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 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a mildly hazed golden color. The head is a two finger white shade that does a good job of staying around. This one really looks at home in a Duvel tulip. S: There is quite a bit of spicy yeast and grassy hops on the nose. Also noted are some characteristics of grape, apple, and pear. Pretty typical for the style. Still, Schlafly did a good job of pulling off the distinctive notes. T: A fruity sweetness is the first thing noted - this has a strong cherry quality to it that the nose didnít indicate. Later on, notes of (well handled) butterscotch and earthy hops help to balance out the apple/pear/cherry qualities; after a while, citrusy hints enter the palate, as well. Itís fairly sweet, yet well balanced all the same. M: This one could be dryer, and in fact, probably should be. Also a bit under-carbonated. I kind of hoped that the hops would cleanse some of the sweetness a little better, but itís still quite easy to drink. O: I reckon this one is a little too sweet to be in Duvelís pantheon, but that doesnít mean itís not good. Really, this is the kind of brew I want to be drinking on a warm day like this one. A solid BPA that could benefit from a few tweaks.

Golden and smooth. Sweet with mild fruit. Nice to have now and then, each one seems to be better than the first.

Dr_Fellini (769) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy light orangish-yellow color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is a mild fruit, belgian yeast, touch of spice. Similar in the flavor. Light and very drinkable. Iím not a big belgian ale drinker, but this is tasty.

Light and bubbly with a yellow color and whit foam. Peppery taste. Good basic intro beer for the Belgian style but not one I would immediately go back to again.

This was quite good. A very bubbly aroma and tons of zest and tingliness in the body as well. An imminently enjoyable beer.

Very fluffy white head. Pours a cloudy golden. Nose of sweet and fruity yet sour Belgian yeast. Taste of sweet malt and pears. Mouthfeel is bitingly effervescent at first, then smooth. Finishes fairly dry with lingering pear. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
