A- White head 1 to 1 1/2 inches. Light lacing around the edge of the glass. Hazy Yellow in color. Medium-Strong carbonation bringing bubbles to the surface as it is consumed.

S- Lighter citrusy notes increasing as it warms. Grain and yeast aromas noticable mixed with hoppiness and some other spices

T- Hoppy, Citrusy, and Maltiness brilliantly combined with light spices to form a solid belgian pale ale.

M- Light bodied and smooth with just the right amount of carbonation to give a pleasingly drinkable mouthfeel. No alcohol warmth of which to speak.

O- A wonderful beer that combines just the right amount of hoppiness with other components.

This beer pours light blonde like lemonade with a huge fluffy white head that I had to sweep off a few times when trying to fill my tulip glass. There is very limited nose on this. A small bit of the citrus zest that the beer is brewed with. The flavor is very appealing especially when shooting for a low ABV beer. My first patersbier was a success. I enjoyed the drinkable light Belgian flavor.

Body is a hazy golden color, yellowish at the bottom of the glass fading to a darker color where it meets he head, nice large white head.

Smells of sugar, yeast, mild citrus fruit, some spice.

Much more citrus in the flavor, lemon and orange zest, pepper and other spices again, fades into yeastiness. Somewhere between a typical Belgian pale and a wit, pretty tasty.

Excellent carbonation, good mouthfeel all around.
