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 standard pint glass.

Smell: Citrus, lemons and oranges, wheat, spices.

Taste: Citrus front with light hops and wheat taste, lemony and grassy. A bit watery, but good overall.

Mouthfeel: Heavy carbonation and light body, overall very crisp and refreshing.

Overall: A good beer and I am once again impressed by this A-B offering.

The appearance was a bit... dull.

The smell was wonderful.

The taste was very nice. I was surprised. 5 if you put an orange in it.

Mouthfeel was an average 3

Overall, I was impressed by this beer.

I took notes on my phone, so I'm not writing this as I drink it.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Really not that bad for a BMC product tryin to be a classic belgium style. But still has the mouthfeel of a watered down lager and the big slice of orange that i got with mine after asking for no orange did not help. Taste has some notes of wheat and good yeast because of being unfiltered but still not something that i recommend anyday.
