This is a white? Looks more like an American unfiltered wheat, and flavor is the same - malty, low hops, very little complexity. Does have a nice creamy mouthfeel, but I expect a witbeer to have more of a spicy and yeasty zing to it.

Not a bad brew, but it has a weird aftertaste that takes a while to clear out of your mouth. This is making inroads in the Chicago area in bottles and on tap. I sípose itís an interesting change for folk. Light yellow with good body, it carries a fruity aroma with a hint of grasses - not uncommon in a wheat. Spicy finish. Not a bad attempt by Coors.

I really liked this for an every day casual beer. Went well with lunch, and went well with the Austen I was reading.

Light yellow beer whose head doesnít stand up too well for a witbier. Some soapy aromas, cereal, and peach. Thin mouthfeel with a chalky finish. Exceeded my expectations for a mass market beer, but not by a whole lot.

Orange in color with a white head. Smells like fruit loops. Taste is watery and fruity. Not much complexity. Tastes similar to a Sam Adams White ale w/o the hops. Very bland in taste.

This ia really a very good beer. The aroma of apricots and spice doesnít overpower the wheat and hops. It was served with a slice of arange and having sampled it both ways, I say keep the orange, for aroma matters.

Good mass market stuff, but pretty wipy when compared to some of the wheat smaller batches. Again, a good choice at the local grocery store.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Poured cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head with big bubbles...seemed too yellow...smells a little lemony and also like gummy worms...tastes very bland...very lightly spiced (if at all) with cloves and coriander...thin bodied, but the cleanest sweetest finish I have yet to find in a White...as bland as it is, it is still somehow flavorful (I know that goes against what I said previously) and refreshing...good late night summer sitting on the patio beer...

I had this on tap at the Reno airport of all places. The bartender said it was a heffewiezen but i didnít see any in the list so iím guessing it was this. Anyways, this was a decent beer especially compared to the other crap they had on tap. Decent taste but nothing special

Maybe it was because we just came off the golf course and needed an elixir, but I found this to be surprisingly pretty good. Cloudy pale yellow, citrus and fruit on the nose, some light wheat taste, good mouthfeel and quite refreshing.
