This is listed here as a Wit, but it's probably trying to be a Belgian Pale or even a pale strong ale. Actually, it is more of a psuedo-Belgian horseshit brew, even though it is supposedly imported from Belgium. Seems strange that the Importer would slap their name on it, rather than the actually brewery.
Hazy golden orange with strands of sediment. Anyone remember the "pale ale" scene from American Pie. Yeah, that is what this looks like. Fizzy, fake head screams its way to oblivion.
Are those pale malts on the nose? Candi sugar? Nope, I think it is dish soap.
Taste actually redeems this one at first. Almost tastes authentic, for a moment. Slightly candi sweet with touch Belgian maltiness. Whoops...here comes the rest. Watery, soapy, sour, (moldy) yeasty, bready, nondescript. Grain alcohol looms late. Vodka?
Forget this one.
Diluted attempt at whatever it is trying to be. No wonder Riva decided to stay anonymous on this.
Boring and laughable.

All Saints Brands is an importing company from Minneapolis that is promoting this brew from this Belgian Brewery. Despite the name I believe that it is a Wit. Lots of carbonation and a very big head. Slightly cloudy and dark gold. Sweet aroma with phenol qualities. Fairly smooth flavor start to finish. Wheat and phenol noticable. Short finish. Lighter mouthfeel
