   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Ernest (7033) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Draught. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with notes of orange, lime, and coriander. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation. Overly spiced, but ok.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 At least I knew this beer was an A-B product prior to my single bottle purchase, dare I serve this in my Hoegaarden tumbler? Ah what the heck...Well the beer pours quite traditionally with a cloudy pale golden hue topped by a fading fizzy head and some lace. The aroma is quite nice actually with notes of orange peel, lime leaves, coriander, wheat husk, and some grassy vapours. The taste is a bit of a let down from the nose but is hardly bad either with a forefront of citrus and mild spices finishing off with a quick dash of bitterness. If this was slightly less sweet and a tad more tart it would ...dare I say...rock?!?! If I had a choice between the two mass produce macro witbiers, I would easily take this over Coors Blue Moon. Easily one the best effort from A-B I ever had.

obguthr (5094) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2007
UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 Lemon aroma. Color is cloudy light gold. The head was thin but long lasting. It tasted very grainy with lemon and slight hop flavor on the edges, not very balanced. It had a very funny onion and olive aftertaste. Despite the bizarre finish, it was quite delicious and endlessly drinkable. I had completely forgotten I rated this a year ago. My new rating is identical however. The beer really is pretty good.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 7/20
Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours a small, white, fizzy head that quickly diminishes. Color is a hazy light yellow typical of a wit but with a lot of bubbles rising (telegraphing it’s unusually fizzy palate). The aroma is of oranges, lemons and coriander. Very thin, watery and overly fizzy palate. This one tastes like Anheuser-Busch’s attempt at cloning Blue Moon, but they missed the mark.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 8/20
garrison (792) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2007
From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at "Kroger’s" in Cincinnati, Ohio - This one poured a hazey yellow brew without much aroma (it’s a sin for a hefe to not have the banana and cloves smell, imo) and a small white head of foam. Tastewise, it’s weak, watery, and just a very pale imitation of what a hefe should be!

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Tap. Unremarkable in every way. Not the worst offender in the world of pseudo-wit beers, however. At least it doesn’t taste like orange soda like a few others.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2007
pale cloudy yellow with thin head. Watery and thin. Lacks acids for that refreshing finish. Grainy body.
