It employs five fine malts, two noble hops, and both of the distinctive Chouffe and Ommegang yeasts. Youll enjoy the smooth drinkability, fruity aromas and flavors, and warming finish

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - APR 25, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750ml corked and caged bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a nice description of the beer and it lists the abv at 9.5%. Appearance: The body has a tan/blonde color with a heavy haze and some light brown sediment floating around near the bottom of the glass. On top there is an off white cap of foam that slowly settles and makes some nice slick lacing on the glass. Smell: There is a big classic Belgian yeast character coming to the nose. With it comes fruit, funk and wet hay mixed with some sweet bready malt and solid notes of floral/spicy hops. Taste/Palate: It started with a nice base of sweet bready malt and yeast with a light touch of funk and wet hay. Inside this are some nice fruity notes as well and I get white wine grapes, light unripe peach and mild orange blossom. This is all backed up by a firm floral and spicy hop bitterness that adds a pleasant balance and dryness to the finish. Its well balanced on the palate and fun to drink. Notes: Overall it is an outstanding Belgian which to me seems to fits somewhere between a Blond and a Triple. Also of note here is the very well hidden 9.5% abv.

ardeo (334) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2017
Bouteille. Bire orange mousse blanche assez persistante. Nez : peu prononc mais allant sur les crales et le floral. Bouche : biscuit, orange, caramel, levures, un peu de sucre candi, des pices (poivre, coriandre ?), une amertume et une effervescence moyenne. Une bonne triple " la belge" mais qui a un peu des allures de "saison".

alteregoo (1297) - Kalisz, POLAND - APR 4, 2017
Puszysta, obfita i drobna piana, ktra długo utrzymuje się na powierzchni i pięknie zdobi szkło. Barwa złota, lekko mętna. Aromat przypomina klasycznego tripla - jest troszkę biszkoptw, brzoskwiń, ził... W smaku słodkawe, biszkoptowo rodzynkowe z dodatkiem gumy balonowej, kandyzowanej moreli i miodu, z fajnym ziołowo przyprawowym finiszem i lekką chmielową goryczką. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, bardzo pijalne w odbiorze, praktycznie nie czuć alkoholu.
To po prostu bardzo dobry, deserowy i pijalny jednocześnie Tripel w belgijskim stylu - przypomina De Dolle Dulle Teve.

Lore (2563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 2, 2017
hazy golden to orange colour, medium sized dense white head; aroma of wheat, citrusy and earthy, maybe some peppery notes, some peach and slight banana; taste of bread crust, sourish wet wheat, peach, peppery and honey notes, as well as minimal banana and citruses; excellent Belgian strong ale

ciocanelu (2043) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 1, 2017
Golden color with a bit of haze and white head. Aroma has a nice, floral yeast profile with some candi sugar in the background. Taste starts on the sweet side, slightly sugary, yeasty with earthy farmhouse notes, some dusty hops with medium bitterness on the finish and lingers on the aftertaste. Medium body, soft carbonation, quite atypical for the style. ABV is hidden really well and it has a nice mouthfeel, makes the beer easy drinking.

Ommegangs Gnomegang is the kind of refined Belgian Blonde you would expect as the result when the brewing minds at Ommegang and Brasserie dAchouffe come together. Golden appearance. Nose reveals spicy, citrusy, and champagne-like yeast esters. Belgian candy and spice flavors. Feel is smooth and partially crisp with mild hoppiness. The 9.5% be damned, I could drink this at about any hour of the day.

Bottle from Brewdog. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, earthy notes, yeast, wheat, ripe fruits and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, earthy notes, wheat, yeast and ripe fruits. Very nice blonde ale.

Hazy orange in the glass. Malt, cereal, nuts and barnyard aromas. In the mouth coarse carbonation, alcohol, banana, butterscotch and a cheesy finish. A little funky for me. Hiccups right off the bat.

Bottle from Beergium. Pours semiclear cloudy yellow with white head. Banana, spices, orange, bread, yeast. Mediumfull body, floral taste. Medium sweet, creamy texture and pretty livley carbonation. Pretty nice one, more like a tripel imo.
