A nice way to transition into different seasons by tasting this cloudy orange scented brew. Coriander is evident, as mentioned earlier, and its a very pleasent light bodied taste. the head was beautiful with a sweet aroma. I think its AB’s attempt to lure microbrew fans over slowly. I guess its a smart way to start with a witbier.

Bottled. Cloudy orange-yellow colour with a medium white head. Yeasty, fruity aroma. Nice flavour but a little heavy on the citrus notes for a witbier.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 Draft at Greenleafe cafe. Very cloudy light yellow with small white head. Bandaid, medicinal, orange fruit aroma (a bit funky actually). Almost tastes infected. Carbonic bite. Tastes of sweet lemons and a bit grassy. Not enjoyable. Bubblegum finish. originial rating 1.8 Second tasting at Colonial Downs was not as bad.

Pours orangey gold and has a pleasantly hazy body with a thin head that fades quickly. Smells more like sunny delight than beer. Tastes more like sunny delight than beer too. Not offensive, but the tangerine flavors overpower what redeming characteristics the beer may have.

I am a fan of wits. This is pretty good. Bud Light attempts wits. But good. Good orangy taste. Pours golden.

Hazy, mostly opaque orange with a quick-fading white head. Aroma is faintly doggy at first, but settles into artificial orange lemon herbal tea with a bit of ginger. These aroma are faintly represented in the taste, which is just plain watery.

Pours dark, cloudy yellow with an orange smell. Didn’t expect much from a belgian white made by AB, pretty much got what I expected. Extremely light and watered down with an off-balanced citrus taste. Still, I could see this as being refreshing on a hot day.

Compared to its peers, below average. Compared to its siblings at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, above the norm. Cloudy feature is a plus. Fruit is a must and a drawback, as it demonstrates how weak this beer really is. Think a Corona version of a wheat beer. Nevertheless, quite refreshing. Served on tap at Bare Bones (Stuart, FL) -- first beer in the US after 3 years in the UK.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy light golden color with a large white head. The aroma was musty and yeasty with light hints of lemon and spice. The flavor was tangy citrus with a hint of cardboard and a trace of mustiness. The finish was moderately long tangy lemon.
