Had a couple bottles of this the other night at the bar because it looked adventurous and fall like.
It poured dark with heavy lacing that was slow to settle. The smell screamed of spiced bread fresh out of a bakery. The taste was so discrete with the Belgium hops that it allowed the beer to embellish its true characteristics. Had many spices i couldn't distinguish combining with a very rich mouthfeel.
Overall, I wasn't impressed.

Cool new lables and cool new brews from Ommegang.Poured into my Ommegang chalice a brilliant a deep orange infused lighter amber with a spot on one finger white crown that left multiple chunks of lace behind as it settles into a soapy-like mass atop.Toasted grain notes in the nose along with light phenols and a hint of pepper,light aromas but decnet enough.The toasted grain comes out again on the palate with a little phenolic yeastiness and a faint shot of spice from the rye.I think this is a good alternative to the pumpkin and Oktoberfest fall beers out there,it's not in your face with big flavors but a smooth easy drinking table beer.I could drink alot of this.

This was a very pretty beer. In a pint glass it was a hazy amber color that was beautifully carbonated. There was a thick fluffy white head with a good deal of lace.
Kind of a fresh, outdoors aroma. Grainy and sweet.
The grainy aroma turned out to be rye and oatmeal. Spicy. A bit of grassy hops.
Very smooth and drinkable.
I hope this stays on tap for a while at Pigs Fly.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with a monstrous rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is subdued - grainy malts and a little fruit with some floral perfumey hops.
The flavor is sweet grainy malts, a little fruit and a little rye with a medium bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, it's a decent amber but a bit uninteresting and pricey at $11 per 4 pack.

Growler filled at DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY ($6.99 for a 32 ounce pour)
Pours lightly hazed, Starts with a large off white head, going to a thicker film and leaves better the ample high fine webs of lacing.
Sniff sniff sniff reveals just a whiff of mild sweet malts.
Flavorful and smooth amber, nice layers of malts. caramel, bread, slight rye presence. Easy drinking and enjoyable.
Fine beer to add to a marinade. Some went right into my jerk pork tenderloin bath.
Not the most sexy style of brew but this is a well crafted and quality new offering from Omme.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass
Appearance: two inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, clear
Smell: apricot, hay, and funk
Taste: big apricot, some tropical fruit, honey, and funkiness
Mouthfeel: moderate body, funky and slightly sweet, high carbonation
Overall: This to me tastes like an above average to average slightly sweet biere de garde. Not much stands out to me about this. Yes it is good and I would not turn it down, however I will not rush out to get another either.

On tap at the Common Table.
The beer pours a golden color with a white head. I get a lot of grain notes in the aroma, with a hint of yeast and some grass. The flavor is fairly dry with a lot of the husky grain notes. I also get some grass and earth from the hops as well as some spices and some yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.
Appearance: Dense orange with huge, sticky off-white head.
Smell: Banana, sweet fruits, clove, some spice. Extremely Belgian.
Taste: Malt and yeast dominated, with banana, ripe dark fruits, caramel, and clove. There is some nice, light spice notes on the finish from the rye and the hops.
Feel: Seems full bodied yet light, creamy yet effervescent, sweet yet dry. This is the type of mouthfeel that only great Belgian beers can pull off.
Overall: This an exceptionally well crafted beer that is very suitable for the Fall season. I really should give this an even higher score, but it doesn't do enough to truly grab my attention.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.
Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy copper golden orange with lots of bubbles. Huge six finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A fairly complex spicy and malty aroma. Spicy and funky yeast up front with some clove and pepper. Big hints of rye along with fruity esters including orange, lemon, and pear. Bready wheat grains and malts with hints of biscuit, caramel, and toffee. Also some hints of oats and banana. Some moderate earthy and grassy hops. A pretty funky and nice smell.
Taste: Like it smells, a nice and complex mix of malts and spices. Lots of yeast upfront with a funky Belgian like kick. Some white pepper and clove. Bready malts and wheat with notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, and oat. Taste of fruits including orange, lemon, banana, and pear. Also a solid hop presence with some earthy hops and grass. A complex and well balanced taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Creamy and somewhat chewy. Very smooth.
Overall: A pretty interesting and solid tasting beer. A nice mix of malts, spices, and hops. Has some bite to it while still being very smooth.
