Bottled on Jan. 2, 2013. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy, but transparent golden on the lighter side. Small white head which fades pretty quickly and leaves decent lacing. Lots of apple and pear in the nose. Slightly malty with yeasty bread notes. The flavors are clean, but slightly syrupy. There's an earthy bitterness to this one, but still remains sweet. I wish the carbonation was more active, but it's still does it thing making this is an easy drinker. Medium-bodied. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

This is your typical American attempt at the style. It doesn't come close to the examples from overseas, but it's still an alright beer for what it is.

I tend to favor Belgium style beers so I love this one! I love the golden color and the slightly sweet, yet full-flavor that this beer offers. I found it very easy drinking, but you do have to be careful of the 8.3%, it will sneak up on you! I have tried a few other beers by Great Divide, so far they have not let me down.
