COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Style Wheat is as refreshing as a beer can be. Try topping it with a wedge of citrus to complement its aromatic Cascade hops and its hints of orange and coriander. Light and crisp, it's just what you need to keep cool during strenuous Northwest days spent hiking, boating or just plain basking.

poured a thin weak head that fell quickly. clear golden/honey color, no appearance of wheat. holy crap this smells like froot loops! Someone told me he likes Blue Moon because of that aroma, Iíll turn him on to this. all i get in the aroma is the artificial sweetness that makes me want to follow my nose (it always knows) to a good-for-you balanced breakfast. the sweet flavor dominates up front but doesnít linger too long or coat the tongue, but when it dissipates there isnít any malt or hops or anything else to take over. thereís no wheat flavor but it is very crisp and clean and aside from the initial sweetness, there are no skunky, sour, or spoiled sides to deter me finishing it.

Screwtop bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin and fading white head. Fruit, citrus and cotton candy in the aroma. Light body and active carbonation. Cotton candy taste with a little citrus participation. Thereís the faintest hint of wheat that almost helps to dry out in time for the finish, but not quite. "This ainít no beer, this here is sodee-pop." All miserable attempts at joking aside, how can this possibly be called a Witbeer? Whereís the wheat? Whereís the sour edge? Shouldnít there be some spiciness in here somewhere? Or is the over-carbonation fighting with my taste buds? And itís completely clear, even at refrigerator temps. Whatís up with that? Is this stuff mis-labeled??? Iím kinda torn between wanting to give it a bad rating because I donít particularly like it; and giving it a horrible rating because itís so far off the style. This stuff is just too weird.

pours a clear yellow-orange with a thin white head. smell is fruit, tangerine, some spice, and maybe just a touch of wheat hiding in the back. taste is sweet, a little tart, spice, orange peel, aftertaste lingers and is not good. overall like the others have said, too sweet and no wheat.

From a bottle at Belmont Station--Poured a clear golden-copper body with a fluffy white head. Nose unbelievably similar to Fruit Loops cereal. Flavor, too! Synthetic, artificial, lab-produced beer with a mild hint of Belgian yeastiness. Citric bomb. Ick!

Ok looking beer, bright clear orange with a nice enough large off white head. Aroma is mostly citric, with small hint of coriander. Very sweet taste, some citric, very little spice, little wheat. Watery palate. I had suspected this was the same beer as Summer Wheat, but though it is similar the ingredients in this onne seem even tamer and watered down than that. Having said that, if you like sweet beer, it really isnt THAT bad.

12 oz bottle. Aroma of orange...yeah, thatís about all I can smell. Pours golden amber (weird for a wit) with a fastly diminishing head, very little lacing. Big bubbles rise to the surface. Tastes like...oranges! And wheat. Tastes like a quickly produced assembly line beer made to cash in on the Belgian White beer craze here in the U.S. Now that Miller owns it, thatís no surprise. Highly carbonated. Despite the fact that this beer has no character and little skill was involved in the making of it, itís quite drinkable.

12 oz. bottle- Pours clear golden with almost no head. The flavor is sweet and tasty but not complex enough, total Blue moon ripoff.

Bottle: Thanks to rcasta. Not what you expect for the style but drinkable, fruity over malt notes, citrus and herbal. refreshing.
