Our Belgian-Style Golden Ale opens with a fruity nose and rounded sweetness that compose a pale and balanced beer. Hallertau hops lend a hint of spice that balances the aroma and flavor of orchard fruit. Similar to our Belgian Tripel, but with a lighter body and a crisper finish, it is the perfect introduction to the family of Belgian beers renowned for their complexity and delicacy.

Beers from this region reflected the diversity of Belgium itself, a nation that has three official languages (Dutch, French, and German). Bordering Germany and France, Belgian ales incorporate the complex flavors of French wine into the German brewing heritage. In Post World War II Europe, Belgian brewers developed golden strong ales to compete with the rising popularity of lighter Pilsner style beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a nice white head. Color is a hazy golden orange.

S: Smell is belgian malty and quite yeasty. Pleasant.

T: I should mention I have had this beer multiple times this year and the taste has evolved since summer when I first had this. It is a nice bready maltiness, followed by a very subtle hop stabilization. Perhaps a bit too malty.

M: Moderately heavy bodied.

O: Overall I have enjoyed this beer all season as I drink what will likely be the last of this years vintage. I find Schlafly's beers to be inconsistent, but when they hit a good one, they are quite enjoyable. This is not a homerun, but its a solid american-belgian style golden ale offering from a brewery that makes pretty good limited releases...
