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

Floral and citrus hop aromas, subtle sugar. Pale orange, slightly hazy, wgite head lasting. Dry, savory, some notes of butterscotch, some soft cheese funk. Light-medium bodied, smooth, well hidden high alcohol.

Pours hazy straw with a good amount of sediment. Nose is ommegang yeast, banana and fruity esters, a bit bready. Taste is interesting, with pineapple juice, house yeast, lot of fruity esters, rather sweet, barnyard funk. Does not taste nearly the almost 10% it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I got this as a sampler pack and couldn’t wait to drink it. It did not disappoint me. Not the absolute best but deserves the recognition.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn tap: Pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, spice, and apparently chocolate, though I could barely notice it. Apparently there was some licorice too, but it evaded my taste buds. Taste is nice and bitter, a tad funky, slightly sweet. Easy drinking. Light even though it has high abv. A subtle and nuanced beer.

at Union League. Clear golden with visible carbonation white head. Malty nose and yeasty. Spicy but full malt profile. Much fuller body than I expected and sweeter.

Hazy golden pour w/ a fluffy white head that leaves lacing. Enticing Belgian yeast & spice in the aroma. The taste is rather clean & crisp & exceptionally smooth at nearly 10%. It has just enough bite in the finish to make this fairly complex & tasty! Good stuff!

On tap at Bigalora. Nice complex Belgian aroma and taste, but a bit of a weak finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2014
On tap @ Blind Tiger House. A really deep dark brown one with a small quickly sidesticking brown top. The nose has tones of both chocolate and licorice but it’s definitely not what it would call extreme. Not bad at all though, and after a while in the glass it’s revealing soft tones of yeast, almonds and toffee-fee. It has a average carbonation level and a oily mouthfeel. Immideately I get a good alcohol burn in this one. Softy licorice the sweet kind, some more yeast, a little bit of herbs and a a trace of wood. Just grows better and better! 18.06.2013

One of the best BSAs that i have had in some time. Great collaboration leaves a beer that has great noble hop taste with the Ommegang yeast.
