Very good. I grabbed a few of these up and forgot I had 'em. I've been going through my cellar finding $hit for the holidays and came across them. I'll be buying more.

Got this as an early Xmas present.

Decided to crack another one open after your comments and I think the "sweet/fruity flaw" I was perceiving is just a mix of higher FG than desired and hop flavor. Kind of strange, but I think that has to be it.

I'll have to get my parents to bring me some when they visit. They're my personal Chicago area beer distributer. I think GI is coming to Texas though, so that will be one less brand on my list eventually.

The ommegang was my favorite of the bunch. Even or better than the St Bernardus IMO Opinion. On par with Chimay blue for my taste.

What do you do when it's 1:25 and you can't go to sleep? Put a good movie on and pop the top on another homebrew of course. Just started We Were Soldiers and poured my Smoked Chocolate Porter.

It's 2:30 here, my wife's asleep on the couch, and I'm finishing the last of a bomber of saison (my last two bottles now in the fridge). I'm thinking I'll go for some Bitter next and then call it a night.
