3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, golden color. The aroma is mild and disappointing, maybe a hint of sweet malt doughyness, along with a trace of spice, but it took a lot of work to reach that determination. This is a flavorful beer compared to the aroma, however its still fall short of most classic Belgian ales. Somewhat yeasty and sweet, with gentle carbonation, and spice, accented in the finish by a touch of hops in the finish. Overall a good quality beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
At the brewery: Pours clear golden with a white head. I don’t know, but it seemed too clear. Aroma is light Belgian yeast, with some malt, a bit of fruit, and a tad of spice. Taste is somewhat spicy. Kind of tastes like a blonde ale with Belgian flavor rather than a Belgian ale per se. Not that great. A bit underwhelming.
