Description 

Grains of Truth is Ommegang’s ale honoring the harvest season. Using barley, oats, wheat, and rye, we’ve brought the mood of fall to life with vibrant and flavorful passion.

Farming is about precision, timing and care. At Ommegang we place the same emphasis a farmer has for his crops into the creation of our beers. Grains of Truth is a testament to the craft and care of farming, from which our farmstead-brewed beers benefit greatly.

Brewed with balance in mind, Grains of Truth reveals a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with light toastiness and gentle sweetness. Bright amber in color from the mixed malts, the beer is balanced with delicate hopping to counter rather than overpower the malt profile.

Pouring orange with a thick white head, this beer’s aroma is heavily redolent of Belgian yeast with plenty of orange in the nose, and a bitter spiciness from rye, brewing spices and bittering hops. The promise of the aroma is fulfilled in the flavor profile, which is full of fruity esters and peppery notes. The resulting alcohol warmth is restrained, and its medium to full body finishes with pleasant, balanced Belgian yeast esters and spices. This ambitious ale punches well above its weight and wraps as well as it starts.
