Pours a cloudy, golden color. The aroma is mild and disappointing, maybe a hint of sweet malt doughyness, along with a trace of spice, but it took a lot of work to reach that determination. This is a flavorful beer compared to the aroma, however its still fall short of most classic Belgian ales. Somewhat yeasty and sweet, with gentle carbonation, and spice, accented in the finish by a touch of hops in the finish. Overall a good quality beer.
On tap at Great Divide, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out candied sugar, Belgian yeast and light fruity esters. Flavour is on the sweeter and estery side, with candied sugar, Belgian yeast, and estery notes. Not authentic, but it’s still pretty nice.

11/24/2009 12:48:46 PM Bottle from Bierkoning. Nice golden body. Sweet, fruity and hoppy nose. Strong taste of honey. Some spicyness too. Taste of malts and toffee, with more honey in the end. Pretty good. Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle from Payless Liquor, where you definitely do not pay less for anything. Pours a golden body with almost no head. Nose of sour citrus, vanilla, and bread. Flavors include banana and cheese plus the others in the aroma. I may have to let this settle a bit because I’m getting an astringent alcohol bite all around the body. Light body and medium/full carbonation. As far as Belgians go, this is no where near the best I’ve tried, but it’s drinkable.

33 cl bottle @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels
Aroma has apricot, moldy cellar tones and cardboard. Flavour has apricot, spicy tones, some moldy cellar and sweetish toffee. Quite well preserved, I like the spices here. PartyFowle (954) - - APR 8, 2015
Perfectly clear dandelion yellow. No bubbles. Large bubbles of head explode and leave what looks like a foamy white mountain range. The head recedes to a layer of film that leaves slight lacing. The aroma has bright floral hops, slightly metallic, with hints of apples and pear. The flavor tarts sweet with notes of citrus and grass dominating. There’s also some spicy yeast in there, and a high hoppy bitterness throughout, but more so at the finish. Medium-light mouthfeel, pleasant carbonation level -- it’s not too intense, just lets you know it’s there. Enjoyable? Sure. Memorable? Not so much. Slipstream (2651) - USA - JAN 9, 2015
Here is an oddly named Belgian golden ale. Lightly lemony with a good amount of wheat malt/hefeweizen flavor. Pale pour with lacing, and a mild sour-sweet aroma. Another good GD release. joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a quick white head, little lacing, a little retention on the sides. Aroma of wheat, yeast and anise. Taste is slightly sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, soft small bubble carbonation, slick mouth feel. Finishes dry with notes of wheat, yeast, sour apple and spice. It’s ok. beastmaster (381) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pour at great divide. Light orange pour with a pretty head. Aroma of apple cider, champaign. Great golden ale. Light crisp, reminds me why its one of my favorite styles.
