Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bitterbill on 12-04-2007

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.

OH MY GOD! What crap for beer especially trying to pawn itself of as a belgium white! Totally worthless tasted terrible! Bitter aftertaste! Couldn't even finish! Don't waste your money! Sorry Anhauser-Bush just stick to Bud, Bud Light, and Michelob!

Bottled/best by: unk

pours an off brilliant clarity witbier (WTF?!) with little head formation. Nose is sweet and wheat - some belgian yeast tones and a little floral character. Pretty sweet and artificial in the nose. Flavor is, again, sweet with some flowers and sharp, um, hot dog flavors. This weiner note follows through into the finish and dissappoints my life. Water bodied (for the style) and moderate carb, this doesn't match style at all.

This beer is shite from a crafted standpoint.

poured into a Guinness pint glass
medium carbonation, artificial it appears

this is not a Belgian Ale, and resembles a repackaged budweiser, amber malts nonexistant,
orange ? some artificial additive to taste like an orange.
remainder poured down the drain.

I tried shock top because I heard it was all the rave. Then I found it was made by Bud, strike one. I drank 5 of them and had to choke them down, it had a very strong orange taste to it which actually is sickening. Bud is trying to get into the micro brew market but they cant because they simply cannot amke a decent beer.

It looked like beer. It had some words on the label that implied that it was of a variety that I might like. Alas, the flavor was dilute, it had a a hint of artificial citrus flavor, and weak malt extract flavor. The composite flavors held together, but they didn't amount to much.
