3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden Belgian Strong Ale packing a siren of a Belgian yeast, spiced malts and bitterness completing the beer. I was expecting the flavor to be much like a mighty Dodge Ram truck. Large, imposing, powerful yet elegant. The collaboration delivers more of a flavor suited for a 1996 Mazda light pick-up. Gnomegang is enjoyable just not as powerful or complex as I expected.

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.

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.

Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Nose is yeasty and fruity. Palate is medium heavy body. Taste is sweet malt with no trace of bitterness. My standard is Duvel. This does not reach that level.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy, very bubbly gold, with a huge lasting fluffy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Yeasty aroma along with some perfumey notes, bread, light herbs, a touch of bubblegum and finally, some grass. Flavour of Belgian yeast, also a bit sweet, grassy and perfumey, along with some herbs, alcohol and straw. Slightly harsh finish. Medium bodied. Though a bit boozy for a Blonde, still pretty good.

Always get the Belgian yeast coming through with these guys. Bready nose. Tastes of peach, bread, & lemon. A little more boozy than I am used to from Ommegang. Overall a nice clean Belgian Strong.

Clear copper pour. Aroma is cherry, vanilla, banana, and cloves. Tastes like ommegang like all their beers. I think they only have 3-4 beers total. Quite sweet and overall pretty decent but not that drinkable.

This beer pours crystal clear and light and is absolutely delicious. It actually tastes similar to a Tripel. Excellent!
