Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States

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.

The beer was in a bottle, and was inviting because it was labeled "Belgium Ale." It was light on the tongue and milky -- SKIM milky -- on the palate. Had a metallic after-taste that barely buzzed me. Had no idea this was an Anheuser-Busch product, but after tasting it, I realized it was like having a Bud Light Platinum with slight creamy finish.

To put it simply, this is basically Budweiser with some orange thrown in there. That's pretty much all that I got out of this, in all aspects. Not the best of this style by any means; there are FAR better Witbiers out there...FAR BETTER. But if you're just looking for an easily drinkable beer and you're on a budget, I'd have to say this is better than most of the piss beers out there.
