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)

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.

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 (6895) - 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.

This is becoming one of my new favs. Smells citrus and creamy. Grapefruit too. Taste is well balanced. Hops hit you on the back end and it has a pleasant burn on the front. Yums.

750 ml bottle. Served in a tulip glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with a 2 inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is citrusy (grapefruit) and pine hops, pineapple, orange peel and some bready malt. Taste is fruity and hoppy. There’s tropical fruit, pine and citrusy hops, peppery spice, and some bready malt flavors that I notice. There’s also a light lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s refreshing and has moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, it’s easy and enjoyable to drink. I think this is a good, solid overall brew. I liked it.

nick76 (4257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2010
The aroma is not quite right but it has caramel malt, grassy/citrusy hops, paper, roux, and a touch of funky dish water. The appearance is hazy gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma but much better. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is a good beer but kind of strange in the aroma.

Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2010
this beer has a nice amount of aroma and a solid palate with a creamy head. the hops are bitter and spicy. their is a off flavor with the malts that leaves it lacking. decent enough.

Nose is pretty decent with a nice amount of fresh citrus hops. The taste however, is stale grainy malts, lots of sweetness (wow, another underattenuated bruery beer...), light bitterness. Body is fairly watery. Blah.
