3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a pint glass. Nice cloudy yellowish-orange, like a good wheat beer. Overwhelmingly citrus aroma. What, this is from Anheuser-Busch? What’s more, is that a retentive head I see? Smooth lemon, orange and spice flavor. Wet mouthfeel is a bit of a downer. Little lacing, but the best I’ve seen of a macro-mini. A rather surprising and well-done effort from the folks at AB.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a cloudy lemon yellow color with a quickly diminished white fizzy head. Aroma is of light grains and citrus, particularly of lemon, with notes of spice and grass. Taste is of light grains and well blended grassy hops with a burst of citrus flavor in which the lemon is sublime. Light bodied and crisp with moderate carbonation. Ending is kind of watery with light spice and citrus notes.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Cloudy medium dull yellowish pour with 1-finger off-white head. Very citric aroma dna flavor, with a lot of lemongrass and orange zest, coupled with a solid sweetness from the malt. This is probably the best beer I’ve had from these guys, and one I’d much rather drink than blue moons wheat offering. Well done, guys.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This has a fine wit pour, a hazy pale straw body with a tall sustained head. The aroma is yeast with lemon scented dish soap. The hard carbonated body would be fine in a Pilsener, but is off the mark for this style, called on the label a "Belgian-style wheat ale." The flavor is wheat flakes with lemon, sour orange, and talcum powder. My dislike has little to do with it being an A-B product. I’d have to tell the braumeister at my favorite brewpub that it was off if he turned out mediocre crud like this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated 6/3/06: Interesting name got me intrigued during my night out with some friends, after a few stouts I wanted to end the night on a lighter note. This beer was served in a large glass. Fruity aroma with spicy notes it smelled wonderful. A nice vibrant yellow color with a splash of orange, there was a medium sized head that actually left decent lacing, strong carbonation rounded out a good appearance. Solid on the palate this wasn’t thin and a crisp finish really capped this one. The flavor is mild and good. Lots of citrus and spice flavors. Not top of the line but it was a good find on draft. Surprisingly enough I had no clue that this is brewed by Anheuser-Busch, hats off to expanding your horizons beyond undrinkable swill.
