COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a Belgian style Golden Ale is delightfully approachable and utterly devious. Brewed with the finest Belgian 2-row malt and a blend of traditional and new-world hops, it has extraordinary fruity and spicy aromas with mouth filling flavors of sweet malt and earthy hops.

The lingering finish is dry and slightly bitter but very, very smooth. 1.075 O.G.

22oz bottle from the brewery. Pours a pale straw like color, not much head or lacing. Fruity pear and cotton candy nose. Sweet fruits out front. Earthy Belgian yeast with a medium body. Has a dryness in the finish.

Benzai (9652) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2015
Bottle @ home shared with Abijen. Hazy light orange color, very small particles of yeast residu floating in it, average sized white to off-white head. Aroma is malts, sweetish, sweet hops and it also reminds me of red fruit. Taste malts, a touch of yeast, sweet sticky hops, again some red fruits and a slight hint of spicy hops. Medium body and carbonation.

Schenkt een gouden oranje bier met zwevend gist. Ruikt naar bosvruchten, aarde, thee, kruiden. Smaakt zoet vrucht, thee en kruiden. Medium body en een plakkerig mond gevoel.

Bottle. Golden with a medium head. Slightly sweet with some spiciness in the background. You are aware of the hops but its not a hoppy beer. Interesting.

Murky gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is dry and crisp. Sweetish malts balanced by spice. Little malt cream. Dried orange underneath. A sweet and spicy dry finish. Not bad, pretty authentic tasting but I was hoping for a US twist.

On draft. It pours a very pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is nice with some grassy, skunky weed and earthy hops. Fruity, spicy yeast is apparent as well. The flavor has nice spicy hop that seems noble, but also dank and weedy at the same time. More spicy Belgian yeast. Full bodied. A little can sugar sweetness, but it finishes nicely dry. This seems underrated to me. I enjoyed this one.

Barreras (1168) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a golden yellow with some haze. Aroma is little to nothing. Taste is light and sweet. With lots of fruit notes. Specifically citrus fruits mixed with a sweet malt. The 8% alcohol isn’t noticeable, an easy drinking Belgian Strong that was enjoable yet not complex in flavor.

Mrnoluv (199) - long beach, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Not much aroma, great golden ale look, but just too much on the spices, no hint of sweetness, no hint of bitter, just spice. Can’t recommend it.

Gold color, white head. Grainy up front, some spice, caramel malts, apples, pears, doughy flavors.
