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.

3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Bottle. Clear gold color, soda-like bubbles in a large white head. Nose has some spicy yeast and some fishy vinegar aromas. Flavor is spritzy alcohol and a biting sharp grainy flavor. Very plain nose, but harsh on the tongue and in the finish, with a heavy fuel alcohol coating. Stinging carbonation as well.

Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle, 1 pint and 9.4 FL oz. Hazy gold color with tall white head. Aroma is light with a bit of spicy hops, lemon, candy sugar and yeast. As the beer warms I smell a bit of malt sweetness. First sip is an explosion of carbonation. The taste starts off tart along with hints of candy sugar. Midway the sugar part gets stronger and some pepper. Later a hint of the alcohol surfaces.

Draught - White Horse - Parsons Green London SW6. A golden coloured beer with bananas and spices on the aroma. The taste has coriander, lemon, wheat, perfume and roses. Having said all that though it’s a bit thin. OK though.
