UPDATED: MAR 10, 2003 i hear this is good on draft. had a bottle that was free and thought it was all right. i wouldn't buy it unless there was nothing better. rerate: i had this bitch on draft and it was AWESOME! tasted like a bunch of peaches. started to lose a bit of that flavor as it warmed up, which was weird. if you have to have this beer, get on TAP!!! it is much better

Pours with a cloudy golden body topped by a medium thick lasting head with some lace left behind. Slightly sweet yet sour and citrusy (orange) aroma with vanilla and spicy notes. Sweet and citrusy (orange) flavor with vanilla notes. Not much of a finish. Light bodied, smooth and refreshing.

If this is standard for the style, then I must not like the style. Expectedly cloudy. Decent head but faded quickly. Bottle conditioned, with noticable yeast sediment. It was was a hard pour to leave the yeast in the bottle. There is just a flavour in this beer that I don't like. I'm not even sure how to describe it. Barely made it through the six pack.

I could see how this beer is one of the best macros on the site. I drank it while on the slopes of heavenly in lake tahoe CA. It was very refreshing...very clean....nothing special or worthy of shipping overseas but props to coors for making a not shitty tasting beer.

Good Belgian White, with thorough flavor, little aftertaste. Smooth clean texture.

I can't believe it took me so long to try this beer. It was like a poor man's Bell's Oberon. I'm not a wheat guy, but the spices were complimented nicely in it's sweetness... Certainly the best beer that Coors makes. Great for a macrobrew. Good job Colorado!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Hazy/cloudy golden color with specks of white hanging in suspension. Sweet orange and vanilla aroma. Thick feel, almost syrupy. Butter and pepper flavor along with sweet malt. Dry caulky finish.

The bartenderesse who served me this one asked if I wanted an orance slice with it. An orange slice? I really didn't want to ask why, so I just said no. It was a deal at $2.00 a bottle, a good introduction for those ignorant of such wheaty-type beers, but not a valid "Wheat Beer".
