22 oz bottle from drfabulous. Thanks Jeff! Pours hazy golden with a bright white head. Smells bready and yeasty and a touch of fruit, more like light or white/green fruits than dark fruits. Taste is of bread and fruit, the same white fruits as the nose; kinda like white grapes and maybe pears or green apples. The body is more on the lighter side with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Goose Island Demolition Ale finishes with some subtle fruit sweetness.

22oz bomber poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. Bottled on 5/7/2010. Pours a dark gold with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of fruity yeast. Citrus and tropical fruits with a good bit of baking spices. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Tropical and citrus fruits with a decent dose of hop bitterness along with the doughy yeast. Great combination. Medium bodied with a thin yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink it again.

Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt, yeast, floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a soft brew.

Glad I picked it up to add the empty bottle to my collection. It’s worth having but not necessarily repeat purchases

superspak (5584) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2012
22 ounce bottle into tulip, bottled 5/7/2010. Pours hazy golden straw color with a small 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass, witha fair amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big lemon, biscuit, apricot, apple, pear, grape, coriander, grass, floral, grain, light yeast spices, and a bit of alcohol. Some pretty nice and balanced aromas. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, grape, biscuit, pepper, grass, honey, grain, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, biscuit, honey, and yeast spices on the finish for a bit. Flavors are more on the sweet side than the spicy side; but is not cloying at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Very smooth to drink, but is good for sipping on. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a very nice and enjoyable Belgian pale. Nice flavor balance and complexity.
