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.

Growler from TheBeerSommelier, thanks M. Opened with a good burst of carbonation rushing out so that was a good sign. The pour was perfect and you never would have known that this was from a growler that was well over a month old and had been shipped several hundred miles. A deep solid red/orange body sits underneath a large full foamy white head. Aroma is grainy and bready with notes of Belgian yeast, some rotting fruit and pepper. Fuller bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish with some lingering flavors. Flavor is dry bread, hint of lemons, light pepper, Belgian yeast. Good stuff and then considering the way this one was served it bumps it up a notch or two.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
A couple pours of this from a 4 oz. taster glass. 4.5 A: Clear medium orange color. One finger of creamy beige head with average retention and tons of lacing. 4.5 S: Lots of pepper and clove spiciness. Peach fruitiness and perhaps a touch of apple. Moderate barnyard funk. Really nice. 4.5 T: Again, lots of clove and pepper with peach and apple fruitiness. Mild barnyard funk. Touches of hay. 4.0 M: Ligher medium body. Good active carbonation. Could be creamier though. 4.5 D: Really good beer. That is all. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-18-2011 00:34:40

BlackWarrior (220) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Pours hazy golden amber color w/ a solid white head. Plenty of yeast in the nose. Also aromas of citrus, bread and grain. Crisp carbonation w/ smooth medium body. A little syrupy, but not cloying. Familiar belgian yeast flavor dominates along with a fruity sweetness, w/ notes of pepper and some hops. Slight bitterness in the finish. Excellent beer and I’m looking forward to this brewery once they get up and running.

BeerHawk (1811) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Growler. Poured copper with a frothy off-white head that left light lace. Sweet aroma of fruit, spice and light yeast. The flavor found fruit, light floral, spice, and a malt backbone. Medium body and smooth.

AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Mild aroma and a huge head. Good mix of flavors that come out much smoother than some of the other golden Belgians.

2.7
Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle pours gold with white head. The aroma has bold sharp pear to cherry estery notes and booze. The taste is pretty sweet and fruity with estery notes like apples and pears to go along with sharp yeasty notes and spicy to floral hops.

3.5
Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours a Medium amber with a decent frothy whitish head. Smells of doughy yeast, light floral hops and some spice. The taste is of light floral hops, some banana, spice with bready aspect. Overall, a niice brew for this young GA brewery.

3.8
SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Pours mostly clear deep gold with a fleeting white head that laces nicely. Aroma is complex, some candy, spice, fruit, no hops. The flavor is sweet, but not overly so, with a touch of dryness coming in at the end. Pretty decent.
