Notes/Commercial Description:
We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

2.3/5  rDev -22.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Served on-tap at a Chili's in Waterbury.

A: Poured a bright yellow with a weak hazy chill of what might be a wheat appearance. The head was thin and white and there was little to no retention.

S: Smell was very faint and acrid citrus and wheat with an artificial lemon squeeze in it.

T: Taste was not all that great. A liquid cool lemon flavor backed with some puny malts and no real hop bitterness. The wheat does come through somewhat, but in a thin, watered down way.

M: Mouthfeel is a bit sharp and stinging, either from artificial agents or the over-carbonation of the brew.

D: It wasn't exactly a chore to get through this one, but I told the bartender not to recommend it should anyone ask what it was. It's got a time and a place; hot outdoor summer function.

Described to me as Bud's version of Blue Moon, but came off more to me like a Hoeggarden trapped in a nightmare. If Anheuser-Busch wasn't selling enough of their In Heat Summer Wheat, they didn't have to try and fake us out with this shoddy re-branding.

Serving type: on-tap
