COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our Strong Golden Ale all-grain, giving it a deep and complex taste.

Belgian aromatic malts add hints of dried fruit, while generous Noble and West Coast hops deliver an earthy spiciness. It finishes semi-dry with lingering tropical fruits and spicy notes from Belgian yeast.

Suggested food pairings: Roasted chicken, grilled pork chops, salmon, Portobello mushrooms, Gouda or Gruyere cheese.

Bottle.  Wow the carbonation, mini gusher.  Had to wait forever for huge, frothy white head to diminish.  Aroma of Belgian yeast,  spices, and floral hops.   Taste has tons of spice along with pears.  Nice mouthfeel.  Pretty good.

Bottle from Great Spirits. Pours golden with a massive, massive head. Has those Belgian floral notes on the nose. taste is a bit dry a bit bready. Finishes slightly acidic. Solid example of style.

Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Cloudy orange, with a huge white head. Smells nice - some apples and pears, then some spicy notes - cinnamon, I guess. Flavor seems kind of like a tripel - yeasty, some booze, some hop bite. Not bad.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
12oz bottle from TBS, thanks Matt. Rating #39. Hazy bright orange/yellow color with a real nicely lacing off-white head. Yeasty and peppery aroma, a little sweet as well with a touch of funk. Big belgian flavor, a little sweet with some lemony citrus that makes for an acidic bite in the finish. Pretty tasty overall. (1992)

12 ounce thanks to Debi. No adjunct sugars? This is super sweet. But it fades into a really nice triple with a lot of yeast and flavor. Very well done.

Drjohnrock (841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Twelve ounce bottle obtained at Natifest ’11 in trade with decaturstevo (thanks!). Large tan head that diminished slowly with good lacing, strong sweet malty aroma with plenty of citrus elements, cloudy medium amber hue, initial bittersweet taste (sweetness dominates) followed by sweet sugary finish. Interesting brew.

aracauna (3694) - Georgia, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Beautiful beer. Perfect rocky meringue head. Hazy light amber body. One of the best spicy yeast aromas I’ve smelled in an American beer of this style. Body isn’t too sweet for the hop bitterness, lemon zest fruitiness, and spicy yeast. Maybe the perfect Belgian gold. Shocked this is American made.
