12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a two finger head that has reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the side of the glass. A hazy golden straw yello with good signs of carbonation coming up through the center of the glass.
Smell: Belgian candy sweetness, apples, pears, bready and sweet malts, yeasty esters, vanilla, spiciness, and music to my smelling senses.
Taste: All the aromas for the most part can be tasted in the si
Mouthfeel: medium to high carbonation, smooth, somewhat dry, light bodied, and easy to drink.
Overall: I have had this plenty of times before and it is one of my go to beers for this style. You can't go wrong with this beer and very happy now that I have enjoyed another one.

This may be Ommegang's best, and I think it's so close to Duvel and great Trappists that I'd love to conduct a blind tasting later this summer. Outstanding. Must try.
Since Duvel is one of my favorite beers, this is in my top 30 for sure.
A - Pours a murky, dusty straw gold color with a 1 inch white head. Not the head of lasting and lacing of Duvel.
S - Also a Meditation beer as good as wine or champagne, and even more energetic. . Lemon, champagne, with spices, pepper, fruit, apple, and sweet malt. Grassy, very long finish, very appetizing. A little more yeast stink than Duvel (a Saison).
T - All of the notes in the aroma and MORE SO... RISING on the tongue, with sweet malts, a little bitterness, spices. Pepper & champagne.
A lot going on. Also like Duvel, a clean long, long, cleansing finish, that makes you want another kiss, I mean sip.
M - pinpoint carbonation. Dry and crisp like champagne. A bit chaulky in a good way.
D - Must try.
As Alstrom wrote "Close to champagne but so much more. At a dinner party see if people prefer over wine". I do!
