Omigod Ommegang! This reminds me of the Three Philosophers but with an elevated alcohol content and spice feelers I soon forget about that unfortunate wine-beer and direct myself towards the spiritual. Of ascending church steeples and descending bodies in genuflecting waves going up-down up-down. Some bedraggled saint has his face pressed against the stain glass crying knowing that the earth will never suffer as it has sewn. And so being a lit fool is said to be the worst way to review a beer but I disagree. As one should write as close to unconsciousness as is possible to write in a dream-state so should he think about spirits. Ghosts and yeasty succulence flitter away. So comes bliss.

Cloudy orange pour with a nice foamy white one-finger head. Aroma is of mild sour fruit. Taste is mildly sour upfront backed by yeast, wood and musty spice flavors. As the beer warms a really nice tart citrus flavor emerges that carries through to the finish.
