750 ml ceramic bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/10/2017. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big peach, apricot, lemon, pear, apple, honey, candi sugar, bread, light clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big peach, apricot, lemon, pear, apple, white grape, honey, bread, candi sugar, light clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of peach, apricot, lemon, pear, apple, white grape, honey, candi sugar, bread, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of fruity/earthy yeast ester and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian golden ale. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

A: Bright yellow-orange colour, slightly hazy nice head
S: Lemon and orange, hints of hops and coriander, smells refreshing
T: apricot and orange, slightest hint of spices and hops, a bit too sweet
M: undercarbonated, medium body, a bit sticky
O; does not deliver on the promise, but not a bad beer, drinks easily, not heavy

Poured from 750ml bottle into Chimay goblet.

A - Straw gold with some slight haze. A white laced foam.

S - Fruit, peach/apricot, lemon zest, sweet malt and candi sugar.

T - Phenols, alcohol, candied fruit, grapefruit-like hop bitterness. Mild sweetness and peachy ester notes.

M - A medium body with a slightly astringent finish.

The smell was fantastic, but the flavors come through in the wrong order. The alcohol and hop astringency really throws the balance.

Appearance- Hazy golden pour, good head with light bubles.

Smell- Smells like a very malty beer. (Not my favorite smell, but it's a good smelling for a golden ale)

Taste- Sweeter tasting beer with a slight carbonation taste. A little bitter tasting towards the end and leaves a dry feeling afterwards.

Mouthfeel- Carbonation feel immediately, followed by a crisp flavor, and finishes dry.

Overall- I love belgian style ales. This one didn't disappoint!! I didn't like how the ending was as dry as it was but still very good. Would have again.

Big ol' ceramic bottle with swing top, labeled as "Monsters" and a perfect Halloween brew, I figure. It is clear pale gold in color with a frothy white head and very active carbonation. Looks like champagne. Smell is sugar, caramel, oranges, and grass. The taste is toffee and caramel malt, with a slight spicy finish. Very balanced and very good :) It is very carbonated with a nice slickness that holds it in check. Very very nice, malty and sweet without being cloying. This gives Duvel a serious run for its money.

3.53/5  rDev -9.9%

Slightly hazy lemon blonde with pitted lacey white head. Tangy yeast on the nose - a bit of lemon, bit of clove, bit of wax.
Dusty lemon, Saltines, some wax, a bit of white peach, and an herbal cough drop ending.
Lemon rind sorbet finish and more wax lingers. Dry, crisp, a bit of heat.

Brewed by Duvel/Moortgat, I believe.

Too lean, too hot and a strange compote thing going on. Too estery? Average blonde.

Bottling date as 18/01/15 G 12:44

A= Beer pours a nice hazy golden color with a finger of nice white head on it that holds solid lacing and retenion with some spotty lacing on the side of the glass.

S= The aroma is a solid malty aroma without much hop character and a bit of a sweet malt. Somewhat quite in the nose with maybe a bit of a yeast spice.

T= The taste is as I thought a nice light Belgian yeast taste with a little bit of bubblegum without being out of hand as well as some slight grain flavor and little to no hop profile. Solid and refreshing sort of reminds me of Duvel only a little less bright.

M= Solid carbonation

O= This is a solid beer in a sweet bottle. Bought for the bottle and I will likely buy it again for the bottle and the beer inside is tasty. A fine example of a Belgian Golden Ale. Not as good as Duvel but worth checking out.
