crossovert (7961) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
650ml yellow waxed bottle. The name doesn’t really make sense, I’ sure others have pointed that out. It is is quite pale and golden abv considering. Strong belgian flavor, heavy raisin, low body, its okay.

RedSox2004 (1330) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Yellow gold with a slight haze, one-finger off-white head and ok lace. Slight Belgian yeast aromas with a light smokiness and a surprising lack of spice. Light fruit sweetness accompanied by modest Belgian yeasts. Light to medium body, minimal carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a sweetish finish.

Mittenator (1390) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Flight at bottlecraft. Pale gold with a light head. Sourish with a weird apple taste.

EtTuCthulhu (1141) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2014
The aroma is full of Belgian yeast with undercurrents of sour fruit, banana, and light malts, and the appearance blends a small white head, lots of fine-grain sediment, and a hazy golden color. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, but the balance is off, causing the sour to completely overpower your mouth; furthermore, the palate has a slick texture, medium-light body, soft carbonation, and a fairly sour finish.

ajnepple (2564) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2014
On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Gold and clear with a dissipating head and minmal lacing. Fruity esters, sweet malts, mild bitter hops and herbs in the aroma. Similar flavor with notes of Belgian yeast, clove and banana over a medium body. I like it.

zacgillbanks (2565) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This golden beer pours with a quickly disappearing white head. It has floating sediment pieces with spicy, zesty lemon and vanilla flavours, floral earthy notes and a warming toffee and fruity finish.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2013
I dislike golden ales but this one is decent. Better than decent. And for the price it's even better. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wxman (1478) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2013
On tap at Global Brew. This may be a true blonde, but it’s not a true dubbel. In Belgium, this would be a tripel. It’s a pale hazy yellow with an ABV of 8% - - the definition of a tripel. Regardless, it’s very good. Fruity yeasty aroma with banana, clove, various other fruits, yeast and spices in the taste. A fine product.
