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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a one-finger head, no lacing left on the 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: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A - strong pour brings out a large head that dissapates quickly, little lacing
S - nothing really , just beery
T - same as smell, a little bit orangey at the end
M - thin and watery
O - drinkable, but not very good, blue moon is much better if I want a shitty belgian white
