In Tillamook Bay, Oregon’s rich dairylands run parallel to the scenic sandy beaches and rocky windswept cliffs carved by the Pacific Ocean. We’ve brewed and bottle conditioned this Belgian-Style golden ale to reflect the Oregon Coast’s inspiring landscape & unique heritage.

Golden Pelican features an herbal, fruity and hoppy aroma, bright gold color, and a clean dry finish. Brewed as the first entry to our quarterly Belgian-Style release, Golden Pelican uses malted rye to emphasize the balanced spicy character inherent in the "Farmhouse" yeast. Generously dry-hopped with Aramis hops, the fresh herbal nose marries with the yeast-driven fruity/spicy aromas. A lean-bodied, toasty malt character supports copious amounts of hop flavor. Golden Pelican finishes with a clean, snappy balance of malt flavor, hop bitterness, and slightly tart, spicy yeast character.

Bottle (750 ml) shared at RB Québec gathering. Thanks to dresden for that bottle. Hazy golden with a small white head, little retention, leaving sparse lacing. Aroma is quite fruity and herbal with honeyed malts, bread and mild rotten notes. Taste is of honeyed malts, bread, herbal notes, fruits (borderline rotten) and peppery notes. Medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Fruity finish. A good Belgian style strong ale with a nice honeyed malt backbone and some fun bread features but with a bit too much fruity/spicy presence for my liking.

Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy blond with low white head. Aroma is of rotten clementines. Taste is of clementines, belgian yeast. Palate: Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation. Overall: Ok I guess.

Orangey pour lots of foam. Aroma peppery grassy french hops some banana Belgian yeast ozone. Tastes spicy rough cut grain, mustardy, earthy ginger. dry husky finish. very fresh Belgian with the ibu of a pale.

AdamChandler (5252) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 21, 2016
This is a slightly hazy yellow. No head on the pour and tiny lacing. It has a bright grapefruit and kiwi aroma. Good carbonation. Mouth swish reveals some peach, Apple and pine. Bitter with a great yeast profile. Finish is bitter and citrus

MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Doughy bread is laden with herbs and a drop of honey in this fluffy Belgian-style Strong Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the cloudy blond.
-Bready connotations are generous.
-Herbal hop bitterness adequately seals every sip.
-Mouthfeel and flavor display are both quite authentic.
