Ommegang! This is a little beer I discovered years ago after the founder was interviewed on Martha Stewart. It is, quite possibly, the best beer I've had made in the USofA. It's "Belgium style", which is basically, the shit. As all you Euro history buffs know, back in the day the fair county of Belgium was the center for the oriental spice trade in Europe. Banking on all their resources, brewmasters used toasted spices like coriander in their fermentations for an amazingly complex taste.
This guy is no exception. Full bodied, fruity, not too hoppie. Do it. Find it at BevMo.
