2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
TAP: fairly weak attempt at a Belgian White by a brewer who shoudnít be attempting such things (apparently). Light orange pour, hazy, white head. Very mild wheat and citrus on the nose and taste. Flat and boring, even as compared to Blue Moon.

On tap at Burrito Bar in Brooklyn. Mango coloured body with thin white head. Nose of fruits, sort of. Taste is very watery, only slight notes of fruits, including orange, mango and peaches. Dodgy. Didnít finish.

another failed attempt at a macro to try to recreate the taste or at least appeal of these wonderful micro/craft brewed beers. boring pour, a little hint of spice...perfect drain pour.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
If I was a 15-year-old girl, Iíd be like, "OMG WTF is this?" Actually, if I was a 15-year-old girl, Iíd probably like this beer, because it seems that thatís the basic demographic that goes for this stuff. It sucks when you go to an event and they have a "craft" tap and as you make your way through the crowd waiting to see what it is, you say to yourself, "Please donít be Shock Top, please donít be Shock Top." and then...itís Blue Moon. Or Shock Top. Give me a break. Anyway, this pours cloudy yellow with a small white head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is wheat, citrus, banana, and yeast. Sort of generic. Flavor is very generic with wheat, lemon, orange, banana, and bubblegum. Very uninspiring. Palate is light and annoyingly harsh and acidic. This beer is a donkey punch to the face of Belgium by Anheuser-Busch. Just donít drink it unless you have to.

Would someone please tell the Macro companies not to try and be "hip" or "try and be Micro"!!!! this is a shining example of why the macros have absolutely no idea what good beer should be. No flavor besides the actual orange in my glass, way too acidic and no aftertaste, would rather lick wallpaper glue.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
On draught at National Airport in DC.
Cloudy orange with a solid white head that doesnít budge and inch over 10 minutes.
Aroma of citrus and skunks.
Very sour, unpleasantly so, with an extreme acidic finish.
Light bodied for the style.
Best skipped. Nothing remarkable about this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at blind tasting 5/09. Pours translucent gold, with little head. Nothing really in the way of aroma that I could pick out. Sweet, then a mild bitter finish. Flat, light bodied beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample at the Smugglers Notch BrewFest - Poured a hazy straw yellow in color with a bright white head. Over carbonated. Aroma is faintly citrus with some wheat and a hint of banana. Flavor is not at all very strong and the flavors are washed out. Very little of anything distinctive. Not very good...

Not bad for a major brand beer. The aroma is nice and or oranges, the appearance is a honey gold, with a thin white head. The taste is ok but I have had better in a whit. Over all not to bad
