Had on tap at The Office Lounge in Toms River, NJ.
Appearance: A nice amber color with almost no head most likely due to the bartender's pour. A shame, since having some head seems to enhance this brew quite a bit
Smell: Fruity, with generous helpings of plum, anise, citrus, and a little spice.
Taste: Fruity, plum, anise, citrus, and a bit more subtle spice. Very well balanced flavors.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, but relatively smooth, medium thickness
Overall: This is a beer I quite enjoy from Brewery Ommegang. I often overlook it, but I was happy to see such a good beer on tap next to a wide variety of more common beers (BMC, Guinness, etc). Went very well with my roasted half duckling.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Medium bright, honey dark gold in hue. Two finger head on pour that subsides very slowly.

T - Lemony, floral, and crisp, a unique amber that is complex yet light and refreshing.
M - Silky and full with a very crisp and refreshing finish.

3.51/5 rDev -13.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a light honey with a ridiculously big head. Took several minutes to go down enough to enjoy it.
S - Very light aroma. Lots of caramel and a slight floralness to it
T - Mild flavor. Hints of caramel, lemon, and rose. Seems to alternate between bitter and sweet and has a strong yeastiness on the finish
M - Medium body. Quite smooth while bubbly in the mooth.
O - A nice amber that is somewhat unique. The floral aromas and flavor set it apart from the rest.
