10/2/10. Draft. Sweet estery aroma with similar flavor but with a nice spicy yeast flavor in there too.

13 ounces served in a slender tulip - $6.00 at Muss & Turners in Smyrna, Georgia. Appearance: Served up a hazed, amber-hued body akin to toasted pumpkin and topped with a full inch of thick, white foam. Smell: Lightly sweetish, candy-hinted nose spiced with a small sprinkling of coriander, underscored with fruity notes of pear and fig, and with a hint of clean, quality alcohol. Taste: A pleasant toasted bread character from the malted Belgian barley with poppingly sweet accents of brown sugar and candi sugar. The fruitiness carries over from the aroma. Transient touch of herbaceousness. Slight hop bitterness. Still, the beer remains fairly sweet. The Belgian yeast imparts a light, delicate spiciness coupling with some peppery alcohol tones. And still its sweet. Semi-dry, smooth finish, with the beer finally drying out in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, nearing hefty mouthfeel. Drinkability: Ill be honest, when I had heard this was a strong Belgian-style Golden Ale of 8.5% ABV, I assumed it to essentially be a Duvel clone. Not the case at all! A heftier, rounder malt profile for sure, though maybe Id personally prefer a bit less residual sugar. Still, its a very nice opening offering from this fledgling brewery. Best of luck, guys.

On draught @ Cypress Street. Deep golden pour with a big frothy white head. Semi good retention, left tons of lace but faded quickly. Traditional belgian yeast aromas dominate at first, then I got some fruity and floral components, somewhat hoppy. Flavors were somewhat fruity, a bit yeasty, and a decent American hop kick. Light sweetness. Mouthfeel was slick, full. Super smooth finish with a light bitterness, subtle hops rounded it out nicely. One of the best Belgian golds I have tried. The quality of these brews is remarkable.
