Pours into a stemmed tulip glass a light to medium golden with a slight orange tinge,a blooming sticky white head atop.Slight funk and Belgian yeast stand out most in the nose with a bit of chalkiness and lemon peel.Same as the aromas on the palate yeasty with a chalk-like element,it's dry as all get out with a pretty bitter finish.It's drinkable as all get out with the dryness but it's not overly complex.

Foggy golden with a big head, poured from a 750ml bottle - which had a loud cork pop. Tangy citrus smell, just a little funky. Taste is sweet - a little tropical fruit but rather neutral so hard to pick an actual corresponding fruit, some hops bitterness in aftertaste. Mouthfeel is juicy with a little carbonation bite. Overall, a somewhat interesting brew that does not have any big faults but also doesn't have any big strong points. So you might want to try it for your own opinion, or perhaps it will become more interesting with age or another brewing batch.

I'm not sure where the "Trappist style" comes from because there is absolutely nothing Trappist about this beer. It's bitter and dry. Not in the nice west coast IPA way, but in the someone messed up. if you're looking for an extremely IPA-like light golden ale, this is for you. The name is misleading. Transmitter is just a disappointment from what I've had.

750ml corked and caged bottle into a Founders snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Described as a "Trappist style golden ale".

Pours a frothy 2 finger fluffy white head with poor retention. Beer is a clear, deep goldenrod. Lacing is spotty and sparse with little cling. Average.

Nose is hints of citrus, pineapple, peppercorn, yeast and coriander. Pretty typical and decently aromatic.

Opens citrus, coriander and yeast. Floral and peppercorn notes in the middle mixed with a acrid, yeasty, resiny bitterness at the end. Aftertaste of earwax and starfruit. Ok until the end.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down quenching and dry. Puckering dry finish with a sticky, resiny aftertaste. The dryness is a first I've experienced in this style. It works nicely!

Again, a decent beer but for the price point, totally not worth it. The feel is a nice take on the style though.
