COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brainless Belgian-Style Golden Ale is has a rich and complex malt flavor balanced with a little bit of spicy noble hops and strong influences of fermentation esters from the Belgian yeast used. Various Belgian like Rock Candies, hops and grains are employed to express variations within the style. Deceivingly drinkable, some liken theses ales to the Devil sneaking up on you, so consume responsibly.

Bomber: A wonderfully fruity Belgian aroma, banana, clove, bubble gum, and a bit yeasty. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin white head that doesn’t stick around for long. Taste is really nice, banana, nicely fruity, and just tastes good. Palate is medium mouthfeel, with an aftertaste of light yeast and fruit. Overall, Nice I like it. Cheers!

ben4321 (3863) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Shop Rite, 8/8/12

Aroma: The nose of this one has some funky yeast, spice/clove, and some citrus/orange
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small, fizzy head that leaves spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is medium sweet, mostly malt, fruit, and spice flavors, with some subtle underlying funk
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), average carbonation, a nice feel, and a lightly spicy finish
Overall Impression: This one had exactly 100 rating, well, someone had to screw that up, might as well be me! As for the beer, I enjoyed it. They did a nice job here, this one had a lot going on and some interesting complexity. Definitely worth trying.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Pours a clear gold with a finger of frothy bone white head that leaves some light lacing in the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, straw, sweet and pale malts, mild peppery spice and herbs, candi sugar, and dried fruits. The flavor is exactly the same, but so clean and smooth. Maybe some more citrus, too. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, clean mouthfeel. Liked this one a lot, and it works better than the Peach and Cherry versions.
