A bit a coriander and orange flavor, but that is about it. Another one of those beers that college students think is the best beer in the world.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2007 Considering it is made in a macro this is not a bad beer. Blue Moon was my first experience with a wheat, and while I’ve since found that the true Belgian beers are better this one will do in a pinch.

One of the worst Belgian ales I've ever tasted.....not impressed. Not as bitter as a belgian ale should be, but then again it's coors...so that speaks for itself

Coors actually made a beer that has nuances of true witbier. I'm impressed. Nice yeasty nose and flavor. Plenty of malt. I'm a fan. Thick ole head, medium bodied.

This is what people rave about??? This beer is confused as to what it is trying to be. Its got WAY to much coriander, not enough orange. Not enough wheat, lots of froth. Coors really needs to re-think this one....

(Bottle) Preface: I know zilch about Witbier. That being said, I like the malt and citrus aroma, not so wild about the hazy gold color, but it sounds like that is the trait of a witbier. The foamy head is very light and dissipates quickly, leaving almost no lacing. The flavor is OK- cardamon? is interesting, I like the wheaty aftertaste, even though I prefer a little more hops "bite" than this provides, but again, I'm not sure that's expected of a witbier. I'd have to be in the mood for this, but I'd drink it again. This is good enough to make me try some "true" Belgian Whites.

This is no Celis, but pleasant for a Coors product. It is even better when you can find it on tap.

This was pretty popular back in college. You were high class if you drank this stuff, and you probably listened to dave mathews if you drank this.

Draft: A little dark for a Belg. Wit style, but it has a nice lasting white head. Pleasant orange citrus aroma with hints of ginger; wheat malt and lightly sour aroma. I don't really pick up on any coriander, then again I'm in a bar! Slightly tart, yeasty, and wheat malt; lightly citrusy and acidic. Waitress comes by with a fantastic smelling rose floral perfume. Very nice, but not when rating a beer! Spicy flavor, but not clovey and I can't quite place it at this time. There is a little bit of a biting acidity, but oddly smooth mouthfeel and lighter body. Carbonation is on the high side. Much better on draft than from a bottle, and this is a pretty decent versin from an American brewery.
