For the money, Trader Joe's Providential Belgian Style Golden Ale a decent little beer. Calling it "decent" undersells it, in fact. It pours bright yellow, only slightly darker than an adjunct lager, with a gigantic head. The aroma is sweet and spicy. There's citrus and bananas and ginger, and a little nutmeg. All of those notes are big in the flavor, and there's a big, hoppy twang that I hadn't expected. I enjoyed this and I'd buy it again in a minute.
