BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States
anheuser-busch.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally known as Spring Heat Spiced Wheat

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.

L: Has an orange and amber look with a gold shine.

S: Strong essence of citrus.

T: The citrus is really not as apparent as you'd think with wheat being the most significant taste. Has got a light spice to it as well making it taste pretty dry. The aftertaste is not good. Should be used at the end of the night at a party. Tastes a lot better with an orange slice.

F: Goes down smooth

O: Really not that good of a beer. Flavor is not as vibrant as you'd hope and it makes your mouth dry with a bad aftertaste once finished.

Rather flat and uninspired. None of the kick of a cider with none of the smoothness of a Belgium white.

Poured from bottle into glass at home.

Look: Pours straw gold in color, moderately hazy with large white head. The head disappears faster than expected and

Smell: Smells of orange peel, coriander and wheat. No hoppy aroma.

Taste: Flavor of orange, spice, wheat and vanilla. No detectable hop flavor. No detectable alcohol flavor. Quite sweet and zero bitterness.

Feel: Smooth body. Full finish. Medium high carbonation.

Overall: This beer is inoffensive but uninteresting. The classic orange and coriander flavor characteristic of wits is turned up and the only flavors detectable. The sweetness is cloying and makes it so even though it is easy to drink, I do not want to reach for another.
