Friend of mine gave me one to try.

A - Pale orange. Slightly off-white head with low lacing.

S - Strong Belgian funk with some hop. Not overall appealing until after first drink.

T - Upfront Belgian phenolic with some light citrus hop character. Sourness predominates the overall taste with some sweetness and minute bitterness. Belgian flavor and sweetness linger on the palate. Similar to a Belgian wit but with more hops and more hops.

M - low/moderate mouth-feel with moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky on the finish from the Belgian yeast.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend it to those opposed to Belgian blonds and wits but if you're feeling adventurous I'd give it a try.

Appears slight hazed with a copper amber body, white head leaves sparse speckled lacing. Aromatics bring an interesting funky tartness, nice citrus notes with balanced cereal grains. Flavor a bit astringent with yeast phenols an edge of medicinal band aid, but it's not overbearing. Tart citrus notes with a bit of funky brett noted, almost a yogurt like quality about it. I'm really enjoying the complexity but I do sense some imperfections. Mouthfeel finishes dry with a bit of a pucker, medium bodied with even carbonation. Drink ability is decent but you better be ready for the sour edge, it's tame compared to other ales in the same realm worth a shot to try it.

A thick, murky orange that looks to be almost orange-red without much ambient light, it turns out to have a little bit of lighter orange-yellow in the edges. It's not quite opaque. The head that forms manages about half a finger and fades to foam somewhat quickly. The foam that does remain remains for the long term and leaves reasonabla lacing on the glass.
I get mostly fruits and wheat-like notes in the nose. Perhaps it needs a moment to warm. When it does get that moment, a bit more candy sweetness and some grassy notes comes out. Light, yes, and somewhat nondescript, it's nonetheless a pretty nice aroma.
A tart sweetness comes out on the tongue before the tartness takes over. From middle to finish, a strange sourness emerging from the blend of malts, yeast and a floral hops note mars the union of flavors. This doesn't come together. It does improve as it sits.
This beer starts off with a crispess that remains all the way. Smoothness also stays strong. It's a little on the heavier side for the style, but it works reasonably well. It goes a little dry into the finish.

Thanks to Joe for this one! Review from notes.

A: Poured a light copper/orange color with a small off-white head on top that has decent retention and thin lacing.

S: Rather sweet and sugary. A bit of caramel, faint Belgian yeast, and a some flowery/grassy hops.

T: Again, on the sweeter side for the style, not overly hoppy, but there is some light grassy hops and a little bit of citrus. A little Belgian yeast comes through and a little bit of spice.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Approachable for style. Easy drinking.

This Belgian-style pours a clean amber, with medium head. I get slight lace, but not very showy in presentation.

Nose is mildly spiced. I don't get a lot to go on here.

Taste is, as before, spicy and warm, with a bit of hoppiness complementing the malty character. Hints of fruit are here, too, and this one's a cool amalgamation of a Belgian and a pale ale. Not bad, but not one I'd revisit.

Color is dark orange, but not quite to copper. Yeast and orange dominate the aroma. Sweet malt with a toasted background. That pleasant funk from Belgian yeast. It's almost like orange butterscotch. Hops only show up in the dry, slightly bitter finish.

This doesn't have great reviews elsewhere, but I'm baffled. I think it's delicious.

12 oz. bottle into an IPA glass

A - Moderate pour produces a 2 finger head in height that dissipates rather slowly. The head is a thick foam. The beer itself is hazy and amber in color with moderate carbonation visible in the form of small bubbles rising fairly quickly toward the surface. 4/5

S - Dark stone fruit, caramel, sorghum, peat moss, and a light orange fruitless make up the bulk of the aroma. The aroma is distinctly Belgian with Belgian yeast really standing out. Rather sweet and fruity overall with the yeast being a strong backup. 3.5/5

T - Light caramel, candy sugar, and Belgian yeast make up the initial flavor on the tongue. Sourdough bread comes in right after the yeast. This quickly transitions to an orange fruit flavor and an earthy sorghum-like sweetness along with a bit of peat moss and musty hay. Fairly complex but also light at the same time due to the flavors coming and going rather quickly. Very little bitterness to speak of and no lingering bitterness on the palate. 3.5/5

M - Medium bodied with a light carbonation burn up front. This beer wets the tongue nicely and features no drying at all. A bit sticky at times. 3.75/5

O - The focus here is definitely on the Belgian part of Pale Ale. Drinks fairly light and is somewhat complex with the typical Belgian flavors. The yeast really comes to the forefront with his one and plays the starring role. 3.5/5

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down, leaving a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity yeast are present in the nose along with hints of Belgian yeast.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has hints of caramel malts and a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a little lighter in body compared to other beers in the style.
