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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed on tap at Sunday River in Maine. Figured it was a good time to try this as the tap list was a little weak. A 1/4 inch of head fades immediately. Cloudy straw/light amber color.

Aroma was actually unpleasant. The wheat/yeast aroma was a little like a stinky cheese. The beer clearly isn't bad and tasted fine. Just not a fan of the aroma.

Pretty darn fruity with a nice wheat bready flavor. Reminds me of children's aspirin with the slightly artificial orange flavor. But I like that taste so that's not all that bad. Slight bitterness lingers at the end.

Very effervescent carbonation and mouth feel. Very light body.

Truth be told, not bad. Just not very complex. I could drink 4 of these like water. Drinkable - yes... Exciting... No

Serving type: on-tap

2.96/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a cloudy yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to pretty much nothing

S: A bit of citrus and spices with a wheat backbone. A bit simple, and a little too much of what I can only describe as a sports bar stink... weird

T: Definitely wheat-forward with quite a bit of the orange peel and a bit of the coriander and spices. Not too much else

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A bit chalky

O: A very mediocre witbier which is pretty much what you'd expect from AB. Decently drinkable, but could get a little cloying after a few
