Gnomegang ~ Ommegang

Appearance: hazy orange – a solid cloud of haze. White head fades into a thick collar. Swirls thicker along edges with no lace but a thin film lingers.

Nose: yeasty. A tropical mélange of oranges, bananas, aloe, papaya, pineapple. Hand-kneaded dough for some lovely sweet rolls. Pureed raspberry and strawberry. Lemon sorbet. Playful.

Palate: doughy and yeasty. Green and freshly plucked and peeled green bananas. Papaya, guava, aloe, and orange in the back. Seamless procession of flavor. Raw tropical skins in the finish, sweet bitter fleshy. Lemon-lime. Lovely. Spice in the back – white pepper, grains of paradise; ticklish.

Final Thoughts: yum and yum. Ommegang never fails to delight and impress with their Belgian inspired beers. A little slice of far far away in Cooperstown, New York makes for a destination none should miss. If you come across any Gnomegang in bottle or draft, be sure to grab a quaff or three.
