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.

jredmond (8096) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle shared with Linh and Scarlett while in Madison, GA. Pours a hazy, golden amber body with thick white head. Tons of spice on the nose - mostly burnt clove. Mouthfeel is thin and crisp with notes of spicy clove and alcohol. Pretty offensive.

Big white bubbles on this highly carbonated gusher. Taste and smell are light spiced apple, and there's residual sweetness into the finish. Thanks, Dad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DarkSong (374) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2016
It pours a hazy pale golden color with a massive fluffy white head. It has the aroma of Belgian yeast, vanilla, bread & clove. It has a bitter flavor, a dank flavor, cooked vegetables, clove, alcohol & earthy flavor. I dont think this beer tastes like it was intended to taste. It was a gusher too and over flowed the bottle when opened. I think it was infected. Very disappointing.

Gusher. Light sweet and clean Belgian profile. Glass-filling head was distracting, but beer was tasty.

tightslice (1204) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 28, 2016
On tap at Mellow Mushroom in Acworth, GA. Aroma is Belgian farmers, fruits and spices. Taste is thick but light and crisp at the same time. Definitely getting the earthy Belgian spiciness and yeasty fruity esters. Impressed with this Georgia take on a Belgian.

True golden pour with thin white head poured into a chalice. The aroma is clean & sweet, and hefeweizen like the closer you bring your nose to the glass. The flavor is a similar spicy, sweet, and ever so slightly hoppy that balances perfectly with the malt to keep this from being too sweet while adding some hop character. Very smooth and well hidden alcohol. Overall impressions are: Sweet, smooth, a little fruity, highly drinkable, & slightly spicy. Even as the beer warms at the end of the glass, it still holds its charm and leaves you wanting more. Exceptionally well made beer. A+ beer from my home state.

On draft. Pours golden with a long, lingering, and foamy white head. Nose is candied sugar, bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is similar but a bit drier with a smooth finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Good stuff.

12oz bottle, purchased from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. Bottle foams a bit slowly upon opening, I poured it before any went over the top. Hazy orange color in the glass, with a bigger off-white head, that leaves thick lace. Seems a touch infected up front, touch of brett I think in the nose. Kind of musty. Bit strongly carbonated, strong soft carbonation. Bigger body, lightly slick, then dry finish. Off-flavor up front is less noticeable after a few sips. Some citrus, dried mild spice, peppery, belgian yeast type flavor. Belgian type malt. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light spicy, just a touch of warmth. Mildly tart. Past the off front-part, it ended up being ok between bites of pizza, but pretty rough on its own, difficult to finish. Chalky dry finish. Seeing the burnt grain and corn that brokensail mentioned. I wonder how long this has been sitting on the shelf for.
