750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark honey amber color. Forms about 3 fingers of a firm thick head with great retention. (4.75)

S: Caramel malts, bready. Citric hints, orange zest. Floral hops, syrupy, and peppery hints. (4.75)

T: A bit spicy, sweet. Citrusy, follows the nose on the orange and light hints of lemon. Nutty, moderately bitter. Dry and yeasty in the end. (4.5)

M: Medium-bodied, very rich and refreshing. Perfect carbonation, somewhat creamy. (4.5)

O: I would drink this over Three Philosophers or Tripel Perfection any day, absolutely love this brew. Very rich and refreshing. (4.75)

Man this is a pretty brew! A gentle pour yielded a massive foamy head sitting on a copper body. My mouth is already watering. The nose is mostly malts with a little of the belgian yeast. The taste is lots of malt and belgian yeast with a little hop buttering. Awesome. Great carbonation. Tiny bubbles streaming from the center like champagne. I love Ommegang brews and this doesn't disappoint.
