2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is a crisp malt scent with a hint of skunk. Color is golden with a lot of sediment floating around, looks like fish food. Carbonation is very active with a very thick dense head. Taste is light and metallic. Starting with a light body it goes down with a crisp. Finish is a light mildly sweet malt taste with a faint fruity flavor. After taste leaves you with a metallic taste and a little skunk. Not a very good Belgian brew and not something I would seek out again

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A bit smaller than a 12oz bottle. I liked the label and saved it for a Fall/Halloween poster I’m putting together. Drink by 2/09 I think. Clear and Golden pour with TONS of carbonation and a light head. Crisp Belgian aroma with alcohol and yeast being rather forward. Hints of spice and fruit – generally clove and banana. Light candy flavor with alcohol, and very light fruit. I also noted ginger and pepper. Unfortunately (like most goldens) this is not a flavor I care for. Medium body with sharp carbonation (if you know what I mean – like drinking cola fast). Again, not a fan in general of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: golden color. Medium and white head, lasting.
Aroma: herbal spicy from hops, with coriander and some mentholated aromatic reminiscences. Also, the sweet aroma from pale malts.
Flavor: lasting yeasty start. Progress of the pale malts and a herbal-spicy touch from hops; with medium, lasting dryness and slight metallic touch. Bitter fruitiness like grapefruit. Herby and yeasty aftertaste.
Palate: medium body and high carbonation.
Remark: balanced and nice beer, but without high-points.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - Pours golden with lots of suspended yeast flakes. It has a mild yeast and malt aroma. It tastes of pale malt, yeast, and has more hops bitterness than one might expect. It’s very bubbly on the palate and struck me as a little watery. The finish is dry. While this beer is alright, I just didn’t think there was much to it. It’s drinkable, but at $4 for a small bottle at the liquor store, not worth getting again.
