Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bitterbill on 12-04-2007

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.

Great wheat beer. More suited to casual drinking with friends in the alley than with a meal.

A buy from time to time

The description provided says it all. The citrus flavors aren't overwhelming. Light feel to it. Would be bothered to have it again.

Get all preconceived notions out of your head before drinking....

Don't think about who it was made by
Don't view it as a crafty beer

Just drink. It's pretty refreshing! I would say on a blind test that it has an adjunct light base, but ramped up slightly with some depth and nicer mouthfeel. Looks pretty good too.

As long as this stays in the correct price range (lower end) it's a decent and tasty alternative to the piss filth Anheuser-Busch pumps out otherwise.

Cheers

Just a big cup of "meh". It's not bad, I wouldn't call it swill, but it's certainly not special or notable in any way.
