COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saint Arnold Icon Gold is a Bière de Saison that delivers a complex spicy nose with notes of brown sugar and plums. Developed by brewer Aaron Inkrott, Saint Arnold Icon Gold was inspired by traditional French and Belgian farmhouse style ales, including Bière de Noel, which translates to mean Christmas Beer. Saint Arnold Icon Gold’s taste starts with big spicy malt and alcohol, moving to fruity in the middle and then an earthy, spicy finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle:   Pale amber, hazy, small frothy white head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, a little peppery, very doughy and yeasty.   Not as floral or barnish as other Saisons, but decent.   Really yeasty and doughy as it warms, almost too much.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Falls off slowly on the finish, lingering dough and yeastie bits with very faint spiciness.   Not floral or barnish, but instead yeasty and doughy.   Tiz okay for what it is.

Bottle. Clear dark amber color with fleeting head. Fruity, estery, phenolic, caramel aromas. Medium body. Spicy Saison yeast, fruity esters, bready, caramel flavors---good
