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.

A-slightly cloudy, dark yellow brew with a white head without staying power.
S-orange peel and coriander
T-wheaty malt with plenty of sweet citrus and a bit of coriander.
M-a bit high on the carbonation with a decent mouthfeel.
O-this is a pretty sweet witbier reminiscent of blue moon. Like the style but there are versions that hit my Q spot better.

I had this on tap while out to eat which was the best option available.gold color with mild citrus aroma. It was easy to drink but that was sort of the problem.nothing really stood out and made me pay attention.still it was okay and would have it again but wouldn't seek it out.

Hazy straw color with little head from tap. Many carbonation bubbles. Very light citrus or melon scent ?? Mild and slightly wheat, hint of fruit. Not bad. Inoffensive
