Good aroma and taste. Nice wheaty appearance, good aroma, Pours a beautiful orange amber color. Served with a twist of orange really sets this beer off. Refreshing carbonation. Good beer!

Mass produced beer that is a welcome change from all the bitter beers Ive been drinking tonight. This beer is traditionally served with oranges which I dont particularly car for bit nonetheless gives it an exotic flare. The taste rings out with all sorts of citrus fruits from orange, lemon, lime, to passion fruit and kiwi. Also the combination of the citrus flavors combined with the wheaty nature of this beer makes it unique and a commonly asked for beer in many pubs. Nice appearance and nature so give it a go.

This beer taste and smells like fruitloops swimming in urine. seriously. I poured this out immediately and didnt even recycle the bottle. Memphis needs to stick to churning out good music and stop brewing Belgian whites.

A soapy aroma that smells like soap and lemon shavings. Murky yellowish white hue with small amount of head that dies. Flavor is zesty and of lemon shavings with a dash of spice or pepper. Only picked it up because it was a 6-pack on sale and it was a new item on the shelves.

Smooth enough thought it was a micro. Nice wheaty appearance, good aroma, smeet though citrusy. Refreshing carbonation

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2006 Even though I love Belgian whites I was disappointed by this beer. It smelled pretty good looked pretty good but didn’t taste like a true Belgian white should. #1 Its watered down #2 Its light fruity taste is somewhat off. #3 Astringent tasting hops. Having said that its better than most macro brews.

Really surprisingly good for a domestic wheat ale. Very tasty. Has a slight fruity aroma. Much better than most of the other beers in the Coors family. Too bad we can’t buy it in Oklahoma.

Looks like a witbier. Smells like a witbier (vanilla, yeast, orange zest). Taste like a terrible attempt of a macro to cash in on the witbier bandwagon. Quite simply, the tastes don’t mesh. It’s like the brewery decided to put in a dash of banannas, cloves, vanilla, orange zest and some hops and malts and hoped to God that they’d hit the right recipe. Coors missed the mark. Stick with the silver bullet, o’ banquet beer.
