3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2007 12 oz single:
hazy yellow beer, with a smallish pure white bubbly head.
Quite a nice citrus fruit aroma, mainlly orange, hints of coriander.
Flavour is strange, at first it reminded me a lot of a powder based soft drink I used to get as a kid in Scotland called "Creamola" its soft orange and vanilla, light spice.
Light ,soft carbonation anda n almost creamy mouthfeel make this a pleasant if not strange drink.
Actually not that bad a expierience.

Malty and floral aroma. Pours a cloudy, fizzy yellow color. Very watered down taste. Light carbonation on the finish.

For an A-B it actually not too bad, but as a Witbier its a sub-standard. Aroma is noticeable with spices and tropical fruit malts and spices taste artificial like Sunny D. The body is medium and it lingers well after. Drink it cold.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 Oh yes, the packaging is good. Micro brew style label and you only ID it as AB if you look close. 12 oz brown bottle with a twist off cap. Remove the cap for a sour citrus aroma mixed with yeasty wheat. The pour is very nice, even with a layer of yeast down in the bottom. Roll the last bit gently around and you can utilize it. Very pretty light beige yellow appearance. Nice streams of carbonation continue from within. The taste is absolutely wheatlike, but may be more like a good hefe rather than a wit. It is clean and fresh without any sign of offensive bitterness at all. The carbonation seems just right for this style, tingling as it rolls down the back of your throat. I think this is on par with the flavors of Hogaarden, Pax and Wittekirk, just not quite as refined. There is an added spice there but it is not overwhelming. Compared to HP&W, Hogaarden and Wittekirke do the honors without the additional flavors. The finish is friendly and well behaved, a perfect gentleman when it comes to manners. I add this to my list of beers I’d buy again, gimmie another.

This is good beer, but weak for the style. Still good. on tap at Eat at Joe’s. Little spice with orange fruit.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is light butter biscuits with fresh and stewed fruit. Color and transparency are like dilute orange juice. Lousy label and orangehead guy. Citrus zest, light black pepper, lightly sweet, lightly hopped. Needs a wedge. Light body, but not flaccid.

This draft brew poured a foamy white long lasting head of finely sized bubbles. It had a yeasty maly hop banana aroma. The body was a dark yellow color with average carbonation and was very hazy. The Mouth feel was tingly with a metallic start that later mellowed in its finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops fruit and banana.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 On tap at Eppley Airfield North Hangar Bar. The first thing I noticed about this beer was the eye-catching tap handle. Pours a cloudy dense yellow with an amazingly significant thick white head for an AB product. Has a detectable citrus orange aroma, but the flavor does not keep up. Typical thin body from the hidden adjuncts. Orange artificial flavors abound to the taste. Drinkable, but not worth the wait and poor measure from a bartender used to pouring much flatter beers.

this was the 2nd best A-B beer that i have had. not offensive at all, which is true to A-B. i don’t like wheats that much, but it had a light spice flavor. coriander or something like that, it was too light to tell. i got it for free srom a patient so i thought that i would try it.
