Love ommegang brews, but not this one. It misses the mark. Leaves a nasty after taste that requires a cheesesteak and a miller lite to wash away.

Bought in a 4 pack
Poured into a Chimay goblet
A hazy gold/orange two finger white soapy head decent retention and lacing
S orange/lemon zest yeast spice booze
M medium thickness med/high carbonation perfect for a Belgian strong
T citrus floral spice hint of booze again perfectly balanced booze hints for a higher abv beer
O a great offering from two great breweries I lean towards the chouffe side normally and was not disappointed a great example of a Belgian strong. . Highly recommend

Pours a nice cloudy orange hay with yeast floating around. The two finger head quickly dissipates but shows no signs of disproportionation or other flaws. The aroma is clean and the spice is indistinguishable showing they are doing an excellent job. Has some aromas similar to weiss beers like bubblegum. Drinks very clean with light small bubbles and a well rounded yeast taste on the palate.

Nice orange color, towering thick white head, good lacing on the glass. Nose brings promise of orange rind and pith, coriander, spiciness, cut flowers and fruit. Taste doesn't follow through all the way. Citrus and fruitiness with some of the spiciness in the finish. Alcohol is present, but doesn't distract. Mouthfeel is light side of medium with tingly almost prickly levels of carbonation and a dry finish. A very good beer but I'm not convinced its worth the price tag.
