2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice citrusy aroma very little to no malt or hops. Golden yellow with thin white head. Nice mouthfeel, clean citrusy flavors not much depth. A bit artificial tasting with a clean short finish. Overall, nice entry-level wit selection but the color is not really suitable for style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, pale orangish color...decent white head.
Nose is most impressive, buzzing with citrus, and spice, almost perfumey, a delightful aroma, just right for a witbier.
Served with lemon, in this case, which I had to manually extrude from the pint glass's brim. Would have gone better with the fish dinner this accompanied.
At the fore, really tasty, full with fruit, big blast of hops, but somehow a touch sour, left me puzzled and dissatisfied. Produced a pucker on the palate, a tightness on the tongue.
Flavor sags some in the middle, too. It acts just like a witbier at the beginning, then quits halfway through, and I'm saddened by the paucity of body and texture...doesn't fail all the way, though, there's still some remnants of that spicey, fruity flavor, but they're too, too faint. Little finish, and once done, I'd forgotten what had happpened.
Followed this with a pint of Bell's Oberon, which bore none of those failings.
I can only be glad of the popularity of this particular beer, for at least these folks are trying something different. It's a pity, though, that so many think that they're actually drinking a product of Belgium, and I hope they move on to better beers.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 Best product that coors has its name on period. Plenty of citrus and subtle tones of spiciness. Overall a pretty decent entry in the white bier market.

Pours hazy yellow ith a white head. Very buttery malt aroma and taste. Body was creamy but lacked a good spice to the flavor. The flavor of this brew stays with you a while after you drink it, and while this may be appealing for most beers, this was not one of them for me.

Cloudy straw color with very thin white head. Served with a lemon slice. Enjoyable fruity aroma with a decent mouthfeel but rather low in flavor. Not bad just a little watered down tasting. My wife liked it, so I’m sure i’ll give it a second chance.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer is so incredibly overrated. I have it on several occasions, and it has never impressed. It does have promising superficial characteristics (aroma and apperance), but the flavor and after-taste are negative. Not favorable on the palate. For a belgian, it lacks any identify (except for being a crappy beer in my mind).

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 s’pose it’s 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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow beer whose head doesn’t 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.
