COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of a Belgian Strong Golden Ale. A healthy amount of wheat gives this beer a very smooth mouthfeel that is accompanied by a fruity yeast character. Dark Belgian Candy is added to the boil which contributes to this beer’s light body and complex flavor. European hops team up with Juniper berries added late in the boil to offer a soft, subtle spiciness.

355ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and malts with some grassy and spicy notes. Taste is a light peppery touch with a grassy, spicy hop bitterness and a light fruity and malty sweetness finishing with a hint of yeast. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely balanced and tasty Belgian style ale.

Backlong entry. This beer is close to style with typical flavors. Well rounded and clean. Nothing too outstanding or unusual.

September 2nd, 2014 - Bright and mostly clear, Crazy Mountain’s Old Soul Ale is a chipper looking beer. Served in a tall glass, I catch a photo of the underside of the foam, like the underside of a glacier, keeping some bubbles submerged to satisfying optical effect. The aroma is tangy and acidic, with pear and dandelion identifiable, and an overall sense of floral sips ahead. The flavor, however, is much danker and weedier than the aroma would have otherwise suggested. The sweet elements are intense, like candy coated almonds, but the finish is herbaceous. On the second sip I track the herbal graph, and find it earlier than in the finish, but it’s only in the aftertaste that the sweeter side of the Old Soul peels away to let the herbal component shine. I also catch notes of white grapes and lemons, making this a diverse and fascinating brew.

Bill Becker (1779) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Pours a hazy straw gold with an inch of foam after settling down. Smells fruity with notes of candi sugar, wheat, and pepper. It has some tartness. Peppery, a candi sugar sweetness, fruity like the rind of oranges, a bit tart. Not bad. Light bodied with light carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable beer.

2.9
scoth (690) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Can. Pours deep gold with a thin beige head, moderate retention. Aromas of caramel, hay, banana, pepper, biscuit, a little cooked vegetable note. Medium-light body, velvety, mild carbonation. Lightly sweet, a hint of citrus, light bitter finish. Seems a little off, not enough to ruin the batch, but not as nice as it could be.
