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.

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.

750 ml bottle gift from my girlfriend. Hazy golden pour with a fluffy head that drops to an intermittent film. Aroma is spicey, fruity, with a bit of hay and sourness. Flavor is sweet and fruity, with some nice spice. A little must and funk in the finish. Pretty good.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Bottle from Sun Devil in Mesa, AZ. Hazy golden body with a huge off-white head. Mild aromas of kandi, pale malt and a mild spicy fruit. Medium body with smooth carbonation. It starts sweet but something like citrus zest cuts that. It’s not citrus though. It’s very smooth. Not so strongly flavored as some. Deceptive as to alcohol. A little light stone fruit in the finish.
