Baird Joie de Vivre Golden Ale Aroma and Taste
Baird Joie de Vivre Golden Ale pours out a very hazy golden straw colour with a frothy off-white golden head. The aroma coming off the beer reminds me of other Belgian beers. It veers towards the hoppy side and the citrus aroma that emanates from the beer reminds me of pears.
The body of Baird Joie de Vivre Golden Ale is thicker than expected with a spicey kick to it. Not one that is going to get your puckering up your lips but it is noticeable and really makes this beer hard to pigeon hole, as craft beer drinkers tend to do. Baird Joie de Vivre Golden Ale does have a nice citrus edge to it, paired with the aforementioned Belgian edge to it. It finishes off with a slight twang of bitterness. Is it a golden ale? Is it a Belgian? Heck, I’ll be damned if I know.
