2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 Aroma is fruity, but overpowering. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Strong, overpowering carbonation. Flavor was a bit watery, very citrus. Overall not bad (especially for an Anheuser-Busch brew), but there are better whites out there.

on tap at AB brewery. All I have to say about this is that it is an obvious attempt at a blue moon clone (see my review of Bare Knuckle). Its not bad for an AB.

Had this beer on tap at a placed call Murphy’s in Mokena, IL. Beer was suprise as I though it was going to be garbage coming from AB. Pours hazy goldin orange with thin white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus and spices. Flavor is citrus and spices with some grain. Nice refreshing beer.

This one reminded me of blue moon. Poured a cloudy orange with a white head. Tastes of spices and orange. The flavors here are weak and don’t stand out much at all. This one also tastes watered down. Should also be sweeter in my opinion. Also has that stingy aftertaste. I could chug these though after a workout or when I’m really craving a beer.

Bottle, thanks to whom left it at our house. Pours a foggy yellow with a light yellow head. Very sweet and creamy. Would be good with an orange, very drinkable.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.
