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)

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours with a slightly cloudy, golden body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with notes of wine and yeast with a little bitterness. Light bodied, highly carbonated and dry.

Bottle at Oliver Twist. Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of yeast, pear, clove, spices and light hops. Yeast, pear, apple, orange, clove, mango, light floral hop flavors. Medium body and high carbonation.

willisread (720) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
750ml bottle from Tanakaya. Shared with Micah. Poured into a Duvel glass. Pours a hazy orange gold with a big soapy head that hangs around throughout. Aromas of orange, lemon, grapefruit and some resiny hops. Taste is more of the same with the lemon and sour orange really standing out. Soft carbonation with a nice dry finish. Lots of floral hops. Good stuff.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Ambar clara, turbia. 2 dedos de espuma poco consistente que desaparece pronto. Cítrica en el aroma, lima limón. Rica textura en boca. Naranja amarga y mandarina predominando sobre la malta que también se hace notar. Tono alcohólico y seco, estilo tripel pero bastante más lupulada. Muy rica.

madchemist83 (158) - USA - MAY 19, 2015
Aroma is your standard belgian yeast funk albeit a bit subtle, almost dilute. Nice murky pour with a frothy white head. Refreshing dry taste. Hop bitterness married well with yeast bitterness. Nice spicy finish.

DrSilverworm (8339) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2015
750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. I suspect that this has 2 or more years of age on it. No legible date on the bottle. Clear golden orange color. Hazy with second pour. Active-looking bubbles of carbonation. Bigger off-white head, audibly fizzing to a thin layer, then a ring. Pretty big sour taste up front -- moderate to bigger sour, which I don’t think is intentional, but it’s actually tasting pretty good. Light to moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Nice lemony, kind of spicy aroma, bready malt. Peppery. Kind of oaky. Some apricot. Bit of vegetal. Biscuity. Surprisingly alright overall.. Mild bite to it, but it’s nice to sip on. Bigger body. Kind of soft, effervescent lighter carbonation. Mild slick finish. Mild roughness, with too big sips, and mild bite. Starts to drag a bit as I continue on, but overall, pretty interesting and not awful.

yusuke0sawada (1) - - MAY 4, 2015 does not count
very good citrus aroma. If it's categorized as golden ale, I like more strong taste & strong alcohol.

CousinBrenden (125) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Wonderous Belgian spicy yeast aroma. It all comes out so well with champgne like lively co2. Flavor is lemon powder and spicy mild coriander. This will creep up on you as the finish invites more consumption.

Franckg (439) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Smell of orange, sourness, spiced yeast and citrus. Taste is sour orange, banana peels, hop, cloves and herbs. Crisp and fresh. High carbonation. Short but fruity bitterness. Very closed to a Belgian tripel. I’d even say it’s an American tripel.

Oscbert (1130) - 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
