This fine pale ale has citrus and tropical fruit aromatic shared with a well-balanced Ė yet abundant Ė hop character. It uses our own Belgian yeast, five malts, two hops, and plenty of patience. Finishing touches include dry-hopping with Cascade hops and warm-cellaring.

Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Hazy amber pour with a tall, thick, frothy white head. Bubblegum, dusty, Belgian yeast, ripe fruit, sweet malt, and light spices in the aroma. Taste is more bubblegum, candied fruit, grains, Belgian yeast, floral hops, light spices and citrus notes. Light tropical fruit as well. Body is light-medium and rather bubbly due to the strong carbonation. Ends with more bubblegum, candi sugar, dried fruit, dusty yeast, floral hops, citrus notes and sweet malts. Nice!

750 ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 1/19/2010, best before January 2011. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a frothy inch and a half white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is citrus (tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange peel), yeast, pine hops and a bit of cloves. I think the taste is pretty similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some candi sugar and peppery spice. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit coating and is well carbonated. Drinkability is pretty good, itís smooth, refreshing and very easy to drink. Itís a good beer today, and would be even better on a hot day. And for $6.99 a bomber, itís a good beer at a good price.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
Enjoyed on tap in a chalice. The beer pours medium amber color, mimicking both the hues of classic American and Belgian pale ales. The nose is a melange of earthy/grapefruity hops, and Abbey yeast esters. The flavor picks up where the nose began, and delivers perhaps the best overall mix of American and Belgian flavor available in the U.S. The beer mimicks la Chouffeís beautiful earthy hop flavor, as well as a dry and almost tart finish that allows the beer to be at once complex and deep whilst remaining quite refreshing. Overall, a superbly brewed and formulated example.

jeckenroth (121) - Reading, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours a cloudy golden amber, with a touch of orange. The head is only slightly off white, thick and very long lasting. The nose is citrus bubble gum with a floral undertone. The watery feel and lively carbonation pushes the initial burst of flavor through quickly. The florals mix with a nicely balanced sweetness. The finish is very metallic and a touch overwhelming, but fades quickly. Nice refreshing beer for a summer BBQ. Might also mix well with a spicy thai dish.

25.4 oz bottle. Misted rusty yellow with a fluffy white head. Nose is dough, citrus and grass. Medium light with foamy carb. Taste is lemon pith and peel with a spritz of lime. Yeasty with hints of banana. Dry minerally finish.

drjay44 (3088) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2010
750. ml bottle. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, white head, with attractive lacing, over a clear golden (SRM 5) body.....nose is light citrus, grass, bit of pine, tiny bit of bubblegum and barnyard......taste initially is light biscuit, with sweet malt, then apple, pineapple finishing with a pine bitterness....mouth feel is light to medium, carbonation medium to high. This does not really fit very well into any of the myriad of Belgian styles. The malt back bone is a little light, the hops are more pronounced than usual, and the alcohol level is off for a Golden Strong, and it is much too strong, and hop heavy for a Belgian Pale Ale. It is a pleasant beer, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2010
16 oz draft. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small white frothy head. Aroma is very citric, spicy hops, nice fresh fruit characteristics, the cascade hops really jump out, nice bready malt backbone. Flavor starts out sweet, freshly picked citric fruits, picks up and interesting sort of clove spiciness. Almost gains a hybrid hefeweizen american pale ale hybrid taste. Very interesting, Nice lightly bitter hoppy finish, Medium body and a prickly carbonation. Very refreshing and tasty pale ale.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity apricot like aroma with some spicy beligian notes. The flavor has fruity belgian yeast, apricot, and floral hops. Really good.

popery (1742) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Tap, City Beer Store. Good enough but kinda boring. Bright light brown to gold, just a bit cloudy. Nice white head. Fairly subdued. Mostly Belgian yeast, light grain and mild citric hops. Some fruitiness and spice. The yeast is fairly earthy and it probably would have more complexity in a bigger beer, but it seems sort of restrained here. Well-balanced but no real hook. This beer just isnít quite up to better versions from Belgium. Good, clean feel. Very light hop bite. Quite drinkable. Again, I just would have preferred a bit more to make me want a second glass. Somewhat forgettable, ultimately. I donít mean to be harsh - thereís very little to criticize specifically about the beer, really. It just didnít hook me in.
