Triangle Belgian Golden Ale

22 oz bottle, $9.75 via mail from Bruisin’ Ales. Thanks J & J.
Pour gives a large, rocky head with is persistent and leaves tremendous lace. The body is a touch darker than I would like for the style, exuding a hazy, cloudy orange rather than the golden yellow I was looking for. Still, the combination is pretty good looking nevertheless.
Nose has a great combo of BIG Belgian style yeasts and some white pepper. Tremendous promise in the aroma.
Tastes reflect the nose which is great, but also add some Belgian candy notes. It’s strange because the tastes tend to accentuate the sugar sweetness rather than the spicy pepper and yeast, which is a shame. Sweeter than the nose would suggest.
Still a very nice interpretation but I would advise a color adjustment and an emphasis in the taste that the nose would suggest. Still drinks extremely well, and is a really good effort at the real thing from an American brewer. Enjoyable and drinkable.
