Smooth and rich, dark golden beer with silky head.Aroma is grass, smoke, wood, malt, sourdough...complex. But it gets better...taste is butterscotch, malt, butter, caramel, hay....again, really nice. This is on the "1001 Beers t o Try Before You Die" list....

So, the French recently have been making inroads to microbrewing of sorts. I have been a fan of 3 Monts to a dregree from way back, this beer was much more drinkable for a variety of reasons for the similar style they represent. La Goudale was very balanced overall, but had that familiar bier de garde funkiness on the back end. However, the carbonation was very prevalent, which I like for its scrubbing of the palate while eating certain foods. Had it with a garbanzo bean salad with bleu cheese dressing. It worked!

ghawener (1433) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle: First rating for this brewery, a great soft, subtle beer with nice blending of malts and spices. A great session beer but with care @ 7.8% ABV. Food Pairing: Cheese platter.

Bottle 330ml from la Grande Epicerie, Paris. Tasty beer. Aromas of caramel, hay, and straw. Taste is sweet and sour, with good length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Yellow, with a thin head.

Aurelius (3903) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Straightforward, Belgian PA aroma -- tannic, sweetish, a little caramel, slightly floral, a little vanilla, slight banana and female sweat. Good 750ml bottle, handwork label. Candied, sweet, pear/pomaceous flavors, a little astringent, tannic. Slick, medium to slightly dense body, effervescent. This was not terribly complex. but really hit a sweet spot that I have for bitters and belgian PAs. On top of that, I got this at a clearance price of $1.99/750ml -- $1.99/750 ml is not a terrible price for malt liquor, much less a beer of this sophistication. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

stefannilssons (1300) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2013
Det här var en favoritöl för några är sedan och det var nog tre är sedan jag drack den senast. Det här är fortfarande en bra öl med kryddig smak av jäst och lite syra, kroppen är stabil och ölen är välbalanserad i största allmänhet.

RichardW (1370) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Sour lemon and yeast aroma, nicely done Belgian style beer, with bags of flavour; hints of coriander, orange zest, cinammon and cloves. Sweet and a touch sugary, without going too far. Warming in the chest, lively pour, good dusty gold appearance, biscuit finish, with the sourness staying right through. Very enjoyable.
