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.

Lans (19) - , Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle, 330 mL Poured a dark, tarnished gold in color, with a thin head. Lots of yeast sediment. Nose has yellow apples and caramel. Extremely smooth texture, with a very good mouth feel. Overall, a decent beer.

alobar (3885) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Pours a straw yellow head with a fizzy white head. Decent carbonation. Aroma of spice, fruit, and yeast. Too much carbonation on the palate, but flavor of spice, yeast, and some fruit. Lots of floaties. Happy Halloween.

bottle. poured a very clear yellow with white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of spice and yeast. Flavor is tangy and kind of yeasty. Not great but it’s not terrible for the style. Very estery!

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2008
750 ml bottle gift from my girlfriend. Hazy golden pour with a fluffy head that drops to an intermittent film. Aroma is spicey, fruity, with a bit of hay and sourness. Flavor is sweet and fruity, with some nice spice. A little must and funk in the finish. Pretty good.

3.4
bhensonb (15624) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Bottle from Sun Devil in Mesa, AZ. Hazy golden body with a huge off-white head. Mild aromas of kandi, pale malt and a mild spicy fruit. Medium body with smooth carbonation. It starts sweet but something like citrus zest cuts that. It’s not citrus though. It’s very smooth. Not so strongly flavored as some. Deceptive as to alcohol. A little light stone fruit in the finish.

3.1
BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Loose, web-like white head sits atop a lemon colored body. Aroma is belgian yeast, biscuit, and honey. Flavor has a citrusy tang to it but is grounded by malt and spice. Not a bad beer but again, not earth-shattering.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2008
Golden beer with a creamy white head. Slightly malty aroma but overall neutral. Spicy taste, some alcohol. Malty and alcoholic finish. Not very special.

2.4
cheap (6016) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2008
OK, so what about the name of this stuff? $7 for a small draft at McGoos in Pgh. Smells like many other belgies. Good clean olfactory, quite interesting. Looks like any other pale yellow beer, clear and pale. Barely any carbonation. Not overly alky in flavor, is refined and you’d never know it was near 9%. Quite smooth for that alky content, I think I feel a buzz coming on. Is a little less refined than a 6% belgie but you gotta expect that. Finish is a little less civilized than I like and more than I expected. Not bad, however, does not live up to the standards of a true belgie like East End Session #9 - Grisette and is not nearly as good as Leute Bokbier for a strong belgie.

3.3
kassner (1686) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2008
On tap at nagoo’s. belgian Golden Clear and light, but well balanced taste. Licorice, pears and alcohol, carbonation just a tad high, and dome hops. Nice for the type
