Ommegang "BPA" (Belgian-style Pale Ale)
Brewery Ommegang - Cooperstown, New York USA
Belgian Ale 9ABV 6.2%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a hazy golden orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that lasted throughout, reducing slowly down to a large foamy cap which produced excellent sheets of sticky lace.

The aroma was of a grain malt, an herbal hop and a musty yeast with notes of citrus (lemon) and a bit of clove.

The taste was malty with a slight hint of wheat and a note of citrus at first and then had a strong yeasty taste with a good dose of spice at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time which was kind of disappointing, as this was one tasty brew.

Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body with a smooth creamy texture and a good lively carbonation.

Overall an extremely good tasting brew with a low alcohol content for a Belgian Ale, which makes this a beer I could drink all day long…
