JDBaker11058 (2061) - Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2011
Appearance: cloudy, orangey golden; one-finger white head shrinking quickly; generous lacing. Aroma: floral, peppery, fruity and herbal, with notes of biscuit and pie crust. Taste: light, crackery malts, a slight honeyed sweetness, with notes of clove, ginger, pepper, and white grapes. Finish: smooth, crisp, a little dry and tangy, with pleasant lingering hint of floral sweetness and herb garden. Notes: Top notch Belgian-style golden ale. Become a little more herbal/spicy as it warms. Dangerously easy drinking, and the palate is excellent. Hides the alcohol, although there is a little pleasant warming in the belly before you know it.

Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
Reviewed from notes. Pours a really nice golden color with a fluffy white head. Good retention and some nice lacing, but not good enough to justify a 4.5 in a style where this is quite common; needs to go above and beyond. Nose is quite nice with some floral and grass plus some light pepper and Belgian yeast. Mild citrus and pear. The taste is nice with the yeast really coming through next to some floral and peppery notes. Great feel with all the components combining quite well. One of the best American examples of the style that Ive had. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-12-2010

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - APR 2, 2011
Bright straw body with moderate carbonation and a tall, white bubbly head. Nose is fruity with some barnyard characteristics. Sweet candied malt backbone. Bananas, yeast, esters . . . the usual suspects. A little thin and oily. Wheat and orange citrus. Nothing offensive but not stellar in any way.

Dense foamy white head. Leaves lacy head behind in the glass after each sip. Citrus and grassy flavors with some hoppiness. Definite Belgian yeast aroma and flavor, with a slight bit of herby bitterness.Another good beer from Goose Island.
