3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Draft: Pours a cloudy straw color. Small white head. Not much of an aroma. Hint of citrus flavor. Watered down. Not a bad attempt from AB. Easy to drink in mass consumpton.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, courtesy of Swalden_28) Pours a cloudy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander, and light orange. Flavor of wheat, light citrus, and mild spices (maybe some coriander). Seems a bit watered down, but not unexpected either…

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy pale orange color. Aroma is wheaty and citrusy, but....it still smells like an A-B product. Tastes like a Belgian White. You can taste the wheat, and the orange flavors. Almost kind of orange-juice like, actually. It’s just kind of weak flavor-wise though. Like a normal wit, but muted. It is crisp, however. Not bad, but for a macro produced Belgian White, I’ll definitely stick to Blue Moon.

So, AB’s answer to Blue Moon. While not a bad wit, it just is not really worth seeking out. It is everything a wit should be, but dialed down by half. Textbook, but very bland and innocuous. There are a hundred non-descript brewpubs that would do this one better.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow, somewhat hazy appearance.Very wheaty aroma. The flavor is also wheaty, but weak. While the beer is moderately smooth, it’s not the smoothest wheat beer. Considering the competition out there, this beer isn’t the best wheat beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured large white head, which lasted a while. Aroma is of lemon-citrusy. Pale straw color, almost see-thru. Light mouth feel, with a taste of oranges and lemon. Nothing special, but it wasn’t all that bad. Will probably not seek again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Not bad. Has a nice aroma. Has a real nice hint of orange smell. Real mild taste. Worth at least one try.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw yellow, has no real head and no real carbonation - not a looker of a beer. Orange aroma mixed with a sweet bannana and cotton candy, smells better than it looks. Light tasting; water is dominant flavor, than an orange tonic and perhaps the rice that budweiser is known for. Palate is light and easy to drink a whole buch of these lightweights. Bottom line, a small step up from American mass consuption that AB is known for.
