I would be tempted to call this a Witbier, since that apparently is why they named it "spiced wheat." However in flavor it seems like some kind of very light American wheat beer. It's a full percent of ABV less than Shock Top, if that gives you an idea.

There was virtually no foam on this pour, but coarse bubbles rise through the clear golden brew. Something like a bready note in the nose is quite pleasing, but that's as good as it gets. The flavor is fairly anemic and reminds me of grainy sparging water from your home brew. The bit of spice is indifferent, but there is a hint of orange that is pleasant. There is not any hint of wheaty or yeasty flavors that would suggest a Wit.

On tap at the Beach Chalet restaurant in a 14 oz Pilsener style glass.
