Brewery Ommegang "Adoration" Belgian Ale, New York 750ml (CA Only)

SKU #1052163

Ommegang Adoration, brewed in the authentic style of Belgian winter, or Noel beer, is dark, strong, malty and assertively spiced. At 10% abv Adoration is not a lightweight beer, and is best sipped before a roaring fire, or on a sleigh ride over the hills to Grandma's house. (But let someone else drive.) It would also be a tasty accompaniment to dark roasts and wild game. Even at the strong abv, the beer is well-balanced and not at all hot or fiery. The dark malts give it lush, malty flavors and aromas, strongly complemented by the five spices, including coriander, cumin, mace, cardamom and grains of paradise. Hopping is modest, as befits such a beer.

My brother and I went all out in our selection of holiday/winter ales for a Christmas tasting. Of course, K&L (with the help of ale god Bryan Brick) was the store of choice to make my selections. Out of all the interesting and superb winter ales I had, none of them came close to Ommegang Adoration. What a stunner. This is the best holiday ale I have had to date. The ale is dark and malty in body with intense orange peel flavors, and added aromatic spices that brought this ale to class of its own. Other spices holiday ales do not taste like this. Trust me. I tried many an ale from all over the world. It is worth the price and tastes like a Christmas/holiday festivity should taste like.

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

New York

- Grape production is a significant part of this North Eastern state's agricultural economy. New York produces more wine than any other state in the US, with the exception of California. The wine market in New York City is also one of the world's most competitive, and this has inspired the growth of many small, private wineries throughout the state's producing regions (Finger Lakes, Lake Erie, and the Hudson River). Another interesting development is the introduction of an entirely new region along the eastern end of Long Island.
