12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy medium gold with a huge billowy white head. I made the mistake of pouring this a bit too fast and was very surprised at the amount of head. Excellent head retention with huge chunks of lacing.
Aroma is very spicy and 100% Belgian as should be expected from Ommegang. Lots of coriander with hints of orange and lemon peel and lots of yeast. Some light bready malt in the background.
Flavor is very spicy, more so than I was expecting. Tons of coriander like the aroma but I can also pick up what seems like ginger. Light orange peel and peach. The malt is very hidden and really just about buried under the yeast esters. Some caramel and cracker. Mouthfeel is smooth with abundant sparkling carbonation. Crisp clean finish.
Overall, another great beer from Ommegang. I'm not sure this brewery even makes a bad beer. While the yeast could be tuned down a bit, all around it is quite nice.
