They classify this as a golden ale, mildly hopped with delicate Belgian flavors. I'm going to categorize it as a Belgian Pale Ale for now, if anyone feels it should belong in another style hopefully the beer gods at BA can comply :)

A - Pours a clear straw yellow with a nice foamy white head. Minimal lacing but good retention on the head. Looks like a pilsener to me, nothing special in the appearance.

S - Belgian yeast and some bready malts, but not a whole lot else going on.

T - Belgian yeast up front gives way to a toasty and slightly fruity flavor. Finishes dry and slightly hoppy with a nice tartness. Very well balanced and refreshing without being overpowering.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the level of carbonation is just right. Not too flat nor overcarbonated.

D - This is a nice light golden ale with Belgian flavors infused. You would never guess it was 6.5% by the taste either as the alcohol is very well hidden. Dangerously sessionable!

Overall this was pretty good, it has flavors of a Hefeweizen, golden ale, and Belgian blonde infused into one tasty and refreshing beer. I wasn't as blown away as I have been by their other specialty beers but it's decent.
