4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale golden color, very carbonated, with a white rocky head. This beer begins with a Pilsner-esque taste and moves into more sweet, Belgian yeast flavors. Very enjoyable.

Fluffy rocky head. Thick lacing. Golden pale color. Beautiful brew.
Sweet apple smell, slight pale malt with Belgian yeast and alcohol smells.
Smooth crisp taste. Belgian yeast taste with alcohol warming and nice carbonation tingle.
This is a great beer. I hope I come across this again often.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is the bar for all other Belgian golden ales. Pours a very pale golden color with a massive rocky head. Flavors are nice and complex for a golden. You get your typical Belgian esters done in a good way. Almost over-carbonated though... itís very sharp on the tongue due to itís extremely high carbonation. If youíre in the mood for a belgian but donít want all the complexity of a quad then reach for this golden. Itís very good.

Almost killed my friend when I popped the bottle. Anyways, poured a golden color with an enormous frothy head, too big to drink out of. Sweet, yeasty, carbonated smell, pretty carbonated, with a sweet yeasty taste. Pretty unique stuff. Just finished and my entire glass is laced white as if it were covered in snow. Enjoyed it with both discerning friends and good-looking strangers.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A really nice Belgian, this one poured from the bottle with a beautiful thick white head. Nice golden color and the head remained throughout the drinking. Aroma was sweet and a tad yeasty with a touch of honey. Flavor was similar, typical Belgian sweetness but a somewhat sharp finish. Somewhat champagne-like, as others have mentioned, and the alcohol was noticeable in the aftertaste. Expensive, but a nice treat.

Pours bright yellow with big white head. Foam very hoppy and tasty. Malty taste. Some citrus too. Very fresh, I like it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of carbonation! and hop. Maybe some citrus; maybe honey? Refreshing and clean. Hazy golden color. Flavor of alcohol and yeast. Tiny bubbles on the top of the tongue. Starts sweet, but a nicely astringent hop finish. Itís not sweetly complex like a number of belgians - must be the pilsner malt.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. Thick white head, I mean thick thick thick. Long lasting as well. Nice flavor, and while 8.5, it doesnít seem too strong.
