Yellowish slight haze. Medium-light body with mild bitterness. Tropical fruit aromas. This seems to have significant amounts of citrus flavoring. Clean finish with mild floral hop notes. Certainly the best beer that Coors makes but still not great.

A bit a coriander and orange flavor, but that is about it. Another one of those beers that college students think is the best beer in the world.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2007 Considering it is made in a macro this is not a bad beer. Blue Moon was my first experience with a wheat, and while Iíve since found that the true Belgian beers are better this one will do in a pinch.

One of the worst Belgian ales I've ever tasted.....not impressed. Not as bitter as a belgian ale should be, but then again it's coors...so that speaks for itself

God, if more college students knew about this stuff.... The world would be a better place.

Coors actually made a beer that has nuances of true witbier. I'm impressed. Nice yeasty nose and flavor. Plenty of malt. I'm a fan. Thick ole head, medium bodied.

This is what people rave about??? This beer is confused as to what it is trying to be. Its got WAY to much coriander, not enough orange. Not enough wheat, lots of froth. Coors really needs to re-think this one....

(Bottle) Preface: I know zilch about Witbier. That being said, I like the malt and citrus aroma, not so wild about the hazy gold color, but it sounds like that is the trait of a witbier. The foamy head is very light and dissipates quickly, leaving almost no lacing. The flavor is OK- cardamon? is interesting, I like the wheaty aftertaste, even though I prefer a little more hops "bite" than this provides, but again, I'm not sure that's expected of a witbier. I'd have to be in the mood for this, but I'd drink it again. This is good enough to make me try some "true" Belgian Whites.

This is no Celis, but pleasant for a Coors product. It is even better when you can find it on tap.

This was pretty popular back in college. You were high class if you drank this stuff, and you probably listened to dave mathews if you drank this.
