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.

Hazy copper and orange-tinted golden body with a very nice glow and a single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of bright yeast, wheat, alcohol, coriander seed, a bit of cloves and a decent amount of curacao - very nice indeed. Medium-bodied; Deep chewy yeastie and wheat flavours up front with the large presence of full oranges, some white pepper, a touch of grass and herbal elements and a good wheat and coriander seed freshness at the tail end. Aftertaste is quite complex with a good deal of bite to the finish, showing some orange sweetness, spice complexities and a pleasant and long-lasting malt profile that really shows off the wheat. Overall, a belgie ale that shows itself as truly belgian - you wouldnít have guessed this came from Saint Louis if you were sipping this while eating a box of frites at Friterie Tabora in Bruxelles. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Clarendon (Arlington), Virginia on 26-April-2015 for US$12,99 for a six pack sampled at home in Washington on 24-May-2015.

Goblet on tap. Dull gold color. Aroma of bubble gum and wheat with sweetness. Great banana flavor, sweet and fruity. Could drink a lot of this. Light palate. Like a good tripel

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

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.
