Bottle poured into a tulip, smells of yeast, hints if lemon. Hazy golden, orange color with minimal thin white head. Complex and balanced mouthfeel with a long crisp finish. Overall highly recommended for Belgian golden ale, very impressive

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bit sweet for a strong, particularly one billing itself as a pale strong, but excellent aroma and color. Probably best in smaller doses on cooler days

Decent beer. Not my style of choice. Overall very sweet. Pours put cloudy golden. Cant put my finger on the aroma but reminds me of a doppelbock. Probably wouldnít drink again although the 7.6% ABV is nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: The body is hazy with hues of straw and orange throughout, the head is creamy with poor retention, but settles into a thick and creamy white coating.
Aroma: The aroma is of banana, bubblegum and creamy strawberry, perhaps a hint of spice.
Taste: Oh this sips nice with no flavor really shining, rather all of them intertwining nicely to form a beautifully balanced beer. Banana and hints of strawberry intertwine with hints of bubblegum, reminding me a bit of Juicy Fruit gum. Sweet malts are present, but very mild while a light clove presence enters on the finish to liven the sip up. This is nice!
Palate: Creamy with lively carbonation, lively.
Overall: This is a great beer, on par with any other similar beer that Iíve had. This is often overlooked by me, but Iíll make it a point to buy this more often.

On draught at Daily Grill. Deep yellow golden color. Sweet floral aroma with slight yeast farmhouse funk. Great flavor of sweet golden honey, spice, and hints of citrus. Was almost like a cross between a farmhouse ale and an abbey style tripel.
