Didn't know what to expect here. Nice pour, honey gold color rests under a two finger white rocky head. Belgian lacing, check. Head retention, less of a check. Aroma, well its weak. A little spicy, a little banana, and a suggestion of belgian candi sugar. The taste is clean, crisp. There are flavors of clove, banana, and spicy belgian yeast. A very clean pils malt, not much in the way of hops. Very esters are present, some green apple too. To think this is almost 10%, can't be but it is. A really well crafted, but simple beer. This makes it all the more impressive. These simple ales are tough to pull off well, and this one is a winner.

There's way too many brewery crossovers these days. At first, it was the The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones. Sure, it was cheap. But you loved both of those things and couldn't help but give them a chance. But lately, man. It's hard to work up any enthusiasm for the Boddington's/Magic Hat collaboration.

So we're dealing with something that is rarely, cheaply interesting and usually just a sad marketing ploy. How, then, does it work.

Well, when two brewers are complimentary, maybe? Like when the Floyds' hops mixed up with Sun Kings unparalleled yeastmanship. Or here, when the two Kings of dry, earthy Belgian-style beers get together to try and out dry earth one another.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is one hell of a Belgian Blonde. Like, the best BB I've ever had that wasn't brewed by De Dolle.

I'm so tired of listing the same handful of descriptors for each beer. (This tastes spicy, sweet, and a little bit hoppy) If you've had a strong BPA, you know the basic formula. Only, wow, it don't usually come together like this. The sweetness starts things off, then it gets so nice and spicy in the middle that burns--but it burns like peppers, not like alcohol--and then that fades slowly away and leaves a taste of tangy honey upon your tongue, and the whole time the beer's as thick as silk.

Appears a pale golden slightly clouded Belgian ale here, this is pretty much the best American brewed Belgian ale around owned by Belgians tagged teaming with the La Chouffe folks to creat Gnomegang. Started by beer enthusiasts I basically love Ommegang. Head is fluffy white with fine, you guessed it Belgian style lacing. Aroma is spicy citric with hints of tropical fruit a very pleasant aromatic experience as a whole. Hints of pineapple and apricot very enticing with each sniff or use it as a reduction in your next sauce creation at home in the culinary kitchen. Effervescent body sent by the beer gods above, in truth well executed Belgian style ale I can't wait for the next Steel City Big Pour the only event that Ommegang attends in the Burgh currently.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a cloudy light orange color with 3 inches of white fluffy foam that is taking its time receding. There is some decent lacing down the glass as it falls

S - light grain along with a good amount of corriander and lemon zest. I seem to be picking up some belgian yeast spiciness as well

T - Thats a weird flavor. Alot of the yeast spiciness upfront then alot of banana in the middle finishing with a big kick of those spices again. The flavor is really strong and I'm not sure if I like it or not. It seems to stick around for awhile and it mellows nicely

M - medium bodied leaning toward heavy with some lively carbonation. Its crisp and zippy on the tongue and finishes dry although the spiciness sticks around for awhile.

D - Not bad flavor, though i'm not sure If i'd want more than a glass full.

Bottle from Perry's Liquor in Livermore, CA.

A - Poured a hazy yellow color with an off white head that leaves lacing behind

S - Is of spiced Belgian yeast with hints of fruit

T - Like the smell starts of with the spicy Belgian yeast then some fruit flavors come out a little sweet

M - This beer has a light body with high carbonation to it

O - This is a very enjoyable beer from two breweries that I like there's better beers out there from both of them but they came together to make a good tasting beer that's worth trying if you see it around

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a pale golden in color with a good but not long lasting head for what it is.
Smell is quite sharp, with the typical yeastiness but some almost acidic notes I cannot quite pinpoint to a fruit.
Taste is refreshing! A bit of an alcohol kick but it works well, and a good punch of what I would have to guess is granny smith apples...may be wrong.
Aftertaste is strongly banana.

Great beer!

A - The beer pours a really nice slightly cloudy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down slowly to a thin layer leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - The aroma is a mix of fairly strong yeast and fruit/citrus esters. There is also some nice malt and spices present as well.

T - Starts off with lots of yeast flavor and some light fruit and citrus flavors. Through the middle some banana flavor comes through alongside some stronger spices as well. The finish is a mix of banana, malt, and some spices that linger really nicely.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate lively carbonation. The beer feels really crisp and smooth. The finish is a nice mix of sweet fruit flavors and spices.

D - Very drinkable. The beer feels nice and complex and balanced from start to end. The 9.5% abv here is also pretty much hidden. The mix of fruits, spices, and yeast is really nice here.

Gnomegang | 750 ml. | 9.5% ABV | 2011

Brewer: Brewery Ommegang
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale (BSPA)
Glass: Ommegang chalice

Appearance:
Radiant honey-orange body, lackluster head and lacing. I would have given this a perfect score because the color is so beautiful under light, but the head and lacing really detract from it.

Aroma:
The alluring scent of tropical fruit wafts above the surface. Citrus and spices are also there.

Taste:
An intense spicy character permeates the first sip, dry and crisp. But then I'm shocked by the wave of juicy tropical fruits and citrus that rushes in to fill the gustatory chasm. The finish is full of pepper, coriander, and it's oh so dry, grassy, and arresting.

Mouthfeel:
It comes across as thin but very crisp. The carbonation is fierce, and the pepper singes the tongue. Mouthfeel is not its strong suit.

Harmony:
Overall, I am impressed by the intensity of flavor, if not the breadth of the experiene. The emphasis is on spicy, grassy flavors over the tropical fruit found in the nose. I tend to enjoy sweeter drinks by themselves and drier, spicier ones, like Gnomegang, with food.

Would I get it again?:
Yes, but there are many formidable competitors in the BSPA genre, that I like better.

Bottled: ?
Served: June 4, 2011

Price = $9.99 at the Whole Foods (NYC)

750 mL bottle courtesy of brees6221, thanks Ben! Pours a hazed gold color with a large-bubbled white head. Fades pretty fast and does not leave much lacing.

Nose is juicy tropical hops and a nice fruit-laden yeast aroma. Little bit chalky and the malts are light and grainy.

Taste throws off lots of yeast, bready and fruity. Alcohol is big and dry with a light hop bitterness on the finish. Hop flavor shows up a bit, herbal and leafy. Mouthfeel is soft and almost manages to be creamy - finely bubbled. Even though both breweries yeasts were used, I think the 'Chouffe is more distinctive and noticeable. Pretty smooth and drinks easier than a 9.5 BSPA should. Not a bad collab here, worthy of a test drive.

750mL bottle poured into snifter - thanks to phan869 for sharing

Pours a slightly hazed golden color with some bright yellow tones. A fluff of white head bubbles up, retains for a bit with some cloudy film and splotchy lacing.

Plenty of spice and fragrance in the nose, biscuit malt and dough, slight alcohol, fruit sweetness with raisin.

Floral hops and spice up front, followed by some tempering sweetness. Raisin and pear with some herbal hop qualities. Biscuit malts with some more sweet tones mix with a fairly boozy edge towards the finish.

Full medium body, higher carbonation, tingly and dry on the tongue. This reminds me of La Chouffe a bit, it drinks pretty well but I wasn't too into it.

Gnomegang 9.5% ABV, Belgian Strong Ale

A: Hazy yellow with lots of wheat particulates, huge carbonation from the bottle, after you wrestle open the draconian Ommegang cork that extends deep into the bottle. Moderate lacing and straw notes all around.

S: There is plenty of orange and lemon zest present with a nutmeg and/or holiday spice profile to it. There are some clove notes and musty belgian yeast that are expected from the style.

T: This beer has a huge bread profile with an expansive body that burns itself away with the alcohol profile. You get a honey with biscuit quality up front that subsides into a heat that tastes like chinook or perhaps just the unsupported alcoholic profile. The balance is precarious but well executed.

M: This beer has an incredible balance for the three batons it maintains in the air at all times. First and foremost a big wheat and malty character lays the groundwork for all of the sweet notes including banana and very starchy fruits. Finally the heat from the alcohol appears and drives a heated zambonie over your palate to await the next sip.

D: For a beer of this abv and character, this is dangerously dirnkable. If they sold this in 12oz bottles I would see it performing as a condescending older brother to any Blue Moon siblings. It shines most in its ambition and delivers in execution. I would be able to drink this throughout an entire game of Civilization, which is to say I would pass out because 5 hours of Gnomegang is just too much gnome for any man.

Narrative: PING! PING! PING! Garnab loved his craft and it showed. He surveyed the blade of the battleaxe with pride and rolled its haft in his calloused hands. The blade was competent and durable, yet light and precise. FSHHH! The iron sizzled upon being cast into the cool water. "GARNAB GET IN HERE!" his supervisor called from down the hall of the Morgrem guild. Garnab slid into the chair daintily, an impressive feat for a gnome of his heft and weight. "Garnab, we have all been noticing you around here, your fine work, your precise castings, and impeccable attention to detail." Garnab grunted lightly and carressed the chain of precious silver that he painstakingly created years earlier. "That is why you have been promoted to assistant vice-Gnome of the Belbgaar foundry." He nodded silently and exited, his cool stride demonstrating his poise and power within, Garnab was going places.

Big thanks to Sean via Wakefield... black body with some dark brown fringes, no carbonation... strong syrupy nose of molasses and raisins, the oak is really smooth adds a nice spicey note to the beer, some alcohol, but in your face and strong... the taste is too sryupy, raisins, lots of char, a bit of vanilla on the finish... worth trying, better than its parts

This beer pours a hazy yellow color, with not to much of a head. The aroma was full of spices, and almost a wheat smell. The taste had a very strong spice taste, in a strong pear taste. The taste was strong and bold, and the alchool while not noticable did make a hit. Overall it was a good beer, but I was just expecting more.

750 mL bottle into a goblet. No bottled on/expiration date on label.

Appearance: Honey golden color with fine carbonation and a billowing white head that leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Sweet orange dominates the nose. Spicy, musty aroma from the yeast and a sharpness which may be either hop or alcohol.

Taste: Tangy fruits (citrus, richer flavors along the lines of plum and cherry) alcohol adds warmth and a bit of punch. Mellow and sweet through the body, with spice from the yeast mixing with the malts.

Mouthfeel: Heavy and rich without being syrupy.

Overall: Lovely and rich brew from Ommegang and Chouffe. Highly recommended for a special occasion.

A: Smooth yellow with an orange tint. Highly opaque. One finger white head with moderate lacing.

S: Orange and lemon zest, bananas, grapefruit and Belgian yeast. Some hints of pepper and creamy malts.

T/M: Not far from the nose. Sugared fruits (listed above), Belgian yeast bite, mildly bitter hops and smooth/bread-like malts. Tastes almost like a bock-style brew. 9.5% ABV is beautifully tapered in the body of the beer as the slight burn of alcohol brings out more flavor. Sweet, malty/bready, fruity. Tangy, almost sour mouthfeel. Well-balanced for a Belgian strong ale. Medium body, medium carbonation.

D: A good Belgian. This is definitely the brew you're looking for if you like this style.

A: Pours a hazy orange fluid that sticks to the glass each time you take a sip. Leaves a minimal head.

S: Smells of citrus, plums, banannas, hops and the alcohol is very potent. The smell in very pungent in the nose.

T-M: Has a very sweet taste of what you would see in a fruit basket. The alcohol is apparent in the taste that adds nicely to the flavors. The fluid coats the palate very well and goes down to the gut very smoothly.

O: Overall, this is a good beer. Would I have this beer again... Sure! Very tasty and an appealing.

Gnomegang by Brewery Ommegang New York, Belgian Strong Pale Ale 9.5% alcohol. This Corked and Caged 750ml bottle poured into a oversized wine glass.

A- Produces a fluffy off white head that slowly desipates to a half inch leaving patchy lacing on the rim of the glass. Hazy orange and firery red when light passes through it, quite the spectacle.

S- Smells of rich and musky Belgian yeasty notes followed by sweet over ripe pears. Light notes of sharp alcohol sting the nose.

T-M- Taste upfront is a yeast and alcohol flavored warmth. As the beer warms up I found that the flavors of pear, bannanas, and tangy hop bite come into place. All and all this is a yeasty Belgian Strong Pale Ale at it prime, that being said... I love it! With its multi complexities of fruit flavors, to its musky yeast notes, and alcohol warmth that is what makes this a winner in my book. Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated with bubbles that tingle the tongue with help of the alcohol. Smooth with a sharp punch.

Overall this beer is everything it promises in the long run. A strong Belgian Pale that produces the lasting flavor and feel that they have for years and years... cheers!

On tap at Bodega. 10oz served in a tulip.

Appearance
A slightly hazed gold with a small cap of pure white foam. Lacing here and there.

Aroma
Lots of nice yeasty esters. Very spicy and floral. Apples and pears add a juiciness to it that really bulks up the aroma.

Taste
Very spicy and yeasty. Almost too much so. There is a little bit of that band aid flavor that really intense Belgian yeast can give off, but it is mostly blanketed by floral and juicy hops.

Mouthfeel
At first this beer was way too cold. I had to wait quite a while before I could fully enjoy it. The mouthfeel is dry and fluffy with a lively carbonation.

Overall
Not a bad beer, but the yeast flavors are very strong. I'd like to see it toned back so that the juiciness of the fruity hops can shine.

Pours a lightly hazed and bubbly golden yellow, pillow of soft white head. Scent is pale, light watery and sweet fruits, belgian yeasts and faint hints of bread and spice. Taste slightly more aggressive then scent, watery and sweet fruits are the start (apple, citrus and tropical all present), malt is lightly sweet and bready, standard belgian yeast notes in moderation, some spice. Medium bodied, smooth. A nice, easy drinking beer that hides its ABVs very well.

Aroma of light tropical fruit, Belgian yeast, apple, lemon and light caramel malts.

Tastes of Juicyfruit gum and cinnamon up front followed by Belgian yeast, cloves, apple and light caramel malts.

13$ 750mL Bottle from Decicco's Ardsley

Poured into Delirium Tulip.

A: Pours a hazy orange, with decent layer of white head. Quick swirl reconstitutes a nice layer with ease.

S: Sugar and Belgian yeast up front. Slight fruit notes but cant distinguish, definitely a BSPA. Alot going on in the smell, vvn.

T: Tastes like the aroma, there are clove and spicy flavors up front followed by some candy sweetness and light fruit notes. Taste falls off for me because the sweetness starts to accumulate. Not tasting the alcohol that some of the other reviews are commenting on. After having a few it seems like the flavors clash a bit for me and kind of cancel each other out.

M: Good body with high carbonation, crisp feel but doesnt add to the taste like some beers with nice mouthfeels do.

O: Decent beer, though I have to say I prefer the individual parts as opposed to the sum in this case. Nice to try but not as good as I'd hoped it would be.If not for the accumulation, this would be an A- or A beer IMO. Possibly tastes better on draft or soon after bottling.

First campfire beer of the year!

Hazy, translucent daisy yellow with a goldenrod center. Pillowy white head is fairly reserved compared to some of the foamy monsters that reside within this style but I like being able to walk away with a glass full of beer, not foam. Splashy lace and good retention.

A little spicy and farmy at first whiff but that soon settles in with a sweet, floral apricot-ness. Peach fuzz and Wherther's Orange Creamsavers. Like lemoncello but with apricots instead of lemons.

Sweet start, clean fade and an extremely satisfying sweet/clean resurgence after each swallow. Fruit basket includes juicy golden pear, white grape, and peach. Appropriately the alcohol is well hidden.

A collaboration ale that actually lives up to the billing!
