3xB: Ommegang Cup O Kyndnes
This Week’s Big Bottle: Ommegang Cup O Kyndnes
It pours a hazy and dark red or cherry like color. Nice Lacing and good head. It has a strong toasty caramel malt flavor. Some earth and smoke notes as well. It has a medium body, which is fitting as it is a Belgian interpretation of usually heavier Scotch ales. I didn’t pick up an obvious hoppiness, but this brew is spiced up with cloves and heather. As expected the Belgian part of the brew contributed citrus fruit flavors (banana, etc.). I experienced a crisp almost prickly finish, but it was not unpleasant. I have nothing negative to say about this ale. I enjoyed drinking every ounce as it is a good hybrid ale. If you’re into that sorta thing, pick one up.
