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)

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy warm golden with a classic fine lively Belgian effervescence and a thick white foamy head. Big hops with lemon aroma. Lively, bubbly body carries a bright, sharp-edged bitter initial flavor, balanced with salt. Overall a less heavy, less bready beer than many Belgians. Very likeable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Cloudy golden with a white head. Fruity, yeasty and spicy aroma with some hops. Flavor has some sweetness, fruitiness, spicy yeast, mild bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Alright.

Pours a semi hazy yellow with a fluffy white head, quick diminishing. Aroma is bready, yeasty, banana, cloves etc. Taste- Light body, usual Belgian taste,thin body with slight fruit notes. Would have preferred more hop forward.

jdjuice (354) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Pours hazy gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is bready, banana esters, clove. Has that Belgian funk, but with a solid but not overpowering hoppiness. Well balanced and classy.

Hazed murky orange, foamy head, light soapy lace. Belgian yeast aroma, fruity with clove, leather, funk-but clean funk, citrus, lemon. Same in taste with some malt, lemon tart finish, clove gets bigger with warming, dry some grassiness. Not into this style... American style Belgians. Its ok to me.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste Belgian yeast, fruity, a bit boozy. I thought this was good, I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a big quickly diminishing white head that leaves ok lacing. Aroma is of yeast, clove, weak citrus and hops. Flavors of apple, yeast, sour cherries, light body, thin texture, lightly sour and bitter, fizzy carbonation and a light bitter and sour finish.
