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)

Big offwhite head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Earthy musty herbal aroma with spicy floral perfumy notes. Dry-sweet earthy floral musty taste with papery barnyard and spice notes. Light-to-mid body. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry spicy pine needles and earth aftertaste with perfumy floral barnyard notes. It’s nice, but also feels a bit unclean, which makes me uneasy about the flavour. (0.75l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

750 ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is lightly sweet honey, light cloves, floral hoppiness, with hints of bubblegum and pine. Clear yellow with a big pale yellow, heavily lacing head. Flavor is lightly bitter, lightly sweet, with bits of pine, yeast, and light caramel. Finishes with light piney bitterness.

750 ml bottle. Pours a lovely, almost glowing, red/yellow, like the sun going down over the beach after a hot summer day. Huge, white foamy head. Use a Trappist glass, you’ll need every bit of space. Aroma has hints of lemon, grass, pink grapefruit, with a dash of pepper. Flavor was mildly spice, with notes of pepper, coriander as well as the aforementioned fruits. Clean dry palate with high carbonation. This one is worth seeking out at least once.

Nice looking golden ale. Some hops and lemon... refreshing. I personally prefer more of a strong flavor of something.

High hopes for this one. Beer was cloudy. Aroma: yeasty, fruit notes, some oxidization ( I felt the yeast and hops clashed) Taste: there was a sourness that felt out of place, caramel sweetness, hints of fruity hops, firm bitterness Not an exciting beer, but not so unpleasant that it had to be footbalmed (drain pour)

The Big Hunt, DC sample glass: Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma and taste are kind of strange (although, I know I had a beer that tasted like this before): kind of earthy, weird yeast flavor, lemon, but more like the cleaning fluid than the fruit... I won’t say soapy, but almost. Somebody else said plastic, maybe that is the metaphor that I am looking for. In any case, I was ready to buy a glass of this, but the sample convinced me otherwise. Not my thing man.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a wine glass. The beer pours a fairly clear straw-colored yellow, with a large, dense white head. The nose shows fairly prevalent character of what initially seem to be earthy European noble hops, with indications of the use of piney American hops beginning to come through as the beer warms. These aromas, paired with the Belgian yeast esters, create an interesting melange of notes. The palate shows the spritzy, palate cleansing, dry, and slightly spicy character of the best examples of the Belgian Golden Strong style; with the addition of a substantial amount of flavor hops in the mid-palate and finish. The general feel of the beer is complex and layered, but the flavors didn’t always seem to perfectly match one another; especially with regard to using west coast hop in quantity in the beer’s flavor profile. Overall, very interesting and nicely executed, as with many of the beers from this excellent brewery.

Bottle shared at CL Rosso release. Pours hazy gold with a yeasty aroma, fruit, citrus, a bit of lemon and herb. Dry and tart, very interesting. Wasn’t really a big fan of this one.
