I love Red Racer, and their Red ale and IPA are two of my favourite beers. There were four of these in my session case.
I drank one, gave one away and poured the other two down the sink. Aweful !

Picked up a Session 6 pack that included two cans of this. It has a flavour and aroma reminiscent of soda to me. It doesn't really feel like beer to me either. The orange peel is a little bit too prominent for me.

Pours hazy, pale straw gold and with a fat head of white foam . Some is creamy some is loose and it falls slowly but doe not leave too much lace. Nose is sweet wheat with honey and a nice citrus. Bright lemon peel and some fresh orange. A leafy hop herbal that turns grassy as the beer warms. A bit of cracker that you can smell . Drinks dry and crisp with wheat that appears thin tall and golden to the palate. A sweetness behind it that is light honey. A slight bitterness and a lovely bit of citrus fruit. That fresh orange really takes the drink. It’s puts the lemon to the side which stays only for a mild tartness. Finishes dry and with a light little aftertaste where the herbal kicks up once more. I like it very much. Refreshing, crisp and with a smooth mouthfeel that is creamy and has a soft few bubbles in it.

Pours cloudy straw with peach hints. The big foamy had recedes pretty quickly, leaving a few meandering trails of lace behind. The aroma is of lemon and Fruit Loops with some wheat malt in the back. The taste is softly malty with a strong citrus edge and coriander adding classic spiciness. Nutmeg and fruity yeast esters show with warmth. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a very luscious, creamy carbonation. Some sweet malt and a bit of citric tartness in the finish.

This is a good Witbier. It covers all the bases of the style well, but is a little watered down tasting - a common flaw with examples of the style IMO. Still, worth a try.
