12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

A: Clear golden color with a faint haze. Thick white head with major retention on the glass.

S: Mild spice. Possible peppery scent with mild overtone of sweetness. Slight grain aroma also.

T: Very crisp with a nice smooth flavor. Hard to break down because of its complexity. Ever so slightly spicy and very mild sweetness that lingers in the background. Aftertaste is like mild lemon and fruit tartness. Nothing overboard but very well ballanced.

This is excellent!!! I never understood why people spoke highly of Ommegang until I tried this style. It is a better version of the parent Duvel standard brew. This has lower alchohol phenol scent and flavor with a better taste. Best Ommegang I've had.

pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a big white head that holds fairly well with a light to medium lace. smells great, with herbs and spice and pepper and clove. very peppery taste, with lots of spice and clove. lots of crisp carbonation and medium mouthfeel. slightly sweet and dry also. just a great taste can't wait to get more.
