3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On Draft, from a huge goblet that was reasonably cheap. Poured a somewhat hazy yellow, with minimal head. Aroma was not much; but good, with some wheat and spice. Flavor was much of the same; not mindblowing, but tasty and easy drinking. Was shocked a bit to taste some spice. Pretty good considering the maker.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. single bottle, from Vons. Pours a cloudy honey color, with a large whitish head that leaves a bit of stringy lace. nice wheaty aroma, bready, citrus fruits, clover and light spice. Sweet and grainy, with obvious citrus notes and a spiciness that tastes almost, but not entirely like, coriander, some herbiness and floral notes. Medium body, gently crisp carbonation. Despite the fact that this is an Anheuser Busch product, itís actually not bad and I found it pleasant overall.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Hy-Vee poured into tumbler - Pours cloudy gold with a 2 finger white head that fizzled out quickly; Tomato, CORIANDER (a little much), clove, and orange to the nose; Wheat, a little orange, coriander and clove on the initial taste; Herbal wheat aftertaste; A little watery on the body; Good carbonation; Like most of ABís "craft" efforts, this beer takes one flavor and runs wild with it. If they would tone down the coriander a lot, this would be a pretty decent wit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours an opaque lemon-yellow with a lasting white head. Nose is all citrus with its lemon, lime and orange melting together in the guise of Fruity Pebbles. Flavor shows the fruit in submission to its wheat base. A/B probably could have avoided using any hops whatsoever since the Cascade blends with the citrics and the Hallertau is simply totally covered. They could have a dash of Angostura to add that subtle touch of bitterness. A mild nuttiness emerges late. Palate is a little creamy, a little watery & a little spicy. Itís really not bad and it should compete well with Lenieís Berry Weiss in the "cheap & fruity summer beer" category.

Definetly a sweet finish. I donít know about the label everyone complains about. It got my wife to buy the beer, and thatís how I tried it. I was impressed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pretty good complex citrusy aroma. Light yellow in color with a decent sweet malt flavor and notes of coriander and some hops. What i really like is the lemon and lime flavors in this which i havent had in a wit before, usually just the standard orange. I quite liked the complex spicy citrusy flavor profile. Light and citrusy and a little creamy but with a crisp finish. Wouldnt buy this regularly but i think its definitely a good summer refreshing beer. Noticed this was anheuser-busch after i drank it. Best AB beer i have had.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
perfect for spring/summer days or nights with the strong orange taste in every sip. cloudy in color thanks to anheuser-busch actually triying to make something so run of the mill. its a good effort, this hefe lacks that familar clove or banana from the wheat and is a little watery but sweet and fruity in flavor none the less.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2007 I donít care who made it. Iím not "sophisticated" enough to discount a tasty, drinkable beer because it wasnít made in small batches by blind/mute monks. Loads of orange peel and coriander. I prefer this to Blue Moon.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of spice and a little bit of yeast. Tastes of coriander, citrus, and grains. Decent spicy flavor up front, but more of a grainy and sour aftertaste. Relatively light body with high carbonation. Itís OK, but I would still drink a Blue Moon before this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one shocked me. Starts with a strong aroma of citrus and spice, and pours a cloudy light yellow with a quickly fading head. Flavor is a bit too strong on the lemon/lime tastes, and has a bit too much carbonation for my preference. Not something Iíll buy again, but I will say Iím amazed this is from A-B.
