Dark amber color with one finger head that lasts throughout the drinking process. Solid lacing. This is a beautiful looking beer. A bit yeasty to the nose with a hint of fruit. Tastes great. I mean outstanding. The balance is almost perfect. It goes down smooth and ends with a fruity, hoppy finish. The aftertaste leaves something to be desired but the initial flavor is exceptional. Overall, this is an awesome beer. I would recommend this to a friend in a heartbeat.

poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet. Best by 1/23/14.

Beautiful looking beer, golden slightly hazy body with 2 finger creamy head, eventually dissipating to 1/2 finger. Good lacing. Nice carbonation, a slow steady stream of bubbles.

A sort of sweetness on the nose, with a little fruit.

Nice tasting beer. Nice and lively due to the carbonation. I confess to not having much undrstanding of the nuances of tastes in Belgians, but this is very enjoyable.

As mentioned, tingling on the mouth.

Overall, a pretty good beer. Can see having this again on occasion.

A beautiful hazy amber that's darker at the top.

Smells like many of the other Ommegang beers, which is a wonderful thing.

Tastes amazing.

It lingers in the mouth and tingles in the throat and nose. Stays in your mouth for quite a while after the drink.

Overall, it's goddamned amazing.
