UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 Pours a light golden with a thin head of fine carbonation that quickly recedes. Aroma of spice and metal, slightly unpleasant. But I could just be looking for macro swill qualities. Tastes better than it smells. Citrus is the first thing I taste, presumably from the orange peel, hopefully not from any of the ’natural flavors’. This is a very misleading term and I wish the FDA would change it. I really do not taste the wheat, and that is why this beer is mediocre in my opinion. Not to mention it is brewed by Coors and shilled as Belgium beer. The aftertaste is questionable but not bad. The first witbier I ever brewed was better than this. I won’t refuse a Blue Moon, but you won’t find it in my fridge again.

First witbier Iíve sampled....somehow expected it to be darker. Pours a cloudy gold color with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma has hints of oranges, for sure. Taste is citrusy on the front and then spices in the finish.

Bottle, Plenty of head cause I poured it goofy, but it quickly disappated. Cloudy nice color a little to the red of golden. Inital odor is of oranges and coriander, as has been said, but below that there is a pungent smell that is not entirely pleasant, perhaps my bottle is old. Taste includes a little of the odor, a little bit of belgian yeast and malt, and then it goes a bit bland. Nice for a grocery store beer, but other beers are spoiling me vs. this.

Bottle. No head at all. Yes, I taste the orange and coriander but the problem with this beer is the lack of body. Yes its "unfltered" but close your eyes and you cannot tell. An option if you intend to drink more than two.

This stuff was allright. I expected more for the price of it for god sakes. Dont ever give me a beer with a freaking orange in it either! gay.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Served a translucent yellow with a thin white head and an orange slice, the orange is nice for appearance, but I decided to remove it. A really soft and sweet aroma, slight citrus and even slighter spice. The flavor was sweet and slightly spicey, with strong malt flavors. The body was good, the beer smooth, but it seemed to be a little light on the carbonation, perhaps due to the slice of orange. Overall a good beer, but Iíd rather have an Oberon, a Whitsun, or a Zoomer Wit.

I used to swear by this beer...now it agitates me. Doesnt hit me as true wheat beer, the haze is probably artificial. Flavor is rather weak as well. Still a refreshing Belgian with nice hints of orange and corriander.

Pours a cloudy, golden raisin color with a foamy white head. Tart, citrusy, and floral nose. Flavor depth is weak, almost non-existent. Touches of tart lemon, grass and yeast. Finishes tangy with a hint of hops. Smooth, easy drinking and refreshing. Has a good medium density to it. It has almost no flavor, but, oddly enough, is somehow enjoyable. Iím not really sure how that happened.
