12 oz. can from Trader Joe’s.
Ar: Moderate spicy nose, banana, and some yeasty funk that gives off a slight rust note.
Ap: Pours a hazy copper with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly.
T: Up front sweet, clove note, but there’s that awkward rust flavor here. Almost no alcohol burn.
P: Medium-thick, mild carbonation, moderate stickiness.
My can does not say strong on it, just 8%. Looks a little like an orangish hefe. Mild aroma goes boozy on the tongue once liquid is taken. Coarse, ruff, undisciplined. Leaves an impression. Everything was fine till I tasted it, raw, no civility. Feels like 12%. Even barleywine immature in effect at times. Want to catch a buzz and know that you did it? Probably more like an American strong ale wannah bee. MrWomey (39) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Overall this great Golden is a fantastic creation : but definitely not good for sessions. Found it to be have fairly sweet qualities, with little to no aftertaste, highly alcoholic in character, but not in taste, and aesthetically beautiful with its dark (slightly cloudy) hue. Full-bodied and hardly bitter, the toughest part of this beer is getting it out of the 6-pack retainer; otherwise, it’s a real pleasure but definitely should be enjoyed only in moderation (too many of these can be overpowering in taste and daze). terefere (396) - Durham, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Pours golden, cloudy, average head. Aroma of yeast, dark fruits, coriander, malts. Taste: sweet and sour fruits (wild cherry?), citrus, belgian yeast, spices, sweet malts. MarineOBeer (45) - - JUN 6, 2015
Tastes like vinegar. Super bad. Terrible beer. Don't drink.

Beer pours a golden wheat color, clear with minimal head. Doesn't look like anything special. Aroma is subtle, with some berries and caramel in the smell. Taste is solid with some sweet strawberry and light malty noted coupled with a boozy undertones. Overall a decent beer but lacking some complexity.

Draft at Brixx Chapel Hill pours golden with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Slight champagne note on the nose. Not much on the tongue. Doesn’t have any alcohol burn. Some hop bitterness on the finish to clean things up. Eh! DialSquare (5119) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2012
12oz can from Gail’s Hops and Grapes in Hickory. Yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet honey belgian yeast. Taste is butter, pepper, candy sugar, banana. Ok. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
12oz can, thanks to Jay. More hazy golden color, good thin persisting white head. Nice fruity hoppy aroma, some belgian-esque yeast flavor. Attractive maltiness. Estery, nice spice taste, some sweet zest. Some orange. Smooth, creamy, lighter carbonation. Bigger body, but more dry texture. Enjoyable strong golden ale Itzjerm (3074) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Sweet aroma sugary but nice aroma. Sweet good flavor. Almost syrupy. Nice spicy flavor
