duvel tulip glass: big light tan head, a bit rocky, diminishes into a thick ring around the glass. bubbly brown amber body. bubbly mouthfeel. apple, dry, spicy, bready, and just a little bit of pleasant sourness. i had a hopdevil before this and this reminds me of hopdevil. anyway, i like it.

Slightly hazed bright honey-amber color. Big frothy off-white head. The nose is big and yeasty with bright hints of raisin. Sweet malt is also detectable rounded off with a rather subdued citrus spiciness and various other dark fruits. The body is lightly spritzy with a hint of citrus and underlying yeast - very light. Some fruit in the middle and a very light hint of alcohol. Spiced lightly. Somewhat of a light belgian.

cloudy amber, lots of carbonation on a substantial white head. aroma is candy, spice, sausage, slightly floral. flavor is very malty, nice and sweet. some spiciness offsets the malt, with a very dry finish. almost completely disappears in the aftertaste. another success from ommegang.

Cloudy amber brew with very little carbonation.I like a cloudy beer as I yhink it will have more body.Maybe not always true but still..Okay so the brewer is right that it does have a nice floral fruity aroma,nice maltiness also.Has a pleasant finish in that the fruit flavors hold on.Nice of Bier_Bauch to send this my way.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
12 oz bottle. Goldwn yellow with a good size white head. Aroma is interestingly hoppy with a nice base of... Belgianness (slighlty sweet yeasty alcohol?) Palate has a pleasant effervessence to it. Nice hoppy bitterness in the flavour with a delicate touch of spice. Pleasant dry tartness in the finish. Thanks for sharing Ken.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Pours a foamy lasting tan head on a hazy amber orange body. Lots of fruit specially oranges in the aroma. Also yeast and spices. Flavor is very special with lots of spices, malt and fruit and a dry and harsh end. Quite sharp and edgy and rather difficult to appreciate.

From the 750 ml bottle - It poured a tall beige head, with a rich "Belgian Ale" aroma, and had a lovely rich taste, although a tad light for the style. I do recommend this brew!

Truthfully wasnt very impressed by this. Maybe I expected more out of it. Decent yeasty, floral aomra. Dark red, light brown appearance, with a huge disappearing beige head. Basic Belgian flavor. Sweet yeasty, spicy flavor. Not the best Ommegang.

Clear orange appearance, excellent bright and crisp fruit aroma, It has a nice bite right when you take the first sip, but theres not nearly the complexity to this that there is in the Hennepin, sweet flavor with a hint of alcohol, leaves a somewhat buttery taste on the palate, invite a robot to your next party, they can just rage all night and make beeping noises.

cloudy deep gold with floaties. fruit aroma(orange, pear), with peppery spice and toffee. fruit on the palate seems more peachy with some earth and hops. finishes dry. quite nice.
