delight, complex offering, a hybrid between an IPA and a Belgian ale. Intensely hoppy with a bitter follow through mixed with moderate citrus notes on the palate. One of my favorites.

"old review. Nice hoppy tripel-ish thing going on. Lots of light fruit, yeasty spice, and a decent dose of crisp and bittering hops. Goes down pretty easy for 8%. Will likely get again..."

This is actually a rating for the Matilda 2009 Belgisk Style Vintage Ale - 5 y Old! - This had gone slightly stale and dusty w. flat and dissapating head and weak body. Interesting aged rum/Madeira like notes though. Pungent acidity like a classic aged Belgian ale. I miss some fresh aromatics, but more importantly sweetness & body to balance.

Auction. Bottle. Nice notes of citrus, fruit, dough, pepper and honey. A full bodied brew that has a really good balance. The treat with this brew is the peppery dough taste that really shines as the beer warms.

11/15/2010: Goose Island Demolition Belgian Style Golden Ale... Aroma: Pale malts, light candi sugar, clover honey, ripe fleshy fruits (nectarine and black plum), a hint spice (corriander), grapefruit citrus, floral overtones. Appearance: Golden (duh!) color; very cloudy; small, frothy, off-white head. Flavor: More difficult to describe... It’s slightly sweet, yet slightly sour and contains notes of white wheat, lemon pith, honey, yeast, and persimmon with pinch of white pepper spiciness and grassy hops in the finish with a moderate bitterness and tangy/sour aftertaste; alcohol is invisible. Palate: Medium-light to medium body; small, subtle carbonation bubbles. Overall: Very tasty; it has good depth and complexity
1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle (7.2% Alcohol by Volume; Bottled on 05/07/10 1547) from Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #614 for this beer.

Top Bier, welches dem Belgischen Ale nachempfunden ist. Kein Durstlöscher sondern ein Ale zum geniessen. Auch für einen Winterabend geeignet.
