COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2010
2005 bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy golden yellow color with massive three finger pillowy white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of candy sugar, caramel, toffee, fresh apple, some hints of light spice and yeast. Flavor is about the same with a touch of oxidation--but not bad for a beer that is nearly 5 years old. Medium body with a sweet and malty finish. Nice ale that has aged well.

Had typical Belgian strong ale characteristics but just not right on mark. I was a little disappointed by this baby.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Aroma is full of Belgian yeast, some mild hops, and some spice aromas (minor bits of clove), and a little alcohol (principally light bourbon). The appearance is a golden color, with a decent white head, will developed lacing. The flavor is mildly tart, and slightly oaken taste, with a bit of cognac hints, with a nice caramel body. Super smooth, and a nice finish with a little woody at the end.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a 3 finger snow white head with the consistency of meringue. The nose is malt, grain and grassy hops. The taste is yeast, sweet grain, malt and light citrus hops with a spicy alcohol finish. Medium mouthfeel. Interesting brew. Starts out like a run of the mill foreign pale and gets more complex as I sip, and then the booze kicks in. Not sure where that ABV comes from, but its a decent brew.

Snot19kilo (103) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 Pours clear gold with heavy yeast flakes and small white head.Aroma is slight spice and heavy yeast. Flavor is about the same really cant taste anything but the yeast and its very bitter.Drank a glass of this and poured the rest out. A waist of $7 will never buy or drink this crap again. Not every beer from Belgium is good and this proves it.!
