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.

Easily worst beer I have ever had. If given the choice between this and bud light I would take the bud light any day. Rancid cilantro taste that reminds me of the smell of the juice that collects at the bottom of a restaurant dumpster or the essence of crushed stinkbug. It is not as if I am not a fan of cilantro like many are not, in fact, I love cilantro so much I will eat the leaves straight. I have a stronger than average stomach and half of one of these left me wanting to puke for an hour. Grossest tasting anything I have ever tasted, including all food I have ever had. Will likely never buy or even drink again. Spent 9 bucks on this hoping for something citrusy and refreshing like a Corona with lime, but instead, in the legendary words of Reviewbrah: "My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined."

I've had this beer draft with an orange slice and in the bottle and I think it's fairly good. I would choose Shock Top over Blue Moon. It has a really nice true orange look to it and it is very drinkable. This beer is somewhat special to me as it was the first draft beer I ever had after turning 21.

Foggy burnt orange with a large off-white froth that settles in lumps to a steady collar and thin film.

Smell actually has a bit of metallic and astringent hop character to it, with a touch of orange peel and spiced, cracked wheat in there. It's not very aromatic though.

Taste starts with both the peel and flesh of orange, paired with wheat bread and a very faint Belgian wit yeast character. However, it's pretty much all orange-spiked wheat beer more than anything else.

Body is frothy but light with a crisp, tingly semi-dry finish.
