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)

750ml bottle. Quite the gusher - the bottle cap almost exploded off and then the white foam just kept on poring out - so be careful. Once things settled down in the glass I was left with a slightly hazy light amber pour with a nice fluffy white head that slowly settled to a white with some tan elemented thin layer - great lacing down the glass as well. Booze is hidden behind belgian yeast, citrus hops, grass and lemon zest. Somewhat sweet, medium body, prickly/hot from booze, becomes quite astringent and bitter towards the end, also very dry and you get pepper and coriander. Wouldn’t mind trying this with a little bit of time on it to see if everything gets a little more balanced.

Draft at The Pony Bar. My guess was that this was a rye pale ale or a rye saison. I thought I had 2 rye saisons in a row, but it appears now that neither was really a rye saison. Astringent and mostly dry, with some piney hops in the aroma. Good.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Draft at Dexters. Filtered golden-orange. Big fluffy white head. Sweet herbal beer, somewhere between a Tripel and a Golden Ale. Zesty chamomile, coriander taste. Refined effervescent mouthfeel, typical of Bruery products. Quite drinkable and enjoyable, but rather one dimensional.

scarletfire65 (1323) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2011
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 (23426) - 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 (3222) - 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.
