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.

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, it’s actually not bad and I found it pleasant overall.
