sweet and fruity with a classy malt backing. interesting yeasty almost doughy and spicy feel. mine had moderate carbonation that was not refreshing. well made. golden color that does give off pleasant and unpleasant aromas.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAY 3, 2007
The 25.4 ounce bottle poured a beautifully clear amber colored beverage with a generous white creamy head that was completely lasting and left copious lacing on the glass. The aroma was a complex blend of spices and yeast with coriander and peaches playing a major role. There were also notes of bread and pepper in the background. The body was medium-full with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy texture. The flavor started out lightly sweet with the peach and coriander playing on the palate. The finish was moderately long with the sweetness lasting through to the end. A nice alcohol warmth also developed in the chest toward the end of the finish.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 28, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with a large long lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, corriander, yeast spice, and light herbal hops. Taste is the same with a hint of citrus. Medium mouthfeel that finishes dry and spicy. A tried and true favorite.

Beautiful appearance. Hazy orange with a large frothy head. Sweet and spicy, citrus fruit with a decent but understated hop balance. A complex and seductive beer.

shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 Bottle. Pours with a nice, large frothy head common among belgian ales. Its speckled with little dots of yeast sediment (lees) that look almost like a sprinkling of nutmeg. The scent is very complex with hints of cinammon, and nice citrusy note. The appearance is a spectacular golden orange. It has a very thick and full palate, with a rather smooth and silky texture. It tastes like other golden ales but with and extra element of intense spiciness, likely from the coriander. Overall it is well-rounded, drinkable and yet very intense and somewhat alcoholic. My favorite part of this beer though has to be the name and eccentricity of the brewery. Raise a glass to La Gnome!

Draft. Pours light yellow w/medium head and lacing. Fruity aroma which dominates taste. Better than I remembered.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2007
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a very murky light amber color with a very large head. The lacing on this glass is extremely thick. If you don’t watch your pour, you could get all head. The smell is very malty and fruity. I really think peach dominated the scent of this bad boy. The taste is very different from other Belgian strong ales. I noted a peachy taste with malt and some yeast. The taste that really messes with the palate is pepper. There wasn’t much in the way of carbonation or hops here. This is a very interesting beer, not at all what I expected.

k4df4l (154) - DTown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2007
750 ml bottle - pours a hazy golden with a massive fluffy white head that hangs in for a looooong time. Yeasty, sweet candied fruit and spicy aroma. Flavor is initially sweet malts, candi sugars and fruits that develops into belgian yeasts notes with spice and pepper into a dry very lightly hopped finish. Medium/thick palate.

beermouth (435) - Langeskov, DENMARK - APR 20, 2007
Hazy clear golden yellow with huge foamy head. Lot’s of fruit, yeast, malt and citrus taste and aroma. Good struckture and fine lacing.
