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.

12 ounce bottle, bottled on 3/25/13. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both OK. Aroma is fruity and spicy, it smells like pears, Belgian yeast, apricots, straw and bready malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some cloves, apples, candy sugar and coriander noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating and has moderate carbonation. I like this brew, it’s nice and tasty. Too bad I only bought a single bottle of this, I’ll buy a 6-pack next time. $2.75 a single at Liquor Barn.

Pours a nearly clear gold with a thin frothy white head. Aroma of toast, cereal, floral notes, apples, light citrus, spicy hops, fruity esters and a hint of sulpher, but only when first poured. Flavor is Full of bready yeast and bread crusty sweetness right away, then some floury grain, sweet tree fruit, hints of stone fruit, some bread, malty sweetness and light spicy hops and lingering bready yeast. Medium body, creamy, though slightly chalky feel throughout and has a light carbonation. Pretty good overall, a little too much like yeasty bread dough.

12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that fades into a thin ring. The aroma is sweet fruity, doughy yeast, spicy hops. The flavor is less sweet and more toasted cereal malts, light fruit, dough, light caramel; a touch on the dry side. Decent enough.

This is a really good Golden Age. The Belgian yeast and good selection of hops lends this beer the slightly sour, citrusiness that make it so good.

2013 bottle to a Belgian goblet. Color is a yellow amber with a fizzy white head. Aroma is full of sweet tropical fruits and Belgian yeast. Taste is the same with a spicy quality coming through in the middle and a slight bitter at the end. A medium mouthfeel with good carbonation and a little astringency. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
