Tap @ the brew pub. Pours very cloudy orange / yellow with a substantial white head. Aroma of yeast, apricot, orange, floral notes and citrus. Flavour mainly of yeast, followed by the aforementioned fruits.

notalush (4992) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Tap at Vine St. - a fairly dry and strongly spicy Belgian ale - particularly dry for the strength, with some strong flinty character and potent peppery phenols - a bit of tangy wheat and light estery character - moderate hop bitterness - like some of their other Belgians, the spicy phenols come on a bit strong and become abrasive after a while - enjoyable up to that point, but becomes hard to drink after half a glass.

BeerandBlues2 (10056) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Tap. Pours hazy golden with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is straw and meal malt, citrus-lime, Belgian yeast, and light hop notes. Flavor is malt with Belgian yeast character, good balance, citrus and fruity ester notes, medium bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium-light body, low warmth, medium carbonation.

onceblind (4512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2011
On tap at Vine Street. Hazy light gold, small head. Aroma of pear and banana, and light bread dough. Big palate slam, in a good Belgian way. Big banana and simple sugar, but with a coriander and orange peel vibe. Warming alcohol finish without being boozy. Bg, loud, and robust. Great and interesting golden ale.

Nikiel (878) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2011
On tap at Southern Sun with Carla. Pours a hazy light gold. Smells wheaty with slight pepperiness. Tastes pretty simple with hints of wheat.

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2011
On tap @ MS Boulder. Golden yellow appearance with a white head. Sweet Belgian yeasty, nice Belgian blonde ale nose. Sweet, somewhat citrusy, belgian yeasty, wheat malty, golden ale flavor with a great Belgian yeasty, sweet aftertaste. Nice one!

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2011
hazed pale golden wheat colored body. perfumed nose heavy with creamy wheat and potpourri esters. moderate spiciness throughout: slightly bitter and astringent (herbal) upfront, but more like white pepper phenols and cardamom in the finish. canít pick up the oats but the wheat is evident. moderately dry throughout and enjoyable for the most part.
