Exceptional golden color and head. On the sweet side, but smooth and flavorful. Goes great with French cheese. Neat bottle;on the expensive side.

Serving type: bottle

4/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 1 pint 9.4 oz ceramic flip-top jar. Belgian Golden Ale stated on the label, no freshness date.

Appearance: Hazy pale golden with a creamy white lace, good head retention.

Smell: Good quantity of pale malt sweetness in the nose with hints of fresh mowed hay and mild phenolic / medicinal aromas.

Taste: Fairly snappish carbonation leaves a smooth malty mouth feel. Loads of big pale malt flavours; sweet, smooth and alcoholic upfront. A bit warming. Sugariness turns honey-like with a semi-slick butter flavour. Hop character brings a lime rind / peppery bitterness that comes as quickly as it goes though the lime rind flavour fades slowly. Mild phenols make it known that this beer is Belgian. Alcohol becomes more noticeable towards the end of the glass. Finishes dry.

Notes: Deceivingly alcoholic due to the sweetness, outstanding malt profile makes for high drinkability. A damn fine, rare, Belgian Golden Ale. Very enjoyable, interesting and complex.

Serving type: bottle
