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.

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.

Bottle. Aroma of alcohol and yeast. The taste is sweet and yeasty for the most part, a bit cloying after a while. The yeast kinda sharply sticks out, and the beer overall tastes a bit boozy. Can taste a bit of hops at the very end. Decent, not as great as I hoped. 7% alcohol.

Pale, straw gold in color with a delicately floral nose, this well-balanced light Belgian matches sweetness with just the right touch of sour to create a refreshing and flavorful ale. Dangerously drinkable! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear gold with a solid head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is light wheat malt and carbonation that grows slightly through the palate, giving way to spice, primarily cloves in the finish. Decent brew, but I found the finish a little off-putting.

Bottle. Pour is a cleanish gold with s fizzy/sudsy white head. Aromas are slightly peppery with a little bit of honey and a distinct graininess. Flavor is sweet like honey and biscuit with a spicy edge to it... Interesting, but not my favorite.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery hops, light grainy sweetness, and faint fruity Belgian yeasty notes. Not bad.
