3.28/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a slightly hazed gold/pear color with much effervescence with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Nice lacing & below average head retention

S: Bready, yeasty,

T: Follows the nose, much phenols, & little bit of hay up front. Some coriander & faint lemon notes as this warms, plus yeasty notes in spades, plus a little green bananas. Finishes yeasty, dry with pears & hay

MF: Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Carbonation picks up once warm

This is drinkable, but not memorable, easily the worst of the first 3 beers these guys are canning

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of fruits, yeast. Taste is apples, malts, hints of vinegar, light spices. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not the flavor profile I usually associate with this style, but a decent beer.

Poured into snifter.

Appearance: Dull gold. Ring of head.

Nose: Creamy yeastness, faint fruit.

Taste: It all comes out, the wheat, the subtle fruit notes are a nice touch. Banana notes like weizen beer.

Mouth: Generally smooth, light to medium.

Few Oklahoma breweries delve deep into Belgian styles. Golden One is often found on tap in the sooner State from spring to summer. A worthwhile ale.

A: Almost a gusher as I open the can. A massive white head rises on a tiny pour. Once that settles, a cloudy golden color with some floating yeast suspended.
S: Phenolic spice, fruity esters and sweet candied sugar. That is pretty much it.
T: Again, that phenolic spice hits hard. Fruity esters and really sweet. The yeast is the entire show. Not that that is a problem, just one sided and nothing takes away from the nearly plastic like character and spice.
M/D: A light body, but super carbonated. Needs to be dry, and just a bit heftier. Not hard to drink. Enjoyable enough, but plenty of better examples.

Phenolic spice and sweetness is the main show. Not that this is bad, just middle of the pack and not something I would really seek out. Enjoyable for what it is, but ho hum.
