25.4 oz. Bottle purchased in 2011 from Chuck’s 85th Street Hop Shop, Ballard, Seattle, Washington for $15.99. "Ale Brewed With Currants--20 IBU’s". Lacy lasting quarter inch bright white head. Clear pretty bright yellow gold color. Light Belgian yeast aroma with hints of Currants and mild hop notes. Tight sediment hazes brew slightly. Clean mild sweet fruit lick black currant Belgian Golden Ale body. Very nice medium texture. Clean mellow sweet smooth Belgian end. Very smooth and tasty. Aged nicely. (4.25 / 5.0).

750 ml bottle from notes and one popped recently. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale, wheat malts, honey, floral notes, berries, just not much to get excited about for a special bottle.

I shared this with my dad for his birthday last year.
We both had this poured into stemless snifters.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow to orange color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light lacing sticking finely to the glass.
The smell had a nice blend of sweet Belgian spices well allocated within an amplified yeasty b readiness with some sugared fruits to round it out.
The taste was mainly sweet and spicey still allowing a nice light fruitiness to come out.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it.
Overall, wow, what a freaking nice beer that went extremely well with a peppercorn spiced NY Strip steak.

Not bad but a little funky. Is maybe slightly to sweet for my liking but still a very interesting and tasty beer.

3.1
Emeister84 (2601) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2014
2011 vintage. Aromas of Heath bar ice cream, nutty, caramel, vanilla, white grapes. Hazy yellow orange with a mostly lasting white head. Simple flavors, light fruit, light malt, honey, subtle floral, fruity finish. Medium bodied, clean.

4.2
HellesBunny666 (244) - Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2014
2011 vintage, on draft. Smells like white tea, and honey. The taste is bread like, sweet, oranges, lemongrass. Spicy and carbonated, pretty good.

bottle. Golden with big fluffy head. Light body with some sweet currant. Completely one dimensional. This really needs something to balance the sweetness, like a little tartness. Disappointing.
