Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of Belgian yeast, fruit, some spices, caramelized malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste is decently balanced with a good Belgian yeast backbone, mildly sweet flavors of caramel & fruit and a mild hops presence. The malt character is hearty. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a nice Belgian-style beer with a lot of flavor and substance that doesn't try to overpower you.

A pretty nice stab at the Belgian style ale from the people at Ommegang. This corked 750ml bottle pours a nice orange bronze color with a touch of haze, but fairly translucent. A nice rocky head rests on top of the beer. Smell is a nice big boquet of mellow fruit scencts, floral hops, and mellow ripe malts. A bit biscuity and buttery as well. Taste is much the same, a nice mellow a sweet taste, with hints of hops and fruits and malts all coming at different times, and a tad yeasty. Very smooth mouthfeel and this is definately and easy beer to put down.
