New Jersey

4.68/5  rDev +13%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a chalice, 2010 bottling (so a fresh specimen). This was the first craft beer I truly loved (Hennepin was my introduction), and I don't know how I've not reviewed it yet. No time like the present.

It's a gorgeous beer. Thick, pale, fluffy head (suitable for drawing smiley faces in) that eventually simmers down. Deep black-cherry red coloring (no wonder because of the cherry lambic and strong cherry scents and flavors that saturate the beer) that gets a bit lighter towards the bottom of my chalice. The boyfriend (resident beer nerd to my fledgling one) says young Ommegang beers have a distinctive taste, but I haven't had enough to tell. As it stands, the alcohol comes through most tellingly in its scent, though it isn't overpowering or offputting.

Tastewise, this is complex and nigh quaffable. I'm impressed by the cherry flavor coming through so strongly without it being cloying or saccharine, but the great yeasty mouthfeel and bitterness balance makes it so, so enjoyable.
