COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Golden Ale is Belgian-Style, yet with a Florida twist! Handcrafted in small batches using the finest all natural ingredients, including German Plisner malt and Czech Saaz hops. Quite a refreshing, yet complex beer… that will only mature if cellared for 2-3 years. -Ideal serving temperature 45f.

DavoleBomb (1522) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. 2011 vintage. 3.0 A: Deeply hazed light orange color. About one finger of frothy white head that falls very quickly and leaves but a touch of lacing. 3.5 S: Overripe peaches, peppery spiciness with a touch of clove, red apple, pear, and sugary sweetness with honey. Overall the malts are lightly biscuity. 3.5 T: Fruit to begin this with strong peach and, in decreasing order, pear, red apple, and orange. A touch more clove than in the nose with about the same level of peppery spiciness. Moderate honey flavor with moderate Belgian yeastiness. Again, biscuity malts. Booze is pretty well hidden. 3.5 M: Medium body. There’s a richness to this that comes off as a little bit chewy. Lightly spritzy carbonation that would be great if there was a bit more of it. Otherwise, smooth. 3.5 D: Not a bad beer by any means. It doesn’t impress, but it doesn’t disappoint either. Based on the scores, this must have been different or had problems in the past. In any case, worth a try. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-06-2011 19:21:29

Bottle. Slightly hazy dark orange with a shortish head. Mildly yeasty nose, taste is also mildly yeasty with ebbing golden malt. Medium body and refreshing.

AirForceHops (4681) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 25, 2011
2010 vintage. Purchased 12 oz bottle @ Juilo’s Liquors Westborough, MA. Price $3.25 with Wild Six discount. Used a snifter, golden hazy poor. Thin white head with spotty lace. Typical Belgian ale. Fruity with spices, yeast and a light bitterness. Dry in the finish. Nice alcohol warming on the way down. I don’t understand the real bad ratings?? Is it top tier? No, it’s not BUT it IS drinkable for the style. It is real sweet, guessing it would improve greatly over time. Overall, I still think it’s refreshing.

Aroma is fruity, estery and very style typical. Spices, yeast, bitter finish.

JohnCoctosin (37) - California, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Not a good beer, but hey, it’s new to me. Weak floral aroma, but a nice Belgian secondary aroma. Surprisingly 8.5% abv. Odd flavor, maybe clovey, maybe bananas. Definitely not pleasant.

This is the worst beer that I have ever tasted. It does not taste like beer at all, but like some mysterious concoction. It is so bad that I could not finish one bottle. I have two more bottles that I will cellar for 2 or 3 years to see if it becomes drinkable.

thornecb (4871) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel and hot alcohol aromas. Dry with sweet biscuit and caramel upfront turning to dusty hay in the sweet, medium-length finish. Too sweet...but I didn’t have 2-3 years to wait...

Shit on a shingle, this beer is sweet. And as I struggle for adjectives to use in its description, I’m left ashamed of myself for being such a early-thirties cynic. But this bottle is bad, bad beer, sickeningly saccharine, with a funky, soured-yeast aftertaste that refuses to leave your palate long after you’ve given up on this pint. (8/08)
