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.

Light yeast aroma. Clove like. Some citrus. Pours golden with a big head. Taste is a bit sweet, lots of spice flavor and a bit of citrus. Low carb body but light.

On tap @ Mudville 9. As the name suggests this is a golden colored one, soft blurry and a tiny quickly islandy shattered off-white head on the top. Smells nice. Kinda sweetish and mild yeasty. There’s some sweet tones of fruits without me being able to name them. The same goes for the taste really. It’s really soft on the bubbles and it has a mild oily texture in the mouth. Sweetish mild yeasty. There’s apricots and strawberries. Funky? Yeah, I do believe it is. Like it. 10.06.2015

This is qn excellent hoppy Belgian. It’s just a touch sweet with a great melding of floral hops and fruity yeast. It’s fairly full bodied but still drinkable with a crisp pop of bitterness in the finish. This is one you could drink all day.

NikkTwist (2675) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2016 Draft at The Irish Pol. Mostly clear gold pour with a slim tight white top. Belgium malts with American hops. Lots of lace. Catty aroma. Yeasty. Light amber fruit. Simply not working for me. UPDATE: Couple months later again at the Irish Pol. Rated poorly (2.7) before, bumping it up a bit because that malt feels fuller now and the body is creamy. The catty aroma has (mostly) disappeared. Better but still not a favorite for me. Could be a bad keg.

12 oz. Bottle. Clear gold color with a medium white head. Aroma has some subtle fruits and mild yeasty spice/ black pepper. Flavor is pretty well balanced yeast spice and some soft grain and light bread, touch of pepper in the finish. Texture is dry and grainy. Proper carbonation levels giving a mild smoothness over the palate. Overall right to the style, it is what it should be.

MaBeer1972 (1792) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Single bottle. Pours out a slightly hazy medium golden color. Classic belgian yeast dominates the aroma and flavors. Citrus, apple and sweet malty character. Body is think, more like a triple than a 6 percent offering. Chewy texture. Filling.

tfontana (665) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Aroma is mild--mix of fruity esters and bubble gum. Appearance is hazy light yellow with greenish tinge, minimal foamy white ring of head with trace sparkle and no real lacing. Taste is moderately sweet banana with bubblegum and light spice. Palate is medium bodied with foamy texture but dominant palate feature is fizzy, stinging carbonation. Finish is dry and fruity. Overall, this seems to be overrated to me--prominent faults all around.
