A - Slightly hazy, dull golden color. Four fingers of beautiful, white head with excellent retention. Lots of thick lacing. I'm not sure you could improve on this...
S - Faint earthiness combined with underwhelming citrus. Pepper, phenols, and lemon. The smell becomes much more pronounced as the beer warms up a bit.
T - The lemon and citrus fruits hit you first. Just the right amount of dryness, tart, and earthy flavor. Nice, pepper and phenol aftertaste
M - crisp, medium mouthfeel
O - Another stellar choice from Ommegang. After trying a biere-de-mars, I didn't think I would ever like anything this dry and earthy. But this is so complex, yet balanced. Very drinkable. I went through the 750 mL bottle way too fast.
