From a 12-ounce brown bottle, poured an opaque pale straw color. with a slight head. Fine bubbles, light-bodied, well-carbonated, with a slight citrusy aroma. Slightly sweet wheaty flavor, lingering spicey character and dry finish. natedoggkc (165) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 24, 2007
This one was a sample bottle from the AB rep. Was told that it was taking the place of the Spring Heat Spiced Wheat. It poured an opaque yellow with a full head. The spices and orange are definately present and wasn’t too bad. I think this will do well as an all year beer. Ron (4181) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2007
On tap at McGregor’s. Average white head and a decent citrus aroma. Flavor had some orange/lemon and alittle spice. Only slight sourness at end. Very good.jb (3407) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2007

Had one bottle after done staining the side of my house. Poured a large white head that died fast. Reg. unfiltered look of a wheat. Lively with bubbles. Aroma and flavor both had lemon,spices and some wheat. Very refreshing. I enjoyed it.
Always get snuck one AB product at every outing and this was no exception. This one was true to the style and enjoyable though. Heavy on the oranges in the nose. Hazy pale appearance, sour palate. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Tap at Molly MaGuries. Pours a cloudy, dull yellow with a lifeless head. Smells of faint citrus skunk. Average mouthfeel. Not bad; refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy, light yellow with hints of lemon peel and white grape in the nose. Blunt lemon and orange flavors, rounded out by a blend of other light, citrusy fruits. Average mouthfeel. Not bad; good bbq beer.
Sampled as the "new" Shock Top. 12 ounce bottle in Hoegaarden glass. Pale hazy yellow orange with white head. Minimal aroma of coriander. I guess I’m supposed to put an orange slice on top so I can’t tell that it has no aroma. Minimum possible honey sweetness matched with minimum possible citrus-orange followed by minimum possible coriander for minimum possible flavor. Maximum possible water flavor. Refreshing as a mountain stream in Belgium. Oh yeah, there are no mountains in Belgium. This is Bud’s answer to Coors’s Blue Moon in the competition to see who can make the worst Belgian-style white. Oh, but I’m told this one is cheaper. Bud wins again! Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2007
On tap at The Oak Cafe, 3-22-06. Hazy bright yellow, white head fades to ring after a few minutes. Aroma rather muted wheat and faint fruity esters. Flavor much the same, don’t understand where the spice in the name comes from, because I can’t get any in the beer. Tad thin for a wheat. SeizOne (32) - Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2007
I gotta give it up to Anheuser-Busch for there craft beers. I look foreword to this again when it comes out. HELL Yeah. Optigon (561) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Pours orange with a moderate head. Aroma is rather bland, standard wheat. Some citrus. Flavor is pretty citrus with some very minor spice qualities. Moderate mouth feel. RSRIZZO (2032) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Had on 6/6/2007. Aroma is a nice lemon scent. Color is a hazy yellow with good carbonation and a nice white head. Taste is peppery and light. Starting with a light body it goes down easy with a crisp feel. Finish comes out well with a peppery citrus flavor and a faint bitterness, then ends with a lemon/coriander taste.
