BEER INFO

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

Style: Belgian Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

Poured out of a 24 oz Can
Looks tremendous, hazy golden color, i've never disliked a hazy beer. Head dissipates before you even go to drink it, wow.
Smell is great, mix of fresh and bitter oranges, with wheat and lemon as well. Certainly can pick up the Belgium yeast as well. I like the overall presentation. Moderate carbonation.
Taste isn't as pleasant unfortunately. First thing i'm getting is play-doh flavor. I thought this would be similar to Blue Moon, but wow it is substantially worse. It tastes like fake orange flavoring and very strong coriander.
Buzz your girlfriend, Woof!
Well, never had one of these before, thought I would give it a try, and learned that it is really not a good beer, i don't think they really put enough time into this recipe. Gotta call it like you see it, grade is a C-

Budweiser by any other name is still a Budweiser. Bland! The look of this beer is the only saving grace, it resembles a Belgian witbier, but once you taste it, you’ll notice it’s not. Not impressed...

On tap at Oakland Intl Airport. Pale straw colour, white head. Typical witbier aroma and flavour of coriander and citrus / orange peel. Very refreshing, would be happy to drink this again. I suspect that it is underrated due to the ownership of the brewery - I was not aware that this was an AB InBev product, so I rated the beer for what it is.

Was expecting more from this beer being that I really like Belgian Whites. It just went down more like an adjunct lager than I’d expect, and the aftertaste was borderline offensive. Kind of tasted as if I poured half a glass of Blue Moon into half a glass of Bud Light. Eh.
