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.

Beer is a nice cloudy, golden yellow in color with a creamy-colored head. Decent head retention.

Beer has a clean, floral, and spicy aroma. Very prominent orange aroma.

Has a very clear orange flavor that fades rather quickly. Nice balance of spice and fruit, although, the favor does not last very long and does noy linger in your mouth at all. Taste fits a mediocre belgian white ale.

Has a light to medium body mouthfeel and is quite smooth. Decently carbonated but a slightly watered down feeling.

It is a much lighter version of a white ale. About the quality that I have come to expect from the Anheuser-Busch company; better than most really cheap beers but can't really hold its own against others in its style. I would have another but it would not be my beer of choice. I would recommend this to someone who is used to really light bodied beers and would like to transition into heavier styles.

This is a great summer beer. Pour a fine orange and golden color. Somewhat cloudy, but it has a fine aroma of oranges and wheat. It's flavor is strong citrus note but very easy to drink. The tart initial flavor of orange and lemon is followed by a light wheat aftertaste.

Had this at a Premium Outlet bar in the Pocono's while the wife shopped. Bar- the log cabin bar and grill- only had 5 beers on tap, so we know why I chose this. Pint glass... Light orange look, less than a finger head, no lacing... Smelled completely of orange and tasted similar. Lots of carbonation made for a light taste... Might be good on a hot day in the sun, but otherwise another rank and file masquerading as a craft.
