750mL bottle from LCBO. Pours clear and golden with a foamy 1-inch head. Aroma is typical Belgian spicy yeast. Taste is quite sweet - sweet malt, slight spice and alcohol. Fine, but nothing too special.

Clear golden pour, huge rocky white head.
Soft yeasty aroma, sweet sugars, pears and apples. Body is a little thin, carb is way over the top. Finish is very light on the bitterness. Mineral and metallic aftertaste.

The beer poured a slightly hazed golden colour with a thin rocky white head and plenty of effervescence. The aroma is yeast, light fruits, honey, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour has honey sweetness, yeastiness, grains, and citrus. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Belgian yeast , tad salty , softer end with golden malts as backing.
Look: golden, hazed look with off white top. Some lace. 4-
Taste/palate: Lighter ,slightly salty , thinner in body with softer backing. Some alcohol dryness with heat. Good but tad too thin. I know its Belgian ale so its not all malts but here some body would do good. late green apple with cellar notes.

Pours clear gold with a tall white head that recedes quiclky and leaves good lacing. Aroma is alcohol, fruit... apple, cherry. Taste is similar, sweet apple with a nice sweet finish, the alcohol is well hidden. This was better than I expected, I’d definitely drink it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, LCBO. Golden yellow, lots of lively bubbles, frothy white head. Aroma is pleasant - sweet, some hops, yeast, light bread notes, with floral accents in there as well. Taste is good - very lively carbonated soft body, pleasant floral hoppiness with a bit of peppery kick, sweet taste, alcohol present - just a solid solid Belgian Golden Ale without hitting any complex or OMG moments. A nice surprise at the LCBO.
