COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style strong golden. This Belgian inspired ale is pure evil! The result of an easy drinkability despite being nearly 8% in alcohol. Gargamel, cast a spell of delicious deception. 31 IBU.

gold color; crisp hops and Belgian yeast aroma; a very drinkable golden ale with mild Belgian yeast notes; well balanced with slightly sweet malt and crisp, floral hoppy bitterness

Kinz (3257) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
From pitcher at tap takeover at RVC. Poured a clear gold, good head. Aroma was pale malts, pear esters, some Belgian yeast driven spice. Flavor matched, still oddly fruity with pear, sweetish finish. Not bad, but wasn’t working for me.

Light florals and some booze. Tinge of wood. Pours blonde with a little head on cask at Meridian pint.

nearbeer (3623) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 6, 2014
12 oz. bottled Mar 18, 2014. Says 7.0%, not 7.8. Pours clear golden with a meringue like foam that tries to last, but peters out. Nose is toasted corn, honey and dry grass. Taste is the same, with some apple, pear, menthol hard candy and ethanol. Medium body is to the sweet side but finishes crisp. Low, smooth carbonation is nice. Wish I could have bought a single instead of six.

strongpieman (1465) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Draft. Clear, golden beer with a tall white head. Surprisingly subtle taste and aroma -- not much to note especially for the strength. A decent beer but not much memorable to run back to.

A bit too much on the spicyness side. Otherwise, a nice golden ale with a ton of head and belgian yeast aroma.

decaturstevo (4948) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Pale yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is light fruity esters and rock candy. Fruity pear like flavor with sweet malt and rock candy. Mild bitter finish. pretty solid

Growler from Town Center Market in Hyattsville MD. Very tasty, clean color. Nice to sip fairly quickly.

pulli005 (4) - - MAY 15, 2014 does not count
Somewhat light with a robust bouquet and layers of flavor. Gorgeous golden color. Higher abv. Starts like champagne, rolls to a slight hops edge, and ends like an American Classic beer. Fun and floral without controversy. Yer grandpa would love it, too.

On draft at the Mad Fox Maibock festival 2014. Pours a clear gold with off white head. Light malty nose. Tropical fruit flavors. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation.
