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 home. Pours a hazy yellow with a ton of carbonation. Aroma is bready with some citrus rind. Taste is yeasty gold with a dry finish. Love this beer - reminiscent of another favorite, Duvel.

Oscbert (1105) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 5, 2015
Strong spicy yeasty aroma at first with citrusy orangey lemony hops, Pours a cloudy light golden color with lasting big frothy white head Strong hoppy citrusy flavor with lots of spicy yeast character Medium full bodied, a bit sticky, medium high CO2. Lingering citrusy peel finish An enjoyable beer. Not as refreshing as I would prefer for a citrusy type beer. A bit heavy on the palate and stomach. Glad I tried it but wouldn't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice example of the style. The beer that got me hooked on the Bruery. A bit sweet for a Golden Ale, but it works.

Mep3222 (728) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Banana nutty Belgian yeast aroma and flavors. Light beer overall but some good Belgian flavors. A little lemon citrusy To it as well. Almost a dry wine like feel to it, like a bit of white grape juice?? Good for sure but not as good as other bruery beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (3616) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
bottle. pours golden with a couple inch of thick, white, pillowy foam. lots of belgian style yeast on the nose. very soft mouthfeel. fairly fruity with some peppery hop notes on the finish. solid enough for the style but didn’t knock my socks off.

Old rating. Cloudy gold. Yeast, spice, banana, generally fruitiness, some brown sugar sweetness. Just okay.

Holmen1 (3193) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
Fra flaske på M2 mars-15, rett etter The Bruery Saison Rue: klar gylden med kort skum. Aroma og smak minner om foregående, men det er som om blomstene har visnet. Flat og uinteressant, og slett ikke "dry, hoppy and crisp". Har det skjedd noe feil med denne flasken? Må prøves en annen gang.

gunnar (6062) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear weak golden with no head at all. Weak farmhouse aroma. Taste is light sweet, some wood and oak, moderate bitter finish. Nice.

Holmen2 (1547) - NORWAY - MAR 23, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 23.03.15. Slightly cloudy. Not much head. Moderate and slightly fruity aroma. A bit bland taste, with hints of apples and pears. Low carbonation.

fidelis83 (2120) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Clear golden pour with a tall, chunky off white head. Aroma is floral, spicy and citrus hops, stone fruit esters, a little peppery spice, cereal, some wet limestone minerality and a hint of banana. Flavor is sweet cereal, stone fruit, spicy and citrus hops, pepper, medium breadiness, hay, bitter citrus, grass, and light licorice as it warms. Medium body, crisp and dry throughout with a medium, sharp, blanketing carbonation and a moderate acidity.
