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 into a pint glass. A hazy golden color with a half finger of head that was completely gone within 45 seconds.

Smells of honey and metal, but only faintly overall.

Tastes like water, mildly orange and bitter.

Light body, higher carbonation.

It's not offensive because it doesn't taste or smell like anything. I'm curious which spices it was brewed with because none of them come through.

Overall the high carbonation and the attention to sweet orange flavor and not true citrus orange flavor make this beer more akin to a soda that a beer, let alone a Belgian Witbier style. It pours just fine but the lack of pleasant aromas and the sweetness make this not very drinkable. I would rather have either a soda or a beer, but not a sodabeer.
