Light gold color, with hazy appearance, small white head and very little lacing. Aroma is light with perfumey, floral hops. Flavor has nice grassy and floral hops, dry, with hay and spices. Pretty good overall.

Cloudy orange yellow pour with creamy white head and tremendous lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, and spice with a citrus flavor with hint of spice and touch of hop bite at the back end. Nice beer.

Bottle, as pictured. Light, flowery, hoppy but sweet. Nice beer, sadly kinda run-of-the-mill in terms of Belgian blondes/Belgian-American IPAs. Really nice beer though.

bottle, this was bad, took on aspirin astringency, just bitterness from hop adds to the chemicsl bitterness, and then sugar water. Some disjointed belgian flavors, pretty bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Golden pour with a puffy white head. Big juicy citrus aroma with a grassy and floral undertone. Flavor is bitter at the start without much of the citrus that I got from the aroma. Lingering bitter with a lightly yeasty finish.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hefe like pour from bottle. Smoother IPA olfactory. Strong, does not hide 7.5% Some creamy co2. Rather medicine like in its presentation. Finish is uncivilized tripel wannah bee. This lager lover is not impressed, mows over my girlie taste buds.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz - Too mild for an IPA, and not funky enough to be seen as a Belgian. Good not great

Bottle. At 1st pour seems like standard IPA, with a golden pour white head, lace and aromas of grapefruit and pine. Good citrus flavor of grapefruit, mango and pineapple. The Belgian yeast did not stand out, which is a good thing. The mouthfeel is much smoother than the standard IPA with no bitter bite at all. The alcohol is well hidden.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden-orange into tulip glass with soapy, thin head and lively sediment. Has a sweet, vanilla extract and taffy aroma with hints of Belgian yeast and citrus hops. I really enjoy the yeast strain Ithaca uses for their Belgian/farmhouse releases. Similar strain to White Gold here. Nice tropical fruit taste with some strawberries as well. Mango pulp. Modest peppery spice. Mostly bitter hops that give way to yeast, and finally fruitiness in the back. Finishes somewhat dry. Does not fall into the IPA category, more of a Belgian ale. Nice, would like to try others from the Box of Belgians series.
