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)

Bamsen78 (3315) - 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 (2149) - 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.

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.

Duchammer (62) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle poured a cloudy light orange yellow with a very white head. Aroma was mixture of citrus hops and the Belgium phenols. Taste was a bitter sweet with a little sourness from the yeast strain. Also there was a little hotness from the abv. Very well carbonated. mmm I love hoppy belgiums.

Stuedmaster (235) - Vista, California, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours clear gold with a huge white head that lasts and leaves chunky lacing. Aroma is grain, honey, grass, herbs, slight resin. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, with some slight citrus (sour). Full bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and long, bittersweet finish. It is well balanced, easy to drink for 8.5% abv, overall quite nice. Nice offering from Orange County, not normally known for high quality beer until recently.

Huge white, long-lasting head. Coppery color. Wonderfully dry with peppery finish. Subtle pear and grainy malt flavors.
