A slightly bitter, golden colored beer with a good head.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2009
Thisted tasting. Courtesy of Fonefan. Comes as Grand Cru. It is golden with a white, creamy head. The aroma has notes of perfumed malt, cabbage and yeast. The flavour has sweetness and a citrussy bitterness and notes of malt, light fruit and yeast. It is surprisingly thin-bodied, a bit of a disappointment.

ChainGangGuy (4602) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, bright, straw-colored body with a thin, white head. Smell: Slight maltiness paired with notes of flowers, stale spices, booze, and a fair whiff of yeast. Taste: Soft pale maltiness with sweet tastes of table sugar and honey. Encroaching alcohol character nearly from the get-go. A tad phenolic. Herbal, floral hop character with a medium-low bitterness. Touch of spice. Drying, effervescent finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Highly carbonated. Drinkability: Pass. At best, it’s a mediocre Belgian Strong, but, then again, I’ve never been impressed by the St. Sebastiaan line.

Bottle (750ml) as "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru". Clear yellow golden with a nice white head. Aroma - yeasty and fruity with some light peaches and apricots notes . Sweet, with overripe fruits, some spices and yeast, quite mellow. Medium-bodied with oily texture. Drinkable.

Like the dark, this beer doesn’t age. It is flat, but the flavor and aroma is ok. Once again I wonder why a Belgian brewer is following the German purity law. Some fruit in the aroma and flavor. Belgian yeast flavor as well, and I bet this had decent palate at one time. Hazy gold but no visible sediment.

marcus (8010) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 14, 2007
This golden ale poured with a nice white head that, unfortunately, didn’t last long. The flavor, though a bit thin, was fruity and tasty, with a spicy/peppery finish. A decent brew, but nothing special.

I picked this one up at the Central Market. It comes in a neat resealable bottle in 16 oz size. I think I must be hallucinating, because I’m pretty sure I bought beer, but this looks, smells, and tastes like apple juice.If you are able to get past that, it’s too bad of a brew, but for me, it was a little too difficult to get past. Give it a shot if you like apple juice.

Pours a light cloudy golden amber color with yeast visible in the pour. Had a nice white head that disipated quickly. Has notes of carmel and honey but they are overpowered by the bitterness. Overall not a bad beer, but not memerable except for the bottle.

You know, not one I really liked. I guess it is what it was supposed to be, but if you like this style, you’ll like this one. It was light in color, nice head. Came in a ceramic jug. It was sweet I thought, like Deus and Hennepin.
