Steve_0 (3346) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Sampled on Tap at GABF 2014. Pour is clear lemon with a frothy white head and great lacing. Heavy phenolic, grass, some white pepper, coriander, biscuit, basil, and lemony aroma. Taste is straw, phenolic, black pepper, Belgian yeasty, banana, and oranges with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. OK, but nothing like some of their other offerings.

Ibrew2or3 (7461) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a nice clear gold body that supports a thin off white head. The modest aroma offers up kind of punchy notes like a sharp apricot and lime mixture that gets into a nice little malt graininess at the end of the draw. The taste starts with a little bit of grainy malt sweetness and then sort of slightly tart peach and apricot and maybe a little bit of a pear note going on. This finishes with a pleasing sort of grainy maltiness that is in contrast to the brighter, slightly tart fruitiness.

Clear gold with a fluffy white head and very nice lace. Aromas of yeast, citrus, banana and bread. Sweet bready malt up front, accompanied by flowery hops and yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation, prickly but creamy mouthfeel and a lingering tropical fruit sweetness in the finish.

BlackHaddock (4920) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
19th March 2014, San Diego’s old Fish Market Bar, sat on the terrace facing the bay sunning ourselves. One of five beers that we took during a leisurely afternoon. Clear, almost straw blonde in colour with a white covering for a head. Mild citrus front to the nose and taste, obviously an American take on a Belgian Ale because it tastes nothing like what I was expecting (being a Brit who visits Belgium on a regular basis). I did however enjoy it, some hints of yeastiness within the flavours made it semi-interesting and I found it easy to drink while watching the water lap against the shore.

Brigadier (3235) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2014
On tap in San Diego (CA)
This Belgian ale had a very distinct West Coast feel. Unlike the dry texture of those in Europe this one hides a delayed bitterness. Just thinking about it again makes my mouth water.

Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated golden base shimmers with life. Light honey, cereal grains, candy sugar, and a fresh airy feel are open and fit in well with the nice weather. This does not have much depth but what is present works to maximum effect.

Flavor / Palate - Golden crisp, honey, and cotton candy rise from the tongue to fill the mouth with freshness. The fabric softener finish tickles the throat. If it were a bit lower ABV then this would make a great session beer. As it is two or three pints would be a great way to spend an evening.

Good beer. Very drinkable with good balance. Nothing really stands out though. Lazy rating.
