<font size=+1>Drinking Conditions: Pint glass, yeast not poured, 40°F temp.</font><HR> Pours misty orange with little to no head, lacing was non existent. Aroma is very much of a German wheat beer. Classic malt smell with undertones of clove and banana. Flavor is initially sour and cloying with a small effervescence of citrus hops but then the aftertaste kicks in and destroys all flavors with an unappealing dirty musky finish. The mouth feel is over carbonated, sour and bitter, makes me want to spit it out. Overall it has good aroma, but that's about it, now I know why they put an orange in it at the bar.

golden color with very shot lived white head. Slightly fruity flavor. mild bitterness and a sweet aftertaste. A mediocre example of a belgian white. I am very suprised that this is brewed by coors.

Head quickly fizzled out, zero lacing effect, cloudy orange/peach, very thin. The fact that it is made by Coors taken into account, it is a better beer than expected, yet I'm still not a fan of this style -- it's Okay, but nothing impressive in the least.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 A great tasting beer over all. What really got me was its smooth after taste. Although it is made by coors it is a good beer. I’ve had much better american made belgian whites but this wasn’t bad. A definate drink over any american macrobrew.

Wow, I didn't realise that Coors made this beer. It's quite impresive for that fact. An average beer but a good choice if you can't get the real deal.

A cloudy beer with light yellow color. This Wit is tasty, but thin. Good alternative style, but I'd choose an allagash anytime.

Hazy yellow color, as expected. Drinkable but nondescript, and I think pretty far inferior to other brew of this style I've sampled. Nothing bad here, and more than I'd have expected from the Coors folks anyway.

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2003
On tap, hazy gold orange color is pretty, but totally wrong for a wit. Taste is grainy, with orange zest and coriander on the finish. Reminds me greatly of Sam Adams Summer Ale. I tasted it side by side with a Hoegaarden, and it simply was blown away by the real Belgian.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2003
A solid wheat with a pronounced banana nose and that lovely summer back of the mouth wheat smoothness. I had it with an orange slice as opposed to the traditional lemon and found that it lent a sweeter and rounder taste.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2003 Wow, I dont know about this. This was one of my first ratings and I had it at a 3.4. That was when the average rating was in the low 2's. Now it is holding strong at a 3.07. But I gotta say. After having this again I am no longer much of a fan. THe nose is weak, kind of bland, Some wheat citrus thing going on, but just not pronounced. Some citrus in the taste but flat and stale. Thin bodied and quite unimpressive.
