So very refreshing. The hint of cherry really comes out and makes this beer just a bit nicer. No question about its Belguim style, the funkiness of the yeast/hop combination separates this from other USA beers.

I enjoy Ommegang, but I think I like visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame even better.

This was one of my favorite Christmas gifts - I love the name, the packaging, and I've been very interested in trying an Ommegang beer for a long time.This definitely fits the BA mantra of "drink better, drink less." I really like the way this one looks and smells. The aroma gives you no illusions - it says "I am a yeasty, fruity, boozy beast of a beer". There is plenty of raisin and black cherry in both the nose and the taste. The finish is somewhat tart, which is a bit unexpected. There is a lovely alcohol burn after the third or fourth swallow, in the most pleasant way possible. One bottle of this is plenty for tonight.

Very well rounded beer. One of my favorites. Could be a easy daily drinker.

This is generally not my my favorite style of beer. (A little darker and sweeter than I would usually drink). But this was very good, smooth, and tasty. Be careful...I imagine the high ABV could sneak up on you. :-)

APPEARANCE - Dark, opaque, 3-finger head that dissipates, red, amber, foamy. OK lacing.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, malts, yeast, fruit, pine, raisin.

TASTE - Hops, malts, sweet, nutty, pine, fruit, brown sugar, raisin, apple.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Good carbonation, bubbly, light, effervescent, crisp, refreshing.

VALUE - $10.99 for an 25 oz. bottle - good buy.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Only 2% cherry. Not as fruity as I expected. It's really just a hint of cherry.
