A-dark amber with a thin cream colored head
S-dark Belgian grains with a good hint of spicy peppercorn. Good strength. Smells awesome
T-comes in with a peppery taste of roasted Belgian grains and sugars. This is a really good one. The peppercorn flavor seems to stick to the tongue. The after-taste is of dark Belgian spices and grains.
M-medium to high carbonation with a semi-dry finish
O-this is actually just an awesome beer. I rarely get a well done variation of a Belgian style by an American brewery. It even tastes like it is from Belgium. Good tastes like this are rare at a decent price.

Enjoyed in a tulip glass
A: pours a hazy but beautifully bright medium amber color with an orangish hue, quite beautiful, pours with a ton of pure white head that lingers nicely and is light and fluffy, leaves a ton of lacing all over the glass, screams ommegang quality
S: im confident that i can identify ommegang beers in a blind smell test, there is just something about their yeast strain that comes through clearly in every one of their beers and this one is no exception
T: wow, has a great sweetness throughout, really great fruit notes im picking up possibly apples and something almost peachlike? really delicious, nice depth with the malt bill but not entirely heavy, drinks quite lightly, also what i would characterize as rye notes
M: carbonation up front, crisp on the palate, smooth finish, leaves a very slight dryness but nothing too crazy
O: really happy with this one, i think ommegang did a great job crafting a harvest time beer with solid notes but also that was highly drinkable, uniquely ommegang, awesome!
