I absolutely love the deep rich amber hue of this ale. A touch cloudy, almost unfiltered in a way, it's somewhat iridescent. The head was thin, highly carbonated and fleeting.

The scent holds sweet apricot, raisin, plum, prune, date and fermented dried fruit. Very hearty in the nose it is strong and appealing.

The taste holds true to form with rich raisin at the front, sweet date, apricot and prune towards the middle; ending in a grape must/wine like quality at the end. The feel is full and substantial yet smooth.

Ommegang continues to impress me every time I try one of their ales and this is yet another fabulous addition.
