COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Goudenhop is Flemish-American meaning golden hop. The ale is a hoppy blonde ale, perhaps best described as an imperial Belgian-style IPA. Rich gold in color, with distinct hop resin in the nose and citrus in the taste. The body and flavor are clean and dry, with spicy notes from our unique Ommegang house yeast.

Beerenberger (1384) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Aroma of Belgina yeast, citrus, flowers, and even hints of banana. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a mostly lasting white head and rings of lacing. The taste is floral, yet overall bitter in nature. Floral notes up front with some Belgian yeast, citrus and hints of caramel in the middle, with a bready, yet dry hoppy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer. Varied tastes with a pleasing dry finish…what’s not to like?

750ml bottle 9/11/13 (Binny’s Plainfield)-48° in Trappist Glass-In remembrance of my co-workers. Pours a clear blonde with a small tight white head. Aroma of hops, hay, yeast, citrus, and grass. Taste of hops, yeast, citrus, grass, orange, and dryness. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice brew.

drjay44 (2587) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. ABV 7.4% per the label. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained white head, with extensive lacing, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is light Pils malts, with hints of lemon, pear, heavier resin.....taste is light malts with hints of lemon, pear, finishing with a lingering peppery bitterness....mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds light spritz. This is a nicely balanced, pleasantly complex beer in both aroma and flavor, with a clean refreshing bitter finish. Unfortunately, it really does not meet the Blonde Ale style. It is hazy probably from dry hopping, when it should be clear. Also, and this was intentional by the brewers, it has way too much hop character. However, I think it is a well done experiment. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

HonkeyBra (3286) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a rich golden color with a thick white head. Aroma of bright, grassy hops, fruity yeast, and fresh baked bread. Some melon, some apricot, touches of banana. Flavor is light, mildly bitter, mild honey bread sweetness. Medium bodied, fluffy cloud-like mouthfeel. Finishes a touch bitter in the finish. This is a nice little golden.

Bottle from brewery. Clear visibility, after leaving bottom sediment in bottle. Nice gold in color. Complex and balanced flavor profile. Banana, pear notes. Black pepper note. Slight earthiness. Clean, bright mouthfeel. Bitterness lingers. Overall, nice Belgian ale. Great beer for capping off an active day in warm weather.
