I like this beer better than Blue Moon, but it is not as good as the traditional UFO. This might be a good candidate for a good old power hour!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from that shithole Shaw’s, worse yet, from the discontinued shelf two weeks before its BB date. Pale cloudy orange with lasting head and lace. Strong coriander and old oranges aroma with wheaty tang. Very bready sweet orangy wheaty malts with spicy coriander and orange zest finish. Too heavy on the sweetness. Maybe the coriander receded with time? Too thick for the style and slightly cloying with hints of honey or caramel. Tastes much more like Blue Moon than it does Hoegaarden. Don’t think I’ll finish it since I got stuck with some Hoegaarden in the fridge even though I hate A-B.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light golden from 12 oz, mildly cloudy with quickly diminishing generous head. Aroma of orange peel and malt. Very light and surprisingly bland taste, possibly due to the wheat, with hoppy aftertaste. Filling mouthfeel. Decent beer, could probably drink a lot of it, but not much of the finer flavors to appreciate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a sweet, orangey summer beer. It might be a little over the top for some people but I'll take it for a nice summer evening at the grill. The orange is seriously strong, so strong I wonder if there are 'natural' flavors added

Can. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is bready. Very light with some spiciness and citrus flavor ending with a touch of hopes. I like this one on a hot day but it is pretty light and not a lot of flavor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Code date of 3/15. Appearance: pale golden with a slight haze.
Aroma: Orange peel dominates, with a hint of apple. Almost champagne like.
Taste: Light maltiness with bready notes. Orange peel and citrus dominate the flavor, with a slight spice from the coriander. Low bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light body with high carbonation.
Finish: lingering coriander spice with a hint of orange peel.
Overall: With the orange peel and coriander I assume this is a Belgian witbier inspired American wheat. This manages to hit that hybrid of style, but seems to be lacking an increased body that would enhance te complexity of the beer. It feels too thin and light, with a carbonation and aroma reminiscent of champagne.

It was fine but not as good as I hope it would be. Probably better in the summer on the beach than the middle of winter. Color and foam good but the taste was a bit weak for a Hefe.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not that special of a Belgian Wit. A hazy yellow pour. Aroma has some citrus and wheat. Taste is a mix of citrus, wheat, and some spices. A somewhat dry aftertaste form the wheat/yeast and light citrus.
