look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange gold with a big white head that recedes to about two inches and hangs around a bit.

Aroma: Smells of citrus, wheat, oranges and spices.

Taste: Now this is a terrific wheat beer. It's full of the signature flavors - citrus dominates, and there's no reason for a dippy orange slice. Just a really tasty wheat ale.

Mouthfeel: This is an area where this beer really excels. It's super smooth and a pleasure to drink. Great stuff.

Overall: Superb beer. I had a Blue Moon yesterday; comparing that to this is like comparing a second grade performance of Robin Hood to The Deer Hunter.

It is a very good, smooth beer, but not a heck of a lot of different flavors or aromas as other weissbier I've had.

Excellent aroma and appearance, but yuck, mine had way too much cloves or coriander. Couldn't even finish it, and I LOVE wheat beers.

Poured from a 12 oz into a weizen glass on 01.21.14.

A: Cloudy yeast at top. See through orange at bottom. 2 finger head.

S: Wheat, citrus. Orange.

T: Wheat, very light cloves from yeast.

M: Crisp, which is weird for a hef. More watery than I like.

O: This was pretty bland tasting. There was a tiny bit of sweet clove on the back end that helped a little to break the monotony of the watery mouthfeel. It was easy to drink and refreshing at least. Wondering why this was so bland, and suspicious of the lightweight and see through bottle, I found that this is owned by AB-InBev. Yep, I'm a newbie.
