COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlafly Belgian-Style Golden Ale opens with a fruity nose and rounded sweetness that compose a pale and balanced beer. Hallertau hops lend a hint of spice that balances the aroma and flavor of orchard fruit. Similar to our Belgian Tripel, but with a lighter body and a crisper finish, it is the perfect introduction to the family of Belgian beers renowned for their complexity and delicacy.

ICEatALAMO (938) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. The pour is a light hazy yellow. The aroma is all Belgian. The taste certainly holds true to a Belgian, but on the pale side. Not my favorite style, or my favorite beer.

dmac (4004) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2013
12oz bottle from Spirits Rt 166. Poured an unimpressive medium density golden body under a fizzy medium sized white head. Aroma of yeast, bubblegum, dry tropical fruits, sugar, troast, clove and banana. Full big body with lively carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a big nod to the Belgian yeast strain followed by bubble gum and dry tropical fruits. Meh this is okay but not really feeling it tonight.

chinchill (1866) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2013
12 oz bottle, Bottled on 25 April 13, served in a Belgian snifter. Pours a hazy yellow-golden with a small head. The head soon reduces to a ring but manages to produce average lacing. S: Lemon, pear, starfruit & apple plus spicy hops. Some subtle banana comes to the fore in tasting. Like many Belgians, this one tastes much better than it smells. Feel: Medium-light body; crisp carbonation; finishes semi-dry O: easy to drink; a very solid example of style that could readily pass for an actual Belgian.

Jabic (427) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Ar: Peach and cloves - a bit medicinal. Ap: Hazy golden - medium white head with decent retention and a ring of foam remaining. T: Banana and peach, with a touch of malt sweetness - clove and rosy alcohol, with a lot of clove coming through - medicinal flavor comes forward with some prominence - medium-low bitterness - peppery and more banana on the finish. P: Medium body with high carbonation, creamy and full - finish is dry. O: This beer has a lot going for it, but the medicinal quality is just a bit too forward, and really detracts from some of the other nice flavors.

Bif (1443) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Pours a nice golden color with a fair head and bits of lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, fresh fruit, with a hint of malt sweetness. Taste is quit clean with a mild fruit sweetness, with a bit of citrus and malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly moderate body, crisp and refreshing. The 7% ABV is very well hidden. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that goes down way too easy.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of bread, toast, spice, herbal hop finish. The taste is stone fruits, yeast, heavy phenolic spice. Medium bodied. Decent.

nj_BierMaven (104) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours bright golden from growler, creamy head laces the tulip glass. Aroma of tart apple and mild banana uneasiness. Creamy on first taste yielding to a surprising bitter, refreshing finish that nicely matches the tart apple hints. Flavors and aroma deepen as it warms in the glass.

firkinChad (49) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a snifter dated 3/25/13. A-Fruity yeast, clove, banana. A-mostly clear with a straw yellowish orange tint. Head is barely held, no lacing. Taste-Big fruity esters with clove and slight spiciness. P-dispite the impression of the head leaving so quickly it actually has nice carbonation. It has sweetness that still comes acrossed as balanced with the spiciness. O-Rich, Fruity, and spicy. I enjoy this beer a lot. I get a bit of heat in my back palate from the alcohol.
