0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Draft - sample provided by a bartender who "knew I liked good beer and had to try this". Aroma is a bit odd, but not terrible. Flavor was a sour-putrid mix of weird flavors. I guess A-B wants to compete agianst Hooegarden and Blue Moon. Try again douchebags.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Pours a very cloudy gold with a nice head. Very nice aroma of citrus with a touch of coriander. Drinks smooth and has a nice finish. Not your usual pisswater from A-B.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
An interesting beer from the World’s largest macro brewer. A 12-oz bottle shared by JK, this pours a hazy yellow gold brew with a thick white head that dissappears quickly to a film topping. A bit fizzy in appearance. Aroma is like a orange dreamsicle with oranges, vanilla and a hint of coriander. Taste is very carbonated, a wheat dryness but somewhate watery. Nice try from a very large macro brewer but no immediate cigars for celebration.

Bottle. Wow, suprisingly good when you consider the source. While I’d prefer Blue Moon, AB certainly has found something they’re good at (if only they’d put more effort in their other beers). Nothing overly special for a beer drinker, but it is very drinkable and pretty smooth with no nasty aftertaste like you might get from Bud or Busch.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Simply BAD beer. Well since I have several characters left let’s talk (write) about how and why it is so bad. First the positives; it looked like a decent unfiltered wheat, good head, and felt OK on the palate. The taste was horrible. Poured-it-down-the-drain horrible. So bad the person who bought it for our beer swap is now on double secret probation (shhh it’s a secret).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hit. A very good effort by AB. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nice aroma of orange and lemon. A lot of carbonation on the palate. Tasty citrus flavor with some underlying spice. Finishes very smooth. Almost as good as Blue Moon.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. I didn’t think it was very cloudy. This beer had lots of carbination, but not a lot of taste. I prefer Bluemoon with a twist of orange.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This Blue Moon knockoff was completely and successfully average. It tasted like someone took a sixer of Blue Moon or any other identical mass-produced Belgian-style wit and mixed it with water to stretch it out for an entire party. Nose of oranges and some winter spices (coriander and clove). Flavor was extremely understated, very watered down and drinkable. More wit flavors (citrusy, wheaty, spicy), but all really boring in general. Very thin body, especially as it warmed. A better beer than typical Bud, but still a ways to go to reach decent beer status.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looked nice in the glass with a decent head and nice lacing. Standard wheat look with a lemon yellow haze. Distinct lemon flavor throughout the glass. Pleasant but nothing outstanding about it. No aftertaste or bitterness.
