Had it half frozen in a frosted mug on tap at Applebee’s. No head by the time I got it. Completely opaque and yellow. An interesting looking beer. Aroma is fruity, orange and cirrus mostly with a hint of hops. Taste is really nice for a mainstream beer. Fruity and refreshing with a hint of hops at the finish. Think summer shandy without the specific lemonade taste. Not complex at all but still a good beer. Would definitely get this again in a pinch.

The smell is fruity and nutty, a bit earthy as well. The head is minimal and the body is golden with a distinct haze. It has a fruity taste and is excellent on palate.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Sometimes I have a craving for this beer. Any other times it’s IPAs , stouts ect. Once in awhile it’s satisfying.

Color anaranjado, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente efervescente. Aroma a naranja, especias (cilantro, básicamente), grano y ligeros toques como de perfume. Sabor a naranja y cilantro, con ese toque de perfume que está en aroma más remarcado. Postgusto escaso. Se puede beber pero no me aporta demasiado.

Bottle at a wedding. Can’t believe I’ve never rated this. Hazy orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, orange, coriander and slight esters. Orange, malt and coriander flavor with a refreshing orange finish. Let the macro haters dis this one all they want; as someone who doesn’t like a strong banana yeast character in Belgian styles and enjoys witbiers that offer a healthy amount of orange and coriander, this one is for me.

At Glacier Grill & Pizza, Coram. Served with an orange slice on the glass rim, a habit that has struck me in the U.S. to which I cannot get used. Pours cloudy yellow with a diminishing, foamy, white head. The aroma has orange peel, citrus, wheat, some light banana and dough. It tastes light sour, very light bitter and medium sweet with lingering orange in the finish. Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Not that good.

A good beer that one could find almost as commonly as a bud light or equivalent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from a small supermaket in Paddington, London. Misty golden body, small fizzy white head. Sweet caramel and banana smell and flavor. Whatever wit character it was brewed with is long gone. Not a great beer.

Cítrica en nariz y compleja en boca, con anís, naranja y clavo. Especiada y muy original. Muy recomendable.

Some of the ’hard’ raters should really try this one from the tap. Just the right amount of citrus, not overbearing. Topped with an orange slice to enhance the aroma. Definitely a crafted ale. Smooth, Effective, and a personal go to favorite at local bars. Highly recommended.
