Crafted exclusively for Trader Joe’s this delicious beer is made in Quebec, Canada, and brewed according to the time honored traditions of classic Belgian Ales. It strikes the perfect balance between spices, hop, and malt profiles. With champagne-like effervescence and aromatic notes of citrus peel and ginger, this beer is malty, mildly sweet and hoppy with a subtle, spicy finish. It is sure to please the most finicky beer drinkers.

Light hazy orange. Sweet fruity, light spice, ginger, light herbal notes. Thin carbonated body. Pretty solid but a little too mago for me.

Trader Joe’s Providential Belgian Style Golden Ale is really good for a grocery store brand - probably because it is made by a well-respected brewer. Pour is a cloudy yellow but the fizzy white head thins too quickly. Aroma is an intoxicating sweet blend of fruit and spices. Taste is also sweet and fruity with some spice notes -- a nice blend of hop, malt and yeast profiles. Providential is well worth the buy at your Trader Joe’s.

Fantomasus (289) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a foamy white head that thins. Aroma has some potency: cereal, floral, dough, and some clove. Flavor is way off balance an super sour. It does not please this beer drinker.

Nice fluffy head and a bright fruity aroma and flavor. Very juicy although a bit sweet with some tartness. A very good beer for the price.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 (Bottle). Well recommended from my friend Linda. Clear light-golden complexion with long-lasting white head. Fresh aroma of yeast and spices. Flavor of Belgian yeast with some citrus, banana, spices and subtle malt sweetness. An excellent representation of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From 750ml, corked, bought at Trader Joes for about $6-7

Aroma: Belgian golden/tripel! slight spicy, banana, floral

Appearance: golden, cloudy, fluffy white head

Taste: light sweet, light bitter, light sour

Palate: light body, average carbonation, lingering spicy finish

Overall: A really good Belgian beer for value. If this had a different label, it’d sell for twice as much. Nice Belgian yeast, almost like Unibroue’s La Fin du Monde tripel. Some spice mixed with some fruitiness. Good balance. Leans more to the Tripel’s spicy/fruity style than Golden Ale’s fruity/spicy, but nonetheless, a good and solid Belgian Golden Ale. If doing a blind tasting of Belgian beer, I’d definitely include this one since it’s good value and good taste will surprise those sampling.

Bottle. Musty yeast, lemon, malt and herb aroma. Hazy pale yellow with giant white head. Lightly sweet musty lemon. light malt, and mildly bitter herb flavor. Body on the lighter side. Pleasant.
