The owner of a local beer bar gave this one to me. Labeled not for sale as a promotional item. I mean, it could be an okay step for those looking to make the transition to craft beers but this one was not a good Witbier. Cloudy and orangish, a bit grassy on the tongue and no spices that I recall.

This will probably not be a favorite A-B product based on the fact it won't entice macro fans or those who appreciate this style.

Tap at MJ Barleyhopper’s, Tampa.

Aroma held bannana, citrus and lots of spice. Cloudy yellow in color with a thumb thick white head that is mostly diminishing. Very smooth wheat malt in the fore...bannana followed by coriander and other spicy notes. Citrusy even without an orange added to it. Nice feel to it overall, but a tad thinner than most Witbiers. A decent attempt really.

had at a bar on tap

A- wow, this is the ugliest looking beer ive ever seen. the color was a dull yellow, worse than any macro ive ever seen. the head was white and lasted mabe 10 seconds

S- the name says spiced wheat? well it smelled like every other bud ive ever smelled

T- eeeh! on the front end there was the taste of budweiser, which isnt great to begin with. on the back end there was this faint hint of nutmeg, but it was awful. nasty grossness.

M- thinner than a coked-up runway model. carbonation is the reason why this didnt get a 1. making nastiness much more bubbly is a trademark of macros. long live craft beer!

D- quite possibly the worst beer ive ever had.

Pours out a lightly hazy orange/yellow. White head. Smell is spiced with corriander and seems a bit off, but cant put my nose on it. I'm really not a fan of the taste either. I'm not a witbier fan, but i can tell if its a good one or not. This one is not. Corriander is present in the taste as well, it pretty much dominates over some cinnoman and peppery spices, as well as some infused orange citris to it. But again, not good.

Overall this is just a bad stab at the style. Dont want to finish it. I dont know what it is, i always want to try the newest macro's attempt knowing i'm almost always dissappointed.

First of all, I do not dig on wheat beers in general. This beer poured light orange and hazy with no head. The taste is weak with not a whole lot going on. It definitely features the wheat but with limited success.

As my friend says, "It tastes like a weak Blue Moon."

Bingo.

This AB poduct was a pleasant surprise. It had a distinctive hazy yellow appearance, with a good white head and some lacing. A very tangy, fresh odor. The taste was mostly citrus, with a tiny bit of hops discernable. I think this would be a good beer for a hot summer day.

I tried this beer last night at my favorite watering hole (Summits in Sandy Springs). It pours into a barrel mug a very cloudy orange with about a 1/2 head that stays and produces good lacing. The color is very unusual that orange hue is unique for sure. The smell is of very tart and potent citrus, so strong that I can't detect anything else. The taste is nearly all citrus as well. The balance is off in this beer. I think they were trying for a Hefe or a Witbier but fell short. The taste (what I can taste beyond the citrus) comes off like wet cardboard. The wheat flavor just doesn't seem right. The mouthfeel isn't bad, it comes off as medium weight and very creamy. Overall this is not a very drinkable beer. I applaud AB for trying to branch out and try new things like Stouts, fruit beers, and the like but so far they just haven't measured up.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The beer appeared very bright yellow with a small white head. There was something about the color looked very un-natural. The smell was basicaly just citrus. The taste was very citrus-ish, with bit wheat flavor, and a bitter orangle peel aftertaste. The mouthfeel was more or less average, with moderate carbonation and low body. Overall this beer was easy to drink, but not a winner in my book.
