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.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2006
From the growler, one day old. Pours a hazy golden color, with a thin long-lasting white head. Aroma of wet hay, coriander, light hops. Similar to a white ale but fuller body. RIch and malty at first, giving way quickly to a sweet, almost honey flavor, peppery at times. Consistently great, always beckoning another taste. Absolutely delicious. Please distribute this to Massachusetts.

From tap. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild peachy and slight citrusy. Mild fruity, estery and slight bitter. Mild dry and herbal into a short malty finish.

Dorwart (2389) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Nice large bright white head of fine bubbles. Reduces to a rocky topped foam head. Light and airy aroma with some fresh cut grass, lemons, cereal grains and some paper. Color is a light gold. Crisp lemony flavor with some straw, wheat, a bit of sickly sweetness that you might find in a golden dopplebock. Some pear and apples from the belgian yeast too. Light and crisp. Finishes a bit sweet. A decent belgian golden.

JBPortland (925) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 3, 2014
12oz bottle pours clear pale gold with a finger of head. Nose is soft round spicy hay, banana, touch of citrus peel, some grain, apple, peppery yeast. Taste is clean, well balanced yeast spice and some soft grain and light bread, peppery hay, touch of wild grass. Finish is dry, spice, corn flakes, grain, belgian yeast. Well done, simple yet enjoyable Belgian style.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
This ale poured a light cloudy yellow colour with next to no head. Not a good egg smell. High carbonation with flavours of hops, wieners, yeast and cloves. Thin mouthfeel. Finish is lightly bitter with that Belgian yeast flavour lingering.

mcox90 (1588) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 19, 2014
12 oz. bottle, courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Poured a hazy straw color with a 1/2" white head and minimal lace. Belgian yeast and light spice aroma. Hint of clove. Taste hints at Belgian funk with bread dough. Some grapefruit and lemon zest. Interesting mix. Light in the mouth with aggressive carbonation on the tongue.

Transfer from BA review on 10-30-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a very hazy yellowish-orange color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, hanging on for quite some time before fading away to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is nice and Belgian like with lots of grainy and wheaty malt and a big level of a yeasty smell. Along with these aromas comes other common Belgian smells with a nice lemon citrus, a good level of grass and banana, as well as some lighter spice aromas of clove and coriander. Overall the aroma is quite inviting. Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit malt flavor as well as some grassy and yeasty flavors straight from the start. There is a bit of sweetness of lighter fruits (tangerine and grape) as well as a lighter spice flavor of clove. As the taste advances the bready and sweet flavors remain relatively constant, with just a hint of a banana flavor joining the tongue. While the majority of the flavors remain constant, the grassy flavors kick it up even more at the end and are accompanied by some more sour lemon flavors as well as a light herb to leave a more bitter grassy Belgian pale ale flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average to slightly chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The creamier body was quite nice for the yeasty, wheat, and grainy flavors of the brew, while the carbonation kept it rather refreshing and crisp. Rather nice overall. Overall – A decent Belgian Pale ale with a bit more grass and grain and a bit less banana and spice then the typical. Overall it is a bit drier in nature and a rather nice Belgian Pale ale to give a go too.

Pours a pale straw yellow. Thin light head fades away quickly. Faint citrusy nose. Dry across the palate through the finish, and it lingers. Classic Belgian white spices. Great beer for a warm summer evening. Nicely done.

SetauketBrewer (52) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Like the name says, pours a beautiful bright golden color. Thin white head that laces the glass. Very yeasty aroma with notes of corriander spice. Typical belgian flavors or spice and citrus with a slight bready backbone. A little thin on the swallow.
