4.28/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look - poured into a sniffer with slight head. Has a golden pretty transparent and shows slight carbonation. Leaves good lacing.
Smell - good Belgium malt smell and earthy slight citrus smell.
Taste - good malt to hop balance but of course with a great hop taste. Taste a lot like the smell.
Feel - slight creamy taste, medium carbonation, clean taste.
Overall - great Belgium pale ale, I'd have it again.

Serving: Bottle
Served: 18 October 2014

Appearance: Had this one from the bottle at a party, but the bottle label is pretty great.

Smell: As soon as I cracked the cap I got a huge whiff of hops, and I knew this beer was going to be good.

Taste: Big clean hoppiness with a decent maltiness as well. You could tell this was a dry-hopped pale ale rather than anything else, since the hops were really present and not interfered with massive maltiness from other beer styles (like a DIPA, for example). Good beer all around, and one I really enjoyed.

Feel: Medium body with good carbonation.

Overall: Not sure why the rating on this one is only 3.75, as this is a really solid dry hopped pale ale. I would get this again and would recommend it.

Good hoppiness with strong Belgian yeast finish. I tend towards IPAS and really enjoyed this beer at first. Halfway through the bottle and the hops went away. Style is great but not my preference.

12oz bottle into a tall pint glass.

Orange yellow body with decent side white head. Carbonation and lacing pretty nice.

Getting a clean hop aroma on the nose, mostly of a floral type. No belgian yeastiness.

Taste was as you would expect from the nose. Not overpowerinf hops, very subtle. Some sweet maltness in the background.

Mouth was around medium, a tad dry on the finish.

Overall, a fairly enjoyable drink, but likely wont look for this one first on the racks of Ommegang.
