Very light pour with a light orange wheat aroma. Flavor is low but not bad. Just a little too much CO2 in this guy. Decent blend but just a bit of lack on the flavor.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Two six packs for $5? Sure, why the hell not...Pours a golden color with a fizzy head. Head dissipated before I even finished pouring. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is of citrus, spice, and straw. Taste was very bready, with hops, citrus fruit, and spice. Not overly amazing, but not offensive in anyway. Would drink it again if there was no alternative.

HonkeyBra (3321) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2008
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.

bhensonb (10906) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. Hazy golden color with a very slight white head. Seems to have a light citrus aroma. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is lightly spiced citrus with some grain. It’s ok. Milder than Belgian wits.

The beer pours with a cloudy yet quickly disappearing head. Not much aroma offered by the beer. Taste is light with a hint of orange. For the price, it works.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Kind of ordered this on accident. Never been a big witbier fan and this was a pretty weak example. At least it was good enough to know what it was, but that was pretty watery. It just tasted very artificial, like it was flavored with a powder that had to be stirred in.

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.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - MAY 28, 2008
Pours a hazy orangeish yellow with a decent white head. Aroma has hints of orange peel and has a nice wheaty flavor, along with some spice.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2008
Decent beer all around, pours a cloudy, hazey sort of orangeish colour with a nice white top. Aroma is sweet and enticing, mouthfeel is initially very wheaty, and fruitforward- orange peel, finishes a little tart, which i expected. nice beer.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Flanagan’s Liquors in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thin white ring. Aroma of light bready malt, a touch of banana, oranges and some dry yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, well carbonated with flavors of multi-grain malt, some orange zest and earthy spices. Finish is slightly sweet with a light orange zest aftertaste that quickly disappears.
