I'm not gonna go too into this beer like all the other beer snobs on here I drink my beer at home straight out of the bottle or my stein
. So I've been wanting to get this beer for a while and finally had a chance to get it. By far the best blond I ever had. It's not too watered down like a lot of them are but its not too much of shitty fruity Taste. The only reason. I have it a 4.5 was because the after taste is a little too fruity for me. But with no beer snob comments and BS it's a good blonde beer period.

Just what I expect out of a Belgian Ale. Complex taste with no off flavors. Easy drinker - you don't even notice the 9.5% ABV.

750ml bottle into stemmed tulip glass.

A- Poured a nice golden orange color, bright despite the bit of yeast sediment that made its way into the glass. A fluffy white head, almost 2f, holds up and leaves heavy lacing, soap-like.
Lots of tiny bubbles.

S- Candied peaches, yeast, some citrus. Dry, very pleasant.

T- Belgian style yeast, some candy sweets, peach, lemon.

M- Seriously carbonated to full feel level. Tingly. Not as tart as others in the style. Dry, fruity finish.

O- The yeast strain drives this brew nicely. Flavorful and drinkable, a smooth 9.5% abv.

A delightful beer! I've yet to be disappointed by Ommegang brewery. About as good an example of an American made Belgian style. Reminds me of Duvel. This is a real keeper and will become a staple of my beer repertoire. A great find!!!
