I opened the bottle of Xtra Gold on my coffee table, turned around to grab a glass and within a minute the carbonation had overflowed the bottle and onto the table. The bubbles continued to foam out and over the bottle and make a horrible mess of my coffee table.
The rest of the experience with the Xtra Gold was great! Very flavorful, complex, and delicious! The best Captain Lawrence brew I’ve had yet!

(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Not much else to it. Some hop bitterness in the flavor but predominantly fruit, honey and yeast with some spice coming up at the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with minimal white head. Aroma of fruit, Belgian yeast and a little burnt diesel. Taste is light bitter. Earthy herbal and citrus with Belgian yeast and some butterscotch. Full bodied with a somewhat thin and slick texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, pretty darn good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2006 vintage. Hazy golden-orange with a ton of floaties. Excellent aroma - floral, orange juice, lychee. Flavour - not as good, bit past it's prime, but still some nice lychee notes and moderate sweetness. Quick finish with nice pineapple juice notes. Ended up enjoying it more than I expected from first impressions.

On tap at the Blue Monkey. Aroma is light grass, a little banana, citrus, and fresh rolls. Pours golden with a nice fluffy head and a wispy film after. Taste is great citrus, grass, slight wheat, banana, pineapple, and a nice bready finish. Drank two in a row and only then discovered the 10%. Delicious triple.
