look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Duvel tulip from the bottle.

A: A medium-light golden hue with a translucent, not transparent, cloudy appearance. Nice lacing lasts a while and a 1/2 finger head stays forever.

S: White peppery notes are consumed in a yeasty, bready nose. There is some mild malty notes that round it out, and, as the name implies, there are hops. Mild floral hops.

T: Sweet malts, some floral, tropical hops notes. Spicy yeast, with peppery biting notes and smoothness all around. It meshes these quite well into a very pleasant experience.

M: medium bodied and smooth, velvety finish that languishes then bursts into a slightly metallic lemon-funky finish. Unique experience.

O: This is a nice example of the style. Not overbearing in any way and very smooth and drinkable.

a. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Yellow-golden in color - cloudy but can see through. Huge 2.5 - 3 finger head that lasts. Great lacing

s. Spices - coriander (ommegang calling card), yeast, other spices

t. HORRAY! Coriander is not overwhelming. Some grapefruit on the finish.

m. Excellent. Smooth and well carbonated.

o. Like this one a lot. Good crisp beer for a hot day. Would revisit - best Ommegang I have had.

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

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

$ 2.79/12 oz bottle at Lager Mill
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into Duvel snifter
Aroma of conifers
Head large (7 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to a broken 2 mm layer
Lacing good, irregular rings and islands of medium bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor of resinous hops, slightly bitter, dry; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, dry, lively carbonation

A pleasant pale ale, somewhat atypical because of the dryness. The aroma, appearance, and palate are all good, but the monoflavor becomes rapidly boring.
