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.

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.

This was probably my first venture into the whole "belgian" beer scene. Yeah its Coors and its not the greatest belgian white but it was good then, and its still not bad today. But like my friend tsarman said in his review, Iíd rather go with the Hoegaarden

Tasteed in Colorado (Vail). Tasted in pint glass. Unfortunately, it was served with a lemon in it, so the taste might be slightly biased. Neon yellow colour, thin white head, cloudy. Aroma of citrus and lemon. (Did I mention the slight bias?). Taste of wheat and lemon. Refreshing, but has very little spicyness and complexity found in this style of beer.

Overall I really enjoyed this beer. There was a pleasant hint of citrus in the aroma. Smooth, clean taste. Did not try it with an orange slice, but it had vague hints of citrus in the taste already. Overall, an actual quality product from Coors.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 12oz. Cloudy, lemon-colored, small white head, no lace, particulates. Citrus-clove aroma with a touch of musk, light aroma. Mouth is medium with lots of foamy carbonation, fairly dry beer. Flavor contains coriander, orange, lemon, wheat, a touch of clove, a weak hop profile. Sessionable. Bottled. Blonde beer, white head, didnít last well, didnít lace well. Malty aroma, some wheat and yeast. Flavor is blande sweetness with something else I donít care for. I didnít finish this beer. Lots of carbonation.
