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.

Bubbly, darker shade of gold topped with marshmallow head that floats around. Aroma of sharp tropics, citrus rind, zest, and grass. Tastes of pine, grass, lemon skin, sour pineapple, wildness, and a faint flavor of sea salt towards the finish. Finishes surprisingly clean. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Pours a hazy bright golden body with a white foamy head with good retention. Aromas are Belgian yeasty, a hint of bubblegum and tropical fruit, but largely subdued and uninteresting. Taste is surprisingly sour (I expected sweet, based on the nose) and yeasty, with hints of unripened pear and apples. Very dry. Overall not bad, especially if dry Belgians are your thing.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a monstrous creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is straw with some earthy yeast and a little spice.

The flavor is straw and doughy malts with stale grassy hops and a touch of fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, the first sips were just stale hops and earthy notes, but as I finished the bottle more sweet fruity notes came out that were nice.
