3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium yellow, slight haze, good white foam that dies down to sticky lacing .. . reminds me of an imperial saison, pepper, honey .. . light muddled mouth, a nice brew but not worthy of its rareness, still honored to have tried it with friends though.. .. Me fail English? That’s unpossible.

750, capped. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Hazy golden medium amber. Loose sudsy tan head. Menthol, medicinal nose. Softly fizzy lightish body. The menthol and the medicine come through on the mid-palate as well, predominantly. Lightly smoky, long wintergreen finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle #2124 of 2157 and served in my Duvel snifter, yeah a Bruery beer that is not over carbonated! Honey golden hue with a small frothy head and sheets of lace upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of apricot and pear esters, candi sugar, caramel, rye, pepper, clove, and some herbal hops. The taste starts malty and sugary sweet with some fruity notes. A hit of booze and light bitter adds balance. A spicy snap upon the finish rounds out a nice palate profile. The mouth feel is slightly sticky and aggressive. Warming upon the chest. All in all easily the best of the beers I have had so far from this brewery. Look forward to trying more in the future at this point.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
#592 of 2157. Pours an orange amber with a thin white head. Smells of Belgian sugar, spice, oranges, some dry hints. Tastes lightly spicy and peppery with some nice malty touches. Dry peppery finish. I could see this beer really shining in about 1-2 years. Right now, the flavors don’t quite mesh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 64 of 2157:   Vibrant amber, fairly clear, light carbonation, small white frothy head, spotty lacing.   Malt sticky nose. &Nbsp Alcohol infused pear/apple skin as well.   Seems a little peppery too.   Very sticky on the tongue.   This one is heavy, sticky, malt forward.   Has a biscuity aspect as well.   Not as bright or intense as most other Belgian Goldens, but this one seems heavier.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Finish is warming, very warming.   Seems bright on the finish.   Certainly comes across as a Golden, a VERY big Golden.   Big thanks to Tim for this treat!

Murky orange/yellow with a tight white head. Nice fruity, yeasty pale malt aromas. Medium body with light carbonation. Big spiced fruit flavors of apricot, pears, peaches, with a mild bready yeastiness. The 11% abv is well cloaked. Nice now, probably better later.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A big and sweet strong Belgian blonde ale like many others. Good brew even if no special character.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when about 6 months of age. Sent my way by Kegbear. Thanks a lot Craig
The look: Cloudy golden copper topped by a medium white head
In long: The nose is very herbal and yeasty. A big yeasty nourishing body full of cereals. Medium fruity with note of apples (red and green) and various tropical fruits. A strong herbal/floral sensation makes me wonder if the beer is spiced. Alcohol is a bit apparent but not bothersome. A little bit too much sugary sweetness for me. Nice mouthfeel with lively carbonation. An overall sensation of déjà-vu, this is the type of solid brew that does nothing to stand out. Still, if all breweries first batch were that good I wouldn’t mind being a guinea pig, which is almost what people call me anyway, except I’m from Canada.

Nice fruity aromas of pear, banana, spice, and yeast. Pours a clear tone of gold with no head whatsoever. Flavors of light fruit, pear, banana, clovey spice, and light alcohol. Finishes with a light peppery bitterness. Carbonation is soft and the alcohol is lightly warming.
