The brewery called this a "Belgian Golden", that's not a style option here, so I listed it as a Strong Pale.

Served in plastic cup at the breweries recent 1st Anniversary party. The beer poured a deep honey gold color with minimal white head and low lacing.

POW! A boozy punch hits your nose first, but, surprisingly, it's not overpoweringly boozy. It was more like when you take a whiff of a nice spirit and you get a strong scent, but it doesn't set you back on your heels. There was a bit of a honey-ish sweetness on the nose as well. Whoa! Watch out taste buds! Again, the smooth booze comes across upfront, with the same honey flavor and some yeasty spice, just much bolder, fuller and more complete. This was a seriously tasty beer.

The body was a little thinner than I would have liked, but still coated the tongue nicely without being sticky. Drinkability was very good, I had 2 of these and would have had more, if not for the other tasty brews available that day.

Overall. a damn fine beer. If you ever see this, jump at the chance to try it.
