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

750ml bottle from Winooski.
Appearance : Clear blond with a small head.
Aroma : Hops and malt, light honey, rather herbal.
Taste : Malt with light bitterness. Some honey. Some alcohol too. Interesting yeasty notes on finish.
Overall : Nothing really exciting. Bitterness feels a bit odd and isn’t really enjoyable when mixed with the alcoholic notes. Nice yeast but not my thing overall.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Strong best describes this beer. Strong flavor, big mouthfeel and overpoweringly Belgian. There is nothing meek or subtle about this one. Worth every penny.

Absolutely perfect. I should probably give this a five, but I hope that someday I will try something just a tad better. Seriously, everything that Ommegang makes brings a happy tear to my eye. Forget about aroma and taste. Ommegang has soul.

Very nice. A bit cloudy, gold. Nose is funky, spicy, fruity with apricots dominating. Palate is thick, yeasty, complex, a bit of booze. Holds together well.

Golden orange in color with a thick white head. Very strong spicy yeast nose. Sweet, citrusy, and yeasty on the tongue. Buttery smooth. Bitter finish at first but finishes nicely.
