I have to admit to being surprised about how people have rated this beer, being one I've always really, really disliked.

I don't consider myself a beer snob by any means at all, but I can't really think of many other macro beers more offensive than this one. I've seen it listed in menus at bars as "Trix beer". This is because it really does sort of taste like eating Trix cereal.

It's really, really fruity. And fizzy. Girls do love it, though. I can attest from experience that it is an excellent beer for introducing girls who "don't like beer" to something other than BMC lite beers.

I certainly would never have even thought to call it a "white beer," though. It tastes like nothing else I've ever had before or want to have again. As one of the Alstrom bros said in his review, perhaps this is an "American white," but I hope not. It's not a Belgian white. Belgian white's don't taste like Trix.
