Draught@Redbones. Very nice. yeasty, but soft, with some lovely citrus rind and wild flower aromas. Palate shows some bitterness and a very soft refreshing acidity. Citric, slightly estery. A very pleasant Belgian pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
GABF 2007. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and quite spicy - among others I pick up coriander. The flavor is sweet with notes of coriander, leading to a dry spicy and slightly wheaty finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear golden-light orange color. The head was white and left some lace on the glass. Unusual aroma that included the likes of apple cider and a bit of honey. Not what I expected. Light to medium bodied. Delicately sweet up front with mild bitterness at the end. Fruit forward flavors including apple, lime, and subdued orange. The fruit flavors were supported by some spices, predominantly clove, which were initially muted, but grew in intensity somewhat toward the end. I wasn’t all that impressed with this beer at first, but it grew on me a bit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
GABF 2005: Golden hue (I would hope so with the name) and a small head. The aroma is yeasty and showed some mild fruit and barrel esters in addition to belgian candi sugar. The taste was grassy and leafy hops with a touch of tart apple and firm banana followed by a sugary background. Lots of biscuit and chalky feel on the palate. Not too bad but not really up to part with their other offerings.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of hops and spices. Flavor of hops and spices. The body is light with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. I doesn’t feel belgian much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
clear dark gold, wispy beige head, streaks of lace, light spicy aroma, nice hop flavor on a dry malt base with some spicy esters adding complexity rather than balance, a touch of candy sweetness comes and goes, the spices give way to robust hop flavor and a long bitter finish, called an abbey IPA it alternates between the two rather than marries them,

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draught) Sampled at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Pours a thin, white head that dissipates immediately. The body is mild amber. Nose has a tinge of Flemish Sour. Flavour is mildly spiced and hoppy with a watered-down malt finish. Rather boring.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly cloudy golden body with a small white head. Light-medium oily body. Not a very tasty beer at all. Generic half roasted malts, a little sweetness, a little citrusy hops, a little bitterness. I didn’t feel any of the advertised wild yeast that many reviewers got. I was looking forward to drinking a Golden Ring but ended-up regretting it. Same goes with many men wearing a golden ring.
