Not a very interesting beer in my opinion. Easy to drink, sure, but it leaves something to be desired.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Pretty good, but Iíve had far better whites. a bit too much spice in this one. If thereís a contest between this, Bud, and Miller, certainly go for Blue Moon.

Hazy gold with medium white head. Light citrus aroma. Clean tasting, again with predominate citrus flavors. Slightly acidic astringent finish. Thirst quenching, but not particularly distinguished.

Tap at Holy Grail in Cincinnati. Pours like any other wit, except for the orange slice in it ... silly bartender. Anyway, this was my first foray into white beers back in the day, and man, has it been left in the dust. I mean, itís decent and drinkable, but boring. Thereís the requisite wheat and lemon citrus, but none of the spice. I guess cutting corners is what to expect from mass brewed beers.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 I would swear something changed in the taste and feel of this beer since its introduction. What seemed to be a mild imitation of a Belgian White now seems like a flat-tasting very average American light beer.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Wonderful, surprising beer. Beautiful golden cloudy color. Extremely smooth drinking, feels thicker than it really is at first. Try both with and without the traditional slice of orange. Great easy to find beer.

Shining cloudy gold with a solid white cover. Straightforward lemon and coriander nose does not feel too up front, rather well integrated in fact, so is the vanilla. Fairly malty in mouth, it remains quite sweet, but the balancing acidity has the sufficient force to avoid stickiness. A textbook example.

Had this on tap at the maryland renaissance faire. Little to no taste really. There were some hop charasteristics. I could definently tell that they had attempted to make a witbier, the palate was just too subdued for me to care. Really....donít buy this. Donít damn yourself to the purgatory between micro and macro.

For a beer from a major brewer and highly accessible, this is remarkably above-average; I was pleasantly surprised. This truly defines "light session" beer, the kind of thing one would go after to quench oneís thirst without an insult to oneís palate. At the corner supermarket with a pretty general selection, mostly of macros, this is in the far-and-away top three along with SNPA (a superior but not as much a session beer) and Sam Adams.
