Ommegang Fruition
Draft at Dutch’s from recent notes. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus and tropical fruit character, yeast, pale malts, wheat bread, nice easy drinking beer, worth trying.

Ommegang Three Philosophers
Large caged and corked bottled pours slightly cloudy amber-ruby with tan head and lacing. Aroma: dark brown bread, raisins, prune juice, cherry juice. Flavor: caramelized brown sugar, figs, dates, prunes, black pepper, sour cherry, cloves, cinnamon, plums, chocolate, nuts. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied, rich, soft on tongue, yet a bit too dry from the spices. Warm alcohol finish. A sipper, for sure.

Ommegang Gnomegang
Bouteille. Bière orange à mousse blanche assez persistante. Nez : peu prononcé mais allant sur les céréales et le floral. Bouche : biscuit, orange, caramel, levures, un peu de sucre candi, des épices (poivre, coriandre ?), une amertume et une effervescence moyenne. Une bonne triple "à la belge" mais qui a un peu des allures de "saison".

Ommegang Short Sleeve Saison
I am a big fan of Ommegang Hennepin Saison and Gnomegang Blonde Ale. I picked up this Saison within a week of it hitting the shelf in my local distributor. It poured with well over an a inch of semi rocky head which holds up well. Aroma and taste of tart lemon, a slight bitterness from maybe the lemon peel and peppery spices. Very dry finish. I have had 4 of the 6. It’s ok, but I am going back to Hennepin and Gnomegang.

Ommegang Game of Thrones #5 - Three-Eyed Raven
750ml bottle. Best before 04/14/2017. Today’s date 04/17/2017. Lesson of the day. Don’t overfill the cellar. Pours a lovely dark, dark, garnet with a frothy tan coloured head. On the nose lots of yeasty Belgian notes, wet basement, citrus, light honey, and a very faint chocolate note. Taste wise, mineral notes, faint wet concrete, dried fruits, black liquorice, and Concorde grapes that heads into dried fruit, more of the grape, roasty malt notes, with some mineral bitterness that hides a lot of fruit in the finish. Pretty unique, I can’t say I’ve tasted another beer quite like it. I would definitely buy it again.

Very interesting. Not like any other kick I’ve had before. Not sweet, not sour, just.... Different. Weird. Kinda like a tart cherry pie? Definitely wouldn’t want a full bottle, but as a small pour, it grew on me. Wouldn’t seek out again tho.

Ommegang Sirens’ Song
Sampled on draft at the answer. Clear brown pour with small light tan head. Boozy nose with noted of plum and raisin. Flavor is not as alcoholic, but still some booziness and a fair amount of toffee, raisin, and brown sugar. Big old sweet maltbomb. Maybe back in the day I would have been attracted to this, but not now.

Solidny quadrupel (choć daleko mu do klasy chociażby Struise) z dość niskim ciałem, idący w karmel i ciemne owoce, z delikatnie wiśniowo kwaskowatym finiszem. Przyjemne piwo.

Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is quite boozy with sugar coated raisins. Taste starts sweet and fruity with raisins and dried berries. Finish has some cardboard and rag notes but not too intense. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s a decent beer but it has its flaws.

Ommegang Abbey Ale
Clear, dark amber color with tan head. Aroma has sugar and dried fruits, mostly raisins. Taste follows with dried fruits and candi sugar but there is also a metallic note, not really pleasant. Medium body, medium plus carbonation. The metallic note fades after some time but it’s still a mediocre beer for my taste.

0.355l bottle. Slightly hazy very dark orange body with a beige head. Aroma of dark sugar syrup, orange zest, nutmeg, toast, cherries and a hint of booze. Taste of chocolate, dark sugar, orange peel, plums, toast, brandy and floral hops. The alcohol is quite obvious, but doesn’t ruin the sensation. Very nice beer.

Ommegang Hennepin - Mosaic
Quite floral & perfect for spring! Pours gold w/ a white head & plenty of lacing. The aroma screams flowers & spring! The taste is also heavy on the floral notes with a medium body that makes this oh so drinksble. It is wonderfully balanced as it leaves just a bit of dryness on the tongue in the finish. Quite tasty & nicely done!

Ommegang Game of Thrones #7 - Valar Dohaeris
Thin off white head of fine bubbles. Low carbonation for a Belgian. Sweet malty a bunch of earthy overtones. Light fruit, dried grains, spices and straw. Color is a murky golden brown. Plenty of carbonation life in the mouth. Bubbles explode with the sip. More earthy malts, straw, herbal hops, dried flowers and tangerine. Moderate alcohol presence. Dry palate with some lingering spices. A pretty good Belgian which is expected from Ommegang.

CAn you get more flavor at 4.5%. Very dry but not astringent. Light lemon zest gives balance but lihgt bitterness sticks to back of throat and lingers.

Second bottle, purchased as singles for the average unit price of $2.50. 11.2floz bottle, BBD "01 2021." Poured into a tulip glass. Appears dark plum red in color and a tan head. Smells like a cherry cough drop, but doesn’t taste like one. Palate is mild to moderate tart, effervescent, and fairly light in body. A pleasantly dry cherry ale.

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours hazy lemon color gold with a vigorous white head. Aroma of citrus and peppery spice. Approaches med body. Flavor is earthy, citrus, peppery spice. Maybe zest. Rather firm/strong flavors for such a low ABV ale. Should be quite sessionable. It’s not dryish, but bitter? Hard to say. The spice substitutes for bitter.

Ommegang Nirvana IPA
Surprised to see Ommegang steering toward the middle of the road with this and their Witte... and disappointed that they are not very good at it. Bottle into nonic, dark gold and slightly hazy color with a pillowy foam, a bit of which persists. Tiny bubbles rising. Aroma of resin and grapefruit. The taste is kind of mineral-y and bitter, grapefruit rind. Boy, am I glad I look at BA from time to time or I would have missed, ’Fails to accentuate specific notes from the flavour profile or to elevate the beer as a gestalt whole.’ Um, yeah, whatever. This ale is a bit spicy, but otherwise lacks any complexity and is situated somewhere toward the lower end of the middle of the road.

Ommegang Witte
Got one bottle,thinking it was something new since it is labelled ’White Wheat Ale" instead of Witte... but I guess not. It’s at 5.2% and conforms to the usual descriptions, such as ’Very citrus forward with a little spice on the aftertaste. Earthy tones prevail along with a slightly dish soap reminiscent lemony tint and tartness. Light bodied and refreshing on a warm afternoon.’ Yeah, soapy, boring, not that great and the spice, coriander or clove, is not one I care for in an ale. One and done.

Ommegang Gnomegang
Puszysta, obfita i drobna piana, która długo utrzymuje się na powierzchni i pięknie zdobi szkło. Barwa złota, lekko mętna. Aromat przypomina klasycznego tripla - jest troszkę biszkoptów, brzoskwiń, ziół... W smaku słodkawe, biszkoptowo rodzynkowe z dodatkiem gumy balonowej, kandyzowanej moreli i miodu, z fajnym ziołowo przyprawowym finiszem i lekką chmielową goryczką. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, bardzo pijalne w odbiorze, praktycznie nie czuć alkoholu.
To po prostu bardzo dobry, deserowy i pijalny jednocześnie Tripel w belgijskim stylu - przypomina De Dolle Dulle Teve.
