COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

aroma is bright and yeasty with lots of cloves and some citrus and sweet banana. pours cloudy gold with small rocky white head. flavor is tons of pineapple juice, sweet with some banana and a slight spice in the back. medium bodied but a bit syrupy and sticky, sweet finish. overall a solid brew, but too sweet. as it warms the alcohol takes care of some of that with a hot finish, but it’s still a bit cloying.

Aroma has lots of fruity, yeasty notes, slightly sweet. It poured a hazy golden/yellow, decent head with medium retention. I taste tropical fruit, lots of Belgian yeast character going on, very refreshing. Medium-full body with high carbonation. Very tasty treat from Brewery Ommegang.

(750ml bottle purchased from El Cerrito Market). Pours golden with white head. Some floaties. Aroma has peppety belgian yeast, lemon, and grass. Taste is sweet with some light bitterness. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Dry, light bitter finish. Ok beer.

On tap, sample, at City Beer SF. Very pale yellow with white head. Smells more like a wheat then a belgian but you do get the yeasts along with citrus, bread, and surprisingly no booze. Mild, dry, somewhat sweet, fruity, well balanced but just doesn’t do it for me.

On tap at Leons. Pours a cloudy dark yellow color with nice lacing and a hay and floral aroma. Spicey hop flavor. Good sweetness and carbonation. Honey flavors working throughout with a bitter citrus finish. Nice beligan blond from the american outfit here.

Bottle from Ericandersnavy, thanks! Pale golden color. Peach in the aroma. Full bodied. Malty flavor with peach, alcoholic and grassy. Dried tropical fruit. Deceptively drinkable and pleasant strong ale.

Boutip (5031) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a super large off-white foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma consists of sweet Belgian malt with light bready yeast notes and light fruity ester. Taste is also a mix between some semi0sweet Belgian malt with a bready yeast with light peppery notes and some light refreshing ester also noticeable. Body is quite full with great carbonation and very light alcohol noticeable. Another winner from breweries that don’t get it wrong very often.
