2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Very small white head that quickly dissipated, sparse lacing, fine-medium sized bubbles, carbonated, transparent, and a straw yellow hue. Malty and fruity aroma. Flavor was sweet and malty and rather boring and bland. Tingly and somewhat dry mouthfeel. Light body. Unimpressive and not recommended.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

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.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Bottle. Fairly hazy on the pour. A bit of citrus, not terribly complex or full tasting for a wit bier.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours to a thin golden body with a very thin white head. The aroma is orange juice and wit beer yeast. Coriander. The flavor is orange zest and tart wheaty yeast with coriander. The palate is lightly tart and has a subtle butterscotch.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
