Poured into a trappist glass, a hazy golden yellow with a large long lasting white fluffy head. Aroma is of ripe fruit, Belgian yeast, light floral notes. Taste is of ripe fruit, pears, some mild spiced fruity notes, a bit of sweet alcohol, yeast. Palate is crisp medium body with lively carbonation which sits well on the palate. The finish is ripe fruit of pears, mild spice fruit notes, Belgian yeast, has a slight dry sweet alcohol ending with mild bitterness. Overall a very good, flavorful and pleasant drinking brew.

Pours a bright hazy golden straw color with a fluffy pure white head that settles into a solid cap leaving some lacing on the glass. Some yeast floaters.

The aroma is of clove and farmhouse, hay and tart lemon. Hints of bubblegum. Nice bright aroma.

The taste is of a light pils malt base. The yeast provides a light clove and heavy hay and farmhouse flavor. Nice tart lemon. Light peppery hop in the finish. Spot on BPA flavors. Lacks a little depth.

The feel is moderate with very fizzy carbonation. The beer drinks very crisp as the malt is fairly light and the beer finishes dry. Drinks quite well despite the 6.8% ABV.

A well made BPA. This stays away from heavy so it drinks quite well. My only complaint is that Ommegang seems to have a bunch of BPA's and they all kind of taste the same.
