This beer is about as Belgian as my butthole, and any reviewer from Missouri who describes a Missouri beer with the words "sea air" should think again about how close he's keeping his intellectual creations to his own butthole. I suggest they are not as far apart as they were intended to be.
This beer is a Belgian beer with a domestic nose and aftertaste. If you ever wondered where the brewer got, or what is was he did to, his water the first time you tasted a Budweiser, you will not be surprised by the finish of this beer. It's fine, but not a good "Golden Ale in the Belgian Style."
It is fine if you like to drink, but Belgians aren't supposed to be clear, son.

Snagged a bottle of this for the typical single price of $2.50. Into a pint glass.
A - Got very little head from this thinner than a 1/4 inch with a pretty good pour. Pulls back to a very thin lace ring with a semi hazy bright yellow orange beer.
S - Smell is pretty good very vibrant fruit notes similar to a Tripel but I can't really pick up anything other than that fruit sweetness no bread or hops. Must be very faint.
T - Ah the taste actually does have a bitter edge I didn't expect that sort of clashes with the fruit and leave the palate mildly sweet and slightly chalky. Repeated sips are pretty much the same just a touch more fruity yeasts.
M - For 7% to me it drinks very heavy not as "crisp" as they say. In fact its pretty much drinks the same as their tripel with less hops.
Overall its OK nothing really to faun over like say their pumpkin ale but its still a decent beer I will not be picking up again.

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.
