2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (February 2008), served at cellar temperature from a Duvel glass. The thick pure-white head fills half of the part of the glass not taken up by the opaque golden liquid; it doesn’t lace at all and decays quickly....pale/pils malts evident in the nose, hint of spicing, not unpleasant but nothing to get excited about either.....on the tongue, reasonably close to what it’s mimicing, with a decent blend of sweet-tart orange and sourdough characteristics, a bit of coriander, perhaps a touch of ginger....too sweet, a bit too strongly carbonated and too thin and watery, but really quite drinkable and not in the least offensive; might be A-B’s best beer now, certainly the first one I can remember thinking that I actually wouldn’t mind drinking again. For free, anyway.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looks and smells like a nice Witbier but is very, very bland. Basically tastes like a touch of OJ was added to Bud light. not pleasing at all.
Pours an orangy-straw colour and has a crisp citrus nose. very faint sourness to taste, slightly sweet. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation and a short, slightly bitter finish end this, none too soon.

Light body. Oily-to-thin texture. Lively-to-fizzy carbonation. Abrupt, somewhat fruity finish. (Feel - 2.75)
It’s funny how I used to like this beer. But I also put an orange in there and we all know that you can never trust a beer that needs fruit added to it. (Overall -

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Citrusy lemon aroma on top of a wheat base. Bit of a cheapness to the base beer, but not terrible. This is a wouldn’t buy beer, but could drink if free. That is my mark for a 3 rating generally. Under 3 I wouldn’t drink again even if free. But there is a bit more flavor to this than many Budweiser beers, but I just can’t get it up to a 3. A bit of a cardboard finish drops it a bit. So nothing great, but drinkable, if given no other options. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska i LA. Ljusgul med lite skum. Luktar som konstigt fruktgodis. Smakar som en fruktig dåligt gjord veteöl.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy golden orange beer with a small white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, wheat, grain and bread. Flavor is malty with notes of citrus, bread, spices and oranges. Hmm, pretty boring.
