3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured a dark golden color and man, if that head ever stopped coming out of the bottle, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to tell you the huge bubbly head was off white and subsided quickly and left some nice lace. A good deal of carbonation and sediment present. The aroma was of hops and fruit, mostly apricot. The flavor was of hops and citrus with a slightly astrigent finish on a medium body.

Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with thick white head. Aroma is mild and leans towards candy sweet. Mouthfeel has pleasant carbonation. Flavor is medium bodied. Some candy beat sugar flavors, but not overpowering. Mild hop finish cleanses the sweetness away leaving you ready for the next sip.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ceramic bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium-sized head. Aroma was of yeast, banana and some citrus. Flavor is slightly water-down, with the yeast, some spiciness, a little hops, banana bread balancing together. Not my favorite from Belgium, but nothing bad.

Very nice. Not as many flavors as other Belgian blonde ales, but quite well done all the same. Not too much alcohol tast, and a nice balance yeasty note.

Rebranded holiday growler. Truely goldenbody with beer goggle haze. Aroma was a clone of flavour, both with lovely sweet citrus and mild yeast. Good solid head that follows most of the way down.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: golden color. Medium head, white color, airy and not much lasting.
Aroma: yeast mainly, with banana, bubble-gum and mineralized notes. Malty underground and fruity aromas like oranges and papayas. Spicy smells like coriander.
Flavor: malty start. Intensive in yeast with notes of bread, banana, bubble-gum and bicarbonate (light). Light dryness from hops with herbal, grapefruit peel and coriander reminiscences. Mineralized aftertaste.
Palate: light to medium body and medium carbonation.
Remark: disappointment beer, the beautiful bottle and the high price create big expectations.

gift from my brother. Not impressed with this beer. Pours golden pee color. Fly might like to shower with it. Too sweet and alcoholic for my liking. Somebody said grape juice like and that’s accurate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear body, full amber colour. Rich head, quickly diminishing. Malty and floral aroma. A creamy sweet maltiness (bread) is the dominating flavor; the finish is a bit syrupy, revealing some alcohol that keeps lingering in your mouth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dec. 28, 2014; packaged in a weighty ceramic stein; tumbler glass. Golden pour (go figure) with shallow head & moderate lacing. Full aroma of overripe fruit & malt. Slightly sour; good bitterness, with some astringency. Not a world-class Belgian, perhaps, but quite enjoyable nonetheless - would have this again.
