COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The traditional bière de garde was a hearty solid beer that was fit for storing to use as compensation to farmhands instead of gold. After a long day in the Leelanau sun we would rather get paid in this beer than gold. Good Harbor Golden celebrates its magnificent appeal as a stoic, solid, quiet-type ale. Because the beer spends so long in the oak it won’t be ready for the public until sometime in May.

An interesting beer, for sure. Brightly colored golden-hue. Frothy white head with a very active rising of bubbles. Quite musty and heavily cellared. Not too sweet at all. Tart and has a Belgian/pilsner qualities to it that make it quite unique.

PhillyCraft (7235) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle with PatrickFannon 5-6 years ago. Pours hazy yellow golden with a smaller sized head and average lacing. Aroma of flowers, apples, chamomile, lemon skin, pears, grapes and some toasty malts. Medium bodied with a dry close. Awesome beer.

My first review can only be for the beer that started it all for me eight years ago at Spuyten, and which I always go back to (if/when I can find it, which is extremely rare in DK). This beer is wild ale perfected, vinous, clean, with a fruity sourness. Could drink this for ages. Even after meeting Cantillon I’ve never stopped yearning for this one.

bigtaster (979) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2015
From bottle into a snifter. Nice very cloudy gold color with medium sized white head with fine bubbles. Nose has nice sour notes, lemon, barnyard, some biscuit malts, maybe some corn, . High carbonation, medium sweetness, moderate sour, hints of funk, slightly dry finish with some more sour, very well balanced. This is a very well crafted beer, very complex, smooth, drinkable, blew me away.
