COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong in flavor and alcohol yet light in color and malt character this style has the warming presence of alcohol

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is clear dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), trace yeast (mold), with notes of banana, clove, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A boring, watery, filtered, simple attempt at a Belgian (homebrew Duvel clone recipe?). Full Sail should probably stick to hop-bombs.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2005
Light golden shade, covered by a mostly lasting white creamy head. Pretty well integrated yeastiness for an america beer. Gentle phenols attach themselves to honeyed cereals and banana/mango biscuitiness. A slice of oxidation passes close to ruining it, but the damage is not done yet, the flavors still lively, lifted up by a medium to full body with full carbonation. Not the most attenuated example and tartish in its yeastiness, but its highly drinkable.

after4ever (6062) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Bomber. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head that falls to film as quickly as it possibly can. Slight nutty aroma to go with a fair effort at a wild Belgian yeast nose. Some pears and nuts in the palate. Medium body, almost-fizzy carb. This is fairly drinkable and pleased many co-workers this afternoon at an impromptu tasting they asked me to arrange. Iíll buy it again someday. Hoping to see it on draft.

douglas88 (5800) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 11, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Bomber from the state wine store. Pours a light gold with a small white head. The aroma is mostly banana and some citrus. The taste is mostly a sweet citrus and banana, yeast, and spices. Overall, quite drinkable but doesnít stand out.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Tap at Brouwers. Gold with a thin head and big bubbly carbonation. Clove and banana in the aroma. It really reminded me of a Bavarian wheat. Very yeasty. Light and fruity flavor. Very smooth. Very carbonated. I enjoyed this one more than most apparently.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Clear caramel color, light head, mellow lacing. Nose of musky hops and sour malts. The flavor is balanced, bland and musky. The finish is akin to horribly dirty laundry. Donít know why this didnít work for me but it just didnít. The saving grace was the absence of alcohol taste.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 17, 2006
This Belgian Golden Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is apples, bananas, alcohol and sugar. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of banana and apple flavors as well as some unrefined sugar. Kind of overly sweet and a little bland. Strangely it reminds me a little bit of a malt liquor, I mean it in no way tastes like one, but it has that high gravity kind of feel to it. Perhaps a bit of aging will mellow this one, as itís a little harsh and one sided right now. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Sampled via 22-oz bomber and shared by Akevitt. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a thin white ring. Aroma of light roasted malt, earthy spice and plenty of floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, with a a spicey yeast and light roasted malt flavor. Finish is smooth and then slightlly tart with a hint of yeast in the aftertaste.
