Ommegang Gnomegang Blonde Ale

Mar 12, 2014

The dictionary describes a gnome as “one of a species of diminutive beings, usually described as shriveled little old men, that inhabit the interior of the earth and act as guardians of its treasures.” Not exactly flattering stuff. But the gnome’s image is about get a boost in the form of a beer: Gnomegang.

New York’s Brewery Ommegang says this Belgian-Style Blonde Ale features “highly apparent clove aroma and flavor, followed by light caramel flavors with non-cloying candy sweetness.” Ommegang’s use of Chouffe yeast in primary fermentation is a first for the brewer, and a smooth drinkability is promised, along with a pretty potent ABV of 9.5%. That kind of power would surely put any shriveled little old man on his back—or your lawn.
