3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very hazy golden coloured body with a light orange colour and a very thin frothy white head. Aroma of pungent spice, curacao, wheat, yeast, oranges, lemons and coriander seed - a very nice smell and not macro smelling at all. Medium-bodied; Spicey flavour, almost too much so with a good curacao and coriander seed taste along with a potent wheatyness as well. Aftertaste shows a bunch more spicey characters, along with some lemon and sweet kicks as well. Overall, a decent and fairly good beer - odd for me to say for an AB product. Iíd try this again, and it wasnít as nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Normís in Vienna, Virginia on 29-April-2007.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 On Tap at the Bull Run Inn. Had a sample of this, but decided against a pint. The sample, although promising much from a Belgian wit, was overpowered by the spice. Reminded me of David Lynchís "Dune". I donít think I could stomach a lot of this beer, maybe a glass.

tap at the hole behind my place. well, i really wanted to dislike this, i was ready to tear into it, but it ainít half bad. murky orangish body with a thisck head. smell is roasty/burnt lemons, something from an indian restaurant(fuck i donít know) taste was a bit too bitter to go with the other lighter fruit andstrong sweetness donít mix well with the citrus notes. in the back of my throat i got a weird burnt note occasionally, but it wasnít too, bad to the point i stopped drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the brewery in St Louis. Maybe that affected my judgement, but I enjoyed this beer. Light and citrusy. Hint of cinnamon. Really, not bad.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with thin white head. The aroma is lemonade and hair conditioner. The flavor is also lemonade, maybe a little blueberry. Sharp acidity comes out in the middle, and a warm fruitiness in the finish. Inoffensive, at least.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Eh. Too sweet for me, with orangey lemon flavors, off set with a bit of cinnamon. Not bad, but nothing Iíd get again. Hell, it was pretty much what I expected, so I wouldnít have gotten it the first time if it hadnít beent the only thing on the shelf at Food City that I hadnít already tried.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprisingly pleasant. I know who makes it, and I hear they are trying to compete with Blue Moon. BM is better. Citrus and wheat in the aroma. cloudy yellow, and a sweet flavor that includes more wheat and light spices with a touch of sour citrus. Perhaps ABís best product.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy light yellowish golden with a white head. Aroma is light and refreshing with banana, citrus, and spices. Flavor has some spice and citrus taste but not much and the finish is unimpressive with a watery like consistency. Overall while the aroma is decent the flavor is only ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a very nice and some floaties. Nose is very citric and clean, typical wit. Flavor was very nice, creamy lemony that was tempered by the orange. Did I say lemony? Pleasantly puckering. I was impressed since this was an AB production. A very nice brew that I would have again especially on a hot summer day.

It was ok. I do love my White Aleís and this was close to one. The spiced flavor wasnít too bad, it just seemed to be lacking a tad. I prefered the Cask Ale that A-B marketed at Xmas.
