COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don't let the golden color fool you - this isn't your father's lite beer! Brewed with imported German malts and US-grown hops, this beer is a full-flavored introduction to craft-brewed beer. We add the hops late in the boil, allowing you to enjoy the flavor and aroma of the hops without an aggressive bitterness. Sensory Profile: Aromas of orange, spice, and green grass. Clean malt-dominated flavor, with a subdued bitterness playing in the background of the aromas of this beer. Food Pairing: A great match with fish and chicken, both sautéed and grilled, especially with citrus and herbs preparations. Shellfish steamed in Liquid Gold is a match made in beer heaven.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Courtesy of yobdoog. Thanks, Trevor! Pours a clear, bright golden color; white head with decent retention. Pleasant amounts of Belgian sugar and doughiness and raisins in the aroma; nicely integrated. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; plenty of Belgian sugars and chewy yeastiness and dough; lots of sugar and stickiness. Medium, sugar and dough in the finish; chewy.

In short: A nice and very hoppy grassy blonde Belgian Ale
How: Tap at brewery
The look: Clear blonde body with a small white head
In long: Smooth honeyed bready cereals. Rather aromatic with notes of wild flowers. Fresh wet grass on the nose and in the attack that turns into a dry grassy finish. Discreet fruity notes of grapefruit, critrus, peach and friends. The hopping takes a lot of room in this Belgian Ale and that’s quite alright with me. Totally appropriate beer named after a totally appropriate way to describe a beer.

On tap at Fette Sau on 9/14/07: Pours a transparent pale golden with a well-lacing, wispy white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity pale malt with a hint of orange peel and Belgian yeast. Body starts with nice sweetness and some tart orange and coriander citrus balance toward a bready, well-balanced sweet finish. A very nice, true to style brew.

hellbilly (3248) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2007
from mesa gathering. poured from a growler pale gold with no head. sweet aroma of caramel, malt, and something vegetal...almost like a lager yeastiness. flavor is the same with a pleasant acidity, dried herb or yeasty spice dryness. the finish is clean with some lingering alcohol. medium bodied with very little carbonation.

[Brewtopia 07] Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of coriander, cardamom, citrus fruits, orange peel, wild yeast? and light toast. Taste of more coriander, grains of paradise, lots of the fun Belgian spices, with some citrus, toffee, wheat, and light tartness in the finish.
