I picked this up, not realizing it was an AB product until I got it home. I figured the store would not take a return and after the batch of bad ZON I had, I figured I'd try it.
It poured a thick dark tan color and smelled of citrus. I looked in the bottle and could see a large ring of white stuff clumped in the bottom. Doesn't say that it was bottle conditioned, so I was getting scared. It says unfiltered, but come on.
I took a small sip and expected something overpouring and bitter, but it wasn't. The fruitiness is a bit more than it should be, but the wheat taste came through.
I would have liked a bit more creaminess on the tongue and less fruitiness, but otherwise I definitely would prefer this to Blue Moon if I am buying beer at a hockey game with only mega-brews on tap.
Also, for the current $2.50 price difference between this and most other 6-packs of wits, this is the one to share with someone that hasn't developed a taste for wheat beers.

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.
