Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 2, 2013
It pours a beautiful hazy golden leaving the same color body. A half centimeter of white foamy head appears and lasts for a minute before dieing in a concave sort of way. Some streams of carbonation are seen rising. The smell is centered around spices and sweet fruit coming through in a light way. Belgian yeast is there but more subdued. The taste is spicy and sweet sometimes at the same time and sometimes not, amazing (at least to me). The palate is about a medium with the normal amount of carbonation felt on the tongue. A slight creaminess comes through as well. The aftertaste is sweet and the finish is sticky. Overall, this is an awesome beer for its style and awesome to me.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2017 Egy igazi belga bolondról ale. Gyógynövényes illat és íz, közepesen testes sör

KraftowyJakup (330) - POLAND - JUL 21, 2017
Barwa slomkowa, klarowne, trwala piana. W zapachu chleb, drozdze, troche estrów, glównie morela, delikatna guma balonowa, moze lekki banan, troche fenolowych przypraw, pieprz. W smaku przyjemny balans, jest troche slodu, ale z drugiej strony fenole, lekki alkohol i chmiel, mocno musujace, goryczka srednia, chmielowo-alkoholowa.

Consumed while on vacation in Edmonton, Alberta. 12-ounce bottle pours clear straw color with two-inch-thick white whipped-cream head and lacing. Aroma: lemon, honey, some barnyard. Flavor: the above, plus white pepper and yeast. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, clean. I’ve had this many times; always world-class.

Złociste, niezmętnione. Piana obfita, trwała, biała z wyraźnym lacingiem. W aromacie banan, brzoskwinia albo coś w tym stylu, lekko fenole. W smaku odrobinę gorzkawe, lekkie cytrusy, kwas i fenole. Bardzo przyjemne

bottle at home. when I pour this beer it generated a huge head. the beer also has the look of a lager whuch I dont like although it’s a golden ale. You don’t notice the strength which is good. not sure this is for me it’s not bitter enough to please me and as I said it’s almost like lager
