Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States

Style: 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.

Nice beer, crisp and clean, not a whole lot of flavor, good for a hot day or to drink with spicy food, better with lemon, lime, orange wedge added to it. would buy again

They just started carrying this at the local Olive Garden. It is tasty and I like the way it looks ...cloudy with character. It's very smooth beer with a nice but minimal citrus taste.. if you like a smooth beer with some character, this is pretty good stuff. If you think your beer needs to taste like a hops covered shoe dipped in alcohol and with dirt added for color, this isn't going to cut it..

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice mix of citrus and grass, not overwhelming
Appearance- A murky golden yellow with a medium sized white head.
Taste- Has a nice flavor of wheat and a slight citrus backdrop
Palate- A light bodied brew with medium carbonation that has a crisp finish
Overall- Not a bad beer, middle of the road.

Great wheat beer. More suited to casual drinking with friends in the alley than with a meal.
