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. Pilsnertest (296) - SWEDEN - APR 1, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours golden yellow with small head. Taste is yeasty. White bread dough, white pepper, herbs, wormwood and hints of bitter honey. MetalNHopHead (2182) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Ommegang’s Gnomegang is the kind of refined Belgian Blonde you would expect as the result when the brewing minds at Ommegang and Brasserie d’Achouffe 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. Tide (4348) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2017

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.

A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Orange juice, spice.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish.
O- Tasty stuff. Loaded with juicy oranges and a balance of spice. Almost like drinking a mulled orange juice. SONOFWODEN (72) - New York, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Seriously good. I cannot figure out which I like more -- Ommegang’s Hennepin Saison or Gnomegang. Both are delicious. I get medium sweetness from fruit, herbs, some yeast, and a light kick at the end from hops. Like the Saison, a great aroma and easy to drink. Can’t keep my nose out of the glass. maekchu (4054) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of wheat, Belgian yeast, and light spice. Medium gold/amber color, thin head, and sticky slow-dropping lace. Fairly sweet malty initial, candi sugar, mild banana, sweet fruit (apples), and mild back-end bitterness. Very pleasant. Somewhat like Westmalle Tripel. Alcohol is is disguised - does not seem to be 9.5% at all. zoucrew102 (2104) - - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with notes of banana and clove. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head that has decent retention and good lacing. Starts with spicy clove and banana sweetness. Finishes smooth with a good spicy bite from the Belgian yeast. Nice Belgian blonde.
