Left Coast's Belgian-Style Golden Ale

Type: Belgian Ale
Origin: San Clemente, CA, USA
Price: $5.50 per 22 oz

Beer two of the night. As one of the cheaper Belgian style beers, I decided to give this a try. This is a special release from Left Coast Brewing Company, and it is definitely special. The color and head on this are magnificent. It is a perfect golden brown color. The smell is very fruity and complex, almost like a Riesling. There are a great deal of citrus notes, and my girlfriend says this smells like smoked gouda. This is just a fantastic beer, and the high alcohol content (8%) could make this an interesting night
