Ommegang

(1/3) > >>

bigfatjoey:
I am so impressed with each Ommegang beer that I try.  I can't give this brewery enough credit.  AMAZING.

"Three Philosophers" may be one of the best beers I've ever had.  Rare Vos and Abbey Ale are up there also. 

redbeerman:
I wish I could, but the styles don't do it for me.  Hennepin is OK, but I'm not a big saison fan.  Their abbey ale is pretty good though.

bluesman:
I liked the Hennepin and thought the Abbey was pretty good too. I was pleasantly surprised with their Witte. They are a first class operation AFAIAC.

enso:
I had a hankering for Three Philosophers.  Grabbed one last night.  Man that was good.  Wish I had gotten a few, it really hit the spot.

I find that I often take Ommegang for granted because it is one excellent brewery that is readily available.  I am always on the lookout for something I cannot usually get.  But I inevitably enjoy their beers greatly.  I always think, "I'll buy a few of each and cellar them" but rarely do.

On that note I will say I tend to enjoy their beers even more with some age on them.  First time I had some Ommegang it was some long neglected bottles marked down for clearance. 

CASK1:
I'm a big fan of all their beers EXCEPT the Witte. Compared to other Wits I've had, it is watery and lifeless. To end on a high note, Hennepin and Rare Vos are two of my favorites.
