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.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours clear light amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is light tropical fruit, syrupy with a sweet maltiness, grassy hops, and a bit of alcohol bite. Taste is pretty smooth--a bit of sugary sweetness, bready malt, and an apricot fruity sweetness. Thicker and more syrupy than what I expected--actually works pretty well here. Pretty nice brew.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 12oz bottle split at Madison tasting. Dulled yellow-tan. Thin, non head. A beer like this really has trouble shining among the other all star beers sampled with it. Unimpressive dulled alcohol tinged brewhouse aroma Has some nice Belgian yeast tones and a faint, true to style noble hopping. Thin and quite drinkable for the style, while remaining relatively true to style. .. full bottle rerate..Saaz really stand out, bigtime US style.

12 ounce bottle that pours a cloudy orange with aromas of pepper, peach, clove and a touch of honey. Flavors of light fruit with some spicy/bready yeast.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pours clear gold with a medium sized head. Aroma is not very pleasant with metal and sugar all that I could detect. A bit thick and just a bit sticky. Flavor is very sweet. Honey, alcohol and a touch of funk are the dominant flavors.

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

AirForceHops (6192) - 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.
