Take your favorite cheap yellowish beer, dump in a package of Kool-Aid powder and let it sit out in the sun for a day. Stir, chill, and drink. Even worse on tap.

Jokine (51) - Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 14, 2013
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Aroma is of wheat and a bit boozy. The Orange flavour comes out nice at the front of the pallet. Not much of an aftertaste with just a slight sourness/bitterness. Nice beer.

Tca21 (51) - Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Appearance: it has a cloudy and hazy yellow head with a thin head. Aroma: smells like orange peel, wheat, lime and some spices. Taste: it has some citrus, ginger and fruit notes. Quite refreshing and nicely balanced.

cranesareflying (50) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2002
Very light cloudy color with a white head, a bitter aroma, another orange-peel beer, like Orval, but I prefer this one, as it’s not as bitter or sour, this is a medium-bodied, light, pale malt, well carbonated, warm, crisp, and uplifting, very refreshing on a hot summer’s day, a little less potent in the bottle, at the Fireside Restaurant in Chicago it’s served with a slice of lemon in the hexagonal glass, in my view, I much prefer the Three Floyds Alpha King Pale Ale, which by the way, happens to be served there as well.

My favorite white beer. I think the belgians are slightly better at makin white beer than the Germans. A definite must try.

Quaffmeister (50) - Henlow, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2003
(33 ml bottle) Cloudy yellow body, with a dense white head. Banana hints as a backdrop to a citrus aroma. Smooth crisp taste, with an interessting palate that I can't place. A good summer session beer.

xray (50) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Pretty opaque light color. I find this beer less carbonated on tap (which I like better). Slight citric taste makes this a great Summer session beer. One of the better beers that is available at your average liquor store.

Beerguys (50) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2005 I had to re-rate this beer. I had this on tap at a local pub. Beer was poured in one of the big Hoegaarden glasses. Poured cloudy pale yellow with a nice head. Lots of wheat & yeast in the smell. The citrus in taste was very forward. I have also had this from a bottle and they were lacking a little in the taste but still better that my first experence with this beer (mabey I got a bad batch the first time)
