Beer Review: Ommegang, Grains of Truth

Overall: 4.5 out of 5, Great execution of the Belgian Pale Ale style

Category: Belgian Pale Ale

Appearance: Amber color, thick frothy white head with moderate persistence

Aroma: Grainy sweet malt, Belgian yeast aroma (not pepper)

Mouthfeel: Medium body, prickly carbonation

Flavors: Prickly carbonation gives way to malt sweetness, finishes dry

Aftertaste: Malt flavor lingers but not in an unpleasant way

Food Pairing: This would go great with a soft cheese. The intense carbonation would have no problem scrubbing the palate clean and the mild sweet malt flavors would mix well with salty/umami flavors of a brie cheese.

Harvest Ale
