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!
