Big bottle, Ann Arbor, MI via Trader Joes. Hazy pale gold, yeast and citrus aroma with spice. More mellow flavour. Semi sweet with a sharp spice citrus. Long citrus finish. A great step up from blue moon but not very complex compared to other Quebec ales. jeffreylee (17) - HHI, South Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Trader Joe’s is famous for it’s 2 buck chuck wine which is arguably over-priced even for those on welfare. So I was skeptical to try one of their brews. This Belgian style golden ale pours like a slightly darker lager with soft off whet foam. The aroma is spice filled with cardamom and ginger and just a tinge of hops. The initial taste is also spice and citrus and slight sting of alcohol amidst mild hops. The full taste remains spice and citrus but the ale flavor comes out, but somewhat mellowed. The aftertaste remains spicy, but with a strong and bitter taste of hops. Overall, this was pretty good, but not likely to jump in my cart again.

Served in a tulip. Hazy golden with a medium white head and decent lacing. Aroma is coriander, banana,Belgian yeast, and spices. Flavor is more banana, lemon, spices, and orange peel. Thin to medium and easy to drink. Nice beer. drdisque (828) - Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2015
From a bomber purchased at (guess where) Trader Joe’s. Rich well developed yeasty and spicy aroma. Full bodied sweet malty flavor with great balance and a buttery grain mouthfeel with only a slight alcohol burn. Outstanding Belgian style ale. Will stock up on more of these.

Purchased at Trader Joe’s in Vegas. Pours a hazy light golden-amber with an off-white head that disappears rather quickly, leaving not much lacing but a thin white cap above the brew. Aromas of Belgian Ale yeast with some nice spices, in the nose and taste. In the flavours, some orange notes which balances some sweetness with the spiciness. A very easy-drinking strong Belgian Ale, even easier than other Unibroue. Glad I could try this, but had to go to Vegas to do this.

an as expected dry yeasty Belgian golden. Pretty decent bang for the buck, though not a favorite style. Lightly fruity with a fizzy body that covers the abv well. asedzie (824) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 20, 2015
750 bottle. Pours hazy hay colored with dense white head. Nose has some citrus peel, wheat, very mild bubblegum esters, trace of coriander - very fresh aroma. Flavor has pale barley malt, a bit of texture from other grains, light spice - a bit of cardamom and coriander - lightly sweet and just a bit of fruitiness on the finish. Quite good - very nice bubbly and soft palate. Nero55 (935) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2015

750ml. Hazy clean orange-yellow, ugly white cream. Spiced yeast aroma. Good body, well done tart carbonation and conditioning. Under-whelming. JohnnyJ (5545) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour, with a white head. Fruity esters (pear, banana), lots of yeast character, bread, spicy, light clove, phenolic, and a bit herbal. Pretty good for what it is.
