Poured into a glass..
A: Copper Orange, Hazy cause the beer is unfiltered. Not a minus ;-)
S: Lemon, Bitter Orange, Tangy, Not too much beyond that.
T: Lemony, Malty, Bitter Hoppiness lingering on the finish
M: Light carbonation very natural tasting.
O: I like this beer as it's a pale ale with belgian yeast so it's like a belgian wheat beer except it's a pale ale. Nice hybrid and nice for something different.

Disclaimer: it should be noted that this beer is, in fact, a Blonde ale, being completely miscategorized by whoever added it. Also, according to the brewer, it's 5.8%.
Not exactly "blonde" by anyone's standards, this beer is more of a thickly clouded brown-orange. It's too muddy to have any brightness to it, either. The head starts off looking like it could be something, but ultimately is little more than some wispy foam on top with bubbling at the edges. It leaves very little lacing in any form, but I suppose it's recognizable as a beer.
The nose is very dusty and really accentuates a strong earthiness, though lots of lemon zest and a bit of orange peel also comes out. There's a floral note there throughout, showing that it's lightly hopped. A bit of a spicy bite also tickles the nostrils.
The dustiness comes through immediately and all the way through. Lemon is also there, though less strongly, while it's much, much fruitier than in the aroma. The orange seems to have come out over it. The floral hops also make there way out, but turn somewhat vegetal at the end.
It's not especially light-bodied, has a certain dryness to it, and carries some spritz on the tongue that dies off in the middle.

Caramel colored creation with all but a thinnest bit o' fizzy head. Nose carries that sweet banana bit of Belgian yeast but little else. Taste pops out with a little tartness but not a ton of any other predominant Belgian characteristic. Finally, the finish is really thin. Decent, but doesn't stand up to other BPA's.
