A: Pale orange/golden color with 1 finger of off white fizzy head. Head dissolves fast leaving a light ring of lacing along the top that doesn't stick to the glass as it goes down.
S: Smells of toasted bread hints of toffee and honey a little Belgian sweet melon fruity aroma in there as well.
T: Lots of sweetness in this one. Hints of caramel, honey that blend with a bread like backbone. Finishes with tangy sweetness of orange, grapefruit and a little tartness that is hard to describe (similar to a blueberry tart without the flavor of blueberries) thrown in there. Well balanced and good flavor profile in there.
M: Quite thin mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation blends the bready flavor into a sweet finish
O: Not bad. Good mix of flavors as it goes down. A good entry to the Belgian style without being to overpowering with the sweetness or alcohol content. As the name says, it is a good session beer and nice representation of a Belgian beer.

LOOK: Bright golden/amber, touch of haze, thin white lace.
SMELL: Fresh toasty bread, light bubble gum, floral hops, faint tropical fruits.
TASTE: Crisp carbonation, creamy, light on the palate, dry upfront, bitter, lemony, apple-y, toasty malts, biscuity, dry, yeasty, tea-like linger.
Not too shabby. Reminds me of some of the first basic Belgian Pale Ales I had in my early beer geek days. No frills, but it's got some flavorful and quite drinkable. Wish it was a tad bit cleaner on the finish though.

Shared at bu11zeye's 10,000th rating tasting.
The beer pours a yellowish color with a white head. The aroma is fairly fruity with a lot of orange and lemon notes, with a little bit of malt and some yeast thrown in. The flavor is similar, with a nice wheat malt backbone, with some grain and some orange also present. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fairly straightforward. Nothing offensive, but nothing really stands out.
