer.

750 mL bottle. Pours amber with a huge smooth white head. Very nice lacing. Slightly malty aroma with notes typical of Belgian yeast strains. Phenols are noticeable toward the bottom of the glass. Sharp, earthy flavor with a light spices and a candi sugar sweetness. Semi-dry finish. Earthy bitterness in the aftertaste.

Hazy copper color with a decent sized foamy head. Aroma of fruit & yeast. Fruit and spice flavor without the alcohol bite you get from the stronger Belgians.

Hazy amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma is yeasty with a little pear. Flavor spicy and peppery with hints of green apple, a little citrus tartness and a clean dry finish. Palate is thin and spritzy.

750 mL. Pours amber with caramel tones and bubbly with a huge rocky off-white head; foamy lacing. Caramel malt and oak aromas with a lingering fruitiness and musty yeast nose. Warm and buttery caramel and oak flavors with a yeast body Medium bodied and dry palate with lively carbonation.

The most ’Chimay like’ out of all of their offerings. Same signature aroma and taste at half the cost with slightly less alcohol. Chimay did a wonderful job of transporting their offering over to their US brewery with Duvel. Available at Downtown Wine & Spirits in Somerville, MA

UPDATED: APR 10, 2006 very nice belgian style Very good flavor, which tastes like a blend of fruits. A great blend of carbonation, and flavor. On the expensive side, but worth the dough.

Pour is a copper with a big white head. Aroma is a coriander and clove. Flavor is deffinatly fruity and spicy. Flavor is a bit of a let down but it is still tasty and a ok attempt at the style. No rating for the amount you pay for a beer but this is deffinatly worth it as it only cost me $3.99 for a bomber.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 They sell ommegang beers in the grocery stores in my area, so I consider myself pretty lucky. All of their brews are good. This particular brew is very fruity, with a modest alcohol burn, nice stuff.
