The Brü Revü – Ommegang Gnomegang

The Gnomegang is the final beer from my Christmas gift pack. It’s a collaboration beer between Ommegang and Brasserie d’Achouffe. I still have yet to try a d’Achouffe beer so this was my first, although not technically fully theirs. The Gnomegang was a Belgian Golden Ale in the same vein as Duvel. It poured a golden color with a generous fizzy head. There was plenty of sweet malts in the aroma balance by their trademark yeasts. The taste was bright and sweet with a hint of honey and plenty of that farmhouse flavor. I was really digging this one and was taking it down quickly. It hides its high alcohol content well and maintains its excellence as it warms. The Gnomegang may have been the best beer of the bunch and that is saying a lot. All of the Ommegang beers set very high standards and should be highly sought after.
