The girlfriend wouldn't let me watch the Season 3 premier without drinking this beer at the same time... so here we are. 750ml corked and caged bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

Pours a gigantic, frothy 4 finger white head with excellent retention. Beer is a clear pale goldenrod revealing ample carbonation. Thick, stringy lace with excellent stick. A great looking beer.

Nose is big Belgian yeast flavors. Clove, coriander, flour, cane sugar and honey. Sweet and appetizing. A touch soapy. Pretty typical for the brewery and the style.

Opens Belgian yeast sweetness. Coriander and clove upfront. Cane sugar sweetness forms a big malt backbone. A slightly seedy tartness towards the middle and end. Finishes yeasty and sweet with a lingering, sweet aftertaste. Decent.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and bubbly in the mouth and goes down aggressive and spritzy. Finishes messy with a light, lingering aftertaste. Real drinkable. I like it.

This beer is like its namesake series. Very solid all-around but there's no real excitement, no real action. Very drinkable and I'd definitely have it again but its certainly no standout.

Had on tap at New World Tavern Plymouth--served into a tulip glass

Appearance: high carbonation, bright yellow-gold in color, 3/4 inch head, clear

Smell: pineapple, hay, and tropical fruit

Taste: pineapple, hay, tropical sweet fruit juice, sugar, and citrus hops at the end

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate-high carbonation, bitter with sweetness in the middle

Overall: A very enjoyable BPA. It does have the distinct Ommegang taste to it. I could do several glasses of this and would look for it if I was looking for a beer in this style.

Pours a clear yellowish golden with a nice thick white head. Aroma is full of belgian yeast and spicey, slight cracker comes out as it warms up. Flavor starts off lighter with some belgian yeast and crackers at the get go but mid stream things kick and the yeast really start to strut its stuff with some slight fruitiness and spices and a big, dry peppery and hoppy finish offering some moderate bitterness. A crisp, active thinner mouthfeel. Overall, Ommegang with a very nice beer here, which is to be expected. Would happily drink again.

It's an Ommegang beer, so it's going to be good. From a 750 ml bottle, on to the beer:

Beauty sits in the glass. That velvetey, cream head sits over an inch thick and retains itself very well. The color glows yellowish orange with a godlen hue and visible carbonation bubbles riding alongside the glass. I like the nose; delicate, fruity, and spicy. It has a spiced lemon note, lemon meringue, fresh dough, a dash of nutmeg.

This is a dry and effervescent blonde ale. It starts off with a dry bready note with a yeastiness which delivers a kiss of clove. Soft banana and peppery lemon hit afterwards. It dries up in the aftertaste with a skittle of bitterness and apricot skins. Its mouthfeel is Belgian in character, being light yet uplifting with its well placed lively carbonation.

Respectful blonde ale, no matter what the occasion or celebration. Ommegang didn't try to do too much and it payed off.
