3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Been hanging out a lot lately with a couple of macro drinking friends, so here we are. I did introduce one of my friends, who’s former favorite beer was Shock Top, to Hoegaarden, which he likes better. That’s a win. Unfortunately the all you can eat chicken wing place didn’t see fit to have Hoegaarden on tap, so we got this instead. It’s not great by any means, but it’s better than Blue Moon by a country mile, so that’s something. Smells like any other beer of this style, thankfully I didn’t pick up any off aromas or flavors. Pretty crisp and clean for what it was.

Very faintly fruity nose, a very slight spiciness. Pours a cloudy orange. Not much flavor. A pleasant body, but a bit of wateriness and staleness. Overall, there are many better Belgian wits.

Free sample Busch Gardens FL. Smells of wheat and oranges (had an orange slice stuck on the glass. Tried it again out of a 16 oz can into a frosted mug. Pretty much Budweiser with a more mellow refined taste. Used to be expensive but I can pick this up at the store 2 houses down from my front door for 2 for 3$ for a 16 oz can. When your average commercial beer is sitting next to it at the same price, obviously this is better choice!!

For AB it’s surprisingly decent. For beer in general this is an abomination. Go mass marketing!

Wheaty orange peel aroma. Pours with a cloudy orange hue with no head. Well carbonated. Bitter orange flavour with lingering bitterness in the finish.

Seul point positif, elle a l’air d’une blanche. Meilleure provenant du fût que de la bouteille. Ça goûte le carton ou la levure pas fraîche, si vous voulez...

I’m not even going to bother mentioning how or into what this beer was poured because if I had something to drink instead I would pour it directly into the drain of my sink (but since I don’t and I’m an alcoholic I will drink it).
My first impression was "this tastes like an orange budweiser" even the after taste is the same as a bud, then I looked it up and low and behold it’s made by bud. This reminds me of the bud light wheat beer (that I also only bought once) but without coriander.
The thing that disappoints my most about this purchase is that for the same money I could have gotten Blue Moon, at least that has some taste and character. Thanks for nothing bud.

Sampled at Moxies in Abbotsford. Pours a medium white creamy head atop deep fake orange. Nose of wheat and citrus. Fairly bland and lemony. The orange slice served with the beer was somewhat tastier than the beer.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 Pours a cloudy straw colour with ok head that fades with no lace. There is a strong orange flavour with a lemon citrus. Coriander is a strong flavour, but not as strong as i thought it would be. After taste is a grainy.
