3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Track 84 - Warwick, RI. Aroma is somewhat confused
blend of pithy citrus rind dryness and some wetter yellow plum
sweetness. Strongly estery and phenolic as it warms. Flavor is
sweeter than I expected, but gives a nice dryness in the finish
from the Belgian yeast character. I was looking for more hop
punch, but got a well-balanced and flavorful Belgian Golden
Strong that lacked some of the more complex apple, pear, and pale
fruit tones. Nice body, extremely drinkable, and not showing
anywhere near 9%. Delicious, otherwise.

As you can expect from the name, the hops are well represented troughout both aroma and taste. Well balanced, nicely drinking beer. A must drink for the lovers of hoppy beers, but may be challenging for the ones that are just starting to explore craft beers since it is quite bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from biernavi.de. Golden, light amber clear body with creamy long-lasting white head. Aroma of citrus, belgian yeast, brown sugar, some spices and some alcohol. Nice taste! More spices, nutty belgian yeast, fruits, citrus, a bit malt and it finishes hoppy and dry. The mouthfeel is full, creamy to oily, with a medium carbonation. A really tasty, elegant, greatly balanced hoppy Belgian strong ale. The high ABV isn’t really noticeable, very smooth to drink. Enjoyed this a lot!

This golden ale poured with a thin off-white head. The flavor is fruity and spicy with a subtle, but tasty hop presence.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blonde dorée claire, effervescence moyenne, mousse tombe rapidement. Malts bien présents en entrée rapidement suivis par une amertume houblonnée qui ne tient hélas pas la longueur. La chaleur de l’alcool se fait sentir mais pas trop.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Clear golden yellow with a long-lasting white head, great lacing. Aromas are less hoppy than I might have though, but noble hop type spice and floral notes are there, alongside spicy contributions form the yeast, and some lemon. Touch of alcohol noticeable, but only a touch. Having said that, it slips down nicely for it’s strength. Rich and full-bodied for such a pale beer. Nice.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
9,5%ABV. Bitter Ale. Cor dourada com espuma branca e persistente. No aroma, o floral e herbáceo dos 7 tipos de lúpulo se faz presente. Sabores de lúpulo floral, cítrico e malte com doçura, lembrando frutas em calda, muito bem equilibrada. Detalhe, vou tomar os 750 ml sozinho! Comemoração de um novo ano!
