A very nice offering from Ommegang. It's somewhat of a crossover Belgian/Amber - something I've been dying to try from a brewery like this. Ommegang showcases some excellent fruits and spices with just the right amount of Belgian yeast. It's a bit tart and finishes dry. The reddish orange hue is also quite nice. The uniqueness of this beer takes it to another level, for me. Very nice.

Poured into a pint glass, decanting properly so as not to disturb the yeast sediment. Pours slightly hazy copper with a tall, soapy eggshell colored head. The head dissipates slowly. There are lots of noticeable tiny bubbles in this beer. The Belgian yeast aromas hit the nose first, delivering fruity notes of banana and apple. I can pick up some biscuit aromas from the malt. There's also a touch of citrus. The flavors follow the profile of a typical Belgian amber. The yeast brings the fruit flavor profiles from the nose like that banana, apple, and citrus. There's some mild spiciness. The malt provides a nice backbone for this beer without being too heavy. The shot of beer left at the bottom of the bottle really had some nice Belgian yeast flavor. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is clean. The drinkability is very high. This is a very good beer.
