This was my first time trying this beer and like many, I am a big fan of Brewery Ommegang so I had high expectations and I must say, I was not met with disappointment.

The beer was poured into a libbey craft pub glass and the first thing I noticed was the amazingly vibrant color. I've had many amber ales in the past but this one was one of the brightest oranges I have ever seen. The head was very thick and lacing was abundant. I could not wait to experience it.

The smell of the beer reminded me of citrus rinds, definitely strong hints of orange and maybe grapefruit. The aroma was very sweet and welcoming. I regret that I did not try this beer during the summer as it would have been the perfect summer drink.

The beer is sweet, but not too sweet, and finishes off with a nice taste of fruit.

The body is perfect, it is not too thick or thin. The drinkability proves very high, I could definitely have one or two more of these.

Overall this beer perfects what it sets out to do. It is one of the best, if not the best, amber ales I have ever tried. Ommegang continues their legacy.
