Pours a medium foamy head on a skunky smelling flesh colored beer. Flavor is like a Corona, kind of stinky and bitter. Not my kind of beer.

Its interesting to see AB trying so hard to make it into the craft beer market. The only problem is they use cheap ingrediants, and all there beers taste like they use Bud for the base. This beer was no different. Pours a yellow color that is far to orange to look like a wit. Smells sour and of czech hops. Tastes like, surprise! bud with a shot of Hoegaarden dropped in it. Weak taste but some of the spices are decent. I guess those are easy to come by.

12 oz. bottle poured into tumbler- poured a hazy orange yellow, white head slowly bubbled away. Aroma of oranges, lemons, yeast, and a note of malt- honestly, itís appealing, let alone for an AB product. Hits the mouth with a thin-medium body, alot of citrus notes, malt is detectable but not standing out like it should be for this style, finish goes away rapidly. If AB could just figure out how to make a beer finish...

Poured a golden cloudy color, was very sweet with lots of orange spicy flavor. Not very complex, but easy to drink. About what youíd expect from AB.

Had this at the Budweiser brewery in Fort Collins, and at Old Chicago. I had it for 2 reasons:
1. I Hadnít had it before when I went to the Bud brewery and got a free sample.
2. I needed it to chalk up another beer on my World Beer Tour card at Old Chicago.
Otherwise, this beer isnít really worth your time.

Pours cloudy golden yellow with a small head. Looks like a good hefe. Smells of orange peel, lemon and corriader. Tastes like a good hefeweizen without having to add the orange slice. Pretty darn good, although the after taste, though short lived, has a bit of funk to it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours a light gold with a medium, foamy white head. Smelled of light citrus and mild wheat, nothing really stands out. The flavor also was a little bland, nothing offensive, but nothing really good either. Some light orange citrus, with no real wheat definition whatsoever. definitely not a good example of this style. Nothing much else to say about it except I wont be reaching for it again.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival Ď08... Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a large, frothy, white head. Pretty good retention. Grainy aroma with very mild coriander. Light-bodied and watery with tingly carbonation. Not a lot of flavor to it... mostly seltzer water. Mildly acidic and lightly sweet with almost no bitterness and the most faint traces of smoke and spice. Short, crisp, muted citrus finish.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown bottle from Hi-Time. Aroma of wheat. Iíd be imagining fruit or spice. Hazy light gold color with a decent white head that tries to lace. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is wheat, with a little of that standard AB corniness. There is the barest trace of orange peel and perhaps clove. A little lemon comes along. Itís not much of a wit, and lacks the banane for a hefe. However, it is ever so much more drinkable than Bud. After some time a little more fruit and spice builds in the mouth. Iíd say itís definitely drinkable, but applying Marcusí rule Iíll find a better beer.
