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.

750 ml bottle from adnielsen. Thanks, Aaron. Pours a lighter gold sunshine hue. Near transparent pour with a bright big white head that dies down, carbonation driven as it dies to a ringer and laces small. Aromas are grass and gentle florals, a bit of dry grain, gentle sweet dough and fruit mix with a touch of yeasty life. Some straw, gentle citrus, and florals. Initial is much sweeter than the nose let on, doughy and estery fruit, some honeycrisp apples and honey. Gentle dryness, florals, and earth. Cereal grains, wet paper, and vanilla. Touches of dryness, mellow hops try to muster some strength, but overall this becomes a bit of a sweet mess, on par with my feelings on a American Tripel trys. Pils malt, a bit of spice, estery fruit and honey mix with sweet dough. Meh.

mcberko (6880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of Belgian candied sugar, bubblegum sweetness, some funk, banana and some doughy malts. Flavour brings out candied sugar, banana, medium funk, loads of doughy malts, a little yeast, and light fruitiness. Very complex and light/ soft on the palate, with a subtle complexity. Highly drinkable, without any ABV noticeable. Great stuff.

Leighton (11642) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - big thanks to Jack. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a fine, white cream head. Mild citrus fruit nose, some doughy malts, lemon and tangerines. Mig sweet flavor with some yeasty white bread and ripe citrus. Full bodied average to heavy, creamy carbonation. Warming finish with more doughy white bread, yeast. Big beer with a fairly sweet character, though still very drinkable.

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle split with a few friends. The pour’s deep gold with a large white head. The nose is spice, esters, some banana, biscuit, and bubblegum sweetness. The taste is banana nut bread, candy corn, earthy husk, some tart pear juice and ribbon candy. Slightly chalky yeast. Light finish, soft palate. Smooth drinking considering the weight on this. Overall, a nice tipple! Colorado’s producing some great stuff right now.
