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

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2004
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.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 6, 2004
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.

Who would have thought that Coors could produce such an excellent beer. While it goes best with an orange slice and I usually do not like Belgian White... this beer just caught my attention.

Metalhead (634) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Had this on tap so Iím sure itís better than bottled. Hazy straw color. Ok head,full citrusy/orange and coriander nose. Start was pretty citrusy with coriander and mild peaches,very smooth tho the finish was a bit dull. Great summer beer.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Pours yellow/gold. It smells like faint berries, it had a blueberry floral taste to me. I donít exactly like this flavor, but it wasnít too bad.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Pale straw colored, appropriately cloudy, dazzling white cap of foam. Leaves no lacing; the foam slumps down the sides of the glass to beer level. Mild aromas of sulfury phenol, fresh hay, citrus zest, violets and sweet/sharp coriander. Mild flavor as well, tastes like Grape Nuts cereal with whispers of PineSol, potpourri, and baby aspirin. Interesting palate: light, crisp, and effervescent, slightly tart and oily at the same time. Clean finish, vague aftertaste of peaches, ginger, and flowers. Ok wit, if a little dull.

Fresh taste, hints of orange and pollen. Decent beer for its style, but falls short of remarkable.

Nice orangey taste. Very smooth and a new summer favorite along with Bellís Oberon.
