A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

750ml corked and caged. Pours a hazy golden with a medium white head, decent retention. Lots of yeast present. Fruity yeasty aromas dominate, but some malt does come through. Flavors are again fruity with the addition of some spice, and hops. A mediocre rating for a mediocre brew.

Pours golden yellow with a cloudy appearance. Live yeast present. Nose is a very faint hint of wheat. Almost has a light beer aroma. Tastes similar to a light beer but with the tingle of a higher ABV.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Deep golden color with ahuge pillowy white head. Very yeasty aroma with some fruit and spice. A lot drier and crisper than I thought it would be. Lot’s of yeast floating in the glass. decent stuff and very drinkable for the high ABV.

Murky yellow with a huge wavy slowly dissipating head. Aroma of toasted malt, fruit, apple, Belgian yeast and alcohol. Taste of mild fruit, nuts and earthy hops. Dry finish to a mediocre Belgian beer. Some alcohol warmth on the back end.

Pours a straw yellow head with a fizzy white head. Decent carbonation. Aroma of spice, fruit, and yeast. Too much carbonation on the palate, but flavor of spice, yeast, and some fruit. Lots of floaties. Happy Halloween.
