Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Bruegala 2009 sampling - Pours a cloudy yellow with light cloudy yeast particles and a very small white head. Aroma is very light with a cookie, bready and grainy malt note with a light flowery coriander note. Flavor has an light orange drink (not orange juice, think orange Kool-aid), low spicy note and an overall non-distinct flavor. Body is light, thin and very highly carbonated. Looks like AB is trying to compete with Blue Moon with this one but cant quite hit the quality of BM but it is a bit better than BL by itself. Props to them for trying something different.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle. Poured a somewhat orange color similar to blue moon with a nice medium head. Aroma of some light hops, wheat, and some citrus. Taste is somewhat similar to bluemoon in that it tasted fake. I tasted like flavoring was added. But all in all i would say it wasnt terrible.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2009
9/5/09 from 12oz bottle. Aroma has a suprisingly strong wheat character, which is doughy sweet/sour and has a light citrus spice background. Appearance is hazy gold with a moderate maintained white head. Flavor is very light with wheat malt even with pils strength and very low bittering without any spice character. Mouthfeel is low bodied with a relatively low carb texture. Overall, quite drinkable, and not bad, but could use a bit more spice.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Received an early release of this wheat ale. From 12-oz bottle pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of golden grain malt some grassy hops, a touch of orange zest and corn. taste is light bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some orange zest and coriander. Flavor is where the coriander is more noticeable but it is still a diet beer caliber beer. Finish is watery, with a fast disappearing coriander aftertaste.

bobman006 (339) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. Sample from the distributor. 4.1% ABV. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Aromas of wheat, orange and coriander. Flavors same as aromas but far more washed out with Bud backwash. Foamy mouthfeel with tingling carbonation. Watery. Better than Bud Light.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Got this as a sample from the distributor... Iím going to make this short and say I wasnít expecting much... something like BLL but with oranges and spices. Iím kind a pleasantly surprised. It actually looks interesting in the glass and hazy, unfiltered orangish amber, carries an intense head, but settles down quickly, but not as quickly as the regular AB lineup... I detect no lacing on the glass. The beer wins on color alone. Aromas have subtle orange, cinnamon and coriander... I donít detect wheat yet, until the beer warms up a little later, then you can detect some of that classic rotten Bud backbone... but if you drink it fast enough, and you will... you wonít notice. Easy to down and could appeal to some folks, but Iím too dedicated supporting the craft beer industry, not the big guys.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2009

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2009
I got this as a sample bottle from a distributor (perks of the business). This beer is super light and this simply must be a lame marketing scheme, much like BL Lime. It pours vaguely cloudy with a decent head, but it basically tastes like Bud Light with vague, vague hints of citrus in the finish. Itís not bad, but itís not nearly what theyíre saying.

Butters (4047) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Sampled on draft at the Music City Brewers Festival. Pours a hazy yellow with a ring of white head. Fairly sweet, orange, coriander, and white pepper. Iím thinking this should probably be a belgian wit. Fairly typical american macro attempt at crafting a good beer, but I did prefer this over blue moon actually.
