Had at Hops & Vines Asheville. Poured into a Wicked Weed snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a semi-hazy medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains very well before slowly dropping to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Thick, fluffy resilient lacing.

S- Very fruity nose with a nice helping of rich Belgian yeast and pleasant hop aroma on the back end. Actually quite awesome.

T- Flavor has that yeasty twang to it that I like so much and the moderate hop bitterness does a great job complementing it. Good hop burps.

M- Tangy with a slightly milky texture. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- This offering by Ommegang stands out as one of their best IMO. It nails that Belgian richness of flavor and aroma while being accentuated by the increase in hops. Great stuff.

Another really nice, well-balanced beer from Ommegang. This is a pretty "Belgian" beer and is most certainly worth your time. Hop heads and Euro-dorks alike. Pretty dusty straw color with good head. Dry and hoppy this is a creamy easy drinker with a dry finish. On the whole there is a very herbal hop flavor but the main characteristic this beer has is "even-keeledness".

Another spectacular looking beer from Ommegang. Giant chunky pile of white foam atop a lovely light orange colored beer. A big bubbly layer remains once the bulk of the head subsides. Sticky patches all around the glass.... Aroma is loaded with juicy grapefruit, lemon-lime, floral, banana pudding, and a soft dusting of coriander spice. Mouthwateringly forward fruit. Taste is very Belgian IPA. Sweet white bread grains, lemon, grapefruit rind, touch of passionfruit, creamy banana, zesty spice, and hop bitterness mingled with festive carbonation. Dry, brisk, very lightly resinous, and still creamy smooth. Overall a very nice Ommegang Belgian spliced with an IPA. Fruity, perky, warm, and welcoming with a nice amount of (far from overwhelming) bitterness. Good stuff.

Slightly hazy solid gold color with the standard huge, lumpy Ommegang head that billows up over the rim. Aroma is a blend of hops and yeast for the most part...fruity grapefruit, lime, and peach, herbs, grass, and flowers over a pastry-like sweetness. Crisp, dry hoppy Belgian flavor. Lemon, herbs, peppery yeast, floral hops, citrus rind, light cracker-like grain. Dry, refreshing, and easy to drink. Tasty! Should probably be in the Belgian IPA category if we're going to recognize that as a style.
