3.78/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow into my pint glass. Giant head that is slow to dissipate, a variety of bubbles and ends up with thick beautiful lacing. Floral scent, but noticeable maltiness to it as well. Taste is of a lighter floral hop with a respectable substance to it, balanced with just a bit of malt. There is a certain spiceness to it too, both in flavor and mouthfeel which makes this a unique brew. Mouthfeel is like that of a carbonated mineral water - heavier and spicier though. Aftertaste is more yeasty with a hit of floral hops but quickly fades and doesn't continue to develop. Overall recommended.

4.15/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Another great, strong selection from Ommegang. This one is very unique and flavorful and quite surprising. Poured from a bottle into an English pub glass.

A: A thick, cloudy opaque gold with hints of brown in the depth of the beer. A lovely two inch head that stays on the top of the beer, with a large amount of lacing.

S: Crisp and fresh and full of hops, loaded with citrus tones of grapefruit, lemon and lime and a rosey nose. A very fresh and complex aroma - this beer's best feature.

T: First impression is a very hoppy beer with a load of fresh flavor backed up by a nice light toasted malt body and slightly above average sweetness. Lots of citrus overtones. Some peppery finish and a nice hoppy bitterness at the end. Very nice beer, hoppy and heavy on the ABV but easy to drink.

M: Smooth and crisp, lots of carbonation and very breezy despite its somewhat high O.G.

O: A very good beer; my third enjoyable beer from Ommegang. This beer is a wonderful example of how an ale can be full of big hop flavors. Lots of well balanced citrus and sweetness and a nice light toasted malt feel back this one up. A beautiful, easy to drink beer with no glaring faults.

This pours a gold straw with a thick cap of foam.

I get an estery defined grassiness along with some drying straw aroma.

It's hoppy and floral with a peppery kick to it.

Great effervescence gives this a light touch on the palate and a crisp finish.

I found it real enjoyable.
