Beer served with an orange slice?

The other week i went to a pub with some mates.
I saw people drinking this beer served with an orange slice...
What kind of beer is this?
I feel like im being jipped "flaming moe" style b/c many years ago i invented this drink which was corona served with an orange slice...

Those are white (witbier) beers, named for their white cloudy colour, and it's not uncommon have them with an orange slice in the summer. Some examples include Hoegaarden, and Rickard's White.

Yeah, I ordered a Rickard's White a while back and the waitress thought it was weird that I didn't want a slice of orange...I guess it's typically served with one.

I don't like fruit in my beer.

Save it for the slushy drinks in the islands, mon.

Utterly bland. Not a proper white beer.
