  • Pours cloudy with an amber brown color and a lively two finger tan colored head. Good retention on the head. Thick lacing sheets down the sides of the glass.

    The aroma is rich and sweet with prunes, raisins, honey, Belgium yeast and hints of spice.

    The taste follows the aroma with a sticky sweetness and dark fruits, like prunes or raisins. Bready malt flavors blend with a caramel or toffee sweetness and finishes with a zesty Belgium spice that lingers in the aftertaste.

    Medium body with a medium to higher level of carbonation. Between the higher carbonation and the zesty spices, the mouth feel has a prickly sharpness on the tongue with a sticky sweetness.

    Overall an another very nice beer from Ommegang. Well balanced and very drinkable for a beer of the style. Great flavors and are rich and enjoyable with every sip! A must try beer!
