COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of a Belgian Strong Golden Ale. A healthy amount of wheat gives this beer a very smooth mouthfeel that is accompanied by a fruity yeast character. Dark Belgian Candy is added to the boil which contributes to this beer’s light body and complex flavor. European hops team up with Juniper berries added late in the boil to offer a soft, subtle spiciness.

Bill Becker (771) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Pours a hazy straw gold with an inch of foam after settling down. Smells fruity with notes of candi sugar, wheat, and pepper. It has some tartness. Peppery, a candi sugar sweetness, fruity like the rind of oranges, a bit tart. Not bad. Light bodied with light carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable beer.

scoth (662) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Can. Pours deep gold with a thin beige head, moderate retention. Aromas of caramel, hay, banana, pepper, biscuit, a little cooked vegetable note. Medium-light body, velvety, mild carbonation. Lightly sweet, a hint of citrus, light bitter finish. Seems a little off, not enough to ruin the batch, but not as nice as it could be.

TaktikMTL (7008) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
Canette de 12 oz achetée chez Beverage Warehouse (Winooski, VT) au coût de 1,75$. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est orangée opaque avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel avec une pointe de levure belge et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’orange en arrière goût. (Rating #6552)

This was poured into a mini-tulip. The appearance was a decent looking hazy bronzed yellow to orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foaminess that quickly dissipated leaving barely any lacing. The smell had a sweet dried apricot aroma rolling about a little bit of light spice. The taste was basically the same thing with a big dry semi-spiced fruity aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing some wheat to display a little bit of body. Overall, for a Belgian styled strong ale, honestly, it’s a bit under par. Only have again if fresh.

Can. To be far I had this one after a North Coast Brother Thelonious which may have influenced my rating. Golden in color with a medium white head. Aroma is subtle spice and just a touch of fruit. A little disappointed in the taste. Taste some coriander, grains and just a tad of sweetness.

SBWF 2015. Hazy/cloudy golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Malty yeasty aroma, caramel, floral, some grapes. Malty spicy yeasty flavor, sugary, caramel, some glue and fruits. Not my favorite.

Golden and lightly cloudy. Aroma of hay and spices , a bit peppery. Strange off flavor that I can?t place. Maybe formaldehyde. Really awful. I’m hoping I just got a bad bottle because I can’t imagine anyone enjoying this. I’m dumping the rest.
