Foul aroma and watery color with fizzy diminishing white head but the taste of the attempt at a witbier is not as bad as the haters would describe it.
light, sweet, and refreshing. I’ve had more expensive and pretentious brewers come up with worse Wits. Not horrible.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce bottle- I didn’t know this was an AB product until afer I drank it, then my reaction was "Oh, that explains it".
Poured a cloudy cider yellow with no head to speak of, yeasty, doughy aroma. Almost no discernable taste at all, maybe alcohol with a hint of TANG breakfast drink?
Well below average, skip it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Bonita Liquor. I picked this up only because I was interested on how budwater would make a Belgian white. Well, their attempt failed miserably and tasted exactly like a Budweiser but with a speck of coriander added to it. Appearance was a glowing whitish yellow and had a short life of head. The aroma was the only factor to impress me with its coriander and orange peel scent. However, the flavor was a minimum amount of those ingredients and taste like an ordinary Bud which kept bothering me throughout the rest of the drink. Poor attempt and they shouldn’t be wasting any precious ingredients to make this crap any more.

Typical Belgiun White, and not a bad one at that. Nice citrus aroma and taste. I can’t drink too many of this style, but tastes good on a hot day.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a decent white foamy head. Aroma is of fruit/citrus and wheat. Taste is of citrus, wheat, spice and is kind of sweet. Very smooth and clean tasting. Overall, this beer wasn’t half bad and I am kind of surprised that A-B makes it. On a side note I would recommend following the pouring instructions on the bottle.

On tap, pours a golden body with white head. Fruity malt aroma. Light-bodied but decently well-balanced. Flavors of malt, citrus, yeast, and spice. Clean finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Dave & Jacquie’s in Defiance, MO. A-B continues their non-threatening foray into craft beer. Pours a lightly hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head that diminishes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Light spice and citrus in the nose. Light-bodied and effervescent with mild yeast, spice and citrus flavors. The finish is clean and fruity with a mild spice lingering. Nothing offensive or interesting going on here.

An uncomplicated, unfiltered, belgian white. Really nothing special about it, not great, not bad, just in the middle, good for someone looking to drink a beer better that a crappy light beer but wanting to keep it simple

AB is learning. It pours golden with some haze and little bit of head. Smells, as you would guess, like oranges and grass. Better then most of AB products but is is still light on flavor. It could use some more spices and malt. I think it tasted better the blue moon but I have not been able to decide yet. A Good gateway beer for Bud Light drinkers to get out and see the world with.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 Poured a hazy, yellow color with minimal head and no lacing. A strong citrus (orange) aroma with just a bit of spices. The beer had a light body and texture with an orange aftertaste. I didn’t think it was a bad beer. It is more of an orange beer with a hint of wheat instead of a wheat beer with a hint of orange (a la Upland Wheat or Blue Moon). I would also like a bit more of the spices to come out of a witbier.
