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

Scipio (690) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a bright and hazy yellowish golden with a medium white head. More sweet aroma contains orange, wheat, apple, banana, and spices. Very Belgainy. The taste is fruity which is balanced by a nice sweetness. It loses a little bit from the aroma. Here we find wheat, orange, banana, and just a touch of orange. Orange and wheat aftertaste is short. Alcohol content is noticed rather quickly. Medium bodied, thick in texture, with soft carbonation. Nothing really stands out with this one to make it really special, but its alright.

Good beer! Poured from a bottle. Little head or lacing, cloudy yellow- orange color. Sour mash aroma. Tangy down the gullet.

Vaiz (3336) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine, Summerlin. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, slightly yeasty, a hint of funk and somewhat earthy. Flavor is quite bitter, slightly fruity and with a thick body. Nice balance and well drinkable.

Fruity and a little bit spicy. Not a lot of head - opposite what is said in other ratings. All in all a good Belgian Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a golden yellow with a very foamy white head. Aroma is sweet Belgian yeast. Flavor is the same, along with a touch of spice. Pretty good.

Freaky_tiki (530) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle from Helsdon -- thanks man! -- pours a murky deep orange. Next no head on my pour, which conflicts with reports & ratings below me. But what a fantastic treat of a brew this is: Belgian yeast goodness, pure beer candy mojo & a lovely sipper all in one. And careful, the alcohol at 9.5%, is on pure stealth mode here & will make the walk up the staircase & out of my freaky tiki man cave all that more interesting tonight. Wish I had more.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Pours yellow with a big head. Grassy and rather yeasty in the nose, seeming rather dry. Flavor is somewhat interesting, drinkable, but lacking dimensionality. Fruitiness was not as forward; and the moderate dryness turns out for the best. Decent but somewhat not to my liking this night. Bottle.
