A: poured from a 750 corked and caged bottle into a tulip. Two fingers of head. Moderate lacing that held the glass all the way down. Copper in color and cloudy/murky. Bubbles raising to the top of the glass, champagne like.

S: Didn't pick up a whole lot, white pepper, and citrus. Pleasant on the nose.

T: Bitter hops up front that slowly changed to sour apple and a honey sweet finish. White pepper is in the mix as well with a lingering peppery sweet after taste. Delightful. There is a lot going on from the second it hit my lips until I finished swallowing it. Wow!

M: A lot of carbonation, bubbly and pleasant. Very crisp and refreshing. Peppery burn. I love it!

O: This is my second go around with Ommegang first time wasn't great (abbey ale), but they hit a home run with this one! From start to finish I loved everything about this beer. I probably would rate higher if it were 95 degrees in July instead of 2 degrees in February. Great hot summer ale. I highly recommend!
