COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style ale, golden and hoppy. Not quite evil, yet not to be trusted, this Golden Ale is effervescent, dry, hoppy and crisp-you’ll want to keep an eye out. (ABV: 8.5%, IBU: 35, SRM: 4, Format: 750 mL bottles and draft)

Nice golden color, clear, white foamy head. Spicy hop aroma and flavor are assertive but not overpowering. Dry alcohol with honey malt undertones. Very interesting and enjoyable.

markducommun (189) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Very cloudy pale orange-yellow, with a light white head. Intense melon, some banana, clove. Slight bitterness-tanginess initially, bitterness ramps up towards finished, but is balanced by some sweetness. Alcohol is quite upfront, medium carbonation, mid-light body, oily. Very good overall, strong but well balanced.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle, 8.5%. Sweetish, spicy, fruity and dusty aroma. Cloudy pale yellow colour. Very big stable white head. The flavour is citric, sweet and spicy. Rather boozy. Not as hoppy as hoped. Very high carbonation.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle @ D-Day in Mojnlandet :-) Pours hazy light straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and yeast. Sourish, fruity aroma with notes of yeast and flowers and touches of hops. Slightly vinous aftertaste. Soft carbonation. OK but I know more exciting ways to be up to some mischief.

Hazy, dark golden. Airy and rocky white head. Fresh, fruity and hoppy aroma. Sweetish flavour, grapes with vinous bitterness. Fizzy carb, rather dry finish.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2014
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea via SB. Gyllenfärgad, klar men med lite fint jästsediment. Fin blommig och fruktig doft av apelsinskal, apelsinsaft, persika. Fin krispig munkänsla, relativt torr, citrusskalsbeska, fruktiga jäst smaker. Jag tänker en torr, men fruktig krispig trippel och en riktigt riktigt bra sådan. Så gott.

heavy (2127) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2014
10/11 A 0.75 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, huge thanks for sharing! It poured hazy pale golden body with big head. Some orange perfectly blended with sweeter fruits represented its aroma. Yeast was felt in the nose, as well as in the flavor, which was balanced between sweetness and bitterness, but notably inclining to the prior. Citrus, peach and vanilla were dominating, along with some fine herbal spices that I guess weren’t from the hops. Medium bodied with long creamy, caramel, fruity finish. Oh, and alcohol was completely hidden! Well, a nice enjoyable beer indeed, although nothing unseen. I mean it’s obvious they didn’t want to get out of the classical frames which is not necessary a bad thing.

Bottle. End. Golden haze. Aroma is unripe pears, touch of citrus, light grain, light funk, and some interesting spices. Similar flavor notes, grainy and clean dense bitter. Feel is unfiltered natural light. Nice and easy.
