2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
OK, I’m No. 2. Any beer that puts "Malt Beverage with natural flavors" scares me. Who are they marketing to? Dark golden color with a dissipating white head. Orange blossoms, cardamom and light vanilla clog the nasal passages. Has a odd flavored alcohol nose. Light malt, melon and orange peel flavors. Very synthetic flavors. We have an american wheat category, perhaps we now will need and american wit category. Egad!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wow, I get to be first to rate a bottled beer! Anyway, it has a clear goledn hue with a fading head and little lace. The aroma hints of perfume and floral hops, corriander, cardamom, and lemon. The taste is better than the smell. Hints of lemon, orange, honeydew, spice and wheat. The finish is short and clean. The mouthfeel is fizzy, lively, and watery. Okay brew, nothing outstanding.
