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.

Bottle from Saveur Bière. Big bubbly and white head. Murky amber body. Smells of apricot, yeast, citrus. Tastes spicy and hoppy, both bitter and sweet. Lean aftertaste. Not very complex but still a balanced quality brew.

KW92 (272) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 25, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, dosyć długa.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Ładny dobrze zbilansowany. Zioła i przyprawy, lekki zapach trawiasto-cytrusowy.
SMAK: Słodowe, lekko goździkowe i przyprawowe. Zaskakująco dobrze pijalny. Świetnie ukryty alkohol.
OGÓLNIE: Orzeźwiające, lekkie w odbiorze. Totalne zaskoczenie. Jeśli chodzi o aromat mogłoby być lepiej.

Gangstergafje (169) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2015
Beautiful yellow color. The beer has a nice white foam. The smell is nice. The smell is sweet and you can smell some alcohol. There is also a little roast aroma, which is nice. The smell is nice. There is a nutty king of taste. The nutty flavor gives a savory appearance. Realy nice beer.

One of the best for my taste. Good aroma and appearance. Bitter but not too bitter. Different nuances of taste.

huineman (300) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2015
Pours golden with a white heavy head. Aroma is bread, lemon, butter, iron and a delicious note of mint. Balanced, soft, full-bodied, with a long bitterish finish. Great.

SkillsFactory (96) - ITALY - MAY 23, 2015
Dorata, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca di media persistenza, ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero. Aroma di coriandolo, leggero sentore di chiodi di garofano, lievito belga, amaro erbaceo da luppolo. Stesse note palatali. Birra equilibrata e ben bevibile.

Brew_Cat (14) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle @ Barley Cargo, Athens. Light yellow to golden color, small diminishing off-white head, medium body. Malt aromas of bread, hay, and grains. Floral, grass and herbal notes. At times it reminded me of white wine. Taste evolves and new layers appear as time passes by, leaving an earthly fresh sense and a slightly sour aftertaste. Not as strong as I would expect from its ABV percentage, nevertheless a fairly good and refreshing golden ale. Paired well with vegetarian finger food.
