Notes / Commercial Description:
Brainless Belgian-Style Golden Ale is has a rich and complex malt flavor balanced with a little bit of spicy noble hops and strong influences of fermentation esters from the Belgian yeast used. Various Belgian like Rock Candies, hops and grains are employed to express variations within the style. Deceivingly drinkable, some liken theses ales to Devil sneaking up on you, so consume responsibly.

Bottle shared by Jayhawk 73. Thanks Jeff. The beer is mildly hazy and dark straw yellow with a half inch of white head. Lasting retention with lacing clinging to the glass. The aroma brings Belgian yeast, fruity esters, oranges, citrus. A bit sweet with some forward alcohol notes. Oranges soaked in booze with Belgian yeast. Medium bodied and relatively smooth. Decent, though best in small quantities. A good bottle for sharing.
