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.

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.

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.

Bottle. Not bad. Has a nice aroma. Has a real nice hint of orange smell. Real mild taste. Worth at least one try.

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.

on tap Pours out a hazy straw color topped with a small white head. Aroma of light orange and a touch of yeast. Tast of a little spice and yeast. Just so so.

I picked up a 6 pack of this here in Dallas. This beer had a good smell of coriander, but it was quite faint. The taste of this Belgian white didn’t meet my expectations for one of my favorite styles. While the flavor is still good, the orange and spices aren’t as prevalent, but the wheat is quite nice. The beer wasn’t impressive on my palate and didn’t have enough body or carbonation. Overall this is my least favorite Belgian white I have tried to date.

I’m guessing this is Budweiser’s attempt to compete with Coors’ Blue Moon. Whereas Blue Moon almost goes overkill with the coriander and orange, this beer is too timid. The wheat character is awesome (even after tasting much bigger beers earlier in the night) but the spicing is nearly nonexistant. This ends up being just another American wheat beer.

had on tap at Wahoo’s Fish Taco in Palo Alto. I didn’t like it even before I knew if was from Anheuser-Busch. Coors’ Blue Moon is much much better.
