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

Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a murky toffeeish medium amber. Big creamy white head that falls a bit and then sticks around. Mild caramel and butterscotch nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweet mid palate; caramel toffee and butterscotch. A little hot at the end. Not too bad.

thirdeye11 (5952) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2011
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clearish golden with a few fine tan bubbles. Nose is a bit tart, spicy Belgian yeast, funky, gold raisins, white pepper, quite complex. Taste of gold raisins, mild alcohol, medium sweet grain, linger of sweet grain, alcohol and more golden raisins. Nice. Reminds me of a tripel in several ways.

Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle at RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting at The Dean Swift, London. Pours a clearish, shiney gold with a sturdy, white head. Yeast, candi sugar, dough aroma. Sweet flavor, slight booze, doughy yeast, light bubblegum, light hay. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Warm finish, slight bitterness, candi sugar, big dough. Very sweet and strong. Nice.

FatPhil (12716) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle (RBESG2011, Grand Tasting)
Slightly hazy gold. Perfumy tripel aroma. Very belgian. Almondy malty body. One of Achouffe’s poorer brews, to be honest. Pleasantly dry, but also some alcohol detracts. Just stick with their regular ones, I’d say.

750ml bottle from Pick’s poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. Pours a cloudy orange with a minimal amount of white head that dissipates quickly. Very soft aroma of tangerine, wheat, and a slight spice. Taste is medium-light sweet and very slightly sour. Taste of fermented fruit, coriander, some baking spices and a slight hint of banana. The alcohol makes it’s presence nicely known here. Light bodied with a slick yet creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long sweet finish. Overall, very good. I would seek this out to drink again.

flatmatt (1369) - Northville, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2011
750 mL bottle, packaged 02/24/11, best by 02/2013. Pours a hazed golden with a white head. Yeasty bubble gum aroma, apple, spices. Flavor is apple, pear, cloves and bubble gum, grassiness. A very nice Belgian golden here, though it doesn’t tread any new ground.
