12 oz bottle from Woodmans in Beloit, WI. Golden body, slightly hazy, little head...light lemon-sour nose with little spice or malt evident...sour fairly full body, touch citrusy, no yeasty character apparent...bland watery finish.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Hazy yellow with a medium quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of yeast, orange peel, light coriander, corn and light bubblegum. Taste of yeast, sweet malt, orange and bubblegum. A touch watery but finishes crisp, sort of seems something like a cross between a hefe and a wit bier.

One of the worst drainpours I’ve ever experienced. Fizzy pour of a liquid that is reminiscent of urine. Fake Tang-like orange aroma. Watery, fake orange flavor. Almost like a alka-seltzer.

bottle - Pours clear yellow with a thin head and smells of oranges. The light, sweet flavor has a fair amount of citrus. Itís a little too watery, even for what is typically a light style. Overall itís alright but quite unimpressive.

Pours a nice orange/yellow. Thatís where all things good with this one end. Aroma is horrible, very gasoline like. Flavor is oranges and not in a good way. Kinda like orange soda, very artificial tasting. Not good.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear yellow gold color. A wit needs to be a little hazy in my estimation to be attractive. I like blue eyes better than brown and when it comes to wits, I like hazy better than clear. Just a preference. The head dissipated quick snap and didnít leave any lace. If I were a driving instructor that would be two red check marks out of two. Lets move on to aroma. Where to begin...letís see...it smells nothing like a wit. I detected whiffs of grape candy, apple, and light malty caramel. Itís remarkably similar to the Berghoff hefeweizen I tried side by side with it. No citrus zest, no coriander. Flavor wassimilar and equally disappointing. Mouth feel was thin and watery. the red check marks are really adding up.

The label of this says "malt beverage with natural flavors." I am not sure if that is the same thing as a really, really awful take on a Belgian pale but thatís basically what this is. It pours cloudy pale and headless, kind of generally gross and lifeless looking, and smells like apple Jolly Ranchers and Juicy Fruity gum. This beer is something of a paradox too in that it some how combines the worst aspects of being oily and flat w/ being watery and having, sharp prickly carbonation. I am not sure Iíd ever see a take on a Belgian style worse than Blue Moon but I will be damned if this isnít a remarkably heinous drinking experience on par w/ any level of horribleness the beer brewing world has to offer.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Bottle. Fairly hazy on the pour. A bit of citrus, not terribly complex or full tasting for a wit bier.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 26, 2006
In the bottle at the HyVee Oktoberfest beer tasting in Council Bluffs. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Big orange aroma. This is a breakfast beer! Has a milky finish like a cream soda.

luttonm (3416) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2011
12oz in Chicago. Banana íruntsí candy, for sure. Big artificial sweet banana, wheat. Spritely and warm, pretty off-putting flavor.
