COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The traditional bière de garde was a hearty solid beer that was fit for storing to use as compensation to farmhands instead of gold. After a long day in the Leelanau sun we would rather get paid in this beer than gold. Good Harbor Golden celebrates its magnificent appeal as a stoic, solid, quiet-type ale. Because the beer spends so long in the oak it won’t be ready for the public until sometime in May.

My first review can only be for the beer that started it all for me eight years ago at Spuyten, and which I always go back to (if/when I can find it, which is extremely rare in DK). This beer is wild ale perfected, vinous, clean, with a fruity sourness. Could drink this for ages. Even after meeting Cantillon I’ve never stopped yearning for this one.

bigtaster (889) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2015
From bottle into a snifter. Nice very cloudy gold color with medium sized white head with fine bubbles. Nose has nice sour notes, lemon, barnyard, some biscuit malts, maybe some corn, . High carbonation, medium sweetness, moderate sour, hints of funk, slightly dry finish with some more sour, very well balanced. This is a very well crafted beer, very complex, smooth, drinkable, blew me away.
