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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 32 oz mug, coded freshness date.

a: hazy golden, head quickly fades with no lacing 2/5

s: hint of fruitiness, spices 3/5

t: taste just like it smells, with nothing added. Not very textural, and nothing lingers beyond a swallow. Very mediocre. 3/5

m: Very light with alot of carbonation. 2.5/5

o: This just feels like it should be called Bug Light with Orange. There is nothing here to set it apart from the mass produced beers. If your other options are the usual selection of macro beers, then this would be another choice, but, even then, there is nothing special here. I got a sixer of these, downed them within 2 hours, and I doubt I'll go back to it unless I'm buying something quickly at a small service station. 2.5/5

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.

Hazy dark gold, med off-white head steadily shrinks to foamy ring and wisps, no lace.

Aroma is nice full grain, hitns of spice (coriander), mild orange hint. It is faintly soapy in a way that seems fairly common with a lot of very low-grade witbiers, but is decent.

Taste is pleasant, light but full grain with hitn of coriander, mineral, and vague light citrusy zest and a lightly doughy finish. It is slightly on the sweet side. It has a pretty good feel, slightly oily yet lively. It is reasonably enjoyable if very basic and a bit crude.
