12oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with big eggshell head. Aroma is wheat, cracker, some perfumy florals and bit of spice. Taste is sweet with a bit of creaminess in the body followed by light bitterness. Decent beer. ryanscourt (1477) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2013
A grainy and maltier Belgium wit. Tons of flavor in the front with spicy Belgium spice finish. Great autumn take on a traditional summery style beer. milewide (2250) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bubbles and malt in the mouth.Slightly sweet taste. Beautiful head. Four grain make tis enjoyable. Little hops and a bit more bland than I hoped. justsayswell (281) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - SEP 17, 2013
When I popped the top on this one, foam bubbled from the bottleneck like a champagne bottle. Poured murky caramel with a big foamy head-- beautiful pour. Nose is fruity ommegang yeast, banana, caramel malt. Palate is medium and creamy, just like the description. Taste is sweet caramel, a little banana, black pepper, hint of alcohol. Faintly bitter finish. Delicious.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 Beautiful pour, as I have come to expect from Ommegang. Light amber body with champagne like carbonation resulting in a massive tight bubbled white head, really amazing looking. I get a lot of the grain in the aroma, mostly barley, but not much rye, some bready yeast qualities as well. Flavor is grainy, malty, crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable at 5.8. Another great release from Ommegang and actually a sessionable one too. A very different, but equally exceptional fall harvest ale. bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2013
a little hop aroma with mild malt notes, a little malt sweetness in the nose, some pleasant mildly fruity, earthy yeast esters. fairly clear brassy gold color, a reasonable off white head. rich body. a touch of rye malt dryness. smooth, round malt flavor, with little bitterness, just a touch in the finish. a nice gently tangy quality.

On tap. Pours a hazy golden color with a big foamy white head that has good retention. Aroma of fruity yeast esters, banana, grass hops. Tastes of bananas, cloves, spicy yeast, some black pepper, lemon rind, oranges and a touch of cereal grains. Light to medium body, good carbonation with a slightly sticky finish.

Full head that lasts with a rich caramel colour. Aroma of malt and yeast, tastes like a Belgian with a bit of sweetness of rye. Palate of barley and yeast.
