BEER INFO

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.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Lightly hazed, pale yellow body with a tall, somewhat lasting, white head. Smell: Rather scant hints at pale malts and malted wheat before some slightly bolder, but still very, very mild notes of clove and orange peel. Taste: Pale malts swing towards a slightly tangy malted wheat with a mild, subtle sweetness. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium, though airy carbonation. Drinkability: Not recommended. The best part of the beer is the aroma. But the taste is too thin and evaporates after just a second or two. Very unsatisfying.

Poured into a pint glass. A hazy golden color with a half finger of head that was completely gone within 45 seconds.

Smells of honey and metal, but only faintly overall.

Tastes like water, mildly orange and bitter.

Light body, higher carbonation.

It's not offensive because it doesn't taste or smell like anything. I'm curious which spices it was brewed with because none of them come through.
