Pours hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Smells citrusy followed by some bready qualities. Tastes primarily citrusy with hints of pine and maybe some bread flavors. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and present mouth-carbonation, Ommegang Gnomegang finishes smooth with faint bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 On draft at Amsterdam Ale House, and from a growler. Apparently co-brewed with La Chouffe (?). The aroma is floral, herby, and slightly soapy and yeasty. It is a robust, gold-colored Belgian that has some hoppy bitterness, yeast, pineapple, and wheat, followed by a soft sweetness. Complex and tasty.

Sampled at the river with C&C. Near clear golden amber pour with sticky white head. A little spicy, sweet vanilla, candi sugar, and yeast. Well balanced. Very good brew and pretty much classic belgian character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of belgian spices, sweet malt, yeast, and light alcohol. Flavor was overbearingly sweet, lightly spicey and fruity but just overwhelming sugars. Only big plus is that the alcohol is hidden pretty well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
aroma is bright and yeasty with lots of cloves and some citrus and sweet banana.
pours cloudy gold with small rocky white head.
flavor is tons of pineapple juice, sweet with some banana and a slight spice in the back. medium bodied but a bit syrupy and sticky, sweet finish. overall a solid brew, but too sweet. as it warms the alcohol takes care of some of that with a hot finish, but it’s still a bit cloying.
