COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Gnome was brewed in homage to the recent arrivals of hoppy Belgian beers that we’re starting to see here in the US. I was really shooting for that beautifully soft hopping that’s found in the Houblon Chouffe, however, the Gnome has developed its own unique characteristics and flavor profile. The base beer is a Belgian triple brewed with White Labs Chimay-style yeast. I really liked the fruit character from this yeast, but man, that stuff still hasn’t dropped bright. The hopping was done with Vanguard, Sterling and East Kent Goldings. I think this beer has a lot of potential, though I’d like another shot at brewing the style. There is a very limited amount of this beer, so if you happen to see it on tap, go ahead and share a pint with your gnomies!

Color dorado con espuma abundante y cremosa, muy belga. Es una cerveza fuerte, cálida, falta de armonía por un amargor que no acaba de encajar, pero con un gran aroma, muy personal. Hierbas de perfume, naranja, melón y miel, con una puntita metálica.

Bottled 650ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Hazy orange/golden coloured, medium sized off-white head, fruity sticky nose. Sweet malty, quite fruity and sharp alcoholic with notes of plums, wood and light spices. Big yeasty sediment without really yeast presence. Mild spicy finish. Drinkable.

RW80 (889) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle (65 cl) shared. apperance: hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head with a decent retention, leaving not that much lacing. Aroma: Bready malt, some bubble gum and pear, orange and yeast, dried fruit. Taste:moderate sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, riped fruit,(oranges) dried fruits (arprictos), some bread and light yeast and alcohol only there in the back. Medium -full body, soft carbbonation., oily texture. And American Belgian strong Ale. Quite interesting and better as most Belgians I had in this style in the last months. However it seems to be a bit more orange instead of lemon based incase of fruityness.

Aromas y sabores maltosos afrutados,, un autentico zumo de piña. Con toques amargos ligeros sobretodo al coger temperatura.

"kinda like the bastard child of belgo old guardian and more traditional belgians. the yeast is fruity, spicy ,and sweet, with the hops a little more in the background. some alcohol heat shines through, as dome some bubble gum aroma and flavor. nicely done, tasty brew."
