I'm impressed with how dry this is for a Belgian golden ale. The balance between the belgian fruit and clove aromas and then the dryness and bitter flavors is an interesting and unusual contradiction. This beer finishes almost like a German pilsner (although with more body and not such a clean feel), but with additional spice and fruit and more body. I like it.
The nuances here are subtle but very intriguing. If you're used to a slightly richer, rounder or sweeter Belgian golden ale, this will prove to be substantially different. Really quite good.
This particular bottle didn't have much head or any lasting lacing, which is why I dropped the appearance score slightly.
