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

golden with large white head and high carbonation. nose of belgian esters and american citrus hops. solid bitterness before the above flavors being well represented. the alcohol is well hidden providing some depth and the finish is dry and crisp. a very nice version of a hoppy belgian golden strong

zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2011
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Bubbly gold pour with a very big fizzy white head. Slightly spicy and yeasty aroma with some mild sweet hints. Flavor is spicy and yeasty but somehow is a bit off. Too sweet and syrupy with an overly sweet alcohol bite at the end.

kidmartinek (3545) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
A little cloudy golden yellow. Pure white head. Enticing aroma of tart sugars and wild and light belgian yeast. Tart and sweet belgian flavor. Candy in a glass? You have to be in the mood for it.

750ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale golden color with a white head. Nose is of Belgian yeast, straw and floral scents. Taste is of lemon, some malt and spices. Mouthfeel is dry and well carbonated. Pretty good.

Ughsmash (7099) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2011
750mL bottle. Poured clear orangey-golden with a short-lived, fizzy white head. The aroma picked up peppery, clovey, and fruity yeast over fruity and bready malts.. warmth brought out a heavy floral and catty hop presence.. somewhat assertive, but it maintained its balance. The flavor found a blend of warm pale and bready malts, with a hefty infusion on fruity and clovey yeast.. fruity bitterness played well with the thick spices on the edges.. long, warm, spicy finish. Medium-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. well-balanced and tasty. I’m going to drink more of these.

Ernest (6154) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), moderately yeasty (basement, cobwebs), with notes of lemon zest, gum, pepper. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Very enjoyable for its kind, and an improvement over the first time I had it three years ago (Ommegang has improved in general in the past year or two, it seems). Not dry enough to call a tripel, but not too sweet either; it’s quite drinkable and almost quaffable. Basic Belgian aromatics, rather yeast-forward, but clean and enticing (and not a banana bomb).

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy orange-yellow with a foamy white head. The nose is very yeasty with notes of dough, white pepper, and bubble gum. The flavor is very yeasty with lots of peppery bitterness and slight florals. Light to medium body with a good bit of softer carbonation leading to a medium finish. A tasty and highly drinkable Belgian.
