3.7/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Hazy, pale gold colour with a small and short lasted white head. The head is nice a creamy but retention could be seriously improved.

Mild citrus and spice from the yeast. A little sweet. Stonefruit. Interesting aromas and fairly appropriate to style.

Smooth, soft malt. Mild clove spice. A touch of pear and orange. Creamy.

Medium-light body. High carbonation. Appropriate but a little too spritzy.

A decent Belgian Golden Strong Ale but for me it lacks a bit of depth and complexity. This is the commercial adaptation of the ACT Amateur Brewing Championships Beer of Show and it has fallen a little bit from the lofty heights that the original beer achieved.
