Bomber poured into a Stone IRS tulip.

Pour produces a small fluffy head which quickly dissipates. Appearance is a golden color, opaque. Nice lacing on the way down. Smells of sourdough, mango, green apples. Taste is excellent. Belgian yeast, pepper, pear, some citrus. Medium mouthful that fluffs up nicely with a little swish. Finishes dry. Overall, very enjoyable, will definitely have again.

Appearance: Golden color with a three finger head. Most impressive looking beer and what I expected given the style.
Smell: Cloves with Belgian yeast
Taste: Excellent this is a world class beer in my world.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation with a nice dry finish
Overall: As high a mark I can give a beer without tasting all the beers in the world. I paid $15 for a 750 ml champagne corked bottle and I would do it again. I highly recommend this, Ommegang is awesome and this is a great beer by them.
