Thank some one for Ommegang. This brewery is a tremendous addition to the American craft brewery scene. Thanks to Ommegang for this offering.
Pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a rapidly diminishing head. Very aromatic--I like that in a beer. Smells malty, like a wonderful bakery, and the floral aromatics of Belgian yeast. Ommegang is heavy, thick and chewy (in a positive way). Initial taste is sweet with hints of melon and raison. Let me venture out on a limb and say the aftertaste presents a pleasant sourness. I think it is much more bright in flavor than Chimay red label, but definitely not overwhelming. It is incredibly easy to drink, but much more importantly, to enjoy with good music and food.
Ommegang is one of the great US interpretations of a great Belgian style ale. A wonderful beer.

My dad passed away a couple of years ago. He was a very enthusiastic fellow about many things, one of which was fruitcake (yeah, I know). In the fruitcake family, at least the way he made it, was pecan whiskey cake. Even people who hate fruitcake loved his pecan whiskey cake. This beer reminds me of that cake - dark, dried fruity, accompanied by the pleasant presence of alcohol, etc.. Whenever I drink this beer, I think of my dad and his enthusiasm for making unusual desserts.

Deep brown with amber highlights and a slightly frothy ivory head.
Aroma is figgy, with notes of dates. Fairly sweet and bready, with candi sugar.
Fairly raisiny flavor, with light alcohol and a hint of burnt sugar, with a finish of menthol and light dryness. Slight sharp cherry notes are evident. Yeast character is somewhat spicy.
Body is full, with modest carbonation and noted alcohol heat.
Very raisin dominant flavor, with light sweetness and more bready notes. The finish is fairly dry. Alcohol is noticeable. Honestly, I expected more complexity.
Serving type: on-tap
