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)

Slightly hazy golden, monstrously fluffy white head that sticks around for the duration. Aroma is yeasty, fresh dough, lemon rind, spicy, grassy, slightly funky. Light bodied with above average carbonation. The flavor is fresh spicy yeast, citrus, banana, with a slightly bitter and alcoholic finish.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2011
On tap at Haymarket. Pours hazy light golden with white head. Aromas of banana, lemon, piney and grassy hops, and some light malts. Flavors spicy yeast, bananas, grassy hops, and some lemon. Nice refreshing beer that hides alcohol well. Pretty solid and surprising.

omhper (22991) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
Bottled. Clear golden, huge head. Juicy citric nose. Sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Winegum, perfume, citrus and coriander mingle with marzipan. Elegant modern style hopped up Belgo ale with mild but growing bitterness and a slight tingle of brandy.

Beerdedone (3204) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a fluffy white head that left minimal lacing. Hoppy earthy floral aroma with pine, fruit and belgian yeast. Flavor was sweet malts, yeast, light pine, citrus, fruit and a bit of caramel with a smooth medium body. Overall a very good brew.

jzzbassman (1577) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottled. Hazy golden pour with a large white head. Aroma of lemon rind, pepper, and baking bread. Very fruit, with melon and citric tartness, carried on lively carbonation.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Pours light slightly hazy gold with massive 4 finger head and artful lacing. Aroma is grass, hay, lemon peel, citric tartness, and spice. Taste is lemon peel, spice, hay, then a tart/lightly bitter finish. Body is light, oily, highly effervescent, long tangy bitter finish, not a hint of 8.5%abv. Overall, delicious and champagne-like; a great value at $10 a bottle and definetly something I would seek again.

blipp (7904) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Resinous and spicy aroma, with peppery and piney notes. The flavor has resinous piney notes, fruity esters, and peppery notes. Good stuff.

dagimp (936) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2011
From a 750ml bottle into a Victory snifter. Pours with a TON of fluffy white head. Little to no lacing but a tiny bit of foam on the top. Really beautiful golden hue. Just as a Belgian Golden should be. Aromas of alcohol, flowers and Tang. Mouthfeel is very moderate, if a bit over carbonated. Letting it sit for a while really helps out and brings out the flavor. Tastes of alcohol, funk, lemon, flowers, hops and chalk. A really solid beer. I like it and I’ll probably buy it again.

Oakes (15277) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
On tap at Naja’s. Hazy blonde. Some light pear esters and spicy hops on the nose. Light spicy palate with some sweet, pineapple/pear accents. Not bad, but not worth passing up a Duvel for or anything like that.
