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. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle @ White Horse. Pours cloudy golden with a nice white head leaving some lace. Aroma is fruity, caramel, spicy and yeasty. Flavor is fruity, sweet, spicy, caramel, yeasty and grassy. Finishes with a very nice hoppy, yeasty and spicy aftertaste. Cybercat (5965) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Aroma is strong and fruity with a decided woody, hoppy overtone and a firm note of - resin? It pours a pretty clear gold with a very thick, fluffy, fine-bubbled and quite persistent head that leaves a ton of lacing. Malty, fruity flavor has woody, hoppy and resiny notes with hints of apple, banana and butterscotch. Must be butterscotch. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has good fizz and leaves a woody, fruity tingle. Demolish one today! Crit (4038) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
Hazy golden amber, lasting beige head.Malt whisky nose.Chewy sweet malt profile,long medium bitter finish, light alc heat. Softly carbonated bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from bomber into Snifter.
Appearance: Very clear yellow-gold with thin stark white head and some lacing.
Aroma: Sweet banana, cloves, citrus, pepper and an overall mustiness.
Taste: Strong clove and pepper with undertones of banana, citrus and musty yeast. The cloves and pepper linger long after each sip.
Palate: Moderately high carbonation, medium almost syrupy body. I wish it was more light and crisp.
Overall: Pretty nice Belgian Golden Ale. I like it but can’t help but compare it to the lighter, but more complex, Duvel.

Very clear golden colour with a small white head. Very nice spicy aroma with caramel, kiwi, apricot, mandarin, brown sugar and lots of honey. Flavour is its mirror image with a slightly dry finish. Very nice. Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2011

Bottle @ ZZT’11 #2: Thanks to Joes:
Small quick disappearing white head on top of a light cloudy yellow colored beer.
Smell malts, barleys, fruit, abricot, raisin and rose hip.
Taste malts, barleys, corn hint of fruit. Bit like a barley wine.
Nice malty barley, barley wine ish aftertaste.
Low carbo, full body, soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture. superspak (5801) - 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.
