Very attractive, it looked excellent. Light golden with very white head. Aroma is light hops, some light grains, citrus, tiny bit of yeast and some banana. Taste is crisp and smooth. Some wheat and a tiny bit of that yeast and citrus again. Finish is very clean. This was over too quick. Wait... coors makes this? That canít be right.

Draft; so I see this one coming toward me with a slice of orange wedge in the top of the mug and I could not get the orange out of my head the entire taste. Orange-yellow color and hazy- reminded me of a glass of orange juice I had for breakfast. Small pure white head that deminished quickly. Orange aroma, orange taste, watery, lively carbonation. I think I just found my new breakfast beer!

Bottle dated Oct 09 153471T 05. Pours with slight head which fades fast like carbonated lemonade. Dark Mountain Dew/Mello Yello color, but with grassy shadows eminent. Slight hop smell mixed with stillgreensagebrush, tangerine, overripe but not repellant citrus. Rind. Peel. Nice bitter afterbite. First had this on tap at a Chicago style pizza joint in Lincoln, NE. If memory serves, bottles not quite as good as the tap (isnít that always the case?) but still very good. A nice white. Is it really brewed by Coors?Yellow bullet? Were it a woman, Iíd ask for a second date... then straight back to my place, or else.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Citrus aroma, good stuff. Mouthfeel almost like orange juice. Slightly effervescent. Cloudy body with a small white head and some lacing, Very drinkable, not a bad beer. Hard to believe this is brewed by Coors!

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Had this on tap. Poured a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Standard light witbier aroma, but light and watery on flavor and palate. Was able to pull out some citrus and ginger. Not a bad witbier, but nothing special.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 a bit light but has a nice taste that contains a little spice. i like this beer, love their pumpkin ale... one reason to look towards fall.

The taste is rather interesting, spicy is a way to describe it. The first one is alright, however after 1 or 2 that was enough of that.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 On draught. Pours yellow and cloudy, almost opaque with no real noticeable head. Smells lightly of oranges, coriander and bananas. Taste is watery with some coriander notes and a processed finish.

Smells like a witbier, looks like a witbier, but doesnt really taste like a witbier. Dont get me wrong, its a good cheap session beer, but it is completely forgettable. Not much to write about. Like I said, a good presentation for the most part, but lackluster taste. Pretty light and watery, like Hoegaarden.
