Not sure if I got a bad bottle. Pours a nice slightly hazy copper with a lasting, clingy cream-colored head. Unfortunately, that's about the only thing to like. Lemon and pepper on the nose, this smells like something I don't want to taste. Speaking of which, this doesn't taste good. Slightly more malt presence, but still pronounced sour and acidic, it tastes like heartburn. Finish is reasonably clean.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque burnt gold with a white one finger head that held on. Thick-as-hell lacing.

S: Fruity esters featuring bananas and lemons with a pinch of clove. Bready malts. Belgian Yeast.

T: Follows nose with a smooth rush of Belgian funk, bready malts and bananas.

M: Medium with carbonation to kill for. It literally fizzes on the tongue.

O: A great BPA from those awesome folks in New York. You can't go wrong with Ommegang.
