COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The radiant energy of the sun gives life to all that we enjoy. Flowing field of barley for malting, surging vines of ripening hops and even pure, clean water owe their vitality to the sun. Just as we do. So in crafting this unique, hazy orange-hued ale, we poured in nature’s great gifts of German malts and European hops to feed the dynamic yeast that we imported from Belgium. Here in the quiet tanks of Victory our yeast brought vitality to this Belgian style farmhouse ale. That energy has created impressions that range from lemon peel to black pepper, though such spices are not added. Great with a wide array of foods, count on the bright soul of Helios Ale to bring life to all of your meals!

Spicy lemon. Herbal. Big agressive flavors, but crisp and not overpowering. Long lingering spiciness and mild bitterness. Very good.

Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Really nice grab bag of Belgian stereotypes. Slightly sour nose, funky and citric. The taste is less tart, with allspice and pepper notes intermingling with the acidity. The mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy, which isn't surprising considering the rich head on pouring. Really enjoyable bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stuedmaster (269) - Vista, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
This is a good, solid Belgian style ale. It seems like a hybrid of a saison and a tripel. Pours cloudy, deep gold with a slight white head that quickly dissipates, lots of sediment floating around. Aroma of grass, sweet malt, dough,and earth. Nice balance of sweet and bitter, generously hopped but the malt backbone can match it. No real presence of sour like a normal saison. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, well balanced finish. Has a soft feel in the mouth, the alcohol is well hidden. Refreshing and easy to drink for 7.5% abv.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2014
A little barnyard funk, and spice meet the nose. A clear amber pour with a creamy white head and minimal lacing. The palate is much like the nose - funky yeast, citrus notes, and a peppery dry finish. The overall taste is on the bitter side. Light body and crisp carbonation. Overall, I liked it - very crisp and refreshing.

Pours a light golden color with white head. Yeast, spice, fruit, wheat and malt aroma and flavors. Medium light body and average carbonation with a floral and fruit finish.

Flaska från Systembolaget delad med @msbrindbergs. Dimmig guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar jästigt med en frukig ton. Jästig smak... Inte min grej.

Smakprov från MrHult, danke! Klar ljusgul vätska med luftigt vitt skum. Doftar pepprigt, gräs och jäst. Sträv, söt och kryddig i munnen. Jovars... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold Pour, scant head. Nose is hard fruit and Belgian yeast. Bitter. Middle is light kilned malt, and pears. Finish is dry, slightly lingering. Pretty good.
