Good Red Ale with a Belgian yeast presence. Poured from a corked and caged bottle into a pint glass, Reddish brown color with a big white head and thick lacing.

Good aroma of caramel malt and Belgian yeast.

Taste is very good. A slightly sweet Red Ale - caramel malt and a little hoppiness, with a big Belgian yeast presence.

Mouthfeel is crisp and rich with a little hops bitterness. Nice and smooth. Goes down very easily.

Another very good brew from Ommegang.

Pours a slightly cloudy deep ruddy brown with over an inch of coarse, fluffy head that is a very light tan color, just a shade off of white. Dissipates to a lacing.

Smells of fresh grassy malts, coriander, lemon zest, green apple, and pronounced brett character.

Tastes of grassy malts, lemon, coriander, bretty esters, some hints of banana and clove, and a very slight vegetal bitterness.

Full body with lightly tingling carbonation on the roof of the mouth. The carbonation is very fluffy as well. Hint of capsaicin burn, very subtle.

An interesting and enjoyable strong ale with some unique properties that set it apart. It's not fantastic, but very good and smooth.

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

Opens with a pop, cork really wanted out!

Pours a very effervescent orange with 4+ fingers of eggshell white head. Above average head retention & average lacing

S: Bubblegum

T: Juicyfruit, phenols, white pepper & some plum notes up front. Cloves, juicy fruit & dirty phenol notes & just a little bit of black currant & dryness as this warms & a kiss of boozeyness. Finishes with some green appleskins, pears, & faint lemony hops & juicy fruit & dryness & green bananas

MF: Light bodied, firm carbonation

I really wanted to like this, maybe I did a little, but nothing I would buy again. Was expecting more

A: poured into a Duvel tulip glass to a deep amber hue with a four finger off white head with excellent retention and lacing
S: smells of peppers and some spicy yeast aroma. slightly fruity as well
T: taste is chile peppers, spice, peppery yeast, spicey hop, a bit fruity and a touch of caramel sweetness. swallow is chile pepper, caramel, fruity esters, and more spice
M: this beer is medium in body with slightly prickly carbonation and a slightly drying finish
O: this beer is a bit of a style bender. It has a lot of peppery flavors but isn't classified as a chile beer and the beer has a lot of belgian yeast influence. Overall it's not bad and it tastes good.
