Excellent aroma and appearance, but yuck, mine had way too much cloves or coriander. Couldn't even finish it, and I LOVE wheat beers.

A beer that lacks everything, aroma, taste in the mouth, subtlety, a point of alcohol. Only to spare the fame that has, for me, too big.

Poured from a 12 oz into a weizen glass on 01.21.14.

A: Cloudy yeast at top. See through orange at bottom. 2 finger head.

S: Wheat, citrus. Orange.

T: Wheat, very light cloves from yeast.

M: Crisp, which is weird for a hef. More watery than I like.

O: This was pretty bland tasting. There was a tiny bit of sweet clove on the back end that helped a little to break the monotony of the watery mouthfeel. It was easy to drink and refreshing at least. Wondering why this was so bland, and suspicious of the lightweight and see through bottle, I found that this is owned by AB-InBev. Yep, I'm a newbie.
