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.

Very disappointed with this brew. Taste and aroma were akin to dish soap laced with Pine-Sol. I would sometime like to try this one as a draught, just to compare bottle and tap. Perhaps the 12oz bottle I I sampled was off. I am a huge fan of hops, but just seems that something went wrong with this one. Would be willing to try again, but at this point, I would hardly recommend this beer.
