02/23/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. After a logistical mix up, I'm finally in front of a glass of his fine, fine brew. A long time fan of both Ommegang & Duval brands this collaboration doesn't disappoint. Bready aromas give way to slight bite that could be alcohol & lemon or vice-verse. It is so subtle it's hard to tell. Another masterful brew but if you don't appreciate a dry finish this might not be for you. Me? I'm a fan.

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is hazy gold color with bleached white minimal head after even a fairly aggressive pour.
Aroma is mild with bready yeast, some sweet malt and some spicy and earthy hops.
First sip reveals an average to light body with fine rolling carbonation.
Flavor is similar to the nose with some caramel malt and a little musty funk mixed in for fun.
The hops give the same earthy and spicy notes as he nose advertised, I dont get any booze which is nice since it is a bigger beer.

Very easy to drink and worth trying as it is interesting and fairly complex without being messy.
