look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A - Pours a beautiful ruby brown into a Chimay chalice. A nice foamy head bubbles up and retains throughout, supported by a strong geyser of carbonation streaming up the center of the glass. The beer is mostly clear, with a bit of haze. No lacing.
S - Mild dark fruit sweetness. Little bit of yeast. Hard for me to explain this one.
T - Follows the nose. However, where I expected a darker, damper flavor, I got a real vibrant, almost tart experience. The dark fruit is there, as are some yeasty notes. Really good.
M - Perfect. Soft with supporting carbonation. Slightly dry and a slight tingle on the tongue. Medium bodied and sumptuous.
O - This is the best beer I've had in quite some time. This is also one of the more expensive bottles I've purchased in a while, and I'm strongly considering trying to find a way to get some volume at a lower price. Highly recommend.

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.
