UPDATED: AUG 5, 2005 Iím not a big fan of whiteís and this is very typical of white beers. Kinda sweet and banana flavored, too sweet and fruity for my taste, give me an IPA.

This is the best beer i have ever tasted. Goes great with an orange. This was the first beer that made me really like to drink unfiltered wheat beers. I dont know where i would be without this beer no doubt i would still be drinking bud light like everyone i Know thank you Blue Moon.

This is coors best attempt at beer. One flaw though....your beer is just a rip off of hoegaarden. Itís almost as good, but not quite. I drink this when Iím at a bar and Iím in the mood for white beer(aka when Iím feeling girly and not manly at all)and they donít have hoegaarden. Even though Iím knocking it, it really does have a pleasant taste to it. Exceptionally smooth. But if you like white beer, pass this up for hoegaarden.

Not bad for an American effort at a Belgian White. Color is pleasingly opaque yellow with a head thatís just a little too disperse. Nose of light coriander and citrus (orange) and quite easy to drink despite the very slight astringency. The flavors are quite interesting, a mellow yeasty breadiness overlayed with a bit of malt and some nice spice and fruit from both esters and orange peel.

I really wasnít into this beer. When I think of a wheat beer usually a hefeweizen comes to mind. This reminded me too much of Hoegarden. It just was not my style.

I liked the unfiltered feel of this beer, nice color, very white fluffy head that lasted. I donít usually enjoy wheat beers but i liked this one. Light orange flavor, (had it with and without orange slice). Good beer for a big brewery!

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2005 on tap with an orange slice at Tracks Bar & Grill / orange juice with some champagne, then it becomes too acidic. yeah, but itís actually decent however plain it is.

On tap with and without the orange slice. Spicy with orange notes. Interesting. I will be exploring this category more to be sure.

On tap at local bar : light golden with average but fake head.Aroma and flavor is of citrus, some hops and wheat. Thin to medium-bodied, this is actually not bad, considering itís made by one of the worst breweries in the world.
