2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the jet Rock Bar at the PHL airport, in lieu of Hoegaarden. Not bad, but then again, not the nuances of flavour of a yeasty Hoegaarden.

Had this on tap at Hard Rock Cafe Sacramento. I was surprised to find it was made by AB. This was a pretty good beer! Maybe InBev was the best thing to happen to AB. Bartender floated an orange in it to bring out a more hefe quality. Not bad, InBev!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. The head is fizzy and disapates quickly. Has musty orange odor. Flavor is a citrusy sweet lagerlike. Ikay finish. Light bodied. Decent carbination. It is a copy of Blue Moon. Makes people think they drink craft beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a murky orange-yellow color with a very big, white head. Aroma is a very pungent orange with some wheat background and some light coriander. Flavor begins with an orange citrus note and moves into a light, watery wheat presence with not much else there. Overall, if it looks like an orange, smells like an orange and tastes like an orange, then it must be AB’s Shock Top because even an orange isn’t this orange.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours milky yellow with a 3 finger foamy white head that fades pretty quickly to a skim and holds pretty well. Aroma is weak orange juice, sour grain and vegetal notes. Flavor is much the same, though the vegetal notes are stronger. One of the worst belgian whites I have ever had.

~Pours a non uniformed cloudy orange color with quick disappearing head.
~Scent of oranges. Similar to a watered down orange juice with wheat.
~Wheaty orange flavor. A little too much orange. Almost like a candy orange.
~Medium to creamy feel. Strange lingering aftertaste like frozen concentrated orange juice.
~Decent summer brew. Just a little orangy for my liking.

Tap. Pours orangish and had an orange in it. This is A-B’s attempt at Blue Moon. WHile it is drinkable it is just too sweet and bland for my palate. While I commend A-B for thinking outside the box, this one doesn’t quite make the grade.

These Bud specialties all sound better then they are. Another crappy attempt a micro-brew, this time it’s a boring White, but everyone of these attempts turns out the same way, boring version of the beer they attempted.

Free sample at whole goods. Pours a hazy slight yellow with hardly any head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Taste is wheaty with very light citrus notes and coriander. Thin, fizzy and watery mouthfeel.

A thoroughly mediocre brew hardly worth investing the time to describe. A waste of money - not a taste of honey.
