Subtle sweetness with a clean finish. The smooth Pilsner malt and delicate European hops create a unique twist on a golden ale. Refreshingly light in body and delightfully thirst quenching, Ida is sure to satisfy.

Not much Belgian going on here. This is a pretty straight forward blonde with a weird aftertaste. Not great.

jandd1983 (3832) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Sampled at the brewery. It poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma was of fruits, malts and hops. The taste was similar with more fruits, melons, malts and hops. Tasty.

bytemesis (6731) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Tap. Pours hazy golden, small white head, some lacing. Aroma is light grass, bread, honey, hay. Flavor is medium sweet, grassy, hints of hay and honey, light bitterness, white pepper. Medium body, fairly low carbonation. Sweeter than I usually like, but it kind of works here.

Draft at BNA. Pours hazy bright gold with a smooth, fizzy white head. Tastes like sweet corn, some citrus hops, and doughy bready malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet corn, bready doughy malt, and faint citrus hops.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2014
On tap at Bearden Beer Market. Bright yellow, with a thin white head. Surprisingly hoppy, piney aroma. Taste is toasty, bready, then a grassy, piney hops. I did not detect much "Belgian" character, to be honest...

nearbeer (4881) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pint on tap. Hazy golden pear color with a ring of bubbles. Nose is resin, honey, clove and orange. Tastes of orange zest, resin, honey, spicy clove and some dry wheat on the finish. LIght-medium body has medium-high carbonation and leans to the dry side.

Deep yellow pour with creamy white head. Belgium yeast & floral hop notes. Sweet spicey malt start with a papery finish. Medium body...nice smooth carbonation. Nice beer complex.
