UPDATED: SEP 20, 2010 Draft at 3Floyds’ pub on Dark Lord Day. Cloudy gold color under a big meringue head. An exquisite mix of that Belgian pale malt and too many hops for a Belgian beer—I suspect some American IPA hops—adding citrus, pine and pepper to the mix.

Golden color with big, fluffy head. Belgian, fruity yeast aroma. Yeast gives also the main part of the taste with its specific spicy character. Carbonation is on the higher side. Overall a very good example of a belgian strong pale ale.

neongolden (758) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
(750ml bottle kindly left for consumption @ our airbnb in Brussels) Pours a nearly clear deep gold with a fairly large pillowy white head and spotty lace. Aroma of somewhat sweet pale malt, soft esters of pit fruit, light bubblegum, spicy herbal phenolics, light yeast funk, pilsner/wheat type graininess. Palate fairly sweet at first, honey/light candy sugar, bubblegum ester hints, apricot, herbal. A bit more bitter and spicy towards the finish, coriander, phenolics, lightly peppery. Some grain in the finish too. Sweetness remains through to aftertaste, bitterness light overall, alcohol hidden. Medium bodied and creamy despite active carb. Quality Belgian golden strong, not really as hoppy and aggressive as I’d like but has enough edge to it to be interesting. Well made, easy to drink.

33cl bottle. It’s my father in law’s favourite, so I can’t say anything negative about it, hahaha! No really, great beer, pretty strong, but still a smooth drink.

Colore biondo chiato leggermente torbido, schiuma abbondante un po’ grossolana. Odore fruttato e caramellato. Sapore dolce di malto, leggermente asprigno, fruttato, caramellato, corpo leggero, frizzantezza medio-alta.

Lekker bier dat je kunt blijven drinken. Ik weet niet zo goed hoe ik de smaak moet omschrijven, maar is gewoon goed.

Bière de caractère : une bonne dose maltee/sucrée qui réveille les papilles et offre un très joli corps rond. Un superbe houblonnage qui apporte son rien d’amertume pour la rendre assez riche aromatiquement et équilibrer avec la rondeur.

Smells a little strong. Pours a cloudy dark gold. Taste is not too sweet. Little aftertaste. No hoppy bitterness. Good amount of carbonation Overall I was very pleased. Will buy again. Looking forward to cellaring and trying again in a few years. MB

With an aroma of gentle spices and straw coloured body the beer Is surprisingly smooth and almost cream-like with a flavour that moves from savoury with a touch of sourness to a sweet finish. One of the more unique beers I’ve tried.

Strong Ale, dotada, turva, não pasteurizada. Creme de alta formação e é alta duração. Aroma complexo cítrico e Herbal, dulçor e laranja. Sabor harmonioso, que mascar o teor alcoólico com ótima combinação. Dulçores inicial de caramelo, notas de laranja e coentro. Lúpulo ligeiramente pronunciado no final, típico das cervejas belgas. Ótima combinação como toda, está entre as prediletas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
