A: slight haze; gold in color; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a wispy cap; very nice lacing;

S: yeast, spice/herbal - clove?; lemon zest; a hint of pine;

T: lemon up front; a little pine in the middle; back to tart lemon at the finish; mild bitterness in the aftertaste;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; very dry finish;

O: although I didn't particularly like the combination, the aroma is quite complex; nice refreshing flavor; great feel;

Tasted in a Rastal Teku glass from a 12 oz bottle on December 11, 2015. Look is hazy deep orange with a thick head and lingering lacing. Smell is grapefruit, citrus, pine, yeast and malt notes. Taste is orange, grapefruit, yeast and dry hop favors. Feel is medium in body with slightly bitter and dry finish.

Ommegang never seems to disappoint. This is yet another winner.

It opens overflowing with foam. I had warmed it just a tad and that may have disturbed the residents. It's a lovely yellow with nice head. The aroma is a strong hops and yeast mix. Very nice.

The taste is dry and bitter for sure, but with loads of yeast flavor in there too, keeping it from being one of those one dimensional, boring ales. This one works.

Highly recommended for a Belgian pale that is nicely over the top and American.
