Bootlegger's Golden Chaos

Type: belgian golden ale
Origin: Fullerton, California
Price: $7.89 per 750 mL

This is a new one I found at BevMo!, I was in the mood for a belgian, and the price was right. On the website, they say they used rock candy in this during the brewing process, which is definitely a first for beers I've had. They say this lends it a perfect fruit balance, and I have to completely agree. Everything about this is pretty perfect. Nice burnt orange color, good opaqueness, nice alcoholy smell with light fruity sweet aromas. The one fruit that I can really see popping through is apricot, but I can't pick anything else out. If you changed the label and put this in a Belgian supermarket, I have no doubt this would sell out. Good job Bootlegger's.
