This delectable blonde ale is a co-creation of two famed farmstead breweries: Brewery Ommegang and Brasserie d’Achouffe. It employs five fine malts, two noble hops, and both of the distinctive Chouffe and Ommegang yeasts. You’ll enjoy the smooth drinkability, fruity aromas and flavors, and warming finish

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - APR 25, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750ml corked and caged bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a nice deScription of the beer and it lists the abv at 9.5%. Appearance: The body has a tan/blonde color with a heavy haze and some light brown sediment floating around near the bottom of the glass. On top there is an off white cap of foam that slowly settles and makes some nice slick lacing on the glass. Smell: There is a big classic Belgian yeast character coming to the nose. With it comes fruit, funk and wet hay mixed with some sweet bready malt and solid notes of floral/spicy hops. Taste/Palate: It started with a nice base of sweet bready malt and yeast with a light touch of funk and wet hay. Inside this are some nice fruity notes as well and I get white wine grapes, light unripe peach and mild orange blossom. This is all backed up by a firm floral and spicy hop bitterness that adds a pleasant balance and dryness to the finish. It’s well balanced on the palate and fun to drink. Notes: Overall it is an outstanding Belgian which to me seems to fits somewhere between a Blond and a Triple. Also of note here is the very well hidden 9.5% abv.

Unclear pale golden beer. Dry solvent nose, yeast, white candi sugar. First a dry taste, then getting sweeter and slick, despite good carbonation. Bit middle of the road.

A fruity, vinous aroma leads you into a powerful fruit and alcohol body. Apples, pears, plums, and hints of cocoa. Finishes dry.

(On Tap) Slightly cloudy yellow with a faint light head. Very smooth with a semi-sweet caramel taste and a warm finish. Reminded me of Gulden Draak but not quite as good. Great for sipping and relaxing. Flavor is good but not too overpowering. Could have lasted a little longer.

WTF, funny name. Clear pale @ bocktown. Slight sweet perfume aroma. Quite strong in yeasty feel on the uptake. Some rational clove on the attitude. Yea, that ommy yeast is just so there. Becomes a little difficult. Finish is spicy clove with barely any co2. Could not appreciate.
