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.
Poured from bottle into glass at home.
Look: Pours straw gold in color, moderately hazy with large white head. The head disappears faster than expected and
Smell: Smells of orange peel, coriander and wheat. No hoppy aroma.
Taste: Flavor of orange, spice, wheat and vanilla. No detectable hop flavor. No detectable alcohol flavor. Quite sweet and zero bitterness.
Feel: Smooth body. Full finish. Medium high carbonation.
Overall: This beer is inoffensive but uninteresting. The classic orange and coriander flavor characteristic of wits is turned up and the only flavors detectable. The sweetness is cloying and makes it so even though it is easy to drink, I do not want to reach for another. MacBoost (1959) - Victor, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2018
12oz bottle chugged in a few seconds. It was pretty mediocre. Aromas of clove. Slightly sweet and slightly tangy. Meh. I would never drink this again unless it was free, which this bottle was. shawnmurphy (667) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours hazy yellow-orange with no head or lacing. Aroma: honey, orange, pineapple. Flavor: honey, Wonder Bread, overripe orange, coriander, some barnyard. Mouthfeel: light-bodied, prickly finish from carbonation. WBlankenship21 (9) - - NOV 19, 2017 does not count
Light, crisp, and clean. Nothing overpowering. A very easygoing beer. A Sunday brunch supper, in my humble opinion. Hints of citrus and light hoppy finish.

From Jan 2008
I bought this locally.
This pours from 12oz bottle a cloudy yellow-gold with a huge head of foam.
The smell is of fruit, yeast, and wheat but it's light on the nose.
The taste has notes of some citrus lemon, wheat, and a bit of a metallic flavour but again, they are lightly done. Too lightly done. It was born on Dec 7th so it *is* fresh. Hmm. The body is light, the carbonation is high, and it finishes..well..it finishes like a Bud only more watery. Give me a Leinie Sunset Wheat or Blue Moon Belgian White over this any day because they have a lot more flavour going for them.
Edit: I thought I'd try another bottle right after the first and I *did* notice some spice this time but it didn't help too much with my overall rating for it.(taste went from 2.5 to 3.0)

Can. Cloudy yellow body with big soapy head, poor retention and no lacing. Aroma of grains, coriander, citrus, banana and yeast. Taste of wheat, somewhat strong chemical citrus flavors, coriander and some wet grains. Bad. scarpin (74) - Moorhead, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2017 Cerveja refrescante e muito saborosa. Ótima para dias quentes. Tomei com petisco de frango e casou muito bem. higgsbison (275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Taste like a Lemon pissed in a light beer.
Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow, white head. Aroma is wheat, lemon, clove. Flavor is wheat, clove and citrus. There are a lot of better examples of this style. Stay Away. tess5456 (1) - - SEP 2, 2017 does not count
