My choice for the Super Bowl. Pours a hazy straw gold color into my Augustijn goblet from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle.. Good size delicate bubbly white head with better than average head retention. A little lacing on the glass.
Great Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is Belgian yeast, a little lemon zest, and some black pepper. Very tasty and light for a beer with fairly high abv.
Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. Somewhat tart and spicy as well. Not much indication of the high abv. Very inviting.
An outstanding Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

This is a quality strong ale. My staple is Ommegang's Hennepin, which sets the bar high for Saisons along with Dupont, but when i want something stronger this is where I land. If you're a fan of Victory's Golden Monkey, also a very good beer, you'll like this...smoother than GM.

Best by 1/2015. 12oz bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a hazy golden yellow that glows; small white head that fades and leaves nice retention and solid lacing. The aromas are very nice. Lots of fresh pear and green apple. Some banana too. The yeast makes its mark as well. There's also some coconut in the mix as well. Some pineapple. It's slightly tropical. Some breadiness. All of that translates over to the flavor department. Tastes very good. Lots of fruit. More pear juice and apple skin. Hops are present. There's an earthy bitterness to this one. Very clean and crisp flavors. Mouthfeel is great. It's full-bodied with fizzy active carbonation. Very sharp and smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed. It's extremely refreshing and dangerously drinkable.
This is a great beer from Ommegang. It's on par with everything they do. Recommended.
