look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Murky sunburnt lemondrop yellow, a foamy white head slowly calms to a frothy film. Random foamy lacing.

Aroma: Lots of bubblegum sweetness and yeast. Some banana and fruit sweetness.

Taste: Very much like the aroma, a banana and bubblegum backbone hold up most of the ale. A dry finish that has a bit of an alcoholic edge.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, dry.

Overall: A bit too heavy for my liking but certainly flavorful in the true Belgian way.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bright golden blonde, clear, with a medium level of head.
Aromas of lemon peel, orange zest, hay, fall leaves, fennel, wet walnuts and unsweetened caramel.
Flavors of lemon curd, citrus candy, apple liqueur, canned peaches, fried dough and a toasted coconut/salted caramel tone on the end.
The finish is not overly long, but crisp and refreshing, exactly what I wanted from this offering. Lemon pepper chicken, pan seared halibut, traditional dover sole or soy glazed sea bass would be awesome with this.
There is probably better Ommegang beers, but I like this one as the hot weather approaches!
Great quality and very good flavor... a typical Ommegang product.

Mainly yellow, with a touch of gold. Forms a large white head, and there are a lot of bubbles coming up from the bottom of my Duvel glass.

Heavy citrus scent from this, a bit like orange juice. I can also smell the Belgian yeast, those are the main smells I can detect.

Very Belgian in character. It has all the flavors I associate with Belgians, citrus, pepper, and that distinct flavor from the yeast. Has a bit of hop bitterness at the finish, and the alcohol is very well hidden.

Very smooth and solid, nicest feel I've had in some time.

Overall a really nice beer. I am a big fan of both breweries involved with this, and they did not disappoint. I can tell the influence of each brewery, and the combination works well. It does taste more like a triple to me, which is a good thing. Very much worth trying.
