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.

meh. This is just large corporate beer's weak response to the Belgian Beer trend in the U.S.

It is not a bad beer overall, but offers no complexity and a somewhat artificial orange flavor. To me there is something almost hollow in the way it tastes..like a fountain drink. Frothy, but not in a good way.

This is satisfactory for the novice palate, but you wouldn't waste your time on it if you know any better. That being said, if there wasn't anything else to drink I'd have one of these and wouldn't feel like I was suffering. It's drinkable, but mediocre.
