COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Lambic Golden Ale. There is one particular ale, famous around the world, which is brewed in the Val d’or, in the region of Gaume in Belgium. It’s a small, unusual ale, with pronounced spiceyness, a little tartness and plenty of funk. It has long been a favourite at Red Duck, so with some careful brewing we unleashed a regular Belgian ale yeast and two different lambic yeast strains. Red Duck Gnaume is a hybrid beauty, somewhere between the magic of a Gnome and the magic of that famous ale from Gaume. Does not contain any real gnomes.

jrhoades (4) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2013 does not count
Flat aroma, too much fizz. Lacks any real sourness and no tangy after taste to speak off. A poor imitation of a Lambic ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy gold with a white head that laces well. Fruity aroma with tart notes - nectarines, citrus blossoms, lemon pudding, oranges, hints of funk. Sweet and fruity, creamy textured. Dryish, mildly astringent finish with pepper, vanilla, some cloves. Had assumed this was the same, but having had a few it does lack a little of the zesty punch of the collaborative version. Still, lovely stuff.

Davros (1897) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours gold with a quickly fading head. Nose shows a little funk and lenom but it’s not that enticing, smells a bit cheesy. Flavours include brett notes, some malt and little else. Needs some acidity. Too much carbonation. A little plain to be honest.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Similar, but different, to their collaboration version with Kissmeyer. Not as fruity/spicy, more earthy. Spicy yeast, cinnamon, sourdough, some malt sweetness with a slightly sour/tart finish. Interesting.
