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)

pours a semi-hazy orange with a large white fluffy head, and some lacing. smell is of sweet fruits, banana, some spice, and farmhouse yeast. taste is somewhat sour, malt, a little yeast, sweet fruits, and a touch of banana, ends a bit on the oily side with some bitterness.

Bottle. <P> Darker-than-expected maize pour with a big white head. Nose is almost saison-like, strong on the lemon and with honey. The citrus dominates the initial impression of the flavor, wow, tons of lemon juice atop lemon zest, pushing into the Fantome vein without the Fantome house character of course. Aggressive spice character, though I can’t say that it’s coming from anything other than the yeasts. Ample hop close with plenty of alcohol making itself known more in late flavor than in heat. Straight out of the fridge, I’m pleasantly surprised but as the beer warms it gets more buttery and cloying and I have to knock down a point or two. Still, an entirely reasonable outing from the Bruery.

Murky honey-like pour produced a fluffy eggshell head that left significant lacing. Nose shows freshly cut grass, bright citrus, fruity and floral, with a bit of yeast present. Flavor is similar with a nice hoppy finish. Nice carbonation that really ignites the palate. Wish this was available in AZ.

Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a rocky yellow head. The aroma has notes of hops and malt. The aroma has notes of citrus, malt, and straw, leading to a bitter alcoholic finish.

75 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours hazy yellow with a bubbly white head. Aroma is citrusy, peachy and yeasty. Peachy and zesty. Bitter and slight citrusy into a mellow yeasty base. Bitter, citrusy and yeasty into a dry and vague phenolic finish.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Hazy golden with a lovely, staying, creamy, white head. Nice lacings. Lovely aroma with hops, grapefruity, green apple. Some yeast, oranges. Mild vinious, fairly malty sweet. Medium carbonation, creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour starts nicely malty sweet, some estery yeast, light oranges. Good hops bite, lots of grapefruit and pine. Long, lingering vinious and fine bitter aftertaste. Very good and balanced hoppy Belgian style beer.

Well, the PHX crew had this so I drank my bottle alone. ;) Pours a hazy golden with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is hops, grass, malt, fruits, yeasts. Flavor is fruity, yeasty, wheat, grass, a good dose of hop bitterness, very balanced, wow this is really fantastic.

750ml bottle. Pours a nice cloudy orange with a big, pilloy head. Not much head retention. Immediate notes of grassy/citrusy hops on the nose. Holy shit, I was not expecting that from a BSA. The palate goes from oranges, spices, grassy, and earthy fruit to a somewhat bitter finish courtesy of the hops. Overall, this is a very solid beer. However, compared to what I expect from BSAs (dark fruit and booze), I was left begging for more.

Big thanks to the state of Wisconsin for this bottle. From a 750mL bottle. Pour is hazy orange with yellow highlights. Large white head that quickly fades. Large hop presence in the aroma. Orange, nice clove-like spice character, and maybe some bananas. Flavor is similar with strong citrus flavors followed by a nice spicy clove flavor. Beer finishes slightly bitter and grassy. Pretty solid offering.
