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)

This beer is underrated. Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Fruity citrus and tangerine notes, light hazy pine and floral hop tones. Yeasty dry and herbal with a bread y floral citrus hoppiness. The herbal and floral green hop tones settle the citrus and tangerine notes very nicely. Delicious.

750 ml bottle shared by Eric. I got a large glass of opaque, almost thick dregs, and perhaps it limits the comprehensiveness of my rating, I’ll try to re-rate someday. Anyway, pours a very cloudy orange color looks very odd with a medium white head. The nose is sweet hops, grapefruit. The flavor is akin to lemonade, grapefruit, citrus, lots of yeast. Almost like a cider. Odd, not bad though.

Bottle at Ryan’s hotel room after EBF’s Night of the Barrels. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Hoppy pine and citrus aromas. Musky, more citrus. Citrus hop bitterness and a bit of hay and Styrofoam.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Very light pale yellow pour with lots of haze - almost opaque. Very citrusy fruity American hop aroma. Some sweetness. Musty sweet flavor which fades to bitter hops on the finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Sperryville Corner Store. Pours a light gold color with a foamy white head. The nose has notes of pine, a bit of citrus peel, and Belgian yeast. The taste is pretty bitter with lots of soap, pine, lemon peel, and yeast notes. Not quite what I was expecting. The malt notes are hidden by all the hops. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation and a long, bitter finish. Overall it wasn’t bad, but a bit too soapy for my tastes.

sebletitje (6969) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2010
Tap @ OTH. Pours cloudy golden, white head. Aroma is hoppy, lemongrass and spices. Piney hops, yeasty aroma. Hard to describe the tantalizing goodness of hops, lots of freshness in this one. Flavor, dry hopping is amazing. Drinks like a Belgian IPA. Belgian yeast palate with some spices and piney hops, wheat and a mild malty touch in the background. At 8.5% this beer is smooth and complex. Keeps a fresh lemongrass and citrus fruit finish, clean dry hopped aftertaste.
