A: Pours a nice white head. Color is a hazy golden orange.
S: Smell is belgian malty and quite yeasty. Pleasant.
T: I should mention I have had this beer multiple times this year and the taste has evolved since summer when I first had this. It is a nice bready maltiness, followed by a very subtle hop stabilization. Perhaps a bit too malty.
M: Moderately heavy bodied.
O: Overall I have enjoyed this beer all season as I drink what will likely be the last of this years vintage. I find Schlafly's beers to be inconsistent, but when they hit a good one, they are quite enjoyable. This is not a homerun, but its a solid american-belgian style golden ale offering from a brewery that makes pretty good limited releases...

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium gold with a thin, white head that is barely half a finger. It fades away quickly just leaving some light lacing.
Aroma is very fruity with peach, pear and orange along with some coriander spiciness from the yeast.
Flavor closely follows the aroma with fruit being very dominant. There is almost a little bit of tartness present. Malt is very light with just a slight bit of bread detectable in the background. Mouthfeel is on the thin side and bitterness is light with some stickiness and sweetness lingering.
Overall, a decent try at a Belgian Pale Ale but it is a notch below the authentic versions. Schlafly did a good job with this, though, and it is worth picking up should you see it.
