22oz bottle purchased for $3.50 at Davidson;s. I really like some of Full Sail’s brewmaster reserve beers so I thought "why not?". I poured this into a Chimay chalice. It was a light yellow-orange with a small white head. It was a little cloudy. The smell was slightly medicinal. The taste was a little sour but also fruity. I tasted banana and bubblegum. the alcohol was not noticeable at all. Pretty decent beer but i have no idea how it does against other beers in the style.

Golden pour, small white head. Aroma is very malty, some old orange juice, coriander and yeast. Flavor continues with some overripe oranges, coriander, light caramel and some yeast. Ok.

Sampled in a 22oz bottle. A really nice crisp drink. Not what I would think as a summer brew but drinks nice and was very nice in the winter. Pours light brown with little head. Very full bodied. Great malts.

Actually smells somewhat wheaty. Clear orange but with floaties. The first thought with flavor is that this must have a lot of alcohol, as it shines through. Some nice citrus and floral hops, and definitely lots of belgian sugar, it’s okay, but seems too strong.

22 oz. bottle. Vintage 2009. Pours a thin short lived off white head, with minimal lacing, over a hazy, golden SRM 7) body.......nose is light lemon, clove, coriander......taste is pear, apple, mild pineapple, finishing with light hop tartness and spice.....mouth feel is medium, carbonation high, alcohol nicely hidden. This is a reasonable example of a Belgian Golden Strong Ale It is not as spicy as a Triple nor as sweet, and the alcohol is not as hot..
