This is a nice beer. These belgian SN beers are all quite good and this is no exception. Like a tripel but i can deal with that. Spicy yeast and fruity notes with a grainy maltyness. superspak (5784) - Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/2/2012. Cork shot the ceiling as soon as he cage came off. Pours fairly cloudy golden amber color with a nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with great retention; that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple. pear, grape, herbal, floral, apricot, grass, pepper, and earthy yeast esters. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity esters. Taste of pear, apple, grape, pepper, apricot, herbal, grass, and earthy yeast esters. Lingering notes of light fruits, light pepper, herbal, floral, grass, and earthy yeast esters on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity of fruity and malty flavors; with minimal cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, foamy, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian golden ale. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and yeast esters; and quite smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Good hoppy golden with rich thick yeast flavors, close to a good triple, pretty nicE akoeninger (766) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Pear and green apple provides a fruity resin aroma. Malt kicks in with the taste. Golden, carbination, and fruit from the yeast give it a wine-like character. Crisp, refreshing, complex. Wife says it?s yum-yums. brokensail (16600) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
clear golden pout with a tall white head. Very fruit forward aroma with lots of nice pear, apple, tons of grape, and golden raisin notes. A mild booziness, sweet pale malt and sugar, some banana, clove, and coriander. A hint of white pepper and yeast, too. Intense white grape flavor to this. Good pear, apple, golden raisin, and banana, too. Moderate malt sweetness and spiciness of clove and white pepper. A hint of citrus peel on the finish.

This is a nice Golden ale that is relatively easy-drinking. It has a huge white ale. Good blend of flavors, lemon, coriander, slight banana, and bread. RedSox2004 (1928) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Corked and caged 750 ml bottle with a warning that contents are under pressure. Heed the warning! The cork started popping out on its own as soon as I took the cage off. Pours a crystal clear gold with a gigantic fluffy white head, great retention, outstanding lace, and tons of rising bubbles. Light fruity aromas featuring lemon, pear, apple, black pepper, light malts and Belgian yeast. Pepper flavors accentuate a mostly light malt sweetness, with the aforementioned fruits adding a modest tartness. Light body, exciting effervescence, sticky mouthfeel, and a crisp finish. And extra points for the cause. angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2013
