Ommegang BPA, now at the WCYC!

Just added to the large format beer section of our beer list over at the WCYC: 

Ommegang BPA, Cooperstown, New York (25.4 ounces).

I love this beer!  Pours a beautiful golden color with a sticky head that grips to the side of the glass.  The aroma is really light, but sweet in the back of the nose hinting at bananas and cream with a subtle floral quality throughout.

Tastes a little sweet at the beginning with some mango and grapefruit. A subtle herbaceousness eventually makes itself present, with the sweet fruit fading into the background.  Their choice of hops balances this beer quite well.  This is a smooth and food-friendly Belgian-style pale ale...a crisp, refreshing brew that pairs remarkably well with certain seafood dishes.  Big fan!  Offered in large format at 25.4 ounces.  Enjoy it by yourself or share it with a friend while enjoying a bowl of steamed clams or a plate of fish n' chips!
