Pours an effervescent gold with 1 pinky of pearl white head. Stellar head retention & lacing

S: Banana peels, pears

T: Follows the nose, white pepper as well up front. Pheno;s & white pepper push trough with green banana as this warms, slight bready sweetness as well. Finishes with green bananas, cloves & a whisper of lemon zest

MF: Medium bodied, soft carbonation

Drinks pretty easy. This was a little better on draft

I have yet to have a beer from Ozark that is anything less than excellent. This one looks great with a lovely head and lacing, smells great and its taste is right on style -- typical Belgian yeast and sweetness, but the sweetness doesn't overpower the overall effect. The brewers say they're working at full capacity: a pity, because their beers deserve wider distribution.

Ozark Belgian Style Golden Ale has a thin, white head, a hazy, golden appearance, some ascending bubbles, and moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of fruit (pears), some horse blanket, and a touch of spice. Taste is of fruit, hay, low-level to nonexistent bitterness, stomach acid, and a strange chalk thing. Mouthfeel is watery, with that odd chalky character. Ozark Belgian Style Golden Ale finishes semi-crisp.

Belgians aren't my thing as a rule, but this is an enjoyable beer. The smell is zesty, some sweet fruit and pepper. Taste is pears with a little tart pepperiness. A slight hop character that is overwhelmed by the sweetness. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. I would choose other's first, but it's a good mix-up from the norms.
