COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hades is brewed with a rare Belgian yeast strain that gives a complex spicy flavor and aroma. Noticeable hops and medium malt character make it an extremely well-balanced, crisp ale. Hades goes great with a bowl of fresh mussels, crusty bread, and virtually any artesian cheese.

A - Pours a cloudy washed out golden pale. Nice short white head that forms a collar around wispy bubbles. S - Apples, banana, yeast, sweet grain, floral spice, clove, sweet tarts, some funky sourness. T - Grainy yeast with hints of spice, lemon, honey, and ginger. The hops come out towards the end along with the fizzy carbonation and floral spice. It finishes with a crispy sweetness that’s semi dry. M - Aggressive carbonation but also a smooth character. This one is a fruit forward BSPA. It blends nicely with the sweet malt. I liked it more with every sip. Great Divide has done it again. Serving type: bottle 10-28-2010

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Cloudy golden and light copper coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of yeast, caster sugar and a hint of wheat with a nice alcohol bite in the nose as well. Medium-bodied; Biting yeast and wheat flavours at first with a definite sweetness of caster sugar and some curacao. Aftertaste shows some mildish notes with wheat and yeast dominating and hints of very light hops and some alcohol assertiveness as well. Overall, a nice belgian ale with some mild notes compared to others from the style/country, but not amazing of course. I sampled this bottle direct from the source by an employee on 07-June-2014 in Denver, Colorado at the brewpub.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2014
Rated on 4-25-2011. This bottled beer pours a small fizzy head that quickly dissipated, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, lots of floaties, and no lacing. The aroma is malty, some hoppiness, sweet, fruity, and spicy. The taste is sweet, fruity, malt, some hops, spicy, yeasty, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is easy drinking, worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Tasty strong golden ale. Can't rate it at the top, but at no fault of the beer, I'm just not interested in golden ales.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber gold with a thin white head. Tastes musky, like lemony citrus, coriander, and booze. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like wheat, grains, lavender, and light yeast.

jbuskirk (404) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JAN 4, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Odd but I like it. Hades is a Belgian Ale that doesn’t seem to want to commit to one particular style, and that’s okay by me. It’s hoppy, yeasty, malty, earthy, and sour. All of the aforementioned flavors are big when they reach their turn. The flavor transcends styles, really. Some will like that about Hades and others will be frustrated by it. For me, this beer works well alongside some flavorful cheeses and bread.

(Backlog) On tap. The look is clear, thin off white head, and golden in color. The smell is spiced, yeasty, fruit, floral hops, and ok. The taste yeast, sweeter, spice, more fruit, and ok.
