2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
i found nothing extraordinary about this beer. an average ale that didn't have any real kick or distinctive characteristics. maybe it was skunked, for the biotch is in a green bottle (when will the learn?). may try it again.

I can see some of the apeal in this brew, unfortunatelly to me it seems like the proportions between igridients are way off and the resulting brew is bunch of ingridients fighting for space, I simply couldnt finish it...

Sweet citrus esters in the aroma. Pours to a puffy white head with large bubbles that dissipates quick;y with marginal lacing. Mildly estery without being forceful. Alcohol apparent in the finish. Nice smooth, silky mouthfeel. Bottle.

Smelled awful, tasted bad. Not what I thought is was going to be. Boddington is a better golden ale

Reminded me of a Hennepin....I am not a fan of the golden belgian style....just too spicy.

Slightly hazy golden; aroma of alcohol, peach, biscuit, slight bit of paint thinner (effin' Riva again with the phenols), faint cardamom. Body has a plasticy, fizzy feel. Peppery character, a little bread, a little acidity. These wanna-be Duvels have a tough time coming into the same ballpark - gives me more respect for the original.

hazy yellow, quick disappearing head. faint aroma of lemon and yeast. some doughy malt in the flavour with spice, yeast, and lemon. not bad, but overall underwhelming.

Clear straw with big white head. Aroma is astringent with minimal sweetness. Taste is mildly sweet, yeasty, and bitter (herbal and alcohol). Smooth, slightly creamy medium body.

Poured a very pale yellow orange with a fairly big fluffy head. Sweet aroma, but with some musky sour apple. Quite a nice aroma, but on tasting it becomes pretty lame. Dry and shallow. Some belgian yeast, but not much else. A strong alcoholic beer with a piss weak flavour! Some bugglegum and metal in the aftertaste. It seemed to me like you might as well just pour a shot of vodka into a regular strength belgian.

OK, so what about the name of this stuff? $7 for a small draft at McGoos in Pgh. Smells like many other belgies. Good clean olfactory, quite interesting. Looks like any other pale yellow beer, clear and pale. Barely any carbonation. Not overly alky in flavor, is refined and you’d never know it was near 9%. Quite smooth for that alky content, I think I feel a buzz coming on. Is a little less refined than a 6% belgie but you gotta expect that. Finish is a little less civilized than I like and more than I expected. Not bad, however, does not live up to the standards of a true belgie like East End Session #9 - Grisette and is not nearly as good as Leute Bokbier for a strong belgie.
