Clear and bubbly like champagne. Taste resembles a slightly bitter wine. Tastes almost like a a cider.

Bottle from Hop City. Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma of bread. Tastes of malt, yeast and a hint of bitter hops. A nice Belgian ale.

From the Bottle at Burgers and Beer in El Centro. Love a good Belgian ale. This one was an average Belgian ale. Still better and a good lager.

fakebeersnob (288) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Slight yeast and straw. Does now smell like a Belgian strain. Not a good sign. Very light, clear orangish-copper color. Taste has a bit of corn, and yeast..might be a belgian strain, but if so it is very faint. Not as strong as even the usual session Belgian ales. Very watery, For this clear of a beer, not seeing bubbles rise. Besides the brief yeast upfront, and the mouthfeel at the end, would never guess this was a beer - let alone a Belgian style ale. Drinkable. Will not buy again. Might be the worst Belgian ale I have had due to lack of flavor, complexity, and anything that makes this style enjoyable.

jake65 (3236) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle, poured on the back patio to relax and soak up the 100* heat. Good color, dark golden and a small sandy head. Noticeably Belgian yeast in the nose, but not overwhelmingly so. Floral and slightly dirty, there is nice grassy and floral note. Really hit the mark on what I was hoping for; a sessionable golden ale with a light bit of Belgian yeast.

puboflyons (2873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 5, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is pale yellow with a quick white head. The nose is toast, bread, mild sugar, mild spice, and grass. The mouthfeel is light. Toasted sweetness to begin with a slightly bitter and spicy finish. Easy to drink
