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

Both of the brewery’s in this adventure are great and maybe I just wanted to much,but I was a little let down. All the basics are here aroma good,appearance great but at 9.5 abv you think you are going to get a big and complex beer and I was bored with it. Easy drinker and I would drink again but with less expectation.

wnp22 (691) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Purchased in Dillon at Wine and Liquors. 750ml. Tasted at Keystone. Tasted in incorrect glassware for the style. Pours a thin white head...dissipates to a thin film. Cloudy golden colour. Sweet aroma, somewhat malty, with hints of candy floss. Flavour is less sweet, bold and malty, clean finish with very little hop profile. Perfect Ommegang - d’Achouffe fusion.

Changed (381) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2015
12 oz bottle. Been waiting for a reasonable price on this one. Pours slightly hazy golden/orange. White head, decent lacing. Aroma is yeast and lots of fruit (peach, banana mostly). Slightly boozy, strong malt. Ripe fruits, banana finish. Slightly funky. Highly carbonated, sweet finish. Delicious.

weihenweizen (2196) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a Trappist glass. Hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is nice citrus, medium/light body, well carbonated, and thick medium-bubble lacing. Taste is citrus, bitter orange peel, and some yeasty. This is a good tripel.

Dorwart (2442) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Good sized offwhite head of mostly fine bubbles and surprisingly light carbonation. Yeasty aroma with lots of fresh fruit, peaches, straw and lemongrass. Color is a cloudy golden orange. Lively in the mouth with a noticeable alcohol presence and warming. A tad of sugary sweetness up front then melds into a herbal and grassy flavor. A surprisingly strong malt backbone for this brew with more ripe fruit and yeast. Your typical saison on steroids. A pretty decent brew but not worth the price it was initially selling for. Glad i found it on sale finally.

Bottle from Buffalo bottle shop. Fat white head w/big ester aroma. Slight sweetness from malt with a dry slightly bitter finish. Great beer.

Beachmaster (236) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a clear golden yellow, with a persistent white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast--cloves, bananas, dark fruit. Taste is sublime-malty with a touch of sweetness, creamy mouth feel and a smooth finish. Delightful, outstanding strong ale.

czar (5704) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
sample at mondial de la bière 2015 - mtl. hazy almost cloudy medium dark golden with a reviving and stuffy white cap, nicely lacing. spicy toasted very fruity maltiness - doughy, layers of fruity caramel, ripened pear juice - tender peppery peaches also, yeast, woodsy and grassy, bright carbonation, mediumbody - oily; warming fruity-herbal-grassy-spicy finish. caramel cardamom-spiced apple sauce. belgian-style/belgium pioneers that succeed for an interesting brew but does not quite take it to the bext level.
