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)

A tribute to a hard day’s work over and an upcoming visit to The Bruery. Pours a very cloudy honey amber with a pillowy white head. Sweet, honey citrus hops on the nose, with a bit of yeastiness - very aromatic. Flavor has a great punch, but is still refreshingly mild - gently bitter hops with a mild sweetness. Great balance in here, with the effervescence of a good Belgian. Really nice.

22oz bottle in a mug. Aroma of nice Belgian yeast with some hoppy undertones. Flavor of the yeast and some hops. Hops strong during the finish. Full bodied. A really good beer, worth trying.

Ernest (6342) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, rocky, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, resin), with notes of plastic, sawdust, and metal, light notes of cotton candy, lemon zest, acetone, and celery. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium to full body, syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. I gotta be honest, it’s downright unpleasant, almost repulsive. Lots of off notes in the nose, and the aftertaste is just as dirty. This is almost impossible to drink. There are some nice notes here and there, but they’re nearly enveloped by the flaws. Looks great, but it’s a drain pour.

Hazy, pale, gold with big, flotsam, white head / Bretty, dry, nose of hops and orchard fruit / Medium body, dry, creamy, and slightly sour, with good balance and lightly bitter finish / Astringent flavors of apple, hay, resin, lemon, coriander, oak, and brett / Very nice in an extremely dry style.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Draft – Monk’s Café. Hazed gold, thick white foamy head. Lemony-citrus aromas warm to undercurrents of candied pear and white peppery yeast tones throughout. Peppered-citrus and floral-like flavors round with a soft fruity yeast backbone. Medium to full bodied, prickly carbonation, fruity, bittersweet finish. A very well done American / Belgian IPA…

BeerandBlues2 (10039) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a large, rocky and frothy white head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, cookie, grain), heavy hops (flowers, herbs, pine, citrus), light yeast with notes of apple, grape, and pear. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and lacing.

phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2010
750 ml bottle from South Bay Drugs. Later saw this at Ludlow Wines, around the corner from me. Go figure. Anyway, it pours a smooth, cloudy gold color with a big, rocky eggshell white head that craters and leaves a ton of soapy lacing. Initial aroma of citrusy hops, followed by yeast, pale malts, pine, floral notes, coriander, straw, and resin. Flavor of orange and grapefruit citrus, dry hops, pine resin, pale malts, yeast, mild spices, pineapple, and a touch of soap. Medium-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a mouthfeel like fresh fruit juice. Pretty solid, almost like a Belgian DIPA.

Braudog (5890) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy and golden with a poofy head that eventually gives up. The aroma is sweet and esthery. It drinks with a bit of a spicy aspect, earthy and slightly dirty. Quite subtle for an 8.5% kicker ... watch out! (#3919, 6/8/2010)
