Tried this one on BA's recommends for an American version of a Belgian Abbey-style ale. Poured into a 16 oz. pint glass.
A: Pours a clean pale nutty red into the glass with little foam and little to no lacing.
S: Smells of burnt sugar hops, horse blanket and hay.
T: Bigger hops bitters than I was expecting. Notes of bubblegum and s'mores in the middle with a very dry citrus rind bitter finish.
M: Not over carbonated. Full bodied and bitter for a Belgian.
D: Better than average but not my favorite.

Had this beer in a corked bottle. 7/23/14.
Pours a really nice dark maroon color that won't give away the way it tastes right away. Head dissipates in a nice frothy fashion.
The nose is spicy and malty, you can definitely trace it back to the licorice, coriander, orange peel, and yeast.
The taste consists of sweet malt then flavors of slight licorice, coriander, orange peel, spice, and yeast. The more you sip, the better it gets as your mouth gets used to the very slight metallic plum taste. Blends together perfectly.
Medium bodied, even though the look doesn't give that away, nice dry finish. Alcohol is hidden very well.
This beer is a very good example of the style, first Ommegang brew I've ever had. Very refreshing mouthfeel and a lot of underlying fruit characteristics that point to fig/plum and licorice. The orange peel and coriander hints balance it quite nicely.
Believe it or not this brew pairs perfectly with French Toast flavored Goldfish. Then again, that could just be the end of the beer getting to me.
