I have to rate this beer based on my preferences. While others may like this one, I found it to be horrendous. I couldn't even choke it down. The aroma was actually pretty good, but when I got the first sip onto my palate, it was defintely not for me. I actually picked up an overwhelming taste of cloves and I cannot stand cloves. It was such an overpowering taste that I had to give it away. If you are not a fan of cloves stay away. If you are a fan of cloves you might really enjoy this beer.

I enjoy the majority of Ommegangs brews, truly, however this one misses the mark for me.
I do not enjoy the sourness. The zest character I think is what I dislike. If I am in the mood for a Belgian Pale Ale, I go with St. Bernardus.
