22. Pours a cloudy pale gold with burnished coppery hues in the middle. Loose bubbly fish-eyed white head. Bubbly lace here and there. Earthy phenolic nose, maybe a little bit of aluminum, or maybe thatís actually some fruit skin. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Nutty, green apple-y mid-palate. Kind of an interesting yeast profile on this one. Pleasant, refreshing, lively, and drinkable, if not exactly the most memorable MS beer ever.

Yeasty spicy aroma, notes of bread, pears, apples, a hint of peppery hops. Pours bright golden, nice head and lace. The flavor is more spicy yeast, soft lighter fruit notes with bread and light malty sweetness. A hint earthy with a soft peppery finish. Nice little american Belgian Strong.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
22oz bottle. Rating #86. Hazy golden pour with a decent white head that left a minimal spotty lacing on the glass. Yeast doughy aroma, light fruits, a little pear maybe. Light bitterness and more light fruitiness, slightly acidic, but pretty good. (1650)

Bottle:   By the time I poured the remainder of the bottle this one was very cloudy, straw in color, slightly golden (sharper and clearer earlier in the pour), with a frothy white head.   Lacing was spotty.   Bright bready nose, slight alcohol floralness.   Very bready and yeasty on the tongue, bright, a little doughy even.   Has a bit of basement like mustiness to it as well.   A little astringent on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   This one isnít as bright or floral as other Belgian Goldens, but its okay.   For an American made version, its not bad at all.

22 oz. bottle shared by dbsdelight- thanks again, Dan! Says it was bottled 6-6-6 and then Keir bought it in 2008 and gave it to Dan, the master cellar man. Pours a clear yellow-gold color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet and pale malts, candi sugar, honey, apricots, peaches, and light, spicy Belgian yeast. Flavor of the same malts and fruits, candi sugar, spicy yeast, pepper, and straw. Dry finish. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. This has held up great for 5 years. Probably wonít get better but itís nice right now.

Aroma: Rose scented lotion and spicy Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: Crisp with lively bubbles.

Overall: For a style I donít appreciate, this was above average. Very crisp and clean.

Served from a bottle at the OTM tasting room. The appearance is a deep golden with a reddish hue to it. The aromas are a bready and peanut brittle. The flavors really have a strong peanut butter and peanut brittle character to it. There is also a caramel thing going onto of some milder Belgium yeast characters. The sweetness can become a bit cloying. The mouth is medium-full bodied with a sticky creaminess to it.

Had a bottle of this recently. I had purchased four bottles of this three years ago when I was in Anchorage and then cellared them. Colour...truly golden with quite a froth of bubbles making a thick off white head. Nose...delicately spicy with bits of yeast and candi sugar. Palate... still plenty of effervescence here with notes of candi sugar, apple pie spices, hints of citrus and anjou pear. Overall, seems to have held up well after a few years. Curious to see how the other bottles will age over the next year or two.

22oz courtesy of savnac. Really the first MS beer that I have not liked. The pour is dirty blonde, hazy brownish yellow with a fizzy, white head. Little retention and lace. Aroma is urine, grain, not much else I can garner out of the tulip. Taste is chalky, thin, unremarkable.
