COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light-hued beer was inspired by Belgian Tripels and Golden Strong ales. A high percentage of Pilsner malt and a new yeast strain we used present a lemon character in the aroma. This citrus quality carries into the flavor and finishes with a slight tartness. This beer is well balanced and smooth, making it easy to drink and sightly deceptive because of its high ABV.

notalush (5070) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Tap - another one-dimensional, overly sweet, overly alcoholic take on a Belgian tripel/golden strong - strong honey, moderate lemon, light pepper, moderate floral notes, a touch of moneral - other than that and a lot of apparent alcohol, not a ton happening - disappointing from this brewery.

beerbastard (736) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 10, 2013
750 bottle that pours a lite straw colored pale yellow. A lite malt aroma mixed with some citrus and a little honey in the background. Sweet flavors of malts and lemon. Dry finish even a little astringent. Not my idea of a Strong Belgian Ale, more Saison like.

NachlamSie (2830) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Goblet at Cheeky Monk. Pours gold with good lacing. Very estery nose, but not over the top. Notes of bubblegum, peppers, citrus and a little alcohol. Palate is robust and goes with the sugars well. Itís got a sweet kick to it, but dries out rapidly with spiced, peppery flavors. Itís a warming beer with noticeable alcoholic presence, but not in a negative way. Tasty, powerful take on a Belgian beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5136) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2013
From the September 2013 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a large foamy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy sugar, ripe golden fruits, bubblegum, bread dough and passion fruit. The flavor was tangy and sweet sugar, golden fruits, bubblegum, bread dough and passion fruit. Long tangy sugar, passion fruit and golden fruit finish. Only a touch boozy with a moderately thick and full body. Quite nice.
