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)

In the bottle from Tampa Total Wine. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Pomegranate and pine aroma. A bit thin and boring in body. Has even hop flavors throughout- Amarillo or Simcoe? An OK beer, but not outstanding.

750ml from World of Beer/Tampa. Pours a very cloudy amber with a big white head. Aroma is hops, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and maybe some peaches. Flavor is grapefruit, peaches, finishes in a fair amount of pepper and a little hop bitterness. Light/medium mouthfeel with a nice peppery warmth. The flavor was a bit of a letdown following the great aroma...

steelcitybrew (430) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Had a 750 oz bottle. poured a murky, golden color with a medium white head. Aroma was a sweet, grapefruit, cherry, earthy smell. It smelled great. Taste was a bit light in flavor though. grapefruit, with citrus, pepper notes to it. Palate was real watery, light mouthfeel, alcohol warms you up a bit but also clamy. It was decent but i was disappointed in this brew.

boamr (309) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head to it. Has a citrus hop aroma with a little Belgium yeast in there. Taste is the same and it finishes nice and crisp. Not a bad brew but seems more like an IPA than anything. Wasn’t what I was expecting.

Bomber. shared with potbeercollege. poured a hazy squeezed juice color, with a thin white head. big pine and floral aromas. taste: sticky pine, hop bitterness, awesome hop flavor, almost like you can chew on the greens, little grapefruit zest at the end, nice dry finish.

emacgee (3874) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Pours a bright straw gold with some haze and a turbulent carbonation. Head forms unrestrained and easily occupies half of the volume of the glass, sticky billowy white. First whiff is very nice, intermingling of fresh resinous and citrusy hops and earthy/funky Belgian yeast giving the impression of Mandarin orange flesh, pink grapefruit, hibiscus and white pepper. Flavor retains most of the positives of the aroma, citrusy, with a nice pepper character, dry with some lemon zest. Palate is very nice and dry exhibiting a lively carbonation. Thoroughly enjoyed.

bb (6697) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Bottle. Golden amber beer with a huge cream colored head. Spice and yeast aroma with light hops. Spice and yeast flavor with bready malts and light hops. Medium bodied. Spice and yeast lingers with earthiness and light malt.

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Draft at maproom, pours hazy golden orange with white head. A really big herbal, spicy hop aroma with a big spicy yeast and phonlic character behind it. Flavor has phenols with earthy, herbal, and spicy hop notes, while a semi sweet bready malt base compliments, and that big spicy yeast dominates the finish and palate. It’s not perfect but it remains fairly dry throughout and thirst quenching, alcohol is noticed in the middle but dries out and makes this dangerously drinkable.

Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20100618]

750, capped. Pours a slightly hazy burnished medium gold with a loose and somewhat sudsy white head. Decent eggy lace scattered around the sides of the glass. Perfumey, estery nose, bubblegum and cloves. A nice spicy sweet mix, smells bracing and refreshing. Creamy medium body with fizzy carb that’s bordering on the prickly. Toasty crackers on the mid-palate, but mostly tons of spice and bubble gum, maybe a bit of watermelon too. Very complex, drinkable, and refreshing. Not super hoppy, not like the label would suggest, though there are certainly little sparks of bitterness and herbal notes mixed in, and it’s all balanced and coherent. But this one’s really about a yeasty complexity for my money.
