Served on tap in a snifter
Appearance –Pours a beautiful medium orange- amber color with a light haze and a one half finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to give a nice level of lacing
Smell – The smell is heaviest of yeast and strong notes of a lemon citrus. Mixed with these are some lighter sweet notes of orange and a candied sugar smell.
Taste – The beer starts with some of the sweeter flavors depicted in the nose along with a bready base. The sweetness is largely of a orange taste, but there are hints of candied sugar in there as well. As the taste advances however some of the sweetness fades. Some of the lemon citrus flavors as well as hints of the yeast hit the tongue. The light lemon hop and lemongrass flavor bitter the beer slightly. The orange sweetness is almost completely gone more toward the end, but the candied sugar sweetness gets stronger. At the very end of the taste there is a slight alcohol burn which in overall leaves a rather satisfyingly light warming, sweet, and somewhat sour candy flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just above average in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that runs the middle of the road. Very appropriate for the style and quite refreshing due to the carbonation, but with the creaminess the taste still really still sinks into the tongue.
Overall – This is a fantastic and wonderful brew. It has a wonderful taste and feel. Well done!!!

Pours a deep golden yellow with a nice dirty white head. Aroma and flavor is all about the yeasts; delicately spicey, bready, subtle on the fruitiness, and a little peppery. It was great. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, creamy, active with slight prickliness. Overall, a fantastic brew and one of the best beers I have had yet from Ommegang.

Growler filled at Green Growler Grocery in Croton-on-Hudson, NY
Pours clouded, dull apricot. Under a looser off white head, that leaves a nice thicker collar, and ample fine bits and small blobs of lacing.
Fresh and ripe tropical fruit nose.
More fruity goodness, I get some melon, lime, and grapefruit. Then biting hops, a load of pepper, and more lime and grapefruit as we head to the tasty finish.
Highly enjoyable offering from Ommegang.
