Good go-to beer in a pub or at home. Legit Belgian wheat beer at a commercial microbrew price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A superb thirst quencher - not a Hoegaarden look-alike - and not a hugely Belgian styled ale which suits me fine - a fresh fruity ale which tastes great super cold with a slice of orange. A surprise package and one for Australians - a no nonsense ale.

Tepid and sour with faint traces of what a Witbier can be. This is Coors dishonestly trying to make the public believe they are buying a craft brew.

Not bad. The wheat taste is a bit strong for me and without backing of other flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting a wheat beer with little head. Certainly a much stronger taste of orange and spices than other whites I have tried ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Som ett övningsöl är det här tjänligt, innan man har fått in snitsen på ölhävandet, men så fort man har utvecklat smaklökar har man lika mycket behållning av det som en vuxen har av välling. Endast för personer i den mentala åldern 1-3 år.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very citrussy with lemon and orange peel. Taste is a bit sweet with some wheat, citrus, banana and spices. Medium body and carbo. A bit weird.

Dochops (4) - Lincoln, Alabama, USA - AUG 1, 2014 does not count
The first wheat ale I tried a while back. While not totally impressive I will drink a few at a sports bar or while grilling. Does good with or without orange slices. 12oz bottle, pours orangeish clear, aroma is citrus and wheat, little to no head, tastes citrusy and wheat slight grapefruit hint, palate is crisp and carbonated. Overall good for the summer and price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy, bit homebrew style, yeasty, fairly strong alc %, something different, the flavour to me is like drinking a lager that you have spiked with a liquer or spiced Scandinavian white spirit... not that I have done that. often.

Bottle. Hazy gold. Aroma and taste are wheat, citrus, floral and biscuit. Medium mouthfeel and light carb. Definitely on the good end of the spectrum for a macro.
