first extra from my first trade, thanks ncmussell.

Pours a light amber color with an extremely fizzy, soda like, head that recedes quickly. The aroma starts out with a strong lemony smell, followed by some belgian yeast spiciness. In the background there is a fair amount of biscuity/old bread smell. The taste is more of the same but the thin body sort of washes out the taste for me. Overall it was an interesting beer and had some interesting belgian smells going on in the nose but the body just didn't properly support the beer. (534 characters)

Poured from a corked 750ml bottle. A nice pop when the cork is released with some smoke coming out of the bottle. The head is fluffy and white but makes its exit rather quickly leaving a peaceful golden color behind. The aroma has the presence of candied sugar, plum, apricots and pears with a mirroring flavor profile. The hops are crossed up in the sweetness but are noticable on the spicy side. The sugar hangs on the palette with the heat from the alcohol then fades to the back and finishes on the dry side. The fruity sweetness and subtle hop bitterness blend well for a good beer. (587 characters)

Like Xmas in my mouth. At first sip, Golden Chaos introduces itself with the classic Belgian smoothness/sweetness and seamlessly transitions to a mellow sour tartness - your finishing note. As a lover of sour lambics, it's my favorite characteristic of this beer.

Once poured, Golden Chaos exhibits lovely yellow tones, strong carbonation and long-lasting lacing on the side of the glass. I've been drinking this one quite a bit over the summer.

BTW, this beer should come with a pair of pliers. The cork is oversized and difficult to pry off by hand. (553 characters)
