Smells like cheap beer. Appears like beer. Tastes like sugar water, saltine cracker, piss, and fungus. Palate average. Overall trash. Better than mgd but not good.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is orange and wheat. The taste is very sweet with orange, coriander, and some wheat. It’s a bit heavy and filling for the style. It’s not a great interpretation of the style. There’s worse out there though.

Oh yucky, yucky, yucky Yankee piss drop. Caramel, banana, apple, sweet yucky, sticky bland, and basic ale. What a joke. This is no Belgian style ale, it is actually a complete and utter farce. I absolutlely detest this beer for its sheer mockery of a witbier, bordering on criminal. Utter Bollocks. Keep buying this piss at Wallmart to those whom are obviously uneducated in beer tasting. Oh,gag. Really Blue Moon, you should be held accountable for this misconception of a Belgian-style wheat beer, it is nothing but. Who are you trying to fool here, obviously those with no taste buds. My rating is so low, because this beer does not represent fully what it claims to represent. It is not a true witbier in my opinion. (and I have consumed many in my time). There are many New Zealand witbier brews that would blow this insipid drop out of the water. And biers like - Pierre Celis. Jopen Adriaan. EINSTÖK ICELANDIC WHITE ALE. LEFEBVRE BLANCHE DE BRUXELLES

På flaska från Wallmart. Mörk gul färg. Svag doft av citrus. Smakar som en Wiesbeer. Lite citron och skumbanan.

Cloudy yellow color, small white head. Light aroma of orange peel and wheat. Dry sweet taste has orange, lemon, wheat, spices, hops. Thin body and good carbonation. Decent wit.

Buona birra, gusto leggero ma intenso. Dissetante come una blanche che si rispetti, senza perderci in aroma.
