Ommegang Biere D’Hougoumont
Ommegang Biere D’Hougoumont is brewed with traditional French ale yeast, eight malts, French Strisselspalt hops, and aged on white oak and hard maple wooden staves. This Bière de Garde is malty and sweet with some serious notes of vanilla and oak. There is a light maple sweetness followed by some spices and return to the dry oak on the finish. Even at 7.3% ABV Ommegang suggests you age this and I would have to agree, this feels like some age would do it well. Might have to find another bottle before they’re gone.
