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

Pours a hazy golden copper color with a lovely white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, spices. Very nice light flavor with some heat at the end which makes it lovely. Awesome beer.

reberiii (308) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Floral and aromatic for a blonde ale with a touch of spice; unfiltered light golden pour from 12 oz bottle. Two fingers of foam in a snifter/tulip. Soapy lacing that doesn’t cling. Tastes of bitter flowers/fruit...apricot? Medium to full-bodied that is a touch creamy. Dry finish that you get with most Ommegang lighter SRM beers. Easily my favorite blonde ale - it’s not one of my favorite styles, but this is pretty nice.

750ml brown bottle, corked. Golden pour, light haze. Small bed of white foam on top. Light lacing. Aroma has orange, lemon, yeast, caramel. Taste has caramel, bread, orange, yeast, grass, fruity notes, some sweetness. Late alcohol warms the throat, orange and lemon hop aftertaste with generous yeast notes. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Very pleasant, bottle was about 8 months old, stored cool.

BLADT (499) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2014
From bottle. Pours an opaque straw orange. Large white head. Big yeast nose, with a baked sugar quality. Mild pepper and orange. Become more complex on warming. Round flavors of butterscotch and peach cobbler on the sweet side, balance out with peppercorns, citrus and light earthiness. Dry finish.

vtafro (2973) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2014
(backlog, first back in the USA) Draft at hulmeville. Orange golden hazy pour with tan head. Weiss?, banana, clove, yeast, wheat and light fruit aromas and flavors.

NikkTwist (1529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Draft at Eulogy and later Good Dog. Hazy yellow blonde pour that starts with a large foamy white head. A clear blend of styles. Grassy hops. Sweet yeasty notes. Clementines. Biscuits. Has the feel of a Belgium single or strong ale married with a wheat beer. The result is better than both but still not overly extraordinary (to me).

lesifflebiere (1201) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Le nez est en levures belges (abricot, un peu d’épices, sucre cuit) dans cette blonde un peu trouble aux allures de sa cousine Duvel. La bouche est également bien fruitée, avant une conclusion sèche et houblonnée ; la levure est tellement épicée en fin de gorgée qu’on croit à une sorte de saison impériale. Tripel assez classique malgré tout, bien faite, ronde et doucereuse.

mfp13jr (148) - Glenville, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Hazy yellow gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity with a touch of discernible alcohol. Tastes is sweet Belgian candi, peaches and other fruit. Finish is long and sweet just as most Belgians.

Gnomegang was difficult to find in Florida, but I came across a bottle (the last one) at Total Wine. I didn’t expect a lot after the pour, as I usually go for darker beers/stouts and it was very blonde in color. I enjoyed it a lot, however, and the finish was definitely smooth and fruity. Overall I enjoyed it quite a bit and hope to come across it again.
