Gnome is a great choice for Belgian beers. As opposed to many low-flocculating Belgian strains, this one flocculates well, creating crystal clear Belgian ales in a short amount of time. It tends to drop out of solution quickly after fermentation, clearing well. It produces peach and apricot esters with a Belgian phenolic character that can be manipulated through temperature. Good for use in hoppy Belgians, but Gnome can also be used to complement malt and caramel character in beers.
