Ommegang Gnomegang

I wrote: "This beer initially tasted bitter and afterwards the bitterness would come and go. In any case, it's mostly tasty, despite being about two years old." 10:12 PM

On 20131226, I double-checked my claim that the beer is about two years old. To begin, I acquired the bottle when I purchased a gift pack containing this bottle of beer, a bottle of Hennepin, a bottle of Three Philosophers, and an Ommegang cup. I checked my photo record and the oldest picture of the cup being used was taken on 20111201. I also remembered that I bought the gift pack after moving into my new apartment. Finally, being a gift pack, it would have been available to buy in November at the earliest. In conclusion, I would safely assume that I bought the gift pack in November 2011.

Website Information:

The cheerful gnomes of Belgian farmstead Brasserie d 'Achouffe dropped by the Brewery Ommegang farmstead brewery in the summer of 2010.

In appearance, Gnomegang is a rich, translucent gold, with a big, fluffy white head. The high-carbonation is readily apparent. The nose focuses on distinctive clove aromas, combined with yeasty fruitiness typical of Chouffe beers. Flavors include ripe fruit, clove, light caramel, non-cloying candy sweetness, smooth maltiness, and well-balanced hopping. Mouthfeel offers a big, round body with full, fine carbonation. The finish is dry and warming, lingering gracefully.

9.5% ABV
