4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is an *excellent* Witbier! I was quite surprized at just how good it was. As is typical of the beer snobs, since this is brewed by some obscure American brewery in Tennessee, it gets a paultry rating...but such is the way things are in the extreme snobbery of the beer world (thank God we’re not in the WINE world where the snobber is even more frickin’ disgusting!)
Anyway, bottom line, this is a very fine Belgian White.

Stinks like the U.S. mint. Gives way to bread, grain, citrus. The taste is slightly metallic with yeast and some zest. This really could be worse.

An excellent choice. It has a crisp taste with a better than average aftertaste. I believe it to be better with the addition of a slice of orange. Better on tap than in the bottle. Very affordable, which being a college guy, price is definitely included in a beer rating.

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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
