Not the worst brew Iíve ever had. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a white head. Taste is sweet, malty, citrusy and a little spicey. Doesnít taste like a true Belgian beer. OK

A nice but different type of beer. You can taste the different spices distinctly. I was impressed to see coors owned it.

A quite impressive spiced white from Coors. Similar to the Hoegaarden mold, but much less complex in taste. Nice summer beer.

Cloudy dark golden color...which I think is pretty. Quickly diminishing head. This beer has lots of potential on the first taste...flavors that could go more directions on the finish, but donít. Sweet, wheat, malty. Pretty sweet finish. Would personally prefer more hopps, but se la vie.

bottle - poured a nice head which disapated quickly - dark yellow - light malty smell incldes spice and citrus. The wheat taste is noticable, and a lightly fruity. Wheat sediment in bottom of glass when done. Very good beer coming from a macro-brewer.

This Witbier is suprisingly light-bodied and less wheaty than the Bavarian wheats. It is a great summer brew and a great inoffensive beer for everyone. It is light enough for the American lager favorers, yet complex enough for most afficionados of any style.

sethdude (702) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2004
Pours a hazy straw color, minimal head that dies quickly. Smells of banana, spice, and bubblegum. Flavor is citrusy, slightly malty, then citrusy again ending with a weak sweetness. No bitterness at all. Not good, but not bad.

Brewery--on tap. Pale yellow with a slight chill haze. Head is minimal. Nose: faint maltiness with citrus and a bit of spice, but subdued as hell as you would imagine from BMC. watery moutfeel.

Poured a large white head. Didn't last too long and no lacing. The brew is a hazy golden color. Smells fruity. Tastes of mild wheat with fruity overtones. This is a great beer from a major brewery.
