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)

Clear, golden pour from bottle at Moe Joe’s in Plainfield, IL. Big white head with good retention. Lots of fruity esters in aroma. Complex taste with Sweet up front followed by light fruit and hops. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Dry finish caps off a great Belgian Golden Strong!

Garrold (2704) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle. Curious Hop, Otley. Hazy, dark yellow. Thick, bubbly, lasting white head. Nice ripe pear and peachy hop first off. Brioche sweet malts. Banana toffee. Some spicy shizzle. Taste is sweet, turning dry, and light bitter. Smooth, full, squishy mouthfeel. Finish is when the hops kick in. Leafy and herbal. Very drinkable.

Flight at HopCat in Madison. Was very tart and crisp with a kick -- comparable to grapefruit juice with a little paint thinner! Was really unique and interesting, but I was grateful for the smaller portion!

willisread (953) - 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.
