The flavor of Scratch #104 originates in the unique Belgian Golden Ale yeast strain, which is fermented at a slightly higher temperature than normal for ale. Slightly fruity with a well-rounded mouthfeel and semi-dry, lingering bitter finish, this alluring Triple Golden Ale is steeped in the tradition of strong ales originally brewed in Belgium. The addition of cane sugar bolsters the alcohol considerably but adds plenty of sweetness to mask the significant alcohol content. Take heed! Scratch #104 is quite stealthy and smooth for a 9.1% ABV ale.

Very well done. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is candy yeast with some banana.

Served on-tap at the Brewery.

A - Pours clear golden yellow with a small half finger tall white head leaving minimal lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of lots of banana, pear and other fruity esters, light peppery spice, a bit of bubble gum and some light booze. The sugary sweetness is ever present, and the booze creeps in as it warms up. This is the best part of the beer.

T - Starts off with a quick hit of sugary sweetness quickly giving way to the aforementioned fruitiness, muted peppery spice and light bubble gum flavors. Finish is still pretty sweet with a bit of dryness from the booze, lingering on the palate longer and longer as it warms up.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet, fruity feel from start to finish. Booze starts creeping in as it warms up to room temperature. The combo of strong sweetness and growing booziness really started to wear on me by the end of my glass.

O - I enjoyed this one for what it is, but I have come to realize that I am just not the biggest fan of these kinds of beers. If this is your type of beer then you will probably like this one, if your like me it’s just another scratch beer for the memory book.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Nice straw color. A sweet sugary aroma. Body well carbonated. Taste is a strong sweet sugar taste with some fruit and a bit of alcohol presence in the aftertaste.
