This is a 9.3% Belgian Style Golden Ale from Michigan that’s a nice looking opaque orange-amber with a thick light beige head of foam. The aroma is bready, honey, apricot and peaches - tasty. Full bodied with a raspy mouthfeel. The taste is thick malty sweet with toffee, bread pudding, caramel, apricot. It reminds me a bit of a barleywine or old ale. Really rich and a good beer for a cool fall evening.

Aroma is bread, roasted sugars, toffee, a touch of caramel and a slight bit of orange. Color is a light to mid amber, just a bit toward the orange end of the spectrum. Head is averaged sized and off white. Taste is the sweetness of candied sugar; bitterness is quite mild. Body is light to medium; texture a bit sticky; carbonation average and the finish medium starting with the orange bitterness and ending with the candy sugar. Overall not bad; I like the mix of orange bitterness and sweet breads malt, though the sweetness is a bit too much for my taste. Not tremendously complex but somewhat interesting.

A nice balance of sour, Belgian, and fruits. A well-made beer straight through. Not extreme enough for a best-ever rating but a guarantee. On tap in Douglas, MI. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holtguy (178) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Coppery-orange, cloudy pour with thin white head. Aroma is fruity, cloves, and bologna. Flavor is smooth, with Belgian sugar and yeast. Fruity, with a somewhat bubbly mouthfeel. This is very smooth, indeed. I was sucking it down like Coca-Cola. Pretty impressive for a 9.3 abv brew. This is prob my fave from this brewer.

From bottle. Caramel, toffee, fruity with alcohol. Rich and musky. Deep amber-orange clear with thin lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet with alcohol and caramel. Belgian Dubbel quality, smooth sweet finish with dark fruits, moderate bitter finish with lingering sweet after and bitter undertones.
