Brainless Belgian-Style Golden Ale is has a rich and complex malt flavor balanced with a little bit of spicy noble hops and strong influences of fermentation esters from the Belgian yeast used. Various Belgian like Rock Candies, hops and grains are employed to express variations within the style. Deceivingly drinkable, some liken theses ales to Devil sneaking up on you, so consume responsibly.

I have been on an IPA kick lately and being in Utah you only get what the MAN will give you. I have found that IPA's are too bitter for me, that is why I am pleasantly surprised to find my new favorite beer, EPIC Brainless Belgian. I, like most of you, search the Utah Isles for decent alcohol content, which this beers falls into. Unlike most of the really bitter IPA'a, this has a rich, flavorful, content that will keep me coming back for more. Not bitter at all. LOVE!
Sorry that I am not as descriptive as some of you beer snobs. You do make me laugh though.

Bottle shared by Jayhawk 73. Thanks Jeff. The beer is mildly hazy and dark straw yellow with a half inch of white head. Lasting retention with lacing clinging to the glass. The aroma brings Belgian yeast, fruity esters, oranges, citrus. A bit sweet with some forward alcohol notes. Oranges soaked in booze with Belgian yeast. Medium bodied and relatively smooth. Decent, though best in small quantities. A good bottle for sharing.
