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.

Pours a decent cap of head with a bit of saaz coming up in the aroma. Quite a bit of sweetness in here. The esters jump in, but I get a little phenolic character as well. Adequate body and mouthfeel, but there’s an ever-present amount of sweetness that just brings this out of balance. Not a bad drink, but I wonder if the "belgian-style" came as a result of accidentally fermenting at too high of a temperature and incorrectly thinking "lot’s of esters" equate to "belgian-style"?

Bottle. Golden orange with small head. Reminds me of a Tripel. Sweet with Belgian spice. Decent.

Bottle '11 vintage. The pour is a dull hazy orange. The aroma is belgian yeast, with plum notes. The taste is bold belgian ale. This nails the style and maybe the age has done this very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft with meal. Okay strong, golden ale. But not one I will need to try again.

Not as good as Mack in Black but excellent nonetheless. Fruity aroma, we'll balanced. Peach and banana linger on the palate. Medium body.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Aroma of bread, orange peel, and slight clove. Pours hazy blonde with a yeasty small head. Taste is banana, orange peel and a harsh yeast. Nice mouthfeel and not too much booze. A decent offering.

ben4321 (5053) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle at a restaurant in Florida, 7/25/13

Aroma: The nose has some yeast/spice to go along with sweet malts
Appearance: This one pours a gold-orange color with a small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, yeasty, with a good amount of spice, fruit, and a little alcohol
Palate: The body is medium, it has a bit of heat, some stickiness, and a spicy tingle
Overall Impression: This was a solid one. It wasn’t an amazing beer, but it is certainly worth trying. I could certainly see drinking this one again.

Hazy golden colored pour. Big, frothy, white head that slowly fades. Plenty of lacing. Nice sweet malty aroma. Slight fruit notes. Sweet malt taste with some tasty yeast character - fruit mostly. Nice beer.

Bottle--golden color with a medium, fizzy, white head and lots of carbonation. Light buttery dough aroma. Taste was sweet, perhaps pineapple would be the closest flavor. A touch thick and very sweet on the finish. Produce place.
