I have to rate this beer based on my preferences. While others may like this one, I found it to be horrendous. I couldn't even choke it down. The aroma was actually pretty good, but when I got the first sip onto my palate, it was defintely not for me. I actually picked up an overwhelming taste of cloves and I cannot stand cloves. It was such an overpowering taste that I had to give it away. If you are not a fan of cloves stay away. If you are a fan of cloves you might really enjoy this beer.

I hate to do this because Ommegang is fairly local to me and I am a big fan of many of their beers...but this isn't one of those. Just plain boring, bitterness not balanced well and the high hop content doesn't really mesh well with the other flavors in the beer. I honestly took two sips and poured it out. When Ommegang focused on a few solid beers, they were untouchable, but now they are trying to be all things to all people and I think their products are suffering. I'm sure they don't want to brew Hennepin or Rare Vos all day every day, but the difference with those beers and this one is they are delicious

I enjoy the majority of Ommegangs brews, truly, however this one misses the mark for me.
I do not enjoy the sourness. The zest character I think is what I dislike. If I am in the mood for a Belgian Pale Ale, I go with St. Bernardus.
