3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy gold with fast fading white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, lemon, cloves. Quite dry in the palate with yeast, cloves, esters, bready malts. Some bitterness out the back. Did I say dry? Still, this is a nice, potent, less sweet Belgian Golden.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle - Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very pale, light yellow body with glunky-looking, suspended particulate matter. Smallish, whitish head.
Smell: A lightly sweetish, honey-tinged scent of golden barley housing minute notes smelling of citrus, chewing gum, pear nectar, white wine, a hint of grain, florals and peppery clove.
Taste: Honeyish, rock candied pale malts, moderately bready with a lightly grainy backing. As with the nose, spicy phenolics and fruity notes abound, still with apple, pear and banana. White pepper, powdered clove with some well warming alcohol. Spicy-sweetish, lightly boozy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Lightly creamyish mouthfeel.
Overall: Decent enough, but not outstanding. Though, I will say it’s better than a great many American-born Belgiany brews by a fair margin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to snifter at Wicked Weed Funkatorium. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, bready malts, mild citrus fruit character,, mild plus peppery spice, I would agree that this drinks much lighter than the abv, some stone fruit character, solid enough.
