I like amber beers. I like some wheat beers. So, the name caught my eye, even knowing that the terminology might not really tell me anything. Still, nothing else in the case was beckoning (well, okay, a couple of things were, but I was being cheap today, and they were too pricey, at least on this trip -- guess, by rights, I shoulda just bought Bud or something).
Anyway, this is a new spring seasonal from Anheuser-Busch (replacing what is now the Shock Top Belgian White, which has gone year-'round), brewed from February through May (this one was bottled in early-March). Reviews and tasting notes -- including from A-B -- describe it as caramelly, with lemon/citrus edges. I concur. Maybe even some banana chews thrown in the tank.
Also, I like it. Though its general reception by the beer-risters is mediocre, I found it awfully light and refreshing with a couple of slices of American cheese on a 90+-degree day in the Mid-South, after finishing 5K on the gym treadmill and walking back home.
Here are the particulars:
Anyone else found/tried this offering? Frankly, I'm going to put a 6-pack or two back while I can still find it around here. February's a long way off!
