750 ML bottle poured into a tulip. Originally reviewed 11/30/12

A - Golden colored and hazy. Big fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing behind.

S - Flowery, earthy, and herbal hops is the strongest aroma. There's also some citrus and spice, maybe a hint of clove.

T - Slight citrusy flavor in the front that gives way to a light malt character and spicyness. A bit of bitterness in the finish.

M - High carbonation and medium to light body. Surprisingly easy drinking given the ABV.

O - Very enjoyable easy drinking golden ale.

poured a cloudy orange yellow with two fingers of head into a snifter. has a somewhat sour pineapple bready nose with that belgian funk to it

It tastes like it smells with a strong alcohol presence and big carbonation. Not a big fan and would not seek out again.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Very nice golden orange, honey colored body with a froathy inch head. White in a color. Bit of lacing on the glass.

S: Great smells from this, spicy belgian yeast, sweet citrus fruits, refreshing floral hop aroma.

T: This strong golden ale has some saison characteristics. A bit of funk and lemon, very nice. Bready malts provide sweetness, but are balanced well with hops, and dryness.

M: Well carbonated, medium fullness. Crisp and refreshing, even for the ABV. Awesome drinkability, I taste the booze but it's well covered by the dryness and bitterness.

O: I'd love to drink it on tap, and I think I'd pay $12 for another bottle. Successful belgian style from The Bruery.

Poured from tap into tulip at papago in Scottsdale. Pours a nice golden straw with a finger of white foamy head. The aroma is amazing...belgian yeast and hay but big pineapple. Its awesome.
Taste is supsr crisp belgian yeasty malts...great mild hop but big pineapple flavor with a bit of pear. Wow...this is great. Im not sure ive ever had such a big pineapple in a brew like this and its awesome. Super easy to drink. It just rolls down the tongue.
Great great brew.
