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.

My buddy Nathan has recommended this to me more than once, but I simply hadn’t come across it in my visits to NYC until now. A good recommendation it turned out to be. My pour didn’t look too amazing (a slightly hazy light, bright gold with a tiny head), but the nose showed lemongrass, orange, tangerine, hay, and some well-integrated spices. Bright is the word that most quickly came to mind. Taste is zingy, with a crisp hop bitterness. Unique--like a great tripel without the alcohol. I want to wake up on a crisp, clear sunny fall day and start drinking this.

Bottle. Tastes sweet, cool, crisp, fruity like cider. Then leaves a malty aftertaste. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like fermentation and cider.

McGarnigle (555) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Six pack. Golden Belgian-style ale with the yeast doing all the work. Coriander lemony-spiciness to it, maybe some orange and an Edam cheese aftertaste or something like that. Not sweet. Kind of crisp. Carbonation seems just right, adding to the crispness without overwhelming. Good American attempt at a Belgian.

Excellent blonde Belgian. Coriander and banana notes with just enough hops to keep the sweeter flavors balanced.

Light floral aroma in beginning. Pours golden clear with the name says. Well-balanced, but light Belgian. Some lacing, no head. Booze in the aroma. Finishes bitter with slight astringency. Tap at Blue Monk.
