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.

Tap. Clear golden with a frothy, off white head. Smells of citrus, lemon zest, spices and light yeast. Flavor is sweet citrus, spices, yeast. Medium bodied with a light warmth in the finish.

One of my favorites from Funkwerks. Deliciously dry and crisp. A delightful example of the style. Brewed in the same style as Duvel and it shows!

Golden in color. Aromas of pineapple and pear. Delicious Belgian esters, without being too malty and sweet. Great Belgian-Style Golden ale! Deceitfully powerful ;)

Bottle shared at Butler’s with Chris and Craig. Thanks so much, Craig. Pours a light yellow. Aroma is yeasty, some bubblegum. Some malt. Flavor follows, but falls flat a bit. Mild carbonation. Good beer.

bubbleflubber (2042) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Pours cloudy straw-golden into the glass, almost reminiscent of grapefruit juice, with a stiff fizzy head that dissipates to ring lacing. The nose is of yeasty esters, light sourdough, some barnyard and dank basement aromas, alongside a hint of ripe melon. Flavors of lemon, melon, light doughy notes, crackers and a hint of pepper finish with a combination of well-balanced tartness and lemon-pepper spice. The mouthfeel is almost like a carbonated juice, which helps the complexity and substance achieve an easy quaff to the palate. It hides the ABV superbly, which lends perfectly to its name, ’Deceit’, as this is easy-drinking, but doesn’t feel nearly as heavy as the ABV may suggest. Great for any time of day, as an afternoon sipper, an aperitif or nightcap. Really nice, in my opinion. Great brew!

wlajwl (4626) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Aroma is spices, pale malts and hints of earth and white bread. The flavor is spices, citrus, pale malts and a mix of alcohol and slight liquor in the finish.

Bottle. Hazy yellow with one finger head. Lightly sweet and fruity, quite a bit of yeast. Light booze.

swesson (297) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2015
From a bomber. Pours a bright golden hue just as expected for a Belgian of this genre. Makes a frothy white head with millions of micro bubbles that slowly dissipate over a few minutes. A bit of lacing but not much. Aroma is of lemon and pear and a touch of vanilla. As with most Belgians this one is quite effervescent. Tastes of malt and citrus and is deceptively high in ABV so savor slowly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[ Bottle ][ 355mL ][ adnielsen ][ BIF ][ Tulip Flute ][ 5.1.15 ]
>> Chill hazed straw pour, weak foam. Spicy pear nose, green plant, spicy esters, phenolic, pretty nice for style. Taste is bubbly, small sugar, spiced pear, tannic. Dry, slight paper, pretty solid Tripel.

travita (4418) - Frisco, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle at the BTBF. The look is clear, golden in color, decent white head. The smell is fruit, some hops, heavy yeast, and definitely Belgian style. The taste is the same, easy drink, not too bad.
