Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a wine glass. The beer pours a fairly clear straw-colored yellow, with a large, dense white head. The nose shows fairly prevalent character of what initially seem to be earthy European noble hops, with indications of the use of piney American hops beginning to come through as the beer warms. These aromas, paired with the Belgian yeast esters, create an interesting melange of notes. The palate shows the spritzy, palate cleansing, dry, and slightly spicy character of the best examples of the Belgian Golden Strong style; with the addition of a substantial amount of flavor hops in the mid-palate and finish. The general feel of the beer is complex and layered, but the flavors didnít always seem to perfectly match one another; especially with regard to using west coast hop in quantity in the beerís flavor profile. Overall, very interesting and nicely executed, as with many of the beers from this excellent brewery.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Pours a cloudy darker yellow golden color with fizzy white head. Citrus, light fruits, doughy bready, and cereal on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, the yeast gives it a wine cooler like mouthfeel. Finishes with more fruit, and a little white wine-like note.
