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.

Orange Juice infused beer.

Not a bad drink, but not something I would want all the time. More of a summer time brew.

Looks nice enough, it is a cloudy orange yellow color. The taste is mostly of orange citrus.


I think I like Blue Moon and Bud Light Golden Wheat better.

Pours a clear, straw colored body with a foamy white head.

Smells a bit bready and grainy. A small bit of orange and lemon peel. Aroma isnt too bad.

Taste is pretty much just breads and grains with some orange zest and a very stale finish.

Light-medium bodied, good carbonation but leaves a stale aftertaste and not much else. Kinda hard to have more than 1-2 of these.

Overall not a beer worth paying for. Plenty of other good witbier's out there worth your money. With the staleness of this beer, it just falls short of a decent brew.

This is a beer worth drinking, and one I'd probably like more if I had it more. It looked and smelled better than it tasted. Nice rich color and a good head. Smell was a little fruity but mostly malty and rich. It just tasted plain and empty. There was some good bitterness and the wheat taste was obvious but it wasn't rich or all that impressive. This is, I guess, supposed to be served with an orange wedge, which I didn't have. I can see how that would have helped, but in my opinion beer shouldn't need outside help. It felt pretty dang normal, medium bodied. Worth having, but not impressed.
