look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Sold in a bottle that was "born-on" dated four months before purchase. Don't know how much that effected the taste this time. I have tried this beer before and it did seem a bit spicier then.
APP- Pours with a light amber colour, and a bit cloudy as well. A huge head that threatened to overtake the glass. Some sipping was in order to stave off the foam. A tiny no-no in my opinion. I want to taste the beer outright, at first sip.
SMELL- a light citrus smell. But it says right on the label, "made with Orange, Lemon, and Lime peels". Still not a strong smell. Just light and the hint of citrus.
TASTE- Clean, refreshing taste. The citrus really comes through clean. Although the fruits are not in an overabundance. As a session beer in summer this could do for a nice evening out with friends sitting on the balcony, or at an outside cafe'.
OVERALL DRINKABILITY- Possibly a good session beer for those who are inclined to citrus. Its not too sweet. Just light and refreshing. Think Wheat beer with lots of lemons and limes thrown in.
OVERALL- Not bad, really. I didn't expect much, and its easy to drink. Its not impressive, but perhaps that's the point. It doesn't try to be.

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
