The odor was a little hops and a little Belgian. Amber color with minimal head and no lacing. Belgian yeast comes forward with a slight hops bitterness. Average mouthfeel with average carbonation. Easy to drink with food without wrecking the palate.

Had the wet hopped version, around the 2015 gabf at Wynkoop, on draft .. . Gold, hazy .. Strong foam .. . Pale malts, grass, resin, wet grass .. Mild mouth .. Feels good, medium carb, easy grassy finish .. Yeast plays a smaller part, mild yest sweetness .. . . That referee looks like someone licked a glazed donut

Pours a light gold with white head. A light citrus hop, grain and pine aroma. A yeasty and citrus hop taste with grains and pine. A dry yeast and citrus aftertaste.

On tap at the brewery in Denver, it’s got a great name: Belgorado 6.7%

Clean gold in color topped with a thick white head from which a wheaty saison like aroma rises. The taste is very bitter with a big punch of floral hops. A clean belgian style IPA.

Draft at the brewery, 11/21/15
It has that Belgian yeast aroma, with some clove / spice to go along with some clean grassy and herbal type hops and some fruity hops as well. Flavor is along the same lines. I thought this was pretty drinkable, though not a top example of a Belgian-style IPA.

Served on tap at Wynkoop. Golden color with an off white head. Tropical fruit and hops aroma. Medium body. Lot of fruit flavor with a little hops at end. Easy drinking but needs a little more bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samled at Wynkoop. Darker golden. This was one of the sampler that we shared and it was sub-par. Hops had a nice bitter bite but some odd stuff there, too.

From my dear brother: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is that of a yeasty Belgian ale. Taste is sweet and piny. Very mellow. Not that bitter. Not that exciting. Not a bad beer, but there is not much to write home about.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2014
On tap at brewery October 01, 2014. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, great lacing, pale straw color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: pine, light floral, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish. Taste: light sweetness, into a very heavy pine bitterness finish. I usually do not like heavy pine finishes, but this one is not overwhelming.

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Interesting ... wouldn’t even put the words "IPA" on this one. More in the vein of a light tripel or saison. Golden, hazy, a good blend of beers, but I’d put this squarely in the saison lane, with a hop kick. Not unlike Victory Golden Monkey, but not quite. (#5642, 8/24/2014)

December 22nd, 2012 - Wynkoop’s Belgorado glows on this gray Colorado day, an autumnal mix of golds, browns and oranges, with a cloud white head, reaching ambitiously even as it sits in a diminutive sampler glass. A distinctive aroma of hops hits the nose first, and then settles to reveal the hops in greater resolution: skunky, and a little stinky, though not skunked - more of a gourmet cheese sort of smell. Phenols play with the hops in the flavor, giving off a nice bitterness, chased with cotton candy sweetness, and a general feeling of a Belgian Pale Ale; this is a surprisingly rare style to find around Colorado, but nice to find it where it’s served, including here at Wynkoop.
