COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don't let the golden color fool you - this isn't your father's lite beer! Brewed with imported German malts and US-grown hops, this beer is a full-flavored introduction to craft-brewed beer. We add the hops late in the boil, allowing you to enjoy the flavor and aroma of the hops without an aggressive bitterness. Sensory Profile: Aromas of orange, spice, and green grass. Clean malt-dominated flavor, with a subdued bitterness playing in the background of the aromas of this beer. Food Pairing: A great match with fish and chicken, both sautéed and grilled, especially with citrus and herbs preparations. Shellfish steamed in Liquid Gold is a match made in beer heaven.

This may be one of the worst I’ve ever tried. It smells like perfume, it tastes like perfume. I almost thought that it had gone bad, but the bartender and the manager assured me it was supposed to taste like this. I think I will pass.

3fourths (9108) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Draft at CL. Clear, bright gold body with a soft white head. Nose of halfway eggy dough and candy sugar (semi-sour) and halfway corn, hay and dried crackers. Some strange notes of cleaner or bleach, but somewhat soft and I think a result of the yeast. Flavor shows more of this eggy yeast character, some dryness, some pastiness and some other odd flavors. A husky sour grain/mash flavor throughout, even some lactic wheat notes. Strange beer, not really enjoyed as much as expected.

Pours a murky yellow into the glass with white head. Aroma is citrusy and spicy like coriander. Taste is like witbier but with more hop bitterness and less spice. Seems like they wanted to make a beer like a witbier. I don’t understand why they didnt just make one.

Draft at House of Brews. Very good. Pours slightly cloudy golden body. Aroma is like a lesser Fin du Monde. Taste is citrus, malt, and very smooth.

Gotmos got a keg of this last night for a party, which gave me the opportunity to rate this "properly." Since this beer is tap only drinking only 14-16oz in a bar can’t possibly provide enough of a sample to understand the beer. So I sat there trying to drink this beer from the beginning of the keg to the end, the really understand the nature of this brew. It pours well looking enough with a clear, bright golden color and a large strong head. The beer is definitely Belgian inspired with a nice yeast sweetness followed by peach skin and orange like flavors. The hops play a background role and contribute light citrus and light sweet hoppiness to back up the Belgian aspect. The none Belgian qualities are represented in a much cleaner malt profile. Its easy to drink, I mean I tried to sit for hours and drink the whole container so I could not "cheat": a rating out of it but eventually I had to pass out.
1/2 keg from Gotmos, mason jar.

Thanks to Spacecoyote’s crew at Weyerbacher for pouring this one. Pour out golden color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of lots of fruit, banana, yeast and some citrus. Taste is nice and well balanced, citrus, sweet fruits and some yeast and slight spice also.

Had it on tap the other night. There are some nice flavors, but unfortunately they are masked by just as many off flavors. The beer is too bitter for its own good.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Draft at CL. Pours a golden body with a light white head. Feels kinda sticky with a sweet malty aroma and some hop bitterness. Some earthy grassy flavors amongst the malt, a touch of citrus fruit as well. A solid choice whenever you at the brewery.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2008
On tap. Poured a slightly cloudy blond color. The aroma hinted of pears and malt to me. Thin mouthful, almost watery, which definitely detracted from the flavor for me. Has some nice belgian style notes in the finish, with some bitterness. Maybe I got a bad pour, and need another try, might re-rate at some point.
