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

Dark golden yellow, white cover. Aroma is spicy, both alcohol and esters, sweet malt. Taste is more sweet, noticeable alcohol, a light fruitiness and spicing yeast finish. Like La Chouffe but is perceived to be stronger on the palate.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2011
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Hazy light orange-brown body, thick puffy off-white head. Fruity, herbal nose with hints of banana and clove in addition to vinous light fruit characteristics (white grape), wet grass, and fennel. Delicate, sweet and spicy. Sweet, herbal, dusty body, grassy with flower nectar, candi sugar, bubblegum, clove, white wine, soapy/herbal hops, and a soft, herbal finish. Warming alcohol. A delicious, complex beer, fruity but not heavy or syrupy.

jimhilt (2489) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Pours a five+ finger white head that fades quickly leaving traces of lace. Hazy straw color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Vague light fruit nose, flavor is sweet & tart fruit. Higher ABV is hidden. There are other blondes like Leffe that are better. Not worth $15.95 for a 750ml bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

Fred82 (2123) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
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.
