Ommegang "Duvel Rustica"
Brewery Ommegang - Cooperstown, New York USA
Belgian Style Golden Ale (ABV 8.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Trappist Glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a hazy yellow amber with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that reduced to a thin film and medium collar, with very good sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple, pears and a touch of coriander.

The taste was mildly sweet and very fruity from the get go and pretty much lasted throughout, progressing slightly with a bold yeast presence along with a spicy citrus taste towards the finish. The flavor hung around for a good long while following the swallow, with a nice citrus yeast taste that was complemented by a mellow alcohol warming sensation.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body with a mildly dry yet creamy texture and a carbonation that just went beyond mild in intensity.

Overall I have to say this brewer never seems to disappoint, and this is no exception. This beer is a fantastic representation of a Belgian Golden Ale with a great taste and superb drinkability...
