Pours a nice golden yellow golden color with 1 finger head, nose is not intense but has that Belgian character with some clove, banana peel, mouthfeel is surprisingly light to medium bodied for the high abv, no heat or burn on this, could be dangerous for sure, a nice American take on a Belgian style, quite nice Chalumeaux (1911) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Poured from bottle dated 5/9/16 hazy golden with a nice white head. Aromas of yeast grain honey bananna and spices. Taste is true to style slightly sweet notes of fruit honey and a nice lingering spice. jbruner (5578) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 24, 2016

Hazy gold with fast fading white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, lemon, cloves. Quite dry in the palate with yeast, cloves, esters, bready malts. Some bitterness out the back. Did I say dry? Still, this is a nice, potent, less sweet Belgian Golden.

Pours slightly hazed gold into a tulip. White head with medium retenion recedes to hug rim. Honey aromas. Crisp with biscuit and honey upfront turning to clove in the lasting finish. Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2016

330ml bottle - Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very pale, light yellow body with glunky-looking, suspended particulate matter. Smallish, whitish head.
Smell: A lightly sweetish, honey-tinged scent of golden barley housing minute notes smelling of citrus, chewing gum, pear nectar, white wine, a hint of grain, florals and peppery clove.
Taste: Honeyish, rock candied pale malts, moderately bready with a lightly grainy backing. As with the nose, spicy phenolics and fruity notes abound, still with apple, pear and banana. White pepper, powdered clove with some well warming alcohol. Spicy-sweetish, lightly boozy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Lightly creamyish mouthfeel.
Overall: Decent enough, but not outstanding. Though, I will say it’s better than a great many American-born Belgiany brews by a fair margin. dlovell2 (2398) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Pours cloudy golden with white head. Bready malt aroma with Belgian yeast, peppery notes, and light cloves. Bready malt flavor with sweet light fruitiness, peppery finish with Belgian yeast. Creamy mouthfeel. Lukethelab (7) - - AUG 8, 2016 does not count
Overall flavors coming through are subtly complex. Sweet but not overly so. Fruit notes.
One of the best Belgians I have had recently.
