Draft at Lake Powell Lodge. Cloudy yellow. Does that really say owned by Coors? Not a bad drink at all.

not quite up to par against some of the witbiers i have had recently. didnt bring alot to the table in terms of aroma, just a slight sweetness. was much cloudier and yellowish than i consider spec. the flavor was also rather bland in comparison to hoegarden or victory. it did have a very crisp mouthfeel and an easy drinkability, but overall, i think this was a downgraded version of the family for the mainstream crowd.

Pours a hazy orange/yellow color. Lots of sediment floating around. Aroma is sweet and slightly yeasty. Some orange peel aroma as well. Taste is somewhat sweet and grainy. Some fruitiness as well. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Very hazy gold with some yeast bits settling to the bottom. Decent frothy white head. Aromas of citrus, banana, yeast, and some pepper. Very refreshing. Yummy coriander and spicy yeast flavors with a sweet wheat malt flavor from beginning to end. Is it Hoegaarden? Not Quite. Is it a very tasty, light bodied, refreshing BELGIAN style beer made by one of the so called big three evil brewers? Yes! Give props to Coors for making a style of beer the other big two wouldn’t touch, making it inexpensive, and making it availiable everywhere and with decent quality.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Draft - big citrusy, malty aroma. This is the best feature of the beer. I wanted to sit and smell, but felt obligated to drink it. Cloudy yellow to orange. Minimal white head. Flavor matches the aroma - sweet. Medium mouthfeel.

This is a cloudy brew from the Coors brewing Co. Although it seem’s they wouldn’t want you to know that. Afine craft brew that could use more attention simalar to a Hefe. pours up cloudy do to the unfitered yeast great with an orange wedge. and a steak or maybe on a nice summer afternoon on the pourch just relaxing.

Pours a cloudy, gold. Very small head that doesn’t last long at all. Not too much taste to talk about, but not a bad beer either. I could definitely drink a few of these though. Not bad at all.

cloudy orange color with noisy head. smells of citrus and some banana. very appealing. taste is sweet and pleasant, but maybe a little light on flavor. nice beer though.

Some nice flavour present, just not enough of it to satisfy. It is a good thirst quencher, but not an overly impressive beer. Nice cloudy pour.
