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

Pour is rich opaque orange with a thin and dense sticky bright white head...smell is light and fruity and sweet with vanilla, hints of orange, some banana...taste is also sweet, but not cloyingly so...bubblegum, banana, some other lightly fruity flavors...here and there throughout there are some hints of booze in it...lightly musty barnyard finish....very nice!

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Appearance: hazy orange – a solid cloud of haze. White head fades into a thick collar. Swirls thicker along edges with no lace but a thin film lingers.
Nose: yeasty. A tropical mélange of oranges, bananas, aloe, papaya, pineapple. Hand-kneaded dough for some lovely sweet rolls. Pureed raspberry and strawberry. Lemon sorbet. Playful.
Palate: doughy and yeasty. Green and freshly plucked and peeled green bananas. Papaya, guava, aloe, and orange in the back. Seamless procession of flavor. Raw tropical skins in the finish, sweet bitter fleshy. Lemon-lime. Lovely. Spice in the back – white pepper, grains of paradise; ticklish.
Final Thoughts: yum and yum. Ommegang never fails to delight and impress with their Belgian inspired beers. A little slice of far far away in Cooperstown, New York makes for a destination none should miss. If you come across any Gnomegang in bottle or draft, be sure to grab a quaff or three.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours orange with a bit of haze and some white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet malt, caramel, and some fruity esters. Taste is fairly sweet, more yeast, bready malt, alcohol is well masked. Tasty but a bit I felt it was a bit sweet.

bhensonb (10340) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2011
750 c&c from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber gold with a 4 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is earthy, lemon, cucumber/melon, orange, lightly grassy/spicey. Whew! Med body. Flavor is quite spicey - maybe even cinnamon. Earthy. Very fruity. Definitely grassy/herby. All that, yet it is rather mellow. And there’s not a trace of heat. This is my desert island beer. Oh yeah!

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2011
750ml, just released. pours hazed orange with gold foamy white head. Nose has spicy, lemony, florals, earth, and yeast. flavors of sweet bread, dough, lemons, yeast and honey earthy notes, really refreshing and alcohol is well hidden, could have use more bitterness and dry hopping.

TheHopster (746) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2011
(bottle) A great find and pick from Stoutragious. Aroma of yeast with light golden unfiltered complexion. Traditional Belgian malt flavor. ABV well hidden within the style. Typical Ommegang quality. I always enjoy co-brewers creations. This was a nice match.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Draft… Brilliant golden ale with a light haze and a small, fizzy, white head. Spicy, fruity nose – clove, coriander and pear with nice melon rind and lemon peel components. Medium-bodied and mildly oily with tickling carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor and finish – honey, pale malts, coriander, clove, lemon zest and a white pepper farewell. Surprisingly easy to drink for such a high gravity beer. I was totally unaware of the alcohol content when I drank this.
