4.38/5 rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle packaged on 04/08/14, best before 04/20/16. Poured into a Rastel tulip glass.
Appearance: Hazy gold-amber. Off white rocky persistent head. Islands and strands of lacing that would slowly slide down the glass.
Smell: Orange, citrus, yeast, hint of tropical fruits.
Taste: Sweet, but lots of subtle flavors to balance it. Candi sugar, fruity Belgian yeast esters, floral, herbal. The finish has some more sweetness and a German noble hop taste. Everything is subtle but blended together in such a way that it's hard to pull it all out. All the flavors merge together, but not in a mess, but rather in a complimentary way.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, slick, with just right carbonation. Coats the mouth and leaves with no stickiness on the teeth.
Overall / Drinkability: Refreshing, wonderfully crafted, and a great savoring/sipping beer. Alcohol well hidden and this beer is dangerously drinkable. I suspect if I had bought a 4 pack rather than a single I'd be cracking open another bottle and regretting it later. But the wonderful flavor of this beer is making me wish I had bought that 4 pack rather than the single, which tells me overall this a great and very drinkable beer. I am indeed wowed by the flavor of this beer.

4.24/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Gentle hand. I don't see a date on the bottle, but I do see a couple of gnomes in clogs, getting boozy.
A: Hazy, golden yellow body with 3 fingers of rocky, white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.
S: Slight musty, fruity Belgian yeast. Touches of lemon, apple, banana, pineapple. Faint candi sugar. Noble-type hops, lightly floral, grassy.
T: Spicy yeast up front with a touch of bitterness. Fruit and pale malt notes build. Finishes fairly dry with some lingering flowery hops in the aftertaste. Alcohol is present, but light for 9.5% ABV.
M: Fairly creamy, moderate carbonation with medium body.
O: Fine Belgian blonde. Easy drinker for the ABV. One of my favorite Ommegang regulars. I will say that I prefer it in the 750 mL format, as I do most Ommegang offerings.
